Hi 

 

I am new to 365, I have followed the instruction to sharing a SharePoint page, I have come to setting up a group but then get a message stating 'This group does not allow addition of guests due to company policy'

 

Is this something I can change.

 

Also if I add a new user, will I have to pay for them as part of my month subscription?

I'm seeing the same thing - must be a bug as I'm able to add guests to the same group using desktop Outlook.
Adding a user who is not part of your tenant as a guest does not add them to your subscription count.
You have to ask your Microsoft 365 administrator to change the policies to allow guests in 365 groups and access to SharePoint.
