Frequently Asked Questions
Learn about becoming a member on Arrow.
What is Arrow?

Arrow is a crowdsourced matchmaking platform that is a great way to find love. Members post a bounty and then receive Prospect recommendations from Matchmakers.

Who should use Arrow?

Arrow is designed for Members (people looking for a serious relationship who can post a bounty of at least $5,000) and for Matchmakers (people who want to set up their friends and get paid if it works out!).

Is Arrow a dating app?

No. We’re more similar to a matchmaking service. Dating apps are great, and we encourage single people to use them, but “swipe fatigue” is real and we believe that Arrow is a great option for many people.

How is Arrow different from a traditional matchmaking service?

With traditional matchmaking, clients pay a small fortune up-front (typically $10,000 at the very least, often much more) and then only get access to one or several matchmakers with a very limited pool of potential matches. With Arrow, Members owe nothing until they find what they’re looking for, and they get access to not one Matchmaker but rather a crowdsourced network of many matchmakers.

How exactly does Arrow work, if I’m a Member?

Fill out the Member application, including the bounty that you’ll pay for reaching your milestone (becoming engaged or being in a two-year committed relationship, whichever comes first). Once you're accepted from the waitlist, receive Prospect proposals from Matchmakers, go on fun dates if both parties are up for it, and see what happens!

Could you tell me more about these bounties?

Members post a bounty or referral bonus to encourage Matchmakers to send them Prospects. Arrow accepts any bounty of at least $5,000. In the event of success (becoming engaged or being in a two-year committed relationship, whichever comes first), the Member pays the full bounty. Arrow keeps 25% of the full bounty amount, and the remainder (minus money transfer fees) goes to the Matchmaker.

How does Arrow make sure that Members will actually pay their bounties?

Contractually, via social pressure, and via karma. A Member who reaches their bounty and doesn’t pay is essentially stealing money from their new significant other’s good friend. And karma matters too–at Arrow, we trust people and think that most people will do the right thing.

I’m a Member–what’s a good bounty size for me to set?

Arrow allows any bounty of $5,000 or more. All else equal, larger bounties are likely to attract more interest from Matchmakers.

Could you give me a numerical example of how the bounty works?

Sure. Let’s say a Member posts a bounty of $10,000. If the Member reaches their milestone (getting engaged or having a two-year committed relationship via an Arrow introduction, whichever comes first), the Member will send Arrow the full amount of $10,000. Arrow keeps 25% (so $10,000 * 0.25 = $2,500). Arrow pays the remainder, minus money transfer fees, to the Matchmaker. Assuming money transfer fees of 2%, the Matchmaker would receive $10,000 * (1-0.25) * (1-0.02) = $7,350. Arrow reserves the right to change these percentages at any time, with or without notice, though introductions that have already happened will be governed by the previous percentages.

I’m a Member–can I change my bounty amount?

Members can always increase their bounty amount–simply log into your Member dashboard and enter the new amount. Members are typically not permitted to decrease their bounty amount, but we’ll consider occasional exceptions to this policy (just email us to ask).

Can I apply to be both a Member and a Matchmaker?

Absolutely!

I'm still on the waitlist--How can I get accepted more quickly?

Refer your friends! You'll see a referral link on your waitlist dashboard when you log in. Referring more people will increase your chances of being admitted quickly!
