Meetup doesn't charge individuals to create an account, to join a Meetup Group, or go to meetings.
Instead, every Meetup Group is responsible for paying a fee billed to the Group's Organizer.
Most Organizers treat this fee like a restaurant tab, sharing it with the group members by setting membership dues and/or charging event fees at individual Meetups.
There are 3 price plans:
$12 a month for 6 months (a single $72 charge)
$15 a month for 3 months (a single $45 charge)
$19 per month
Organizers can run up to 3 Meetup Groups at a time under any of the above plans.
If you're unhappy for any reason, you can request a full refund within 30 days of your initial payment.
For more information about the refund policy, please visit Section 3.5 of our Terms of Service.
