So you’re switching to Acast. Smart choice! But how do you do it?
1. Import your RSS feed on Acast
If you haven’t already done it, create an account with Acast and log in.
Then choose to add a New show > I want to import my existing show.
If your show is already on iTunes, just search for the name, and it will come up. If not, you can simply enter your existing podcast RSS feed URL, something like https://actest.podigee.io/feed/mp3
Once the import is complete, you'll be sent an email including your new Acast RSS feed URL. It will be something like https://feed.acast.com/public/shows/mypodcast
This is your Acast feed URL. Copy it to your clipboard.
2. Redirect your feed from Podigee to Acast
First you need to find your new Acast RSS URL. Log in to your Acast Dashboard and select your show. Select Settings.
Scroll down to your Podcast RSS Feed, and copy your RSS Feed URL.
Next, redirect from Podigee by logging in here.
Select your show.
Click More Options.
Insert your Acast RSS feed in the <Itunes: new-feed-url> fieldSave the record.
Important Note: Even after you redirect your feed, we recommend that you keep your original service for 1 or 2 weeks longer just to be sure that all of your followers have migrated over.
How to check if your redirect is complete
Podigee may send you a confirmation if the redirect has been done. However, you can check it's been completed yourself by inspecting your RSS feed.
Open a new browser tab and paste your old RSS URL. If the redirect has completed successfully, you should be taken automatically to your new Acast RSS feed. Note: Google Chrome in Incognito Mode is recommended for inspecting RSS feeds.
If you have any issues, feel free to contact Acast Support.
