Podcast hosts and app makers: Let's make it easier for podcasters to surface donate/pay/membership links in our UIs with a standard semantic way to denote payment URLs in HTML show notes. Does such a thing exist already in any useful HTML spec? Maybe an <a rel="something">?

Podcasters and CMS makers: Next version of Overcast looks for a link in every episode's show notes with <a rel="payment">. If present, Overcast adds a nice green "$" button on the Now Playing screen that opens up that donation/Patreon/membership URL of your choice.

Love this! Curious how Google is doing this and whether it could be applied consistently to avoid doubling the work (cc )

I'm sure there are others thinking about and building solutions here, too, so it would be great to learn more about those. Many parts to the full stack (payment, member mgmt, hosting, analytics, etc.), so I'm sure there are a lot of different valuable perspectives out there.

Yeah I'm building a member/payment platform, hence why I'm asking! Hate to have to implement this 100 different ways
