Any Word Press membership plugin you choose would provide you tiered membership, but a plugin I would recommend is Paid Membership Pro.
Dating websites are primarily membership based social networking websites. You have the same elements- user profiles, private messaging, likes, advanced search, and the like. All you have to do now, is use their experience as inputs for your dating website on Word Press. A dating website could be compared to Facebook (a social networking website). Well, all of that- but most importantly it becomes mature.So, a similar website on Word Press would have to be a combination of two major plugins- a social networking plugin and a membership plugin. This list contains a breakdown of elements on a dating website and the Word Press plugins you’d need to provide each feature. To monetize your dating website, you’ll need a Word Press membership plugin.“1 out of 5 relationships start online”It’s written in bold letters when you visit The point to be noted is not as much about the tagline, as it is about the statistics. An additional feature you’d have to add is paid membership.
The fact ‘1 out of 5 relationships begin online’ can be leveraged by others to create similar online dating services. Do you know what happens when a dating website turns 20? With paid membership you can charge users a fee for additional services. To give you a fair view of the features which would be a part of a dating website, I have created a list.With Buddy Press you’ll have private messaging as well.Buddy Press provides a private inbox for each member, using which members can exchange private messages using the username, and avoiding the need of an email id.The Chat plugin by WPMU DEV can be used to add a live chat functionality on your Word Press dating website, and works seamlessly with Buddy Press.The chat status notification is added in a member’s friend list, to give them a visual notification of member availability. You have stories to tell, and passions to share, and things to talk about that are more interesting than the weather.
