Prepare for annual subscription plans
Since Apple Podcasts Subscriptions launched, creators have been able to offer annual billing plans alongside monthly plans for their subscriptions. In a future software update, creators will be able to better present annual plans to new subscribers using the new plan picker. The plan picker appears when listeners tap Subscribe or Try Free on a show or channel with a subscription. When an annual plan is lower than the cost of a monthly plan, the picker will display how much listeners can save by choosing an annual plan.
Set up an annual plan
Creators can ensure an annual plan appears by adding a yearly price to their subscription in Apple Podcasts Connect. Learn how to set up a subscription with a yearly price and manage subscription pricing. When an annual plan is lower than the cost of a monthly plan, the picker will display how much listeners can save by choosing an annual plan.
Subscribers interested in moving to an annual plan from a monthly plan can go to the Listen Now tab and tap the Account button. Tap Manage Subscriptions, then tap the desired podcast subscription and choose an available annual plan.
Before they’re available on Apple Podcasts, subscriptions are reviewed to ensure they comply with our content guidelines.
