Microsoft teams invited users

I am evaluating office 365 and in particular teams. I see there is an option in teams for inviting guests and this works really well. My question is if guests are free then why would I bother paying for a license for users to access teams. I get that a full licensed user will obviously get much more features but I’m wondering what the draw back is to invited users, thanks

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Cause Guests are users external to your company, as in users from other tenants or users with consumer email addresses. They cannot access half the features in Teams, and almost none of the collaboration features across Office 365.

If someone made an error and invited the wrong email this could lead to to a security issue, any suggestions for safeguarding?  I assume it's possible to only allow authorised domains?

Yes, you can limit Guest users to specific domains only, or disable invitations altogether.
