In order to use their services, users have to pay a variable fee depending on how long before they die they create their accounts (individuals are billed yearly), select keyholders, who are the individuals that will be in charge of notifying the site of your death, and then start uploading stuff, like goodbye letters, special secrets, or any other piece of information that you want the people that are left behind to know. Interestingly, users can set up groups of recipients of letters, so that different people will have access to different material. Also, users can decide at which time after their death they want letters to be posted, which seems like quite convenient if, for instance, you want to say happy birthday or happy anniversary to a loved one.
