Donations are a great way to let your fans support your show! So Buzzsprout makes it easy to link to your payment platform (Cashapp, Buy Me A Coffee, Patreon, etc) by including it in the description of every episode!
You can easily set this up in your Buzzsprout account.
- Just go to your Monetization page
- Click on the Support Show Link tab.
- Then add your link there and we will take care of the rest!
We will include your Support link on your Buzzsprout-provided website, in your episode descriptions, and in any other podcast player app that supports HTML in show notes.
If you don't have an account set up to accept support from listeners, you can add that within Buzzsprout using Buzzsprout Subscriptions
! If you have an active Buzzsprout Subscription on your account we will autofill your Support the Show field to include the link to that subscription page. Then your listeners will be able to easily support your show!
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."
