The first step is to register on our site. This is free both for men and women.
Only registered members can contact other members of our site.
After registration you will get a mailbox on our server where you can check your mail, keep track of mail sent, members contacted, credits purchased and spent.
We also recommend you to upload your pictures to your profile, as profiles without pictures get virtually no responses.
When registered you can contact other members of our site:
1. Send them a free message.
Those members with Internet access will receive your message instantly. Some of our female members do not have Internet access and in this case we will forward your message to our representative in her city who will deliver it to her in person, by phone, or by domestic mail. Her response will be delivered in the same way right into your mail box on our website. You will receive email notification of each message received.
If you receive a response, to open it you need to purchase credits ($1-$2 per credit depending on the quantity of credits you purchase). Number of credits needed to open a letter varies. You can pay with a credit card, check, wire, and more.
2. Send them a free "smile".
A smile is a quick "Hi" message with a link back to your profile which indicates to a member your interest in him or her.
3. Place a live interpreted phone call directly to her via our bi-lingual operator (1.8 credits per minute)
Call toll-free 1.866.974.6453 (or outside of the US call +1 (312) 252-0005 ) between 6AM and 3PM CST, and tell the operator your login to our site, and the name or reference number of the member you want to talk to. If that member has her phone number on file for this connection, the operator will dial her, and if she is home the operator will stay on the line and interpret your conversation as you speak. If she is not home, but someone of her family answers the phone, the interpreter will arrange for the follow up call.
What is the next step
So, you have contacted some women, and some of them wrote you back, and they seem to be insterested. What do you do next?
There 2 options.
1. Let us take care of everything. Continue communicating with her until you reach the point where you both are serious about meeting in person. Then call us and we will organize your trip to CIS to meet her and possibly other women, or organize your meeting in a different country. Then, if you want to proceed, we will help you with all the paperwork needed to bring her to your country. Let our 10 years of experience in these matters work for you.
2. You can take it from here. Of course, you can get the woman's direct contact information and do everything yourself. There are 2 ways to obtain the contact information. The first and most popular one is to open at least 15 paid letters from the woman. This way is preferable because 15 letters are just enough to get to know the woman and see if she is truly interested in you. After that you will need to go through the IMBRA clearance (only if you are a US citizen, and only once, regardless of how many women's info you want). The form and requisite instructions can be downloaded here. Then you will get her full contact information (processing your request for a lady's contact details can take up to 2-3 days). By going through the IMBRA clearance you show that you comply with the law, and that there is substantial communication to show her intent.
If you don't want to wait until you have opened 15 paid letters, you may use our expedited service. This means paying an administrative fee of $50 (for each woman's info). This fee is not to be confused with the IMBRA fee, which is $40 and is a separate matter. The $50 administrative fee will cover our expenses: we will contact the woman you have chosen and try to obtain her permission/IMBRA release (for US citizens). If she does not give us her permission, we cannot give you her direct contact information, and the administrative fee is non-refundable. Expedited service works quickly, but we would not recommend it. 15 letters really let you know the girl better. No letters or next to no letters do not give you the full picture - you will not be sure of her intentions and whether she wants to communicate with you directly outside of the service. You cannot apply for the expedited service if you haven't opened at least one paid letter from the woman whose contact details you wish to obtain.
We have a unique floating price structure which allows us to offer you such low prices as 50 cents per one letter exchange (to send one letter and receive one response) without ever cutting corners on quality of the service. Similar service from our competition is as high as $8. And our services to women are traditionally free of charge.
Here is how it works. First you purchase credits at the following prices:
100 credits or more: $1 per credit
55-99 credits: $1.09 per credit
10-54 credits: $2 per credit
We accept all major credit cards, checks, wires, and more.
Secondly, the price (in credits) for opening a letter from each member also varies, and here is why. While the vast majority of our male members have personal email addresses and easy access to the Internet, this is not always the case with our female members. Delivering messages to some of them who do not have Internet access, involves calling them and asking to come to a local facility to read their mail and respond to those they are interested in. There is a translator available at each local facility to help read the message and write a response if a woman does not speak English. If the lady cannot come to the local facility soon, an interpreter would read the message to her over the phone and/or it will be printed and mailed to her by domestic mail. This is an expensive process. However in case of women who do have Internet access and a personal email which they regularly check, delivering a message to them is as easy as forwarding it, and is fully automated. So the bottom line for delivering your correspondence is different in each case. While our competitors will charge you the full price anyway and just pocket the difference, we are passing the savings on to you. The majority of the women do have email addresses, and you can correspond with them at low prices (starting at 0.5 credits per letter). You can use the advanced search to filter female profiles by price.
