What is the cost difference between OpenSports and MeetUp?

Looking for an amazing, sports specific alternative to Meetup?

Update October 2019: The article below, originally published in May 2018, shows the differences in transaction fees between Meetup, Eventbrite, and OpenSports. Meetup also charges organizers a membership fee to create groups, and their fee structure is likely changing soon whereby they will be imposing a $2 fee for users to RSVP for events.

The table below shows a simple comparison of what you, as an organizer, will make from every $5, $10, and $25 ticket you sell through these three apps.

Sample Fee Breakdowns (In USD)

  • Meetup: Their transaction fee is 8% + $0.50.
  • Eventbrite: Although they advertise that there is a service fee of 1–3% +$0.99 per paid ticket, the fine print states that a payment processing of an additional 3% per ticket will apply.
  • OpenSports: Only a small transaction fee (5% + $0.30) is taken from the total amount a game organizer charges per ticket.

Your payout from collecting payment through OpenSports always makes you more money.
