Lifetime Subscriptions 🤝 Native Audio

See what's new @ beehiiv...

There’s never been a better time to launch a paid newsletter on beehiiv. Perhaps, even a paid newsletter with a podcast.

With today’s updates, a whole new world of possibilities exists within the beehiiv ecosystem…

Let’s break it down 👇️.

Lifetime Subscriptions

Prior to today, you could launch a paid newsletter and allow your readers to pay either monthly or annually.

With the launch of lifetime subscriptions (i.e., one-time payments), you can allow readers to make just a single payment for lifetime access.

Adding one-time payment option

When creating a new premium tier, you can toggle on which payment options you’d like to offer your readers, along with the associated price:

  • Monthly

  • Annually

  • One-time NEW  

Readers will be able to choose from the available options on your upgrade page and select which payment option to proceed with.

This unlocks a truly limitless amount of opportunities to help monetize your content. Here are a few examples:

  • Offer early-bird pricing with a one-time payment.

  • Launch an email-based course using automations.

  • Sell a digital product that can be accessed via a one-time payment.

As always, beehiiv takes a 0% cut of your subscription revenue — unlike the other options out there.

Note: Premium Subscriptions are only available to users on paid plans. You can learn more and/or upgrade here.

Audio Embeds

Newsletters 🤝 Native Audio.

You can now upload and embed audio files directly into the beehiiv editor.

Adding an audio embed

You can edit and customize both the album artwork and the file name that is displayed to your readers.

  • By clicking in email → readers will be redirected to listen to the audio on your website.

  • By clicking on web → readers will be able to play, pause, fast-forward, rewind, change speed, and jump around the audio track.

💡 Pro Tip: Use the Visibility option in the editor to set your audio embed to only be available to select subscribers, like those who are paying or those who have exceeded a certain referral threshold.
