With Captivate’s awesome Memberships and Tips features, it’s never been easier to allow your listeners to support your podcast, either with a one-off donation or a monthly subscription. As always, Captivate is dedicated to helping you make money from your podcast, which is why we’ve kept fees for this feature to a minimum.

Here are the Captivate and Stripe fees for each feature.


  • Captivate’s revenue share: 12%

  • Stripe fees: 2.9% + 30¢ per transaction

  • Total fees: 14.9% + 30¢ per transaction


  • Captivate’s revenue share: 5%

  • Stripe fees: 2.9% + 30¢ per transaction

  • Total fees: 7.9% + 30¢ per transaction

Withdrawal fees

When making a withdrawal, Stripe will charge a withdrawal fee of 0.25% + 30¢ to your bank (Captivate doesn’t take anything from this). It’s up to you how often you withdraw, once the minimum withdrawal balance has been met.

Your overall earnings

Your earnings will reflect the amount left after the total fee and withdrawal fee has been deducted. So, as an example:

  • Membership earnings: $100

  • Captivate revenue share: $12

  • Stripe fee: $3.20

  • Total fee: $15.20

  • Your earnings: $84.80
