How do people find me?

Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hong Kong, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Singapore, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom, United States

What happens if I Go Offline with open sessions?

Your current sessions will remain active until ended by you or whoever you're chatting with.

Users won't be able to start new sessions with you though.


Is there a minimum charge?

$1

How do pro rates work?

Min Charge + (Minutes * Pro Rate)

So a 10 min chat, with a pro whose rate is $0.30/min would be: 1 + (0.3*10) = $4.

What is the processing fee?

There is a 15% platform fee, and a 3% payment processing fee. This combined fee is deducted from the session total before being transferred to the pro.
