How To Transfer Feed From One Feedburner Account To Other Without Loss Of Subscribers

Its been some time feedburner added the feed transfer feature which allows you to transfer a feed from one feedburner account to another simply by transferring the ownership. You might need to transfer feed from your account just in cases when you are selling your website or transferring to another account for some other reason, before you transfer any feed you should know.

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.
