Doublelist Charging? Here’s the Truth
There’s been a lot of talk lately about DoubleList charging. We’ve heard lovers of online personal ads asking what it costs to use our service. More than that, they wonder if they have to kiss their free accounts goodbye. So what’s the reality?
Take a deep breath. We’re here to squash the rumors.
We’ve heard your chatter and we’re happy to report that DoubleList is still very free to use in most cases. Whether you’re a first-time visitor or an active member of our sex-positive community, you’ll find answers to your questions here.
True or False: DoubleList Charges Now
Let's tackle the question we know is on your mind: Is DoubleList charging users? The short answer is no. DoubleList will continue to be a free site for casual hookups, dating, adult classifieds, and more. You're not losing anything by having a free account. You will still have access to all the things we know you love.
Anyone can still make a free account. Plus, you'll have access to one of the best personals sites with an active community of same-minded people.
You can chat with other local singles or couples and dip your toes into any kink you want. You can experience anything from a casual encounter to a full-on relationship. On top of that, you have unlimited access to DoubleList’s blog for helpful dating, sex, and relationship articles.
After thousand of suggestions, comments and requests, we want you to know that we hear you loud and clear. We’ve introduced a more personal experience with additional features via optional paid subscriptions. Essentially, you'll gain perks and extras by signing up for a subscription.
This structure resembles most dating apps and sites' "freemium" pay model. Offering a paid subscription allows our development team to deliver highly requested features. Including gallery view, location filtering, premium search functions, and a new blog. Moving quickly down the pipeline is a full messaging platform. Get excited and keep an eye out for it. If you want to add premium features, you can buy a monthly or yearly subscription plan. We offer two different paid subscription tiers that we’ll take a deep dive into later. So in this way, yes, DoubleList charges now. But, DoubleList in its original form is still free to use as well.
DoubleList Charging: When Did DoubleList Start Charging?
DoubleList does not charge for the use of its services. It is still free to make an account and use the site. However, if you’re asking, “When did DoubleList start charging?” or wondering when we introduced subscriptions, there’s a different answer. This feature is relatively new as we began its rollout late 2022. The frequency of when you’ll receive a charge from DoubleList (if you’re a subscriber) depends on the plan you choose.
DoubleList Charging: Subscription Plans
Now that we’ve answered the “Is Doublelist charging?” question. Let’s discuss the details of our current subscription plans. Here are the list of options in order of price and features:
Tier 1: Free
Tier 2: Hookup
Tier 3: Hardcore
Next, we’re going to walk you through the differences and features of each level. Plus, we’ll pop in a few examples of who each plan might be best for. Of course, feel free to pick whichever floats your boat. These plans are subject to change, but the current descriptions are up to date as of June 2023.
DoubleList Charging Subscription Tier 1: Free
Let’s start with the OG: our free plan. Most of our user base knows this tier level. This is the basic, introductory level for a no-frills user experience. With this account, you can:
Post personals (also known as live posts)
Message other users/respond to ads
This subscription tier has a daily limit for live posts, message sends, and page views. Additionally, you will still see ads. We recommend this plan option for light users. This may be the right fit if you’re only interested in occasional daily browsing. Maybe you’re new to the world of online dating, and you want a small taste.
You’ll still be in the know on community events and lists. However, you won’t have unfettered access.
DoubleList Charging Subscription Tier 2: Hookup
The second level in the DoubleList charging system is the first paid option: The Hookup plan. We’d consider this our intermediate option for people maxing out their daily limits. With this option, you get the following features:
Ad-free site use
Access to filters for age and location
Six live posts at a time
30 messages send per day
250 page views per day
Curious if you should sign up for this level? Try it out if you’re more active on the DoubleList scene. If you’re making many connections or keeping up with several other users, the added messaging comes in handy.
You should also consider this tier if you want to have more posts live simultaneously. That way, you can have multiple ads for sensual scenarios and fantasies. If this sounds like you, the Hookup subscription plan is a necessary upgrade.
DoubleList Charging Subscription Tier 3: Hardcore
The top and final option in our new subscription model is the Hardcore tier. As the name implies, this level is for those devilish DoubleListers who can’t get enough. This is the ultimate option if you want a complete experience. Buying this plan gives you the following:
A completely ad-free experience
Access to filter posts by age and location
A premium badge so folks know you’re a top, active user
10 live posts at a time
Unlimited message sends
Unlimited views per day
Did you already try the hookup tier, and it didn’t quite satisfy your thirst? Then level up to Hardcore. Or, if you’re an avid online dater. This is for you if you like checking your posts often and regularly contacting other users.
DoubleList Charging Structure: Ways To Pay
Since you know your options in the DoubleList charging system, it’s time to talk about the actual cost. With either paid option available, there are two different ways to pay:
Each option has a slight price difference. This works like other subscription services, dating apps, subscription boxes, or streaming services.
Monthly DoubleList Charging Plan
If you choose the Hookup or Hardcore plan, you can pay monthly or yearly. If you go with the monthly plan for Hookup, DoubleList bills you $10 per month. If you choose the Hardcore tier on a monthly payment cycle, it’s $20.
You may prefer the monthly option if you’re not sure how long you want to use your paid subscription. Or, maybe you’re new to personals, and not sure if you like the process of writing a personal ad. Perhaps you’re easing yourself into casual encounters or other adult activities.
Another reason for choosing the monthly billing cycle is if you prefer to pay a little bit each month. That way, you can keep your monthly cost low instead of paying it all at once. Regardless of your reasoning, the monthly payment plan is a low-commitment way to try out DL.
Yearly DoubleList Charging Plan
If you prefer paying upfront, you’ll want to choose DoubleList charging you once per year. In this case, the Hookup plan is $45 per year, while the Hardcore option is $90 per year.
This is the most practical option if you’re a loyal DL user. You don’t have to worry about a payment not going through one month or recurring charges. Instead, you take care of a year of pleasure all at once.
We also encourage anyone who loves adult activities, dating, flings, relationships, etc., to go for a long-term plan. That way, you have a years-worth of fun already taken care of.
Whichever paid plan you opt into, both are low-pressure and affordable. Think about how much you spend on your Amazon Prime subscriptions or TV bill. For less than what three months of Netflix would cost you, you can enjoy wild and wonderful DoubleList dating.
DoubleList reviews show that our clients appreciate us keeping our service free or low-cost.
