locked Re: Pricing Changes #update


 

Drew,

Owning a group is like running a franchise (of Groups.io), except the
owner can't make any money;
Why not?

If I understand the existing donation mechanism, the proceeds of each member's donation are deposited into the group's Stripe account. What the group owners do with the money is unrestricted - paying the plan fee for the Premium (or Enterprise) group is only the most obvious expense to be covered.

... they probably lose money, or at least time and effort in managing
the group, whatever personal satisfaction they may receive for their
efforts. Certainly, the effort to come up with funds to pay for the
group would not be part of that personal satisfaction.
I'll agree with all of that.
