Submitting Your Podcast to Spotify

Submit your podcast on Spotify with Acast—and have it accepted within an hour.

Updated over a week ago

Spotify is one of the most popular platforms people use to listen to podcasts. Submitting your show is quick and easy, directly from Acast.

How do I submit my podcast to Spotify?

Note! If your show is already available on Spotify (in case you came from a different hosting platform), you shouldn't activate the integration at Acast. This can result in duplicate shows on Spotify. Just make sure to update your hosting information instead.

If your show is being submitted to Spotify for the first time, then follow the instructions below:

  1. Go to your show on Acast

  2. Click the Distribution tab.

  3. In front of the Spotify icon, click "Activate" to submit your podcast to Spotify.

  4. Click the activate button next to "Spotify", and accept the terms to submit your show.

Frequently asked questions

How long does it take for Spotify to approve my show?

Most shows are online and active within just one hour. Bear in mind that acceptance onto Spotify's platform is subject to Spotify's processes and content policies, and that your show cannot contain any unauthorised use of music.

The Spotify for Podcasters dashboard

You can also view and submit your podcast on Spotify itself, and view a dashboard containing additional analytics about how your show is being consumed on Spotify.

If you do not recognise the email address they display, this could be due to the email mask which can be easily updated from your Settings.

Can I see my Spotify numbers in Insights?

You can see the Spotify statistics in Acast's Insights. Head to your Insights dashboard. From there you will see your Spotify download information under the Podcast Players tab.

Spotify is sending me a code but I am not receiving it on my email?

Acast masks the email address in your RSS feed to help you avoid unwanted spam, since this email is otherwise public. We forward mail from any legitimate sources to your email address on file. These forwarded messages sometimes end up caught up in a filter and might not reach you.

You can exposed your email address—to receive the code—by turning off the email mask. We recommend turning it back on afterwards.

Removing your show from Spotify

The submission cannot be reverted from Acast. If you need your show to be removed from Spotify, please reach out to their support team.

Visit their podcasters' Help Center and click "Message us!" on the right side to chat with their support team.
