Uploading a podcast on Spotify in 4 steps

Uploading your podcasts on Spotify is simple and will only take a few minutes. Just follow the steps below and you'll have your podcast up and running on Spotify in no time.

1. Copy your unique podcast RSS feed



Every podcast you create within Springcast has its own unique RSS feed. Before uploading your podcast, copy this feed to directories and players, such as Spotify.

1. Go to your Springcast account
2. Select the podcast you want to subscribe to Spotify
3. Select 'distribution'
4. Click 'copy' ( this button is located right next to the link)

2. Go to Spotify for podcasters



Spotify has a special environment just for podcasters, where you can find more information and submit your podcast. You will need to have a Spotify account in order to do this.

1. Go to https://podcasters.spotify.com/
2. Select 'log in' in the top right corner
3. Select 'get started' 

3. Submit your Springcast RSS feed



Now you can submit your Springcast RSS feed. Spotify will automatically check if all information is submitted correctly. If there are any errors, Spotify will flag them here.

NOTE: in order for Spotify to approve your RSS feed, you will need to add a public e-mail address. Make sure you use the same e-mail address you've submitted to the 'podcast settings' of your Springcast account. Spotify will use this e-mail address to contact you.

Below you'll find an overview of the steps to take.

If your podcast RSS feed is approved by Spotify, Spotify will ask you for more information about your podcast. Submit the relevant information, select Springcast as your hosting provider and select 'next'.

2. Select 'next'
3. Check data
4. Select 'submit'

If you complete these steps, Spotify will review your podcast. If your application is approved, your show will be live on Spotify.
