What works for me:

Make sure they are both WELL fed,
Add Male to female enclosure,
Don't panic if it looks like all out war, it can be quite scary to watch, if you are really concerned, try again later. I had a pair fight for 40mins, but no stings really hit home, just clubbing each other with their telsons. Never mated though, turns out female was already gravid.
Be prepared to remove the male as soon as he has done his job.(though others say theirs got on fine after, I like to be prepared)

Best of luck:D

There is no science to this at all. Just put 'em together. Really its that simple. I have recieved male and females in the mail and put them in the same cage as soon as I unpack them and they mate immediatly.
