Hey PodInbox community! We are SUPER excited for this announcement...as this is our BIGGEST new feature released since our launch!
We're proud to announce that starting today, you can now receive monetary support from your podcast fans on your PodInbox show page! Whether you're already using another platform to collect support, or have been thinking about it...you can now monetization on PodInbox!
Why This Matters
When we launched PodInbox, we knew from day 1 we wanted to support fan monetization. But we first launched with was fan messages. We did this cause we believe that fan engagement comes first...then fan support follows. When you, as a podcaster, engage with your fans...then your fans will be compelled to support you monetarily.
That's our ethos, and that's how we designed our monetization feature. We're different from other fan monetization platforms, in that fans come to your PodInbox show page to engage with you, as well as to give!
It's a nuanced difference, but a huge one. This, along with a handful of other subtle differences, like donation gamification, leaderboards, custom thank you emails, etc...is what will help you be successful in the new creator economy using PodInbox.
How It Works
To activate monetization on your PodInbox show page:
- Create & Connect Your Stripe Account
- Customize Your Settings
- Activate Monetization Feature
How Much it Costs
Now, you're might be wondering, how much does this monetization feature cost?
Well, if you have a paid PodInbox subscription, we charge ZERO fees to activate and use this feature! Yes, to reiterate, we charge $0 fees for podcasts on PodInbox Pro and Business plans.
But, Stripe, your connected payment processor, will charge you a standard fee of 2.9% + 30¢ per transaction. This is a pretty typical and unavoidable fee to payment processors to support credit cards transactions.
Over the course of the next few months, we're dedicated to making our monetization feature even better, as our mission is to help podcasters engage with fans, grow their show, and make money.
On our roadmap, we have features like message tipping, reward levels, and a smattering of upgrades big and small to make our monetization experience great for both you and your superfans!
