podcasters can monetize their shows by providing Early Access and Exclusive episodes to their fans through Apple Podcasts Subscriptions. You can publish subscriber shows and episodes directly from your dashboard, making it easier to grow subscriptions on Apple Podcasts.

Through this direct integration with Apple Podcasts Subscriptions, podcasters can now create, upload, manage, and directly distribute their free and premium audio through their podcast hosting account, eliminating the need to upload free and premium content through multiple dashboards.

By setting up Apple Podcasts Subscriptions for your podcast, you can earn monthly revenue and your listeners can support your content.

To get started with Apple Podcasts Subscriptions you will first need to:

  1. Create an account

  2. Set up an Apple Podcasts Connect account

  3. Distribute your podcast on Apple Podcasts

  4. Join the Apple Podcasters Program

  5. Finally, set up your subscription and submit your show to Apple for review

From there, you promote as you normally would, and when listeners pay for an Apple Podcasts Subscription to your show, you receive monthly income.

After you’ve set up your account and subscription, if you’re ready to get started with Apple Podcasts Subscriptions and publish your first subscriber episode, we invite you to check out our step-by-step guide on the blog and learn how to do it.
