Setting Up a Successful Adult Dating Website

Apr 29, 2014


With more people choosing to search online for their one true love or whether they would just like to have a reason to get out of the house more and meet new people, starting up an adult dating website is a great way to help them and make a considerable profit doing so.

But what does it take to create an adult dating website? What goes into it? Well, first you must do your research and find a company that provides free web hosting. When picking this service you will want to check how much bandwidth is included so do keep that in mind. Once you have chosen your website host you will want to play around on their site and get familiar with the setup and any restrictions that you will have on the site.

Now that you have chosen your website host you are ready to choose what your focus for your adult website will be. This focus can be either on dating advice or if you want to provide service for one certain location or hobby.

After you have determined what your focus is going to be, you’re ready to start planning your icon or what your marketing gimmick is. It is important to keep this aspect fun and if you are not very talented when it comes to things in the art department you can take the simpler route and stick to a basic shape and color combination.

Once you have decided what your marketing strategy is you’re ready to start your business plan about how you’re going to actually make money from your adult dating website. One thing you can do is use Google AdWords. You will also need to set up an adult website merchant account in order to process credit cards through the website. Even if you plan to accept PayPal it is best to have an adult merchant account because not everyone uses PayPal. Having a merchant account can help you keep up with the money coming in. This step is very important before launching your website.

Lastly, you will want to set up a questionnaire for using the database on your new adult dating website. When adult set up their account they can fill their questionnaire out in order to plug it into the database and find potential matches for them. Once they have made a payment to your website you can then have their matches emailed to them so they can start using your service.

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.
