Though it's always free to set up a Meetup account as a member, Meetup charges Organizer Dues to start and lead Meetup groups as an organizer. To help cover these dues, organizers have the options to collect Contributions from members who want to help chip in, set Membership Dues and/or charge Ticket prices for individual Meetups.
We’ve always done everything we can to keep Organizer Dues fair and affordable for organizers everywhere. Take a look at our current pricing plans for more details and specifics.
If you've paid Organizer Dues and change your mind about running a Meetup, 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.
