Transferring feeds between accounts

IMPORTANT: You cannot use the Transfer Feeds... option to transfer feeds between accounts on FeedBurner.com and Google Accounts. You can only transfer feeds between accounts on the same system, i.e., FeedBurner Account > FeedBurner Account or Google Account > Google Account. No crossing the streams!

If you want to transfer a feed between one FeedBurner account and another, follow these steps:

  1. Sign in to your account.
  2. Click the title of the feed you want to send to someone else in the My Feeds list, and then click "Transfer Feed..." You will then be prompted to enter the email address of the publisher to whom you wish to transfer this feed.
  3. Enter this email address and submit the form.

FeedBurner will contact this publisher by email and provide a link they must visit in order to sign into their own FeedBurner account and then accept the transfer. The transfer will occur immediately after they complete this process.

Feed transfer request emails are only valid for 72 hours. If the transferee doesn't accept the request within this window, you will have to issue a new request. Make sure the transferee checks their spam/junk folder for this message, as it may end up there by accident — it's a tough, unforgiving world out there, people.
