6. What is the premium viral feature?
The premium viral feature allows you to use your own banner, rather then our banner and to have your own domain associated with it. It allows you to use your own branding, rather than premiumcast.com
7. What are personal broadcasts?
Personal broadcasts allow you to send a message to an individual subscriber. This changes the way you can communicate with your audience. Now you can speak to one person directly.
8. How do I get affiliates?
In order to have affiliates, you need to have our viral account. In there you will setup for affiliates and then let people know they have to sign up for a free account at premiumcast.com, or your own personal link found in the “Affiliate Manager -> My Affiliates” tab, and then sign up to be an affiliate to promote your product.
9. Can I list my premium podcast in ITunes?
At this point ITunes does not allow for the sale of podcasts, as a result, you can’t sell your premium podcast on itunes. You can, however, list free/unpaid/regular podcasts created with the premiumcast system on ITunes.
10. Do I need to get a shopping cart?
No, but you will need a merchant account to accept credit cards. You can use 2Checkout, Paypal, or Authorize.net by setting them up in your account profile located at My Acount –> Profile/Preferences.
11. Do you host my files?
No. You will already need to have hosting as you will be linking to these files. If you need hosting, a good place to go would be www.1placeforeverything.com
12. Do you take a percentage of my profits?
No. You keep everything.
13. How do I take credit cards?
Easily. Premiumcast works with Authorize.net, 2Checkout, and Paypal. You can set these up in the My Acount –> Profile/Preferences tab.
14. How does the physical disk option work?
You need to have an account already with konaki. You will simply set up that option beforehand, in the My Acount –> Profile/Preferences tab, then link to the product.
15. Must I use your branding?
No. If you want to have your own branding, you can do that. You can setup your banner and customize the buttons when you setup your product/membersite.
16. How can I protect my feed from those who don’t pay?
Premiumcast.com is setup so that only those who pay to get your podcast/product/feed will get it. No one else can access it.
