The audio platform that doesn’t  take a cut of your sales

At Hiro, your profitability is everything.

I use Hiro to keep my teams updated and ready for the latest marketing strategies. I couldn't imagine forking over a portion of each subscription.

I struggled to find a way to create my audiobook and then I discovered Hiro and it is AMAZING! Best of all, I'm not giving away a portion of my profits for each sale.

I published my audiobook on Hiro and it’s been amazing. We love it! We've seen ridiculous growth in our business since!

“The expenses are excessively over the top. Patrons who contribute $1 will have the vast majority of that support vanish into charges.”

Hiro will never take a cut of your sales

Patreon is free to start but keeps charging you more and more as your business grows. If you’re tired of sharing a cut of your hard-earned money, here are 6 reasons to choose Hiro.

Simple, predictable pricing

Hiro charges a fixed monthly fee. The money you make from your product is 100% yours. Hiro doesn't take a cut.

You name your price

Crowdfunding platforms are built for donations. Hiro let’s you monetize audio at any price you choose.

Focused on businesses

Patreon targets everyone, while Hiro is dedicated to helping expert creators monetize their content.

No need to be live 24/7

Convert your existing content into a private podcast with just a few clicks. No technical skills required.

Seamless experience

Hiro makes it easy for your audience to purchase access to your show with our instant sales page, keyword optin & more

Targeted marketing

Knowing who listened to what, gives you the power to use automations for targeted marketing and higher conversions

Predictable price for you, better experience for your tribe


Pay $0 in commissions and processing fees

The more you make, the more Patreon takes. Hiro is the Patreon alternative that doesn’t punish you for growing. It’s your creation, your genius, your hard work — it should be your money to keep.

Price your shows to match your funnels

The average donation in Patreon is $6.70. Hiro doesn’t limit your earnings potential. You’re free to choose a price for each podcast you create, with special focus on membership tiers, value ladders and repeat buyers.

Choose how listeners consume your content

Drip and expire episodes to keep fans engaged. Block specific users from accessing your content, if you choose to. You’re in control of your own product.

Protect private content from being shared everywhere

Keep your audio products safe from digital downloads and link sharing. Be confident knowing that your content is protected by a company who cares about the work entrepreneurs and content creators do.

Go live or repurpose existing content

Donations suffer if you don’t spend time with fans live, on Patreon. Hiro converts your existing content into podcasts and drips episodes to keep listeners engaged without being forced to go live.

Integrate with +3000 apps via Zapier

You don’t just run a podcast, you manage a business. Hiro connects with all the tools you already love and use to help you run your business smoothly.
