When fans visit your PodInbox fan page, they can easily support your podcast with simple credit card payment.
They can make one of your suggested payments, or customize their payment of any amount!
To start accepting fan donations on your show page, just go to your PodInbox dashboard, create & connect a free Stripe account, and toggle monetization on!
Stripe is our 3rd party payment processing partner.
Stripe is the industry standard payment processor that allows you to accept fan credit card payments on your PodInbox page. It handles all the credit card storing, payment processing, refund management, and connecting to your personal bank account for payouts.
PodInbox collects 0% fees with our Pro and Business plans, and a small 5% transaction fee with our Free Hobby plan.
Stripe does collect some payment processing fees for handling credit card transactions. This transaction fee is an industry standard norm for credit card processing. This Stripe fee is typically 2.9% + 30¢ per transaction.
Yup. Often, we see that most fans want to give a 1-time donations to their favorite podcasters.
We'll also be rolling out a recurring donation feature soon, which will let fans automate their donations on a monthly basis.
We have it set to automatically payout your available balance on Stripe on a daily basis.
Since Stripe is your official payment processor, we abide by their rules on when payments will be available in your payout balance, which sometimes depends on your location and Stripe account status.
Well first, we think podcasters can use both! No need to pick just one fan monetization platform.
In our opinion, a good place to ask fans for support is where you're already engaging with them!
While Patreon focuses on monthly recurring subscriptions for fans, we think a lot of fans want to make 1-time donations. With PodInbox, we created a pretty fun and simple monetization system based on 1-time donations!
We've designed PodInbox to be much more focused and fan engagement and gamification than any other fan monetization platform available!
Our motto is, let's make fan monetization more fun and rewarding for both podcasters and their fans.
We're glad you asked! We are constantly adding more features to make PodInbox a powerful, easy-to-use audience engagement tool for Podcasters...and we appreciate your feedback to help make that happen!