But that's not all. The problem with all dating sites is that a small number of women who are extremely popular get the majority of letters from men. That's bad for both the majority of women who do not get any letters as well as for guys whos letters go unanswered. The dating sites do not really care about that as long as they can put pretty faces of their most popular girls on the first page and sell subscriptions or addresses. They do not advertize the fact that these girls have received hundreds of letters from other men. To cure this inherent problem we are introducing a floating price for correspondence with each woman based on the number of members she is actively corresponding with. Our system monitors how many letters she had already received The more letters she receives, the greater is the price in credits to open a letter from her. The price however stays constant for those men already corresponding with her, but increases for new contact attempts, thus naturally limiting the number of guys writing to her. At a certain point, when too many letters go unanswered and price increase is no longer practical, her profile will be dropped from search results (allowing existing correspondence to continue anyway). If a member is not answering any letters his or her profile will be suspended and later removed for inactivity.
The price in credits you actually pay for opening a letter from a given female member will be based on the above two factors and varies from 0.5 credit to 20 credits
Where to get more information about a lady
All the information we have about our ladies is available on their personal pages. We publish everything we have, except for their contact information. If her personal page says "Unknown", or "Information not supplied" on certain fields, for example: "Weight: Unknown", or "Education: Information not supplied" , that means that the lady chose not to answer that question. The best way to find out more about the lady is to write to her yourself.
Is this lady available ?
If her personal page is showing on our web site - yes, she is available. We don't want to waste your time or ours, so we remove all profiles that become unavailable, or are inactive. The inactivity is determined by a member not visiting our site, not checking his or her mail, not answering letters or "smiles" in his or her mail box. Before we remove a profile we contact the member by email to give them a warning before we remove her/his profile.
What does "Will tell you later" mean ?
Some of the bio data fields on women's personal pages are answered "Will tell you later". For example "Hobbies : Will tell you later..". That is what a lady chose to answer to this specific question. It is one of the answer options that we offer in our questionnaire that the ladies fill out. It means that she does not want to publish this information on the Web, however does not mind discussing it in correspondence with you.
Do you have any success stories that I can read?
You can read success stories and other positive feedback from clients on our Testimonials page.
Are credit card transactions secure?
In one word - yes, they are. We did not have a single case of credit card theft or any other customer data compromised since we started in 1997.
If you desire a more thorough and technical explanation, well here it is. The credit card transactions on our site are as secure as they can be on the Internet. We process credit cards via our own secure server with SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) encryption as most merchants on the Intenet do. Using SSL browser encryption provided by Netscape Navigator and Internet Explorer, your credit card information is kept private while being transferred over the Internet. Not only is your credit card information transmitted securely, but all of the information about the order (with our order form) is transmitted in secure mode to insure privacy. Your credit card is encrypted until it is transmitted via a dedicated line to your processing bank. Only you, us, and the processing bank have access to unencrypted credit card information.
Regardless whether you shop on Yahoo, eBay, Amazon, or accessing your credit card statement online - you get absolutely the same protocol - SSL encryption. SSL is probably the most common and reliable encryption on the Web. Is it absolutely unbreakable? No. Given necessary tools and resources, a technically advanced hacker can break it, the same way the credit card numbers can be stolen in bulk from department store and bank databases. If you want to be 100% secure, you would have to refrain from ANY credit card purchases over the Internet, telephone or in-store, disconnect your computer from the network and never write another check. However, it is not worth the effort, because it is almost impossible to buy something worth more than a hundred dollars or so, having only credit card information, but not the card itself, on hand. In any case, with the majority of credit cards, you are not liable for the fraudulent use of your card information or your maximum liability is $50.
To add a little more protection to that, we NEVER keep your credit card information on the server. Plus, per Visa and Mastercard regulations we do not keep the CVV data (the three or four digit security code on the back of your card) anywhere at all. Even in an unlikely event of your credit card number being stolen, it can't be used pretty much anywhere without that code.
We will have your credit card information, encrypted, only on our internal computers, and only for the purpose of assisting you if you have problems processing your order on-line, or to issue any refunds. We never charge your card without your authorization. No "recurring" charges, no membership fees. We only charge your card with your expressed authorization. Guaranteed.
