    I logged in, did a search, clicked on an ad, informed I had to get the upgrade. Clicked the back button. Got logged out. Logged back in, got this message:

    LOGIN FAILED! Sorry, but our system indicates that you are currently logged-in to another session with IP Address: ********** (Please wait 20 mins to re-logged in or until that user session logs out)

    I think it has a few bugs.

    This is a standard security feature that you will see on many member login sites. They are designed to prevent members from sharing their login details. Unable to duplicate the log out after clicking the back button. Shall monitor.

    Your success

    If it helps any it looks like it could work,
    but I'm with the general consensus.

    It's not too bad, it does need tweaking, but I might give it a chance.
    Except for that backhanded little 'ooops now you gotta pay' thing,
    I've been had in that way so many times I never even got that far
    because it just doesn't work anymore, but one can see even with
    folks less experienced with the tactic it hardly warms the heart.

    Other than that the idea isn't bad, overall I like the looks and feel of the site, too,
    at least in terms of design, what I see in a site is the person behind it,
    and I don't think it's bad, I think overall the idea is good as is the intent.

    Now that 'Your Success' thing raises my blood temperature, but at least
    that's the only thing I saw where you act like you'd be doing me a favor :p
    It's not that it wouldn't help, but I think the help in this case would be mutual?

    Of course by the time it's all said and done there might not be any profit in it, too...
    See that's the reason I gave up on this Web stuff, I never saw the profit, now I still
    think there has to be an angle and in that sense I wish you the best of luck.

    I am thinking, just thinking, maybe a per completed transaction fee?
    That is, ads are free, so is reading, but certain key information such as address and
    telephone number is only available for a few dollars, so then it wouldn't cost much
    but you'd get paid per swap?
    Every time a customer changes hands you get paid, but not for the time we spend there.
    Just an idea...
    Then it would be kind of like a dating site lol

    Anyhow, just my .02

    Thanks for your .02 we appreciate feed back and views so that we can adapt the site accordingly. The idea of a pay per trade would need allot more customization of the database and management. In its present form as you say its like a dating site in the form that users post their offerings and what they are looking for and then if you’d like to make contact the paid upgraded membership comes into place.

    As with all business models there is always a cost involved to cover the running costs of the site and development.
    There is no intent to cover this up all the FAQS can be answered here http://www.tradeyouraccounts.com/faqs.aspx We have a vision to make a central database that’s created from members ads that can be a resource for all in various service industries. To cover the costs of running the business a membership fee seemed the best way eventually as it becomes more established and revenue can come from other means we hope to offer free membership to all service industries

    We look forward to being an expanding resource for all service industry’s to use

    I did say this already on page one. But I think the point here is that we both agree that this makes more sense. How am I to know that anybody will ever post anything that I will have interest in? Do I pay until it works out? Nobody from my state even resides there, and I live in a huge state. I took my ads off the second I realized this was a backhanded payoff. Buy like I said, will it work? Who knows, thats your deal.

    Anyway, your success.

    It worked out sweet for me I relocated within So Cal sold my accounts on there and managed to find some. I know of a Pool guy that sold on there as well. I can see its not going to work for every one at the moment as its just getting going but hey it did for me and it didn’t cost me a dime. :dancing:
