Signing Up at BiCupid
Signing up with BiCupid takes a bit of time and effort. Besides the personal information form that you need to fill out, you will be also required to provide a profile headline, a paragraph about yourself, and another paragraph about the person you are looking for in the website. You will also be required to upload a profile photo, which you can import from Facebook. Your profile photo will undergo an approval process which usually takes about 30 minutes, but could last up to 48 hours.
When you register an account in BiCupid, you need to provide a valid mobile number. A verification code will be sent to the number you’ve provided. This just verifies that you are a true resident of the country you are registering from.
