SF GATE - May 5 - Brandon Wey's new dating site is called WhatsYourPrice.com. His company Infostream operates such sites as SeekingArrangement.com and SeekingMillionaire.com. Both businesses were instant successes -- SeekingArrangement.com now has ~800K members. WhatsYourPrice.com is a site that lets "generous" members bid cold hard cash -- $20, $100, even $1,000 a pop -- for dates with "attractive" ones. It's a concept he calls "eBay for dating." It's worked so far. The site has registered 30K members who have already paid (and been paid) for ~5K dates. "On WhatsYourPrice, you put money down to get a girl's attention, she gets the money to reduce her risk in wanting to meet you, and you get a guaranteed chance to prove yourself," Brandong says.

Mark Brooks: WhatsYourPrice is a fun spin on an old model. Hooker...I mean hookup sites for the money-inclined and money-laiden. Lay being the operative word.
