Frequently Asked Questions

Do all Simplecast Plans allow me to distribute my podcasts to all listening apps? keyboard_arrow_down

Yep. If you’re just getting started on Simplecast Basic or you’ve grown your show into a chart topper, all plans offer direct publishing to all platforms, like Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Podcasts, and Overcast - just to name a few.

Why would I pay for podcast hosting, when some provide it for free? keyboard_arrow_down

Most times, when you don’t pay for a product, you are the product. Being part of a paid platform gives you the confidence to know you are supporting it’s growth and innovation, and it’s staying power. Still, Simplecast offers much more than just reliable hosting for your RSS feed and podcast. We are invested in your success with an industry leading support team (most of whom are professional podcasters themselves). Simplecast also provides you with Recast and web player, a beautiful website for your show, and the industry’s most robust analytics platform, allowing you to best understand who and where your listeners are. Still have questions about how we’re different? Hop into the chat, below, and ask our support team - we’re ready to answer any questions you have.

Do you run ads on my podcast without my permission? keyboard_arrow_down

Nope. Not a single one. Your content is owned by YOU and you alone. Simplecast does not alter your audio in any way. When and how you monetize your show is up to you, we’ll not force anything upon you.

Do you really provide unlimited audio storage with all plans? keyboard_arrow_down

Absolutely. Who are we to put limits on your creativity?!

What happens if I hit the download limit for my plan? keyboard_arrow_down

You will never be billed a higher rate than the plan you have agreed to, nor will you ever be auto-upgraded to a different plan if you exceed the download limit for your plan. These are merely “soft limits”. If you’re outgrowing your plan, month after month, our team will reach out to help you find a solution that is better suited for your show’s growth.

Can I cancel anytime? keyboard_arrow_down

On our Basic, Essential, and Growth plans, you’ll be billed monthly and can cancel at any time. There’s no long-term agreement, and you can delete your Simplecast-powered podcast at any time. You will not be billed for a podcast after you have cancelled it.
On a Professional or Enterprise plan? Check your contract for termination and renewal details, and reach out to your account rep for more info!

Can I switch to a different plan anytime? keyboard_arrow_down

If you’re on our plans for independent podcast creators (Basic, Essential, and Growth), you can change your plan at any time, whether that’s an upgrade or a downgrade. Your changes will be prorated and reflected on your following month’s invoice.
