Web Platform

SkaDate allows you to build a fully functioning dating website without coding. Moreover, we can offer hosting services to support your business at the start.

Native Mobile App

Native Mobile App for Android and iOs is built using Flutter. Apart from development, we also provide assistance with the submission process to both app stores.

Progressive Web App

PWA or Progressive Web App. It's a webpage with all the features of a usual app, that you don’t need to distribute in Google and App Stores. A perfect solution if your app has adult content.

Simulated Chat Management

A standalone platform that allows you and admins to message from fake accounts, send automated messages and even connect ChatGPT to reply in case no one is online.

Freshly Designed Dating Theme

We understand that looks are everything when it comes to online dating. That's why we complemented our dating script with “Midnight”—a new, modern, and sexy-looking site theme that is not only visually pleasing for the eye but also ensures intuitive and easy navigation.

  • Jan De Volder, Gratis Dating
    The SkaDate dating script offers great value. It was easy to translate and customize it for my local market (Belgium/Netherlands).
  • David, Bioflirt
    SkaDate has allowed us to transform an “old fashion style” site to an efficient dating site that meets the requirements of our members with a lot of flexibility.
  • Lawrence, Brainiac Dating
    SkaDate created a great website that saved me a lot of effort as if I built a site by myself from scratch. Now there are over 13,000 members in just over one year! SkaDate support was helpful to get my site up and running. SkaDate’s PHP code and database are efficiently designed so that with only some basic knowledge of PHP you can easily modify it yourself, or if necessary it is relatively inexpensive to outsource small enhancements.

Technologies We Use 


Examples of Dating Websites on SkaDate

Examples of Dating Apps on SkaDate


1What is SkaDate?
SkaDate is a dating script based on Oxwall - an open-source mobile-friendly social platform that is a product of the development company Skalfa LLC. As a developer, we are not only selling the piece of code but also help you to start a full-fledged dating business.
2Can I switch between packages?
Yes, you can upgrade to any higher package in case you find that you need more for your business to grow. We'll be happy to upgrade you for the mere price difference between any two packages. No hidden catch.
3Can I just buy a dating script?
We don't sell just dating software (or dating scripts as some people call it) because through the years we discovered this is not what dating startups need. Although we would make more money by also offering an option of just a piece of software, this is not what we believe is good. 35% of our customers are refugees from other companies selling some software to play with. So those who are serious give up playing at some point and come to work with professionals, us.
4How long does it take SkaDate to set up a website/app for me?
The time required depends on your specific setup. Here are some guiding estimates: - Default website: 24 hours (on business days); - Default apps: 2-4 weeks for Google Play and up to 2-3 months for Apple Store (because of App Store approval times); - For Progressive Web Apps: 1 week, provided you have submitted all the requested information. - Custom development: always estimated separately. All these timelines start after we obtain the necessary setup information from you. Also, please note that 3rd party hosting can increase the time due to potential incompatibilities not easily detected upfront.
5Are there any ongoing fees with SkaDate?
After the initial SkaDate solution purchase, you may only pay for optional services that you choose. Oh, and there are absolutely no hidden fees.
6Do you guarantee my apps will be accepted by the App Stores?
Unfortunately, not a single vendor can guarantee you that. This is due to the fact that Apple and Google are constantly tightening their regulations towards the original content in their stores. If Apple or Google decide that your app is not unique or original enough, or they have too many similar themed apps in their stores, they will reject your app.
7What happens if my app is rejected by either or both of the App Stores?
Fortunately for you, our apps fully utilize the Progressive Web App technology. This means you do not have to rely on app stores at all, instead directly delivering the mobile experience to your visitors. If you still want to continue with distributing your apps through the app stores, we will do our best to appeal the decision until your apps are accepted, or we receive a definite unappealable rejection. The only way further will be to introduce significant changes to the app code and design at additional costs.
8Is support included?
We offer 1 month of support included for Basic and Complete Packages. Premium Package customers enjoy 1 year of included support. 1 month is more than enough to set everything up but if you need more support from us, it's available for just $99/month.
9What kind of support do you offer?
We offer a standard 24-hour email support response guarantee (excluding weekends), although a typical response often takes just a couple of hours during work hours. Our standard support hours are 9 AM to 5 PM GMT+6 (8 PM to 4 AM PST), Monday through Friday.
10Why don't you offer free support?
Consider a scenario: You have some sort of technical problem with your hosting that significantly affects your business and you urgently request our assistance to resolve it. We have a team of trained professionals ready to assess your specific situation, identify the problem, and deliver a solution in a timely manner. The question is, will they work for free? Having been in the business since 2004, we have seen many competitors come and go, all attempting to offer free support in a desperate bid to boost sales. In fact, when you see a "free support" promise, this is a big red flag—a clear sign of prioritizing sales over sustainable service.
11What programming language is SkaDate written in?
The latest SkaDate version was updated to PHP 8 , which is deservedly the most popular and easy-to-understand programming language for web development.
MySQL 5 is used as data storage, while jQuery framework (the most popular JavaScript library today) and Smarty template engine are employed to simplify the process of design customization.
