What do I do after creating a ticket?

After you fill out the form stating your problem, an email will be sent to you (at the address that you have mentioned in the form). This email will contain your ticket number. You'll use this ticket number to login to Shadi.com's Customer Support. After logging on, you'll be able to see your query and Support Personnel's reply (Please allow 24-hrs for Support Personnel's reply). If you feel that you forgot to mention something in your query, you may add it in the same ticket OR you may open another ticket.
