We continue going through monetization tools available in Dating Pro site software.

Previously we have discussed Lift up profile, Refer a friend, Carousel. Those are great built-in tools that can be set up any time.

Now here are some communication tools that may be useful to your site members and bring you money at the same time.

1) Calls
Members can anonymously call each other on your website. You can charge a bit more than existing tariffs to earn the % difference in call costs. To set it up, please go to:
Admin mode>Modules management>VoIP calls

Please note: Dating Pro is using Twilio.com to enable calls on your website. So you can activate the VoIP service on your site by inserting your Twilio account details in Admin mode>Modules management>VoIP calls>VoIP settings

All the data is given to you by Twilio after registration. Please pay attention to the “Income per cent” field. This is where you define how the pricing will increase for site users.

For site users, call link appears if they have indicated their phone number in Profile. Phone number cannot be seen by anyone except site administrator. There’s a “call requests” page where a user can see all requests that come and decide on calls:

When the call is made, we get:

“Call status” shows the progress of a connection. Then User A’s phone rings and User B’s phone rings. System connects them without showing their phone numbers. It is completely safe and secure. VoIP calls are great for your audience monetization.
