Should You Pay For Tinder? Is Tinder Free? Is It Worth Paying For Tinder? Discounts, Trials

Tinder is an app used to connect people. It’s not necessarily for dating, hookups but also tour guides, penpals, friends, networking and occasionally scams (see Tinder Swindler on Netflix). Their tagline is, “Tinder | Dating, Make Friends & Meet New People.”

On the site it claims, “It’s been downloaded more than 340 million times and is available in 190 countries and 40+ languages.”

If you learn to analyze the language, it doesn’t reveal user counts. I have a dummy account that I use for clients and research and I have downloaded the app dozens of times over the years. People regularly download the app, re-install it, take breaks or try to reset their accounts which might boost these numbers artificially.

Do You Need To Pay Tinder To Get Likes, Matches? Is It Worth Paying For Tinder?

No, absolutely not. First off, it also helps to be self-aware, be patient and ask questions. Rather than take the plunge, I urge all folks to invest in their photos (order, quality, lighting, variety), profiles (bios, questions, answers, completeness) and app choice.

There is plenty of self-sabotage on dating apps that it doesn’t make sense to pay for premium marketing features when the core product (you) can use some help. It will take time, patience but at least you will get better quality likes by investing in yourself rather than paying for likes, matches from people far away, likely not interested in you and will likely never meet.

Sure, one might get more likes but will likely come from users who accidentally clicked like, come from new users (like bots, spammers that haven’t been banned) or users outside a preferred radius.

Tinder Plus, Gold & Premium Subscriptions: Does Tinder Charge Monthly Or All At Once? 

Tinder offers various subscriptions levels with many bells and whistles. Prices are broken down at monthly prices (for comparative purposes) but are charged based on level and commitment.

Billing is recurring and requires you to cancel the payment via the method you signed up i.e. Google Play, etc. Deleting the app does nothing to your account – you still have to pay.

Tinder Passport Still Free? Tinder Global vs Tinder Passport; Tinder Gold Review

Tinder allows users to change their location using Tinder Passport which is a feature on Tinder Plus, Gold and Platinum. It’s mostly used for hookups when traveling, those seeking tour guides and narcissists looking for attention, IG followers or subscribers to OnlyFans. Tinder Global was briefly made free during covid but not anymore.

Tinder Super Likes – What Are Tinder Superlikes? Do They Work? Are Superlikes Cringy?

It’s an inflated and meaningless way to suggest users are more interested in you that a regular like. They rarely work and are cringy. More info here.


Does Paying For Tinder Get You More Likes, Matches? Is Tinder Gold Worth It?

Paying for Tinder will get you more likes and more matches but it’s likely from people who are far away, outside your league (influencers, narcissists) and those that will never reply to messages and never meet up with you. Before thinking about paying for Tinder, make sure your profile is great. 

Paying for apps doesn’t make you more attractive, interesting. It usually helps those manage likes, matches more effectively if they are attractive and in-demand. Tinder Boosts show you to more people and while that might result in more likes, matches, those aren’t necessarily quality profiles, peoples. Many of those likes will come from fake profiles and spammers. More info here.
