A Swedish podcasting platform is offering podcasters the option to charge listeners in exchange for no ads
Wall Street Journal
Swedish podcasting platform Acast launched a new product on Monday that offers podcasters a new way to generate revenue. Called Acast+, the platform now offers podcasters the option to sell their product directly to listeners without advertising. Podcasters can set their own price, and revenue is then split with Acast. Listeners will have the option to buy a monthly “show pass,” ranging in price from $2.99 to $6.99 per month, or they can purchase podcasts individually.
