From there, you can paste your RSS feed into Spotify.
Step 3. Next, add your podcast’s details like the category, language, country and your hosting provider (select RSS.com if you are hosting with us).
Step 4. Review the details and submit.
Great job, you’re done!
Are You Receiving Errors When Submitting Your Podcast to Spotify?
Sometime users will receive an error message in Spotify when trying to add their podcast’s RSS feed.
Below are two of the most common errors and how to fix them:
1. Your podcast needs a globally unique identifier (GUID)
This means that your podcast feed is empty because you haven’t uploaded an episode to your podcast host. Until you do, Spotify won’t be able to find any episodes and will reject your show’s RSS feed.
After you upload the first episode, you can then resubmit your podcast’s RSS feed here, and you should be good to go.
2. Your podcast RSS feed is missing an email address/your email needs to be verified
You need an email address associated with your RSS feed which is pulled from the RSS feed for your podcast. Spotify relies on email verification to ensure you’re the owner of your podcast.
If the email address to verify your podcast is wrong, you’ll need to update the email address with your podcast host.
How Long Until Your Show is Live on Spotify?
Now that you know how to upload a podcast to Spotify and how to troubleshoot any errors you may get, you’re probably wondering how long it will be until your show is live.
Many shows are live within just a few hours, but it could take up t0 five days to appear.
At this time, Spotify doesn’t email you to let you know that your podcast is live, so you’ll need to keep checking back with Spotify.
