The following is a list of common questions from competition participants. We’ve included these abbreviated answers for convenience only and official wording is found in the Paid to Podcast Competition Rules.
The Grand Prize Winner is the eligible entrant who achieves the highest Monthly Recurring Revenue (MRR) through their Supercast podcast account in the two (2) full calendar months during the Competition Period in which the entrant’s MRR was highest. The 3 entrants with the next three (3) highest MRRs will be the “Runner-Up Prize Winners”. You can only win one prize per entrant.
The Monthly Recurring Revenue is determined by the sum of all subscription sales transacted on Supercast.com during the competition period, less any discounts, chargebacks or refunds. MRR includes monthly recurring payments and 1/12th of annually recurring payments, but does not include one-time payments.
Sales must be for the individual podcast, and bundle sales will not count. Only the first $100 of a monthly recurring payment or the first $1200 of an annually recurring payment will count.

No, only recurring revenue counts towards your MRR for the competition.
Yes, but these sales will not count towards your MRR for the competition. Supercast supports custom integrations for customers that would like to use their own website to sell and manage subscriptions, with Supercast powering the private podcast feeds. Unfortunately, podcasts on our custom plan are not eligible for the competition as we need to process subscription payments on Supercast in order to accurately determine your Monthly Recurring Revenue.
We’ve seen first-hand how powerful the premium membership model is in helping podcasters build incredible, sustainable businesses around their passion — all while retaining full independence and control over their relationship with their audience.
It’s never been more important to diversify your revenue streams (especially for those dependent on ad revenue), but many podcasters still aren’t aware of the potential of subscription podcasting. So we’re launching this competition — with world-class mentors and resources — to educate podcasters everywhere about the profit potential of subscription podcasting.
You don’t need to do anything beyond entering the competition. Tiny loves wonderful, sustainable businesses that can make a lasting impact, like Canadaland and Ride Home Media. Creating a paid membership for your podcast will go a long way towards this.
