Pricing & Features FAQs

Free podcast hosting does suit some podcasters however there are limitations such as upload space, amount of shows, limited analytics etc.

We want to help podcasters grow their shows, which can be hard with limited features.

All of our plans have the same features, the only difference is the number of monthly downloads that are included.

This all depends on what you are looking for in a host and your level of podcasting:

  • Personal (30,000 downloads) is ideal for most podcasters as its a great starting point for those who have a small audience but want to grow.
  • Professional (150,000) is better suited for the more advanced podcasters who already have a larger audience.
  • Business (300,000) is best for Networks, as well as agencies or professionals who manage podcasts on behalf of clients.

We won't stop your podcast if you go over your limit, we want your show to grow.

For example, if you have a personal account and go over 30,000 downloads in a month, that's OK. If you go over the limit for a second month in a row, we will reach out and let you know that you need to move to the next tier.

Your show won't go offline or be unavailable to your listeners.

As many as you wish. If you have 100 podcasts these can all sit on Captivate. We charge by number of downloads, so these will be spread across the different podcasts you have.

Whilst we don't offer free packages, we do offer a 7-day free trial, meaning you get to try before you buy.

Our dashboard is super clean and easy to navigate. It's easy to upload, publish, distribute and more. It's also easy for those starting a podcast or importing from another host.

Our support team is on hand to answer any questions, so 7 days is plenty of time to get a feel for Captivate.

Yes, we do offer discounts. Students, educational organizations, registered charities and non-profit companies get a 25% discount across all plans. Reach out for more details.

We have a fantastic support team who are on hand to answer any questions that you may have, or any issues that you encounter.

When you are logged in to Captivate, in the bottom right of the screen is where you can chat to our support team.

You will usually get a response within an hour, but we do run reduced hours at the weekend and during bank holidays.

We're sure you won't want to leave us but yes you can cancel your account with us. Underneath the Billing section, you'll see the option to Cancel Account. Then simply follow the steps to cancel, making sure any current shows are managed accordingly eg deleted or redirected to a new host.
