Imaginary Friends All Grown Up: New Adult Dating Service Hits Market

Feb 12, 2015

For just $25 dollars a month now you too can have an imaginary girlfriend. Sure, it may be more expensive than the ‘free’ one you may (or may not) have had as a kid but it also may be cheaper than the real deal. This new adult dating service, spotted by the team eMerchantBroker, from is sure to draw the interest of businesses with adult dating merchant accounts all around the web.

The $25 dollar subscription gets a client an imaginary girlfriend or boyfriend with 100 text messages, 10 voice mails, and one postcard per month. However, your digital partner isn’t a machine spitting back answers based on a labyrinth-like script. The text messages are sent by real people, responding in real time. The interaction is still on the human-to-human level yet exclusively through the digital medium.

A new subscriber is able to customize the age, location, dating profile, and even a background story with about how they met. The hook, which is what those merchants in the adult dating market are interested in, is the multi-faceted stress relief offered by the service. Yet, the experience still maintains that human element as your digital partner’s responses are coming from an actual person. Also, by creating a digital partner, an individual can alleviate family pressure, prevent ubiquitous blind dates, and even have the occasional stress-release text rant after a bad day at work. Professionals who don’t have the time, inclination, or drive for a relationship will certainly find this service attractive.

Any online business with an active adult dating merchant account at eMerchantBroker can potentially expand on this new foray into the possibilities of digital dating. The business model is straight-forward and easy-to-emulate, not to mention being out-source friendly to an English-savvy group of writers. It also holds synergy potential to combine well with other adult dating services and content found online. The more digitally ‘real’ an imaginary partner is, the greater opportunity to increase your dating service revenue.

Having a merchant account allows an account holder to take advantage of merchant cash advances. When a merchant is approved for an advance, the business agrees to receive a lump sum of cash in exchange for an agreed-upon percentage of future credit card sales.

Pricing varies depending on the merchant’s industry, past credit card processing history, the type of business seeking the account, average ticket sales, and average transaction volumes.

Yes, EMB works with merchants who are building their credit, as well as those who have poor credit. EMB also approves merchants that have no credit card processing history and businesses that have lost their merchant accounts due to high chargebacks.

Several factors influence a merchant’s risk level. Though only one factor likely will not get a merchant classified as high risk, a combination of these may: business size, location, and industry, credit score, credit card processing history, a industry’s reputation for excessive chargebacks, a prior history of high chargeback ratios, and whether a merchant exclusively sells online.

Virtual terminals are stationed on a merchant’s website, making it easy for customers to make a payment or purchase online. Merchants or a payment processor can easily set up virtual terminals, so online businesses can accept credit and debit card and e-check transactions.

A merchant account is a business account with an acquiring bank. Without this business account, which actually works more like a line of credit, a merchant cannot accept and process credit and debit card transactions. Businesses need a merchant account to accept major credit cards via a static point-of-sale terminal, mobile card reader, or through a virtual payment gateway.

After filling out EMB’s simple online application and submitting any necessary, requested documents, many merchants get approved within 24 and 48 hours.
