What you need to know
- Apple is launching the Apple Services Performance Partner Program for Apple Podcasts.
- The affiliate program earns you money for referring someone to a paid version of a podcast.
You'll soon be able to earn money from referring people who subscribe to Apple Podcasts.
Last month, Apple announced Apple Podcasts Subscriptions, which will allow podcasters to charge a premium tier to their podcast directly in Apple Podcasts.
As reported by TechCrunch, Apple is also rolling out the Apple Services Performance Partner Program for Apple Podcasts, a new affiliate program for Apple Podcasts Subscriptions.
For example, if you refer someone to a podcast who signs up for the premium tier that costs $10, you'll receive a $5 commission. Podcasters themselves can also use the links to earn incremental revenue on their own podcasts from new subscribers. The program has an approval process, of course, to ensure that those making the referrals are qualified to do so.
The program will be available in all 170 countries and regions where Apple Podcasts Subscriptions are available. You can learn more about the program on the Apple Podcasts for Creators website and apply for the program on the Apple Services Performance Partner Program page.
