Tinder, marketed as a free 'dating' app, is no stranger to paid features. The company has long allowed users to step up their game by spending money on their 'Tinder Plus' service. Tinder would like more of your money, it seems, as it rolls out a new paid service with a highly-desirable premium feature — the ability to see who has swiped right on your profile, without having to match.
Tinder's new service, dubbed Tinder Gold, will allow users more control over their Tinder experience. While those who don't pay have to match with another user before gaining these valuable insights, Tinder Gold memebers already know who's interested.
Tinder Gold also comes with the other coveted Tinder-paid services — Passport, Rewind, Unlimited Likes, five Super Likes per day, one Boost per month. Those who rely on these features already, or are interested in paying for them, would probably be attracted to Tinder's newest offerings.
But, if you're in the US, you're going to have to wait. Tinder Gold will be tested in Argentina, Australia, Canada and Mexico in the next few days, with the promises of rolling out the feature to all users soon.
Sorry, American-dreamers. You'll just have to settle for matching for now. Or, you know, you can use IAC's other dating service, OK Cupid, which offers the same service as Tinder Gold for a monthly premium.
