As an organizer, you can charge members a fee to attend an event. Collecting event fees can offset costs of running a group like renting a venue, paying a speaker, or your organizer subscription.
Before you set an event fee, you must set up a PayPal account.
Setting an event fee using PayPal
After setting up PayPal, you can set an optional fee when you create your next event.
Desktop / Mobile web
- When you schedule an event, scroll down to the Optional Settings section and toggle Event fee.

PayPal transaction fees
A small transaction fee is taken from the total amount an organizer charges per ticket. Please check with PayPal to determine the exact fees for your region, then adjust your event fee accordingly.
