Where Do My Membership Fees Go?

One common misperception about HotRussianBrides.com is that the membership fees a gentleman pays goes straight into our founder's bank account. Though we are a business and must earn a profit to remain viable, HotRussianBrides must cover a wide range of operating expenses to provide the level of service our members have come to expect.

To chat or send emails, a Russian woman needs a computer, an Internet service provider, and a web cam. As the vast majority of Russians cannot afford computers, HotRussianBrides.com provides all of the equipment a lady needs to chat with Western men and we pay all of the necessary costs. Most internet providers in Russia do not offer unlimited service, so we must pay by the minute. In addition, our popular video chat feature creates extra traffic and we must pay separate fees for the increased usage. It’s also important to remember that we employ a full-time staff of translators who are compensated for their time. Needless to say, this isn’t cheap. 

In addition, HotRussianBrides.com also employs a full-time staff of customer service professionals in the United States. These professionals are available seven days a week to answer questions and address member concerns. Without them, many gentlemen would be lost. IT professionals, graphic designers, administrative support staff, and marketing specialists, among others, are also critical to the success of HotRussianBrides. 

Operating a Russian dating site isn’t cheap and for this reason HotRussianBrides must charge members a fair price for the services we provide. Earning a profit is important to HotRussianBrides, as it is to any business. However, contrary to popular belief, the membership fees HotRussianBrides.com collects from its members is not pure profit.
