payment gateways added - paysafe, maxpay. voguepayWe’re having a huge payment gateway add-on bash at WPDating this month.

It was quite a challenging milestone for our development team to accomplish integrating with not one but three new payment solutions to help dating business owners accept payments regardless of their location.

1. Paysafe

Paysafe offers a variety of services for physical stores and online platforms alike. It is one of the most secure payment service providers which supports over 100 currencies.

Here are the different payment methods that Paysafe offers:

Card payments

    • American Express
    • Mastercard
    • Maestro
    • Visa
    • Diners Club International

Online payments

        • Paysafecard: a native cash voucher that can be bought in Paysafe’s store
        • Paysafecash: allow customers to order online but pay for your services at the nearest payment point with cash

2. Maxpay

Maxpay integration is another addition to WPDating’s add-on list. It is an international payment processing platform that supports more than 130 currencies and expedites transctions with its partnership with more than 32 banking networks.

Some of the best features of MaxPay are

  • Automated Billing
  • Multi-merchant account support
  • Flexible Transaction Routing
  • Direct Solution Integration
  • Customizable Payment Forms

3. VoguePay

VoguePay is another trusted and seamless payment platform that is super flexible from registration to withdrawing funds for users. Its simple API supports integration with over 20 plugins. It is one of the most requested payment gateways from Nigeria to be specific.

Some highlights of VoguePay are

  • Digital Wallet
  • Online payments
  • Invoice management
  • Mobile topup

That sums up the payment add-ons that have been integrated with WPDating.

In other news, we have added yet another language pack.

Croatian Language Pack Release!

As a cherry on top for our May update, we are excited to announce that Croatian language pack has been released.

It is priced at an affordable rate of just $19. Learn more about it here.

We hope our efforts keep adding value to your dating business and will continue releasing more exciting features in the next month (even though it is going to be quite challenging considering this release alone).

See you in the next update!

7 Essential Features Dating Websites Need in 2019

7 Essential Features Dating Websites Need in 2019

It is no surprise that online dating has become an integral part of our lives today.

According to Statista, approximately 33.9 million U.S. users accessed online dating services in 2018 alone.

This clearly indicates that there’s a huge market for dating websites – and you can start a profitable business by simply focusing on a niche audience.

However, you will need to make sure your website offers some fundamental as well as unique features to attract your target audience.

Here are the 7 essential features every dating website needs in 2019.

1.   Advanced Search

advanced search

One of the most important aspects of using a dating website is having to freedom to be as picky as you want with your potential dates.

An advanced search feature can help your dating website members use filters such as age, height, hair color, ethnicity, hobbies, pets, and so forth.

Dating websites usually ask new sign-ups to answer a questionnaire to get this information. This data can later be used to provide relevant results based on search parameters.

2.   Finding People Nearby

live location

The purpose of using dating websites is to ultimately meet someone that you’re compatible with. If they live on the other side of the world, it really makes no sense to chat forever.

Allowing your users to find other members that are near to them geographically can be done by tracking their IP address and filtering out members in close proximity.

You can use this feature by asking your users to set a certain radius while searching for other members.

3.   Date Tracker

date tracker

Frequent users of online dating websites often lose track of the people that they have dated so far.

A date tracker that privately stores the experience of the user’s dates with a certain person can help them to filter out the matches that they would like to consider taking the relationship a step further. Or alternatively, note down red flags to avoid them at all costs in the future.

4.   People who viewed your profile

who viewed my profile

Even LinkedIn sends you notifications when someone views your profile. It might not necessarily indicate that the person who viewed you is interested in you.

Someone might view a profile out of curiosity. But dating apps/websites users find validation in knowing that they’re turning some eyes and in turn increases engagement.

However, allowing your members to see the list of people they recently viewed is also equally important which many dating services miss out on.

5.   Multi-language support

multi language dating

Unless you’re committed to not allowing your dating business to serve a global audience, you must invest in offering your dating website in multiple languages.

A single language addition to your dating website can exponentially increase the number of users, which is natural considering how easy it is for someone to converse in their own language.

