With the increase in traffic, expenditure to maintain & improve the quality of our services that ultimately benefit submitters; we regret that we are no longer able to provide free reviews / approvals but have come up with a Special Advantage Listing for those who have already submitted the site to us and are waiting for a review.
Existing Submitters receive a whopping price benefit with $7 for lifetime submissions. This is ‘not-to-miss’ offer that guarantees review from us in 48 hours or less. Existing submitters also enjoy a price advantage over new submitters which will be charged at $11 for year and $ 99 for lifetime. As an existing submitter, you save $92 along with a guarantee of Life-Long Listing !
