User Search, Proximity Search

Search for users: quick and extended mode. Proximity search, e.g.50 miles from Los Angeles.

Results in photo gallery, profile details, map view.


Matching users using profile info and sending new matches by email. One of the most targeted and effective monetization techniques for online dating sites.

Profile Cover Gallery

Beautiful profile photo album display, a-la Instagram. Make people care about their profile look to improve the attractiveness of your online dating profiles.

Advanced photo view/upload

Beautiful Pinterest-style album view, instant browsing, full-size slide-show – everything to minimize the page load time and let your users enjoy more photos during one seat. You do care about conversions, right?

Drag’n’drop profile builder

Remember the times when making profiles look great was hard? We don’t either. With SkaDate it’s always been a piece of cake.

Private Messages

Let paid subscribers easily communicate on your site. A person who received a message is more likely to subscribe to read it.

Real-time notifications

A message, a wink, a virtual gift – if something happens, SkaDate will let them know ASAP. Real-time interactivity is priceless and should be harnessed for users to enjoy. So they return for more.

Automatic SPAM protection

We use sophisticated algorithms to filter out automated spambot registrations. You will not even see those on your website.

Google Maps for Location

Your users can enter arbitrary location data, like town, district, or zip code, and it will be translated into Google Maps data points. Google Maps provides unmatched accuracy and always up-to-date location data.

Built-in SEO

Limited marketing budget? SkaDate X will make sure you get as much free traffic as possible from search engines. Capitalize on every incoming link, every registered profile!

Virtual gifts

Send lady a flower, anyone? A proven gamification tactic to maximize subscription or virtual goods revenue.

Credit system

Offer users to buy or earn credits to spend on various site benefits, including Hot list, messaging, virtual gifts, and more. This is one of the most powerful monetization mechanisms on modern dating sites.

Membership level management

You can have any variations of premium (paid) membership on your site. Whatever makes sense for your niche and business model.