It might seem like a costly investment but WPDating offers almost over 25 international language packs each priced at an affordable $19.  Learn more about it here.

6.   Offer a mobile dating appmobile dating app

I don’t even need to remind you how often you’re on your mobile phone. US adults spend an average of 3.5 hours on their mobile devices in a single day.

If your dating website does not offer a dating app, you’re bound to lose a huge portion of your target audience.

Any dating service that is exclusively web-based will risk getting lower engagement simply because of the fact that people tend to find mobile apps much more accessible.

7.   User privacy

user privacy online dating

Perhaps one of the biggest fears of dating online stems from your customers’ privacy concerns. Regardless of how normal online dating is in today’s context, you’re still meeting strangers which can be terrifying considering the number of creeps that are out there.

Ensuring your users that their data is encrypted, confidential and not shared with any third-parties will help you gain their trust.

Now that you’re aware of the essential features that dating websites need in 2019, let me present you with a single solution that offers all of these features.

WPDating is a complete white-label dating website solution that offers affordable packages for individual as well as business needs. Take a look at our pricing here.

Powerful New Features Released by WPDating – April 2019 Update

By | Dating Software, Dating Theme | No Comments

april-feature-update-2019

As we step into the second quarter of 2019, WPDating has added even more features to keep your dating website up-to-date with the ever-changing online dating industry standards.

Let’s jump right into it!

Save messages as drafts

This feature has been one of the most requested by our clients for good reason and we’re delighted to finally announce that this feature is now live.

Your dating website’s users can now save incomplete messages by simply clicking a ‘save draft’ button and have it intact for later. Hopefully they don’t save that draft about confessing their love for too long.

Dropdown UI added in advance search

This is a must-have feature for dating websites with a huge customer base. Your dating website’s users can use multiple filters to narrow down the results while searching for a specific profile.

Let’s say you’re searching for a married guy called Charles aged 40 who lives in California with a pet dog. You can now find his profile in 10 seconds.

Better user-search mechanism

Yet another improvement related to the search feature, WPDating’s user-search mechanism is now much more responsive. This improvement will help you search for other users by simply entering a few letters and get results based on the closest match.

It can come in really handy when your users have to search for a complex name like “Blaszczykowski”. Enter ‘Blas’ into the search box and you’ll find his profile right away (hopefully there aren’t thousands of other Blaszczykowskis).

Slider-WD plugin removed

After putting quite some time into considering removal of Slider-WD plugin, we have finally decided upon getting rid of it due to two main reasons

  • Removing this plugin helped us optimize the overall size of our plugin
  • DIVI themes is hardly used by any of our clients at this point

Rest assured, you can still get a slider feature built in WPDating plugin.

Farewell, Slider-WD.

General bug fixes

It wouldn’t be an update if we didn’t occasionally squash out some annoying bugs. As always, our QA team helped us track down some minor issues and bugs which have been safely taken care of.

You can expect a better overall experience from our plugin with improvements on some minor unseen aspects as well.

WPDating team is super excited to announce the release of a brand new and updated LoveMatch theme packed with even more powerful features and a beautiful new interface.

The first release of LoveMatch was back in October of 2017 and it turned out to be our most preferred dating themes.

Our design and development team have been busy for the last year adding new features and tweaking the existing ones to make sure we deliver an updated LoveMatch theme with a better experience.

LoveMatch is the perfect dating theme for any WordPress based site with the flexibility of adding numerous widgets that you can use to personalize as per your needs.

Some Highlights of the New LoveMatch Dating Theme

banner of lovematch themeSeamless User Interface

The home page of the new LoveMatch theme is simple and easy to navigate.

Simply put in your credentials with the help of a few dropdown menus and you’re ready to find your match.

Responsive Design

Regardless of how great a theme looks on a desktop PC or laptop, it is even more important to make sure it provides the same experience on mobile phones. Since there are more visitors browsing with their mobile phones than their desktop computers, responsiveness simply cannot be overlooked.

This is why the LoveMatch dating theme has been optimized for responsive design no matter what device you’re using.

Minimalistic, Clean and Informative Layout

It is pretty challenging to create a theme with a minimalistic design but with enough content to provide detailed information.

