We are back to the topic of monetization and profits for your dating website. It’s very important that your online business earns money over time. Even if you started as completely free dating service, you will probably drift toward “freemium” or “membership” models. Both of them can include services to monetize your members.

In our previous articles on this topic (part 1 and part 2) we have discussed calls, gifts, profile lift-up, photo carousel as sources of revenue. This time let’s look into one more option – E-cards. Dating Pro website software has this module in-built which means no extra programming on your side to launch it.

E-cards

These are virtual cards that your members can send each other any time. You can make them paid or free in administration panel. To do that, please go to: Administration panel>E-cards


In section Administration panel>E-cards>Catalog you can add/delete/edit the e-cards you have.

Press “Make paid” button to monetize this tool:

and specify the price in the pop-up window.

The E-cards catalogue consists of Categories > Subcategories > E-cards. When you edit any card data, you can deactivate it or change the price:

Track orders: Administration panel>E-cards>Orders

Music for E-cards: you can add music option for E-cards. Just upload some tunes at Administration panel>E-cards>Songs
