Payouts and Revenue Split for Podcaster and AdvertiseCast
Once accepted into our podcast partner program, we split the ad revenue with you 70/30 - you, keeping 70%. No additional fees are required. Payouts are released 30 days after you have marked a spot complete in our system, reported the reach on that spot, we have received funds in full from the advertiser, and the total amount you're owed is $20 or more.
Does Glow require listeners to download a new app?
No. Listeners can pay you and listen to premium content wherever they like to listen. Glow works with major podcast players, including Apple Podcasts, Overcast and Pocket Casts.
If I already have a membership program, can I use Glow?
Absolutely. You can create a members-only podcast and share it to current members through Glow.
Do I need bonus content to get started with Glow?
No. You can use Glow to collect donations from listeners directly, whether or not you have premium content.
Does Glow work with video?
Make exclusive video one of your membership benefits—either a video version of your podcast or new content all together. Go here and click on “Offer members more benefits.”
What payment types does Glow accept?
They can, but they’d have to try really hard. We monitor for feed piracy to make sure your private content doesn't get into the hands of people who didn't pay for it.
