Messages in the «TITLE UNITS» format can be created only by the Owner of the system; they are designed for being sent from one member of the system (SENDER) to any other (RECIPIENT).
Messages in the «TITLE UNITS» format can be created only by the Owner of the system; they are designed for being sent from one member of the system (SENDER) to another (RECIPIENT).
Records on exchange of «TITLE UNITS» messages are saved to an archives in the software of both the SENDER and RECIPIENT and to the Log of the system.
«TITLE UNITS» messages cannot be deleted by their owners; they can be transferred from one member to another. The Operator of the WEBMONEY TRANSFER system insures safety and integrity of all the «TITLE UNITS» messages, this being the major function of the System.
Within WMID, a user can create any number of specific credentials (purses) consisting of 12 digits and a letter prefix identifying the type of «TITLE UNITS».
A «TITLE UNITS» message can be sent to any member of the system having a registered purse within his WMID used to keep record of «TITLE UNITS» messages of a particular type.

TRANSACTION DATE AND TIME (date and time of recording this transaction in the WEBMONEY TRANSFER system);
COMMENT to a transaction.
Upon receiving «TITLE UNITS» messages, the «AMOUNT» in the RECIPIENT’S purse will be increased by an amount equal to the quantity of the «TITLE UNITS» messages received in the particular transaction.
