Now that you know a bit about what Meetup is and how it works, you’re probably wondering how much it’s going to cost you. Luckily, we can tell you exactly how Meetup makes its money, how much it will potentially cost you, and how you can utilize Meetup without breaking the bank. The very first question you’re probably asking is “is Meetup free?”
Meetup is free to sign up for and use; there are no fees associated with using the website. Meetup charges group organizers $14.99/month for up to 50 members and 3 organizers, or $19.99/month with no restrictions. It is up to the discretion of the organizer whether members pay additional fees to belong to the group.
Meetup may cost users various amounts of money, as the purpose of each group is specific and varied. In general, group organizers do not charge more than what is required to keep the group running. However, a group that meets for hiking would pay substantially less than a group that meets to try new 5-star restaurants.
That’s how Meetup pricing and costs work. If you’re interested in joining Meetup, check out our article on how to sign up for Meetup. If you’re already a member, become a Meetup pro with our tutorial on how to use Meetup.
