Last time we talked about making money with SkaDate dating script through banner ads. This, however, is not the only way to monetize your online dating site. Today we take a look at another popular feature of SkaDate Dating Software – Virtual Gifts. Your members can send them to each other to show affection and foster communication. This is a great way to liven up the often dry online interaction and make it more personal.
Note that your site members do not pay real money for virtual gifts. Instead they buy credits, which can be later spent on various actions and site benefits. You can also grant credits to your visitors as incentives to buy better memberships or to continue using the site. One of the best ways for your members to spend said credits is to buy virtual gifts and send them to a potential match. It’s one of the best ways to show serious intentions.
As a site owner you have great flexibility with setting credit prices for the gifts, adding new ones, or even creating separate categories for easier access and navigation. The handling and editing of your virtual gifts shop are done via separate plugin (included in the default installation). Here’s how you can set it all up.
Go to Admin Area > Plugins > Installed Plugins.
Find the Virtual Gifts plugin – move the mouse cursor over it, and click the Settings button.
You will be directed to the Virtual Gifts Plugin Settings page.
You can create, edit, delete gifts in the Existing Gifts section.
