How does overage work?

Sometimes you need more time than your monthly allowance. Maybe this is for a bonus episode or that perfect interview that couldn't be cut down. When this happens, don't worry, you don't have to upgrade to the next pricing tier!

All of our Buzzsprout plans come with the ability to go over your allowance and pay by the hour for overage! Overage hours are priced individually and range from $2/per hour to $4/hour depending on your monthly plan.

You don't need to purchase this overage ahead of time. As you upload episodes over your allowance we will add the overage and the charge will show on your next invoice. You will be able to monitor your allowance and overage on the tracker on your Episodes page in your account.

Overage Example

Here is a breakdown of the overage prices for each Buzzsprout plan:

  • On the $12/month plan, the overage is billed at $4 per hour.
  • On the $18/month plan, the overage is billed at $3 per hour.
  • On the $24/month plan, the overage is billed at $2 per hour.
