No dates on that/updates - could not find them, anyway...but at least 250 movie GALLERIES (or more out of now 646) with 8 fine/excellent quality vids in each, so....8 x 250...or about...bottom line: you get quite a lot for your money. Also in type of model - something for everybody.

Yeah it certainly is wrong and I wouldn't of joined if I'd of known it ws going to be 19.99 euros and not dollars. It should be the same no matter where you live or there abouts with fluctuating currency values. I'll keep a closer eye on this when joining sites from now on.

People have different standards for rating download speeds.
But 17 kps would be horrible for anyone with broadband.

When I had dial-up for many years, I would get 3-4 KB/s as my normal download speed, sometimes slowing to 1 KB/s.

Upgrading to DSL, I got 120-130 KB/s.
I recently upgraded my DSL to 620-630 KB/s.

But to download a full-length movie in decent quality would take over 24 hours for 17 kbs. (I don't know how long it would take exactly, because it depends on the quality, but many movies are around 700 MB or more). Video clips from porn sites can be 1 GB or more.

Anyway, people have complained about the download speeds at this site before, off and on. Sometimes the speeds are fast, sometimes they are slow. But never this slow before.

You should email the site and ask for a refund or free extension of your membership as compensation for the poor service you have gotten.
That is only reasonable. And right.

If you don't get a free extension of your membership, you should demand a refund, from your billing agent. Or credit card company. Or whoever.

17 kbs is ridiculous (unless you are on dial-up, which I assume you are not).

Edit: You aren't on dial-up, because you mention 200 kbs speed.

Maybe you have a sticky or lazy key on your keyboard. Did you copy and paste them carefully, making sure not to leave any spaces in at the end or beginning? Did you try using another browser?

Maybe someone else with an active sub can verify that things are fine.

You're welcome. :)

Just wanted to pass on the latest, which confirms that this issue, although similar, wasn't the exact same issue that messmer's membership was affected by...

----------------------------------------
"Hi Jeff,

Let me provide a quick summary of the cancel/expire issues that emerged after Karups migrated to Sentry:

- the first was directly associated with the use of the manual approval process and has been resolved for some time now.
- the second is not specific to Karups on Sentry and although the side
affects would make it appear to be related to the first, it is actually a separate issue and has also been resolved."
----------------------------------------

Once again, we apologize for the inconvenience this has caused you guys. Like I mentioned prior, we're really the only victims (for lack of a better word) when these issues with the processing company happen. We'll never let our members eat any of the cost of a mistake, mishap, etc... We'll always rectify any issue and make sure the member(s) get everything they paid for (and then some in many caes), or full reimburse them for them not getting exactly what they paid for.

Please let me know if there is anyting else I can assist you with at anytime.

Regards,
Jeff

Morning guys,

Sorry I didn't catch your replies yesterday. I was relying on e-mail confirmations to let me know if any replies to this thread have come in (didn't get any except a confirmation for the original post), or looking out for an email to my e-mail address I specified in my previous reply.

I'll be talking to Brent in a little while and have already put in a separate ticket to the processing company myself, asking for clarification on this issue.

Brent or I will be getting back to you when we hear back from the processing company.

Regards,
Jeff

Just one more very quick remark: It was definitely a Biller issue in my case because my card was never declined. I used the same card to re-subscribe and everything went without a hitch. I thought the whole thing had been corrected but there you are a week or so later???

I received the following e-mails yesterday:

"Good morning ...,

We are currently looking into this. Our billing system shows you were pre-authorized on the 24th, which gives you access. We then do a manual approval of all accounts before they actually get billed. Once we approved the account, the billing company seeks to get payment. It was when this happened on the 27th, that your card returned a declined message. That put your account as inactive as you were never successfully charged for the membership.

Did you cancel your account the day you signed up or the day after? Just trying to get all the information as we look into this.

Have a good day,

- Brent

And afterwards this one: "Good afternoon ....,

We are currently working with our biller to investigate this matter. In the mean time I have setup a temp week password for the site. I will let you know as soon as I get a definitive word back."

It seems like messmer was right on the money.

Jeff, i joined the site on February the 24TH and cancelled the next day. I charged my virtual credit card before joining your site, Jeff, for a little over the exchange of 29.90 USD in euros and i was given full access to your site. Then, the events followed as it is written in the above comments. I haven't been billed as of today according to my virtual credit card statements. Anyways, in a few days time, tops, the card statement should reflect the charges.

