When you turn on member dues, you can create a Stripe account. Stripe is Meetup’s integrated payment system for organizers in the United States. If you’re located outside of the U.S., set up a PayPal account.
Linking your Stripe account
If you’re the organizer of more than one Meetup group, you’ll need to complete these steps for each group that you organize.
Desktop / Mobile web
- Navigate to your group’s Money page.
- Select Go to Stripe. You will be redirected to Stripe’s site.
- Log into Stripe using your Meetup email address and password, then click Log in. (Do not click “Sign up.”)
- Follow the steps to enter your personal and bank account information. When you click Finish, you will be returned to your group’s homepage.
There is a 7 day waiting period from the time of first charge to the first payout. Learn more from Stripe about payout schedules.
Stripe follows industry standard data security protocols to protect your information. We have chosen Stripe as our payment partner because they value your privacy and security.
A transaction fee of 7.5% + $0.50 is taken from the total amount an organizer charges.
