Frequently Asked Questions?

Here are some commonly asked questions from our creators, along with their respective answers. We aim to address the most frequent queries and provide helpful information.

Is this feature available on the app?

You can stream audio posts on our app. Yet, recording and uploading audio posts requires using the web version of Buy Me a Coffee. Our app is designed to cater to lighter use cases. However, our dedicated engineers are diligently working every day to optimize Buy Me a Coffee and its features for both the app and the web version. We are committed to providing the best user experience across both platforms.

Can I republish audio that has already been published on platforms like Anchor or Spotify?

Yes, you are able to do so, but it's important to ensure that it doesn't result in any potential copyright issues.

Is there a limit on the file size for audio uploads?

You can upload audio files up to 200MB in size on our platform, and the recording limit for audio is set at a maximum of 120 minutes.

Will there be a feature to upload the entire RSS feed directly?

At the moment, we do not offer the feature of importing podcasts through RSS feeds. Currently, we do not have any immediate plans for that, but it may be something we consider in the future.

Are the content and podcasts on Buy Me a Coffee searchable on Google?

Indeed, the content and podcasts on Buy Me a Coffee can be found through Google searches. However, we have implemented a requirement that the creator must have at least one coffee (purchase or donation) associated with his or her account for the content to be indexed. This measure is in place to prevent spamming activities.