Thanks a lot, Jeff.

Hi nostromo,

I apologize for your trouble. Can you please e-mail me your username or subscription ID so I can look into it for you? jeff {at} karupsDOTcom.

Like Messmer mentioned, it sounds like a billing company issue, in which case you wouldn't be billed. Our processing company recently switched back end platforms and as a result, they've had a couple of glitches here & there. When a glitch happens though, 100% of the time it ends up costing us money and never our members. The most likely scenario is that even though your card and membership were approved, they had trouble collecting the funds from your issuing bank. When that happens, they terminate the membership and the access a member has had up until that point becomes free (i.e. you will not be charged for your time in the site).

If by chance it's something else and you did end up getting billed, we will make sure you are reimbursed everyday you missed or lost, plus some extra for your trouble. I assure you that we are not in the business of trying to get over on our members. If that was how we did business, we would have been run out of the industry many years ago rather than going on our 14th year now.

I'm looking forward to hearing from you & will get this resolved immediately after I do.

Regards,
Jeff

Nostromo, the same thing happened to me with KarupsOW. There was a glitch with their billing and a small number of users who subscribed and then canceled within a certain period of time experienced being cut off prematurely. I got in touch with support and was given the few days I had been with them for free, plus they added an extra week when I re-subscribed. Check my comment and responses under KarupsOW to get a better indication what I'm talking about.

I have to admit i've never joined any of the karups sites mainly because i feel uneasy about the unfamiliar billing processor and the experience you describe here does nothing to fill me with confidence about joinging their sites. If they used Ccbill or epoch i probably would have been a member here by now. Hope the webmaster will reply here and sort out the problem for you.

Yeah - unfortunately, the slump in quality really hit after my present membership renewed. If it had been 2-3 weeks earlier, I wouldn't have renewed until the quality of updates improved substantially - and I agree about the Premium sites being part of the slump.

Same here - have not downloaded for a couple of days, but after this comment, I went for it:
Only 110-125 kps.

And very unstable even with DLM - 350 kps tops - normally get 800 kps or more....let's hope it's only very temporary..

REPLY TO #7 from Khan: (nostromo's Reply)

It appears that you've misunderstood what I said.

I did *not* say that those in Europe or the UK are not paying higher prices. I didn not even say it wasn't unfair. What I said is that regional pricing is *not* a factor of currency conversion.

Regional pricing (also known as geo targeted pricing) is webmasters deciding to charge what they feel the market will bear. Their thinking is much like the shop owner who charges tourist a higher price than locals because they figure they'll pay that price.

While I would (personally) agree that regional pricing is unfair, I know that many folks still (wrongly) think it's a factor of an unfair exchange rate ... and that's simply not the case.

At the risk of repeating myself ...

For the record, regional pricing has *nothing* to do with currency exchange.

That doesn't make regional pricing any nicer, but it is wrong thinking to confuse regional pricing with a currency exchange rate.

Regional pricing also lets sites do other things, like you know how in stores someone is more likely to buy something that is 99 cents versus $1. Same thing with sites at $29.99 versus a conversion rate of say $30.27 or $29.61.


Not to mention every time I buy a subscription through ccbill that is charged in Euros I get hit with an additional fee from my credit card company for a purchase in a foreign currency, that does not exist when subscribing to sites through ccbill that do use Regional Pricing.

Where did I say that everyone who gets charged fluctuating prices complains? Where did I say that all sites which don't use regional prices go under?

"Regional pricing" is not an euphemism for looting. It's all in what the website decides. CCBill allows for different charges for U.S. versus European users, a site could set up, say 25 euros for European residents, and $35 for U.S. residents, and some do. That is regional pricing, it is close to fair enough for everyone, CCBill allows it, it's the website's choice to make use of it or not.

There are advantages to regional pricing, it is just up to the site owner to use his own judgment of what he wants to do.

One of the advantages of regional pricings are that the prices are fixed.

If a site is 30 euros/month, in Dollars one month it's $45, next month $47, next month $40, next month $50. I'm sure that fluctuation pisses off a whole other set of subscribers too - "Why am I being forced to pay $50 when last month it was $40???!!!"

Regional pricings are not inherently evil, it's just a tool for the site owner to use at his own discretion. It's not "an euphemism for looting".
