Tinder, the dating app that got its most notable press around Winter Olympic time, is set to explode around the 1 billion dollar mark at the end of 2015. With over 1 billion “swipes” per day, Tinder is the leading hook-up and dating app on the market. While these numbers are promising for Tinder, they are also promising to the entire online dating market.
Online dating is not new; in fact, as long as the internet has been public, there have been forms of dating websites, from online chatting and messaging to Skyping websites. It has always been a lucrative field to invest in, but the recent surge in its app popularity has really made it simple to invest in. Apps require little investment, aside from someone to create the app for you, and the knowledge to keep it monitored and secure. Though lucrative and a reasonably fun field to enter into, it can be hard to find a payment processing source. This is because online dating websites and apps are notorious for having fraudulent activity. This fraudulent activity can cause a $9.99 monthly fee to quickly become a $90 fee that you, the merchant. One too many fraudulent charges can cause a bank or traditional merchant account processor to drop your merchant account like a hot potato. While this seems like a bad thing – and it is – there is a solution.
