What is is a super convenient website tool, gifted to us back in 2005. What it does is allow strangers to come together to do stuff. If you can think of the thing, and you need people for the thing, you can guarantee that you can find the people on These things range from sports, book clubs, hiking groups, language learning - everything!

So where does Collctiv fall in? And why are our users concerned about fees on To explain that, we must reacquaint you with the concept of the ‘organizer.’
Who are the ‘organizers?’ To put it quaintly, organizers are that small group of society that specialize in getting things done, but in doing so are perpetually taken advantage of for their organizational prowess. As a company that specializes in managing group fees and helping organizers, the Collctiv + Meetup combination appears to be a match made in heaven…

Here are some of the burning questions that surround payments on Meetup, and how Collctiv are striving to calm those worries. 

Do you pay for Meetup?

Yes, you do. It’s a bit of a strange system, though, so bear with me. Meetup charges a monthly fee for organizers. That payment gives the organizer the pleasure of using the platform. After that, however; it’s up to the group to decide how that fee is going to be collected amongst each other. Split between the group? Or just letting the organizer pay the lot? That’s before taking into consideration specific fees for whatever the thing is in the first place. Venue hire, equipment etc… it all adds up!
