Who we are

Why do we charge for membership

You may be asking yourself why we do not offer our services for free, like other social media platforms.

Well, let's start by explaining that the idea that other social media platforms are free is an illusion. If something’s free for you it usually means you are NOT the client. You are a commodity.

We will not only not be tracking your every move and selling it to third parties, but we will also provide an environment free of constant ads, disrupting your experience. This is one of the many reasons why we have to charge for membership, and we wanted to keep that transparent so you can understand the value you are getting by joining.

In addition, by charging for membership, we can not only do a better job keeping our platform free of spammers and trolls, but we can also better assist and keep the ones who love what the platform has to offer.

We also did not want to go after venture capital funding, since we believe we are better off sustaining ourselves with our own revenue at this point and create something truly unique and amazing, without the interference (and sometimes greed) that comes attached to this kind of investment.

Not only do we need to pay bills and salaries like anyone else, but we also wanted to create a space that will help you do so if you are a business owner. And like one, you would understand what we mean with the charges.

And finally, everything you share is used only to provide a better service to you.

Can we find AlloFlare in my App Store

We are currently only available on your browser, but an app is definitely on the horizon. Stay tuned!

Using AlloFlare

Signing Up and Memberships

Before you can enjoy what our community has to offer, you will need to select a membership level that you are most comfortable with.

If you would like to have a look and experience what our platform is like for free without commitment, you can choose the Monthly membership option, which will only begin charging you $11 after a month. If you would like to cancel it and not be charged, you can do so within that month.

We also offer a yearly subscription option for $99 that will bill again after a year (where you can save about $33/year) and a lifetime access one for $399 (usually $777), where we will never bill you again.

Please note that you can cancel your membership at any time, but we will offer no refunds after the cycle has been billed, so make sure you cancel it before the recurring date is expected.

Once you have entered your information and confirmed your subscription, you will receive an email from us to activate your account.

After that, you can just log in as usual and update your membership at any time on our platform.

Sharing Content

As a member of AlloFlare, you can post discussions, photos, videos, etc on our platform and be yourself so that other members can find you and connect with you. We do have strict content and comment restrictions for pornography, obscenity, abuse, spam, and derogatory behavior, and anyone who breaks those rules will be banned from the community.

Users are also able to report others that are breaching our terms of use, as we would like to keep this community as respectful, polite and enjoyable as possible.

AlloFlare for Brands

AlloFlare is a platform for anyone who works or are interested in fashion (retail store owners online and offline, photographers, manufacturers, designers, influencers, models, beauty service providers, magazines, brands, or any other person who are into fashion). This is a space where everyone can easily connect with others on their field and grow their brand.

AlloFlare was created to help brands all over the world in an specific industry to showcase what they are all about, build their brand identity, demonstrate their latest products and services on the marketplace, meet with industry partners and customers, study activities of rivals, and examine recent market trends and opportunities.

There is a lot of work that needs to be put into building a brand (organically or not) on the current big platforms such as Instagram, Google Search, YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, etc, and each space makes it more and more difficult for brands to grow over the years, while trying to get a huge piece of the action. Only the ones with a lot of money to spend on ads, or those who joined it on their beginning, are able to thrive.

Our platform was designed to be free of ads and spams for users in our community. However, we created a Marketplace and Events tab where users can easily find and post products, services, and events that are in tune with their passions.

Brands are more than welcome to have their own profile on our platform, as each membership allows you to create a profile as a user or a brand and share content either way.

Marketplace

This is the place where brands can post an ad for products or services provided.

As a brand and member of the community, you can post a product/service on this tab by clicking on "Create" on the Marketplace tab. You are then taken to a form where you can fill out with information. We do charge $1.00 for each ad you create and it stays live for one month. The ad you created will also be shown on your profile.

Events

This is the place where brands can create events related to fashion, meetups for the community, and store launches in order to bring awareness and better connect with customers.

As a brand and member of the community, you can create an event by clicking on "Create your event here" on that tab. You can choose to post a fashion-related event, a fashion meetup or a store launch. You are then taken to a form where you can fill out with information about your event. We don't charge for this service yet but we do need to approve the event to avoid the ones that are not relevant to the community or that seems to violate our terms of use and security.

Once your event is approved it will be shown on our Events tab and it will be live for 3 months.

Earn Money by Becoming an Allo Star Member

If it wasn't enough for you to be able to enjoy all the benefits that AlloFlare has to offer, we also reward you with real money when you promote our platform to your friends and followers.

All you have to do is to sign up to our Allo Star Member network and we will reward you with 20% over the total amount every time we receive payments from your referred friends' membership.

So let's say you have referred a friend who purchased our monthly membership. Once we have confirmed the payment of $11 and the funds have reached our account, you will receive about $2 in credit with us for that member. If that member continues paying for his/her membership, you will keep getting those $2 each month his/her membership is active.

The same happens if you referred a friend who purchased our yearly or lifetime memberships, earning about $19 when he/she subscribed then $19 each year that membership is active or $79 in one go, respectively! As you can see, this is a great way to earn money within our platform and ultimately be a member who can enjoy AlloFlare completely for free.

There is only one catch: we only ask you to invite members who are interested in fashion and can take advantage of our community.

Once you sign up as an Allo Star Member, you will have access to our creatives and instantly start promoting. Our cookies last for 30 days.

We pay our Allo Star Members via Paypal every time you have accumulated $16 in credit with us.

PS: We are currently working on setting up automatic payments every time we receive payments from your referred friends via Stripe so stay tuned.

 

Stars System

Our Star system allows you to buy, earn and show Stars on your profile and community updates.

We created this system to allow our members to not only share their achievements and rewards with others but for us to also reward our most active, treasured members.

There are 3 ways you can earn Stars:

  • Being active in the community. For more information on how that works please click here. You automatically earn 10 stars and a badge by becoming a member. Accumulate more stars and you will be rewarded with more badges and special benefits from us.
  • Buying stars through our secure system (which is done only via Paypal at the moment).
  • Receiving stars from other members. You can also send stars and reward other users in order to show them appreciation, love, etc.

Please keep in mind that you can also lose Stars if you act in a disrespectful way within the community or breach our terms of conduct and use.
