Match cost and subscription prices 2024

By Alexandre (admin), last updated on September 14, 2023

If the registration to the online dating site Match is free, it is preferable to subscribe to a membership to benefit from all the features. Stop searching, all you need to know is here : see below all Match costs information for a relationship with premium members.

Match Cost 2024 – up to date subscription pricing

Match Premium Plan subscription

The premium subscription is more expensive than the standard one, but gives access to Zen and Boost functionalities. It starts at $20.99/month.

By choosing the Standard subscription, the price is low, even below the average for dating sites. The 6-month offer is clearly the most attractive. The premium subscription is more expensive, so not everyone will be able to afford it. But if you can afford it, choose it because you’ll have access to Zen and Boost modes, which will give you an undeniable advantage over other members.

Let there be no misunderstanding, the 3 months, 6 months and 12 months subscriptions are billed at once. As you can see on the caption below, there are two plans available : premium, the most expensive, and standard, the less expensive. Both have pros and cons.

From time to time Match offers promotions to his online dating service, with 30% off all subscriptions. You need to keep an eye on your email or log on to the site regularly to access these one-off promotions.

Be assured, the payment of a subscription is secure and is done by credit card. It’s possible on the website and the app.

It’s also worth noting that Match is less expensive than other dating sites for serious relationships, such as eharmony. That’s why Match is so popular.

Which subscription to choose

Most people take the standard 6-month subscription for $9.99 a month. And this is also the one we recommend because it’s the best time/price ratio, giving you plenty of time to meet new people.

In fact, it’s estimated that, on most dating platforms for serious relationships, it takes at least 3 months to meet enough people and finally find the right person. A 3-month subscription may be enough if you’re sure of yourself. If, on the other hand, you’re just starting out, a 6-month subscription is highly recommended.

The 12-month subscription, although the most attractive financially, is in our opinion far too long. Normally, on a site whose aim is to find love, it doesn’t take that long to meet the right person. Or maybe the problem lies elsewhere…

Match features with subscription

Subscribing is above all about accessing the essential functionality: being able to send and receive messages from single male and female members. But a subscription also gives you access to other features that are just as interesting.

With a Match subscription, you have all options included :

  • Fee based Services (premium)
  • Receive and replay messages from other users
  • Send messages to both paid and free users
  • Receive notification when your messages are seen by the recipient
  • Meet singles IRL with match events

With premium plan subscription you have access to Zen Mode an Boost Mode.

Zen Mode option
Zen Mode means that only profiles that match your chosen criteria can contact you. It’s particularly useful for women. Women can receive more messages than men. If you have a good, attractive profile, you could receive several dozen messages a day from other members. This Zen mode allows you to filter your messages so that you only receive messages from men who are interesting to you.

Match boost
You can increase how easy it is for your profile to be viewed in the hopes of increasing your matches. Here, this feature is more for men. Your profile will be more prominently displayed in search results, on the site’s home page and elsewhere. This means more visits to your profile and, if it’s attractive, more messages.

Price difference between men and women?

Some dating sites offer preferential rates for women, or even offer all features free of charge to women, in order to achieve a better male/female ratio on their platform.

If for years Match favored the rates of its subscriptions to the advantage of women, this in order to promote the parity man / woman in its website, it is no longer the case.

Mentalities have now evolved and Match has understood this. The subscription price for boys and girls is the same price! On a paid site, users are generally looking for long-term relationships. This is valid for both men and women.

Match for over 50

Match recognizes that seniors have different needs than other generations. To accommodate these preferences, the company has set up a dating community specifically for those over 50 years of age. If you’re over 50, choose OurTime, which belongs to the Match group, or SilverSingles, for high-end dating.

You can still use Match if you’re over 50. Just be aware that it’s not a seniors-only site, but it can be useful if you’re just 50 and want to meet singles over 40, for example.

The cost of Match will be the same whatever your age.

What about the Match Free subscription?

There is currently no free Match subscription. Also, the Match 3 days free offer does not exist anymore.

Indeed, to test the seriousness of its dating site, Match offered to test its site for free for 3 days without commitment.

To find out more, go to our Match Free Trial page.

Is it easy to stop the subscription?

Have you found love on this site, or are you not satisfied? Whatever the reason, you should know that it’s easy to unsubscribe.

First of all, we’ll say it again: even if you stop your subscription, all months are still due. For example, if you have a 6-month subscription and stop after 3 months, the remaining months will not be reimbursed.

To stop your subscription, go to your Match account settings. Select Manage subscription. Enter your password and click on Cancel subscription. The site will ask you a few questions about the reasons for this choice. Click Continue to cancel. You are now unsubscribed.

    Hello Candie, do you mean that you had chosen a standard plan and that it is a premium plan that has been applied? Otherwise the good reflex is as soon as you have taken a subscription is to immediately deactivate the automatic renewal in your account. There is nothing dangerous but yes you should know that automatic renewal is a common practice and that all minus are taken at once and this is valid in all online dating platforms.

    This company signed me up for premium when I did not want premium. It also had me for auto renewal and 6 months instead of 3 months.

    Signing up for these rip off companies is dangerous. Once they get your credit card information they do whatever they want to do with it.

    Match is full of s—! They offer you a teaser fee, and when you look into it, the fee is up by $10.00 or so! A few years ago it only costs $35.00 for one month. Now it’s $50.00, just to get men that write seemingly identical profiles!!! Match, can you help these fellas be more creative in their profile?
    I’m already DISAPPOINTED ):

    I took a standard plan for $9.99/month. I dont need premium add-on like unlimited rewinds, monthly boost. I want to try Match with basics to begin.

    I have joined Match several times over the years and yes it’s better than most sites because you have to pay BUT like all dating apps very few people talk or who you like doesn’t like you and vice versa. There are way too many options with on line dating. Nothing like meeting in people organically, unfortunately, that’s a thing of the past or you just get lucky and it happens for you.

    Hi Laura, eharmony is more expensive than match because the first one purpose a matchmaking system with a “scientific approach”. You can try for free both dating websites : match and eharmony and you will see which is the best for you before taking a paid membership.
