SkaDate’s user-friendly script is written in PHP 7. This is the most popular and easy-to-understand programming language for web development.
What Are SkaDate’s Best Features?
We’ve built SkaDate to provide a complete solution for your online dating business. All the essential features you need for user engagement and monetization are included right from the start.
Need something extra special? You can easily add on a number of native or third-party plugins.
The desktop version of SkaDate offers users a feature-rich dating experience. They’ll be connecting with quality matches in no time. You can add non-essential features according to your unique requirements.
Here are just some of the most important desktop features:
- Targeted Matchmaking
Our matching algorithm automatically finds matches by comparing user profiles. Once we find a potential match, we notify users via email. The success of targeted matchmaking is one of the best monetization techniques for any online dating platform.
- Video Chat
Your users can make voice and video calls using WebRTC technology. Video chat is a very effective monetization stream available with higher membership tiers. This option requires an SSL certificate included with SkaDate hosting. We offer free server availability for video chat, however, paid servers are necessary for continuously stable operation.
- Membership Level Management
Create any combination of paid or free memberships. Endless variations depend on your particular dating niche and business model.
- Credit System
One of your most powerful monetization tools. The credit system allows users to buy or earn credits for spending on various site benefits. Benefits could include featuring on a “hot list,” virtual gifts, personal messaging, and more.
- Facebook Connect
By allowing users to connect directly to their Facebook profiles, you’ll see a dramatic jump in sign-ups and profile completion rates.
- Built-in SEO Services
Even with a limited marketing budget, our built-in SEO features will help you gather as much free traffic as possible.
- Template Customization
Quickly build a dating platform that stands out from the crowd. We offer a wide variety of templates and customization options. No web design experience necessary.
- Google Maps For Location Services
Harness the power of Google to give users incredible location accuracy that is always up to date. Users can also use proximity search to define their match results by physical distance.
- Advanced Photo View
An image speaks a thousand words. Our advanced photo viewer allows instant browsing of gorgeous Pinterest-style album views or full-sized slideshows. Photos are one of your greatest conversion tools.
- One-on-one Chat
Paid subscribers can communicate easily with one another. For example, suppose a free member receives a message from a premium subscriber. They'll be much more likely to sign up to connect with other users.
Other features that come with the desktop version:
- Drag and Drop Profile Builder allows users to set up their dream profiles quickly
