"In order to search a groom for my sister, I signed up with one major Indian Matrimonial service provider shaadi.com. Since I did not have the option to pay per month, I had to sign up for three months. I paid approximately 100 US Dollars. The number of prospects whose contact I could view was limited. There were several other limitations such as who I could message, call or interact with. The biggest problem was that most users did not know that their profile existed in the matrimonial website. They had either created their profile and forgot about it or someone had created profile for them but didn't care to revisit the website. When I would call them, they often would say that they didn't know who created the profile. After getting barely countable responses from some real members, I finally went to meet three candidates; all turned out to be either physically or mentally challenged. I wish the website had some serious quality members. I wasted my time, money; what I got was frustration." Statement of a major Indian Matrimonial website shaadi.com user
A simple Google search displays several matrimonial websites - all offering nearly similar platform and expensive fees. Although they offer free sign ups for everyone, it merely increases the number of users, most of them, not serious. This created frustration for serious members like you.
Maangu does not want any junk members. As such, we implemented a minimal fee to discourage those junks from entering into Maangu.
Although we implemented a fee for all members, it is much lower than the fees charged by any matrimonial websites in the world. For a comparison of fees, please see our Pricing Page.
We believe it is unfair for one member to pay fee while other doesn't. Not only you are looking for someone special, someone is looking for you as well. Keeping that in mind, Maangu charges very minimal affordable fees from everyone.
