Your dating website may have all the features in the world, but the mainstream recognition of online dating comes from one seemingly simple action – swiping left, up or right. It’s possible you’ve never used Tinder in your life, but you do know how it works, right? That’s how important that swiping feature is.
Oxwall Profile Discovery Game allows members to play profile discovery games, and it works and feels right – just like in Tinder and other popular dating apps. The game displays profile pictures on a widget or page were members can indicate their interest in a person by swiping left for Nope, right for Like and up for Super Like.
This is a fun way to connect your website users with people that interests them and also increase users engagement on your website.
The plugin is available for both mobile and desktop version and can be download directly from the Oxwall store or see demo here.
Profile Discover Game Plugin – Bring Tinder Swiping to Oxwall & Skadate
Profile Discover Game plugin is a Tinder-like cards swiping Skadate-compatible Oxwall plugin that allows members to swipe and match with other other members on your website.
Members on your website can demonstrate interest in another member by swiping left (Nope), right (Like) or up (Super Like). Swiping a profile up will immediately notify the user about the member’s interest in them. If a person likes (swipe right or up) another member who has liked them before, it’s a match! Chat dialog is created and both users are notified about the match.
Swiping a profile up (Super Like) will immediately notify the user about the member’s interest in them.
The plugin find matches for a user using their profile info. You can as well choose to allow users to filter their matches based on gender. Furthermore, the admin settings allow administrator to configure profile info to use in the match algorithm.
You can monetize the Profile Discovery Game plugin by making the game a premium feature on Skadate or allowing only premium members the ability to give super like.
