Actually, I guess it would still be a problem, but only at first.R.G. gave this 1 vote ·
If meetup would move forward with the 2nd most popular idea.... this wouldn't be a problem. (You can go back to the main Ideas and Suggestions page and click 'Top' to see what I'm talking about.)

Not something planned to get worked on.
Very good suggestion! They did away with the 'maybe' and maybe they should do way with the 'no'.... you know?! I don't know, maybe there is no way to stop ugly people from saying to no to things when they know it will bring them attention.

SHOCKED!!!! While searching for a better solution, I found that there are thousands of disappointed meetup organizers and meetup doesn't even seem to care!
Here is an interesting thread about the competition right on meetup itself and it's from way back in Jan 2011! ! http://www.meetup.com/boards/thread/10366196/30/
Here's another one!!!! It's called www.bigtent.com
Process Instant Online Payments
Cut down on check deposits and paper trails by allowing members to pay online via credit card or PayPal. Members can still send in checks, but when paying online means instant group access, chances are they won't.
Track All Dues Payments in One Place
Use BigTent to collect membership dues via credit card or PayPal, then keep track of everything in a single, sortable online ledger. Best of all, it's updated instantly so you always know you're dealing with the most recent information.
Speed Up Membership Renewals
Spend more time enjoying the core purpose of your group, and less dealing with nitty gritty admin duties. With BigTent, you can set up renewal email reminders, or simply configure your group settings for automatic renewals.
I just did a quick google search, but does anyone know of any other meetup like sites besides Group Spaces that gives organisers freedom to charge a membership fee? It would be nice to weigh all options before jumping ship.
Group Spaces looks awesome... thanks Gina! I really don't want to start over again, but I'm going to have to if they don't fix this ASAP!
Group Spaces: "Collect money for your group online using Paypal or Google Checkout. You can easily sell event tickets, collect member dues or host an online store."
