Our focus at Raya is to provide members with access to exciting people and opportunities around the world. We are
a private community where people come to connect for dating, networking, and friendship.
Prospective members may download the app and submit an application. Once submitted, applications are placed in queue and reviewed continually. An applicant's status can change from "waitlisted" to "accepted" at any time.
Once accepted, members have the option to purchase a 1, 6, or 12 month auto-renewing membership and will have full functionality of the entire service while their subscription is active.
Raya's community values – trust, respect, and privacy – are core to the membership experience. Members who act in a manner that is not reflective of these values and other community guidelines may have their accounts suspended or terminated. Similarly, Raya exhibits those values as a company by giving members full control over their visibility within the community at all times and ensuring that personal information is secure and never shared, among other things.
Initial payment is charged via iTunes Account at confirmation of purchase and auto-renewals are charged within 24 hours prior to the end of the applicable period. Auto-renewal may be turned off at any time through iTunes Account Settings. Any subscription cancellation will be effective at the end of the applicable period.
It’s been an interesting experience. I downloaded the app at a friend’s recommendation given my creative background and interests. Uploaded my information and profile background. And promptly was told that my application was on a waitlist. That status hasn’t changed. I am attractive and I am successful at what I do. But somehow the team or algorithm at Raya doesn’t think so. And because the waitlist doesn’t let you go beyond one screen in the app as a user you have absolutely no way to provide any feedback. It creates an unpleasant and rather elitist brand image that frankly is not that appealing.

Probably one of the most superficial apps I’ve ever been on. “Self centered, ego driven” apps. People match with you and then don’t say anything. Either I’m too ugly or too uncool. Sometimes months will go by with zero matches. Why must you pay for something so non-beneficial.

I was referred to the app and I've been waiting for 6 weeks for approval and counting. There doesn't look like an end in sight. They give no updates on your status so I'm just sitting in the dark. Really awful process. Very frustrating

Paid apps should be expected to be largely free from problems. You get served the same 10 profiles over and over and over... not super helpful. Could be so neat if they got proper development and spent some of their cash on making the dang thing work!
