How Do I Set Up Plans and Charge on Mighty Networks?

Our Plans feature lets you customize the (1) access to your Mighty Network, (2) access to Spaces within your Mighty Network, or (3) a combination of access to Spaces, and/or your Mighty Network in a Bundle Plan.

Plans can be either External or Internal.

  • External Plans are targeted to an audience of prospective members and include Network access. External plans appear on your landing page.
  • Internal Plans are available for existing members in your Network. You can also use the Plan landing page share link to market your Internal Plans to prospective members. To learn more, check out this article

Once set up, your members will have the option to purchase your Plans on the web and/or the iOS app. This article will show you an overview of how your members purchase a Visible or Hidden Plan across all three platforms. This article tells you how to get a Share Link for a Visible or Hidden Plan into the hands of the right people.

Create Your First Plan

To get started with Plans, go to Network Settings > Plans and Payments > Plans to create your first Plan. If you already have at least one Plan created then use the + button in the upper right corner to create a new Plan.

From there, the first thing you'll be prompted to do is choose what’s included in the new Plan you're creating:

  • Network Access: This option will allow you to market and sell access to your overall Mighty Network plus Spaces to people who are prospective members. If you include Network access, you’re creating an External Plan.

  • Spaces: This option lets you create Plans that enable access to your Spaces within your Network. If you’ve excluded the Network access then enabling access to these Spaces, creates an Internal Plan.

  • Individual Plans: If you’ve chosen to include Network access or access to a single Space in your Plan.

  • Bundle: This grants someone access to more than one area of your Mighty Network with a single purchase. You can include access to multiple Spaces:

    • An External Bundle Plan includes Network membership (access to your overall Mighty Network for a non-member) bundled together with access to one or more Spaces within your Mighty Network.

  • An Internal Bundle Plan grants access to two or more Spaces within your Mighty Network that you want to sell to your members.

Once you've determined who you want to target and what you want to sell, you'll be prompted to create your Plan and customize each element, from how much you want to charge to how you describe the Plan to a prospective buyer.

Benefits List

This list will highlight the benefits your members will receive when they purchase this Plan. We recommend adding at least three!

Next, you will set up gates. This is where you will decide if you will take payments or create a token-gated Plan. 

When setting up a Paid Plan on web or mobile, you will see the option to add Screening Questions and Approval from you as the Host. 

You can toggle Screening Questions and Approvals independently, which means you can create a number of combinations:

  • Screening Questions only: The member would answer the questions and be allowed to purchase.
  • Approval only: The member would need approval in order to be allowed to purchase.
  • Screening Questions and Approval: The member would need to answer the questions and be approved in order to be allowed to purchase.

You can create up to five custom questions that potential members can answer before they are allowed to purchase. 

For more information on Screening Questions and Approvals, check out this article.


Next, you will configure your payments gate.

You can also gate access to your Mighty Network or Spaces by validating ownership of a specified token (along with the amount) through a connected crypto wallet. For more information on how to set up Token-Gated Plans, check out this article.

Pricing Type

There are three different types of pricing Plans you can set up:

  • One-Time Payment: A member will pay only once to gain access to what’s included in this Plan. They'll continue to get access as long as they have an active membership in your Mighty Network. The minimum amount you must charge is $0.50.

  • Subscription: You have the option to charge members a monthly subscription and an annual subscription, or select between a monthly and annual subscription. Members retain access to what’s included in this Plan as long as they continue paying for the subscription. When you offer both a monthly and annual subscription, we recommend giving members a small discount for choosing the annual option, and the savings will be clearly shown.

  • Free: A member will not be charged when they are on a free Plan, and they will be able to access the experiences this Plan grants access to as long as they remain on this Plan. They will not be prompted to enter a credit card or provide payment details.

Connect Stripe

To make sure you get paid, we process all payments through Stripe, a secure third-party payment processor. You'll need to create a Stripe account for each Mighty Network you set up. Here's more information about how to connect Stripe to your Mighty Network.


Select the platforms where this plan will be available.

You have the option to make your plan available on:

  • Web, Android, and iOS

  • Web and Android

  • iOS


  • If your Plan is set to free, you must select Web and iOS.

  • If a Space is paid and does not have an iOS plan, the Space will not be visible in the iOS App.

On Web

When you opt for your Plan to be available on web, you have the flexibility to charge up to $10,000 USD.

If you want to charge over $10,000 on Web, or over $999 on iOS, you can use an external payment system or click the 'Need Help?' button at the bottom right corner of your Mighty Networks account to reach our Customer Advocacy Team.

If you’ve chosen to sell plans in multiple currencies you’ll need to add a price for each currency available in your network.

On iOS

When setting your price, you'll choose from a list of pre-set prices that end in $0.99 and max out at $999.

For your plan to be sold as an iOS in-app purchase within the Mighty Networks iOS app, Apple has additional fees associated with all purchases, and you may want to take this into consideration when you price your iOS plan. Apple also has a separate review process. Once your plan is approved by Apple, you will receive an email notification. Though Apple approval timelines vary widely, your plans will be available on web immediately!

For purchases made through the Mighty Networks iOS app, all payments are processed using Apple In-App Purchases and these are managed via the App Store. When a member buys through iOS, Apple’s standard policy requires that they take a 15% transaction fee per each transaction. Mighty Networks does not charge a transaction fee for any iOS purchases. Also keep in mind that when you create a new plan and set up pricing for that plan, you always have the option to increase the price only on iOS, as a way to offset Apple's required fees.

Important Note: Apple will automatically convert the currency depending on the user's location. 

On Android

When you choose to sell paid plans on the web, the Android app will display a message indicating that plans are available and can be purchased on the mobile browser or desktop web.

What members will see in the Android app:


We have decided to not use Google Play Store's purchase system for the following reasons:

  1. Google will take 30% of your transactions.

  2. Google Play Store price points are very restrictive. For example, you cannot charge more than $400 USD vs. Apple's $999.99 USD upper limit.

Free Trial

You also have the option to add a free trial (more details here).



Choose a Tax Category

This determines which type of taxes your members will be charged. Learn more about each option here. For Hosts in the EU, check out this article for further information about taxes.



Payouts, Taxes, and Currency

Mighty Networks handles all payouts from Apple and will transfer money to you monthly. Apple also handles all taxes and applicable currency conversions. To learn more, you can check out this article.


Once you've filled out the steps above, you'll see a preview of how your new Plan will look to your members.



Finally, you’ll click the Create Plan button.


As soon as you create your new Plan, it will immediately be approved to sell on the Web. You can choose to keep this plan Hidden and only invite members to purchase via a Share Link on the Web, or you can make it Visible so that anyone can purchase.

For your plan to be sold as an iOS in-app purchase within the Mighty Networks iOS app, Apple has a separate review process. Once your plan is approved by Apple, you will receive an email notification. While Apple approval timelines vary widely, you’ll be able to start selling on web.
