Transferring your podcast to Podigee (podcast import)

How does a podcast transfer work?

We'll take care of a smooth and safe podcast transfer from your previous host to Podigee.

You will not lose any listeners, and your podcast will remain available on iTunes (including ratings).

If you're already on Spotify, we can easily transfer your podcast to us as well.

Attention Soundcloud users: It is possible, that your podcast feed doesn't contain all your episodes, since Soundcloud does not add tracks to the feed if you not explicitly activated that feature. You can check if the feed contains all the episodes here (best viewed in Chrome or Firefox, search for <title> in the RSS-Feed-Text and check if any or the newest episode is listed): http://www.getrssfeed.com

If no episode is listed, please follow thees instructions: https://help.soundcloud.com/hc/en-us/articles/115003451347-Adding-tracks-to-your-RSS-feed

A podcast import usually takes 1-2 working days.

How can I request a podcast transfer? 

First, if you haven't already, you should create a new user account. You can do that here:  https://app.podigee.com/en/register

Next, you'll find the "Import existing podcast" button on your start page after logging in.

Transfer existing podcast

After clicking the button, you'll find a form to request a podcast transfer to Podigee.

Soundcloud Users:
Use http://www.getrssfeed.com for getting your feed url. Just put in your user url (example: https://soundcloud.com/user-XXXX) and your will receive the real feed url.
A Soundcloud Feed-Url looks like this: http://feeds.soundcloud.com/users/soundcloud:users:XXX/sounds.rss/

If you have several podcasts, you can transfer them as well. Just request the first one, then you'll be able to request more transfers.

Sadly, we are not able to transfer selected playlists as podcasts from Soundcloud, only whole accounts.

After the data import

Once your podcast is imported to Podigee, you'll need to redirect your old podcast feed to Podigee and keep it in place for 3-4 weeks.
After that time you can cancel your account with your previous hoster.
Note: Replace also all embedded webplayers (from Soundcloud e.g.) during these 3-4 weeks with the new Podigee webplayer on your website.

Redirecting your old feed to Podigee

Your Podigee feed will always end with a /mp3, e.g:

https://researchvr.podigee.io/feed/mp3

This is the URL that you need to add as a redirect target on your old hoster.