All of the pages on LoveMatch dating theme have very few texts but have been complimented with graphical aspects that make sure your customers can navigate with ease.

Upgraded Member Area

lovematch members areaJust like any other business, a dating website relies heavily on its customers. In this case, they’re your visitors who have signed up.

The improved LoveMatch theme offers everything from sending messages, sharing audio and video to even a dating tracker that keeps track of the people a member has dated.

Your members can see who has viewed their profile, the profiles they have viewed and a trending section that provides a list of the popular profiles.

We hope this new release of the updated LoveMatch theme will be the perfect solution for your dating business.

Exciting New Features and Improvements by WPDating: February Update

By | Dating Software | No Comments
February 2019 Update

February 2019 UpdateIt has been quite a productive start to WPDating’s 2019 as our development team invested a lot of time and resources to improve our dating business products and services.

Our team started off 2019 by taking a close look at our beloved customers’ feedback and created a roadmap to come up with solutions that best addressed just those needs.

We are just two months into 2019 and already excited to announce some great improvements and additions to our entire products and services catalog.

Since good things come in lists, here’s one for our February update:

  1. Hungarian Language Support

                 Hungarian marks the 22nd international language in WPDating’s ever-growing multi-language pack for Dating Plugin.  While we have already released the most used language packs, we still believe in catering to all languages around the world.

In case you’re wondering what the remaining 21 language packs are, feel free to take a look here.

  1. WP Multilingual Pack Support for ALL of our Themes!

Due to an overwhelming number of requests from our users asking for international language support in our themes (WPDating, Lavish & LoveMatch), our development team set this as the top priority for 2019.

After hours of development and numerous trial and errors, we’re confident that WPDating’s multi-language pack is now compatible across all of our themes.

To make this transition possible, we decided to switch from QTranslate to WP Multilingual Pack because it was clearly a better fit for our customers.

  1. Better Packages with Better Prices – Completely New Pricing Page

Let’s admit it – having a lot of options is pretty confusing. This is exactly why we revamped our pricing page with a couple of (better) changes.

Compared to the 5 original packages we had last year, we now offer only 4 – Standard, Platinum, Platinum Multi-License and VIP + APPS.  

Instead of adding new packages, we decided to reverse the whole process and ended up getting rid of the lesser-used features and included premium features in even the starter packages.

  1. Brand New Add-Ons Packages

Considering the developments we made in 2018, a new add-ons page offering all of our updated plugins and services was well overdue.

With additions of payment gateways such as Mollie and a dedicated chat add-on for WPDating Plugin called Comet Chat, our new add-ons has been updated with a better interface and even better combo-deals.

See it for yourself through this link.                                                                    

  1. WPDating Main Plugin Update

Perhaps one of our oldest and the core product in our entire catalog is the WPDating main plugin.

You could even refer to it as the main character in the entire movie who ends up victorious in every scene.

While the main plugin does not have any groundbreaking changes or new fancy looks, our development team has spent the last two months relentlessly working on squashing bugs and releasing fixes that contribute to making it one of the best dating plugin in the industry.

  1. Valentine Season Offer: 30% OFF sitewide

Now that you have made it to the end of this article, here’s a little thank-you gift from me to you – an exclusive Valentine season offer to help you get started with your dating business in 2019.

Use code: VLOG30 and get 30% off any of our products and services.

Note: Offer valid until 20th of February, 2019.

 To wrap things up, we hope these updates and improvements help our customers to create even better dating websites using our dating plugins, themes and add-ons.

We’re halfway through February and have even more  exciting features lined up for the rest of the year.

Have any suggestions for our team? Let us know in the comments and your request might even be released next!

Best WordPress Dating Theme for 2019

By | Dating Software | 2 Comments
Best WordPress Dating Theme 2019

It is no surprise that the dating industry has seen significant growth recently.  According to Forbes, there are more than 2,500 dating services online (most of which are based on a WordPress Dating Theme) in U.S. alone with 1,000 new online dating services opening every year.

You have most probably used at least one of those dating services and might even be planning to start your own dating business because clearly, there’s money to be made in this industry.

