An online reading from a medium is obtained by contacting one through a website and initiating the reading through chat, video chat or email. As of 2015, mediums are available on websites such as Elios-Medium.com, ScientificPsychic.com and Tara-Medium.com. BestPsychicDirectory.com offers a directory of different mediums for users to choose from.
Elios-Medium.com and Tara-Medium.com ask the user to provide personal information, such as name and email address, and a medium then emails them a psychic reading.
ScientificPsychic.com offers an "Interactive Psychic Chat" with Madame Flora, which requires the user to type a discussion topic into the field. Madame Flora's computer-generated responses are then relayed to the user.
