Uninterrupted subscriptions


If you already monetize with Ambassador Ads or Automated Ads, you can earn even more money by offering Uninterrupted subscriptions to your most loyal fans at a monthly price point of your choice.

Fans who pay for an Uninterrupted subscription hear all your episodes without any Spotify for Podcasters-inserted ads - including episodes from your back catalog.

You can also publish subscription-only bonus episodes for your paying subscribers.

Note: Subscribers can only access your Uninterrupted episodes on Spotify.

Activating Uninterrupted subscriptions

  1. Go to your Money page and click Learn more in the gray banner beneath the Host-read ads or Automated Ads section.
  2. In the modal window that appears, confirm you don’t include pre-recorded or “baked-in” ads in your episodes and click Set up Subscription.
    Note: We can't remove pre-recorded ads from your episodes.
  3. Select your monthly price.
  4. Finish set up and add a subscribe link to your podcast description.

Note: Uninterrupted subscriptions are available to US-based creators who currently earn with Ambassador Ads or Automated Ads but don't have Podcast Subscriptions or Listener Support enabled.

This setting is automatically applied to all your eligible episodes. It's not currently possible to exclude individual episodes from your subscription.


What’s the difference between Uninterrupted subscriptions and Podcast Subscriptions?

Uninterrupted subscriptions are a type of podcast subscription which enable creators using Spotify for Podcasters' ads products to offer an uninterrupted version of their show to paying fans on Spotify.

How can I recognize Uninterrupted episodes in the Spotify app?

Episodes contain the word [Uninterrupted] before their title. Episodes are marked with a lock icon in place of the play button. When a fan hits the lock icon, they're directed to a payment page to subscribe.

Can subscribers access my Uninterrupted episodes on other listening platforms?

Uninterrupted episodes can only be accessed on Spotify right now. We're working on expanding to allow subscribers to listen to uninterrupted content on other platforms.