A decent WordPress Dating theme can offer you a complete package to run a professional dating website in no time. There are plenty of free dating themes that you can choose from.

However, if you’re serious about providing a professional and fully functional dating website to your users, investing in a proper dating theme will undoubtedly reap high rewards.

Let’s start with the basics.

Choosing a WordPress Dating Theme for your Niche Market

When it comes to dating themes, there are numerous options available to choose from – perhaps to the point you get confused which one to invest in.

Since your product (dating website) is entirely dependent on how your website looks, the success of your dating business depends highly on its aesthetics and user-experience.

It must look attractive, professional, responsive across different devices and informative all at the same time.

Here are some of the features you’ll get from our LoveMatch and Lavish Date WordPress dating themes are:

Basic search and advanced search – This feature provides your users with a convenient way to make the customized search of the user/profiles.

Near Me – This element allows your users to users to discover other members that are near them geographically.

Meet Me – With the help of this feature, your users can easily select randomly chosen profiles if they wish to meet them but under the condition that the selection is mutual.

Date Tracker – Keep track of the partner you’ve gone on a date with – perfect for people who have a hard time keeping track of their past dates’ names.

Profile commenting and blocking – as the name suggest this gives the user more control over what he/she prefers. However, every comment goes public only after user approval.

Skype chat integration – To provide a seamless video chat experience you can get in Skype  

Who viewed me/ I viewed – Get notified on who viewed your profile and the people you have viewed. It helps to track or keep the record of a specific user (in case you have a favourite).

Send Wink/Gift – Send winks and different gits to let know a user that you are interested in them or appreciate them

User privacy – Have control of your data without any loose ends.

Using WordPress Dating Theme to Create a Custom Dating Website

Customized WordPress Dating ThemeNothing fits you quite right like a perfectly tailored custom suit. The reason behind custom products being preferred over a general one is pretty simple – they’re created to fit YOUR needs and no one else’s.

This is why customized packages tend to cost much higher than general packages but they’re still worth the investment.

WPDating offers custom WordPress Dating Themes for just this reason – we understand that your requirements are unique and you might want to invest in creating a dating website that aligns with the smallest possible details that you have in your mind.

Let’s take a look at what our personalized themes offer:

  • Add your preferable features & functions to your dating software.
  • You will be receiving 160/80 hours of pure custom development from our experienced developers depending on your package.
  • You can use these hours to add the Unique Features, Payment gateway & Personalize it to your wishes
  • You can even customize the theme, event management integration to your site and many more – basically anything that you think might improve your site.
  • You can use the custom-built site on multiple domains with our Multi-Site License.

*Note:  Every task, feature and function that you desire should be able to be added under your allocated hours.

The Benefits of Using WordPress Dating Themes for Dating Business

WordPress Dating Theme Benefits

You might still be wondering what the benefits of using a WordPress dating theme are compared to other solutions. First, a dedicated dating theme is created while keeping the end user’s experience as the top priority.

Dating themes can be used to serve different niche markets consisting of various demographics. You can customize the dating theme to make sure it is compatible with all groups of customers, regardless of their interests.

In a nutshell, WordPress Dating Themes offer the following opportunities for your dating business:

  • Customizable as per your Niche Market
  • Interactive and Attractive Interface
  • Industry-leading Features
  • Beautiful Aesthetics with Equally Powerful Functionality

WordPress dating themes are much more preferred than traditional manual programming in terms of looks and user experience. You get much better control of your dating website both before and after publishing your website because of the easy interface that WordPress offers. As your customers grow, you can invest in making your matchmaking website even more advanced by adding better features.  

You do not even need to be able to write a single line of code or hire a programmer to make small changes. This not only helps you save time but also the cost that developers charge, which is hardly affordable by most entrepreneurs just starting out in the industry.

This finally brings to the big question:

How much does a WordPress Dating Theme Cost?

WPDating’s WordPress Dating Theme starts at an affordable price of just $149.

Here’s a brief summary of what all of our packages offer. If you’re just starting out, the standard package offers a complete solution to your dating business.
