How to Upgrade to the New Fusebox

Ready to make the jump from the Fusebox Player Classic plugin? Well, you're in luck! We're here to help make the transition as simple as possible! Below you will find instructions for how to start using the latest version of Fusebox.

Upgrading from a Monthly or Annual Plan

When you're ready to upgrade, simply email help@fusebox.fm with your podcast's RSS feed—we'll take care of the rest!

If you'd like to know the fine details about how an upgrade works. Here's a rundown of what happens.

Outside of the updated design, increased compatibility, and new customizability, the new Fusebox operates on an entirely different platform from our WordPress-only plugin. When upgrading to the new Fusebox, a few actions will happen in the background:

  1. Our database will find your existing account and securely migrate your billing information to the new platform, canceling your existing (old) subscription.
  2. Using your RSS feed and your securely copied billing information, the new platform creates a new account and subscription. During this step, you'll be charged for a new subscription at the same interval you previously had on the classic plugin (either monthly or annually).

After these two steps are completed, you'll receive an email to complete your new account setup. 

To get things fully switched over, you'll want to complete the following steps.

If your website offers a backlog of episodes, and you don't feel like replacing all of the previous players, make sure to check out this article — Using the Fusebox Migration Tool for WordPress.


Upgrading from a Lifetime License

If you purchased a lifetime license key to Smart Podcast Player, your upgrade path is pretty simple!

To get started, go to this page and create a new account. 

Enter your podcast's RSS feed, and select whether you'd like a Free or Pro subscription. As the new Fusebox is an entirely new product, creating a new account will begin a Pro subscription at either $19/mo or $190yr.

It's important to remember that the license key for Lifetime License users never expires. This means you may remain on Fusebox classic plugin for as long as you'd like without any interruptions to your account. 


Free subscription

As there is no subscription to migrate, simply go to this page and create a new account. 

You will still need to provide your RSS URL to create an account.
