Every time you support a podcast, either when streaming sats or sending a Boost, Fountain charges a 4% fee on top. The fee applies to each person or entity listed in the splits and the minimum fee for each split is 1 sat. PodcastIndex applies a 1% split to every podcast, which helps preserve, protect and extend the open, independent podcasting ecosystem. Other splits may also apply to the podcast you are listening to. You can view the splits for any show or episode by pressing the yellow Lightning bolt on the show and episode pages.
Note: You can reduce Fountain's fee to just 1% by signing up to Fountain Premium.
Claiming your show on Fountain is completely free and you can withdraw funds whenever you like with no fees. If you have claimed your show on Fountain and are using our Podcaster Wallet, Fountain gets added as a 4% split, which helps us to continue improving the service. A 1% split for PodcastIndex also applies to every podcast, as described above.
