Sale instructions

If you’d like to buy the Sale episodes of The History of Byzantium then this is what you need to do.

1) Register with the site here. Just input your email address and click “Submit.”

2) You will receive an email from with your password. Check your spam folder if you can’t see it. Click on the link to login or you can click here.

3) Sign in using your email and the password. Then click on Buy Episodes on the right hand menu.

4) You can now choose which episodes you’d like. If you want the RSS feed then just choose that and don’t add any other episodes as they are all included in the feed. Click on “Add to Basket” when you’re done.

5) You can now choose to add a donation. The early episodes are $5 and later ones are $7. A year-long subscription to the feed is $42 (since June 2016). You can simply enter the amount that each item costs if you like. Or you can add a donation by inputting a larger amount. Don’t use decimal points. Just put 7 or 42 or whatever rather than 7.00 or 42.00. Click “Checkout” when you’re done.

6) This is your chance to check the order is correct. If it is click “Buy Now.” If it isn’t click “Back” and correct it.

7) You are now taken to the Paypal screen. Either use your Paypal account to pay or click on the option to pay with debit or credit card (it’s on the right hand side under the Paypal account login).

8) Once you have paid you will receive an email confirming your purchase and information about your episodes or RSS feed. You can always login here and click on “Your Purchases” (top left) and stream or download your episodes. Your RSS feeds will also be there.

Please be patient with the sale episodes. They are on a slower server than the free episodes. You may have to download them in order to listen to them when the server is busy. Email me with any problems: thehistoryofbyzantium at (obviously replace at with the sign).

    It worked! If you listened to ep. 1-27 to these on an iphone using the “podcasts” app (using iOS9.2.1) & you don’t want to change for the purchased ep. 28, do all the steps above, then…

    …on your iphone, open the rss feed emailed to you in your “safari” browser

    … (after asking you to confirm various confusing questions,) your phone opens the rss feed with the purchased episode(s) in your “podcasts” app under a new podcast title “The history of Byzantium – special purchased episodes”
    It ended up being really easy: Thanks Robin!
    Perhaps this feedback will assist someone else
