Back in April Spotify announced it would begin testing Podcast Subscriptions as a way for creators to offer paid subscriber-only content. As of Wednesday, subscriptions are now available to all U.S. podcasters.
The service will be free to podcaster until 2023. After that there will be a 5% charge. In addition to publishing subscriber-only content directly to Spotify, Anchor will also provide creators with private RSS feeds that can be used by listeners on other platforms.
Spotify also announced it was rolling out updates to the product based on what the company learned during the testing period: - They will be expanding the number of pricing points to 20 options that can be chosen by the creator. - They will now also offer the ability for podcasters to download a list of contact addresses of their subscribers.
