While there are some limitations and edge cases that you may need to consider (and you can review those here in our payments FAQ), we hope this guide will give you more clarity about what’s possible when you decide to start earning revenue directly from your Mighty Network.

Here are some questions to start you out:

Do you want to charge for Network membership but not for Spaces inside of your Mighty Network?

If yes, then you want to build a Paid Mighty Network.

You will set up an External Individual Plan 

  • To set up a new Plan, go to Network Settings > Plans and Payments > Plans and click the “+” icon
  • For this option, you will want to be sure that the toggle is on or “Included”.
  • After creating the Plan, anyone who visits your Mighty Network’s landing page directly or via an invitation will see an option to purchase membership.
