Support the Show Link

Listener support in the form of donations is a great way to let your fans give back. That's why Buzzsprout makes it easy for you to ensure a link to your payment, membership, donation, Patreon, etc., is included in the description of every episode.

Setting this up is very simple. 
  1. Just go to your Monetization page 
  2. Click on the Support the Show Link tab. 
  3. Just drop the link in there!

The donation link is displayed on your Buzzsprout provided website and in any other podcast player app that supports HTML in show notes.

Buzzsprout conforms to the payment button standard created by Marco Arment, creator of Overcast.

"Overcast is the first podcast player to support this initiative and we hope they are not the last. With any luck this simple standard will find a home in other podcast players, making it easier for podcasters to garner listener support. Podcasters and CMS makers: Next version of Overcast looks for a link in every episode's show notes with <a rel="payment">. If present, Overcast adds a nice green "$" button on the Now Playing screen that opens up that donation/Patreon/membership URL of your choice."
