Do we hear $100? $100? We have $100. Do we hear $105? Ahh, the exciting sounds of an auction. If you’ve ever been to an auction before or been on eBay, you’re probably used to auctioning on things like baseball cards, electronics, or even some cool Halloween costume. But, have you ever thought about being able to auction on a date? Or even better, thought of auctioning off a date with you?! If we’ve piqued your interest, you should continue reading our What’s Your Price reviews.
In April of 2010, What’s Your Price was launched. What’s Your Price is an online dating auction website that has helped over 650,000 men and women to have an exciting and innovative dating experience. Here’s an infographic of how things work. (Don’t worry, we break this down in simpler terms below.
Here’s the premise. Women put a lot of work into getting ready for dates. They have to purchase makeup, nice clothes, get their hair done, keep things tight at the gym…they put a lot of time, money, and effort into looking good for the men. What’s Your Price feels that these ladies should be compensated for their efforts. This is where the auction side of things comes in. Men (and yes this can go in reverse) are able to send offers for first dates.
What’s an offer? An offer is the agreement to pay for the woman’s time on your date. Sound like an escort? While it’s similar, the owners of the site say it’s nowhere close. They say that it allows the men to get to the front of the line and let the women know they’re taking the date seriously. It allows them to prove their value and commitment from day one. In the old days, men would bring offerings to the father’s of women to try and get a date. What’s Your Price is just throwing it back to the old school.
If you’re intrigued and want to find out more, you have two options. Click our free trial button above and be whisked away to auction land or keep reading our What’s Your Price reviews to find out more about the site.
No subscription fee
Tons of attractive and high-quality singles
Fairly new concept to understand
The Sign Up Process
For Bidders (People who want to pay for the dates)
We can say confidently that we have not seen a faster sign-up process before in our entire careers of reviewing online dating sites. And no, we aren’t just saying that. You put in your name, gender, what you’re looking for, your email and your location and click join and then you’re immediately taken to your member dashboard and staring down a ton of match options. Here’s the page we were taken to on What’s Your Price within 30 seconds of starting the sign-up process. You will notice that the pictures are blurred out, but as you know, we always do that to protect the identities of those using these dating sites in case they don’t want that shared with the world. When you go to What’s Your Price, you’ll see everyone without the blur.
For Those Being Bid On (People who want to be paid for dates)
If you’re someone that is interested in being bid on, What’s Your Price does require that you fill out the basics of your profile before you start looking around. They will take you to the upload photo page, but you can click the main logo at the top of the page and bypass that for now if you’d like to. This realistically only took us about two minutes to fill out, but we put five minutes in case you’re a little slower filling out your basic information.
The one thing you will notice about the sign-up process is that you’ll need to complete three things before you can start making bids or accepting bids.
- Verify Your E-mail Address
- Complete Your Profile
- Load a Picture (and get it approved)
You have to complete these three things before they unleash you out into the world. You’ll notice in the last step that it says you have to upload a picture AND get it approved. What’s Your Price does this to cut down on fraud and fake accounts. It takes them usually less than 24 hours to confirm your photo, but during busier times it can take up to 48 hours. While we wish we could dive right in, it’s nice to know they’re looking out for fraud and policing the accounts.
You’ll see this until they approve it on the left-hand side of your profile.
In the meantime, you can start looking for members you like or are interested in and adding them to your favorites.
Are there good, quality matches on What’s Your Price?
Always the number one question when looking at a new online dating site is whether or not the singles on there are quality…as it should be. There’s no point in joining What’s Your Price or any dating site if they have garbage matches that aren’t worth your time.
Here’s what we found. For the fellas, there is no shortage of hot women on this site. We checked in a lot of different cities with our searches and let’s say the whole search was pretty easy on the eyes. From reading through some of the profiles, we did see that there were some women who looked to be money-hungry, but there were also a lot of women that seemed to be interested in potentially finding more than just a quick buck.
We expected this but we were pleased with the number of women that were looking for more than just a sugar daddy/baby relationship. There were plenty looking for dating and long-term as well. Regarding men ready to pay for dates, as you might expect there was no shortage. From talking with some of the girls that have used the site before we found that there is a healthy mix of quality on the site. Some of the men are great, successful men who are willing to put out a few bucks to get a first date with a pretty lady.
There were also reports of some guys looking to low-ball and offering like $5 for a date. While this isn’t an issue for the right guy, it goes against what the site is trying to accomplish. It’s hard to show you’re serious if you’re only willing to commit $5. That being said, there were plenty of men who understood the culture of the site and were willing to compensate accordingly.
Overall, we were pleased with the quality of matches and singles we saw during our What’s Your Price reviews. If you’re looking for a sugar daddy/baby type relationship or looking for something a little more, you’re going to be covered at What’s Your Price.
How easy is the site to use?
It’s a breath of fresh air when you can tell the designers of an online dating site understand that what they create is something that real people are going to have to use. We’ve stumbled across a lot of clunky and not user-friendly websites in our searches. What’s Your Price was thankfully not on that list.
You’ll notice that their top menu only has four options on it.
The magnifying glass is your search feature. The star is your favorites section. The little filing cabinet is where your date offers will be shown, and the message bubble is your message options. We LOVE the simplicity of the site and frankly are big fans of the fact that they aren’t inundating users with too many bells and whistles.
If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. 5 stars for What’s Your Price on the ease of use. Someone in their development department needs a high-five.
Are there any great features?
This was the toughest section of our reviews of What’s Your Price because we praised the fact that they weren’t overloading members with too many features. On that same token, that means that they don’t have a ton of features. The common ground we found was this. They don’t have any of the wild and out of this world crazy features that you may see on some sites. But!!! They have ALL the necessary features you need in a tight little package.
Here’s what the profiles on What’s Your Price look like.
You’ll see that some of the photos have a big lock on them. These are private photos that you can only see if you send an offer or wink at the person. It’s a little teaser from the site to try and entice you to make moves. You’ll notice on the right-hand side of the profile you’ll see the basic information. At the bottom, you’ll see what the person is interested in. There are six different options that you’ll see:
- Sugar Dating
- Discreet Affair
We actually expected everyone on the site to just check all the boxes, but we were pleasantly surprised to see that people only checked what they were interested in. The profiles that seemed a little money-hungry usually only had sugar dating checked. The more down to Earth profiles that were looking for a little more than just a transaction had the other options checked.
In the center of the page, you’ll see the sections where they tell you a little about themselves and what their ideal first date looks like. You’ll notice that unlike a lot of other online dating sites, they don’t have a million questions. These were the only two questions they had, and it was nice to see. This means it’s not going to take you nine years to finish filling out your profile and get to dating.
The one thing that we liked about the search function at What’s Your Price is they eliminated the “unnecessary clicks” that other dating sites sometimes make you do. Normally you have to click on the search button to go to the search page, select your options or select a saved search and then click to search. Only then will you see your options.
The thing is this. How often are your options you want going to change? Probably not that often. When you click the search icon, it automatically searches for your normal search. If you want to change anything, you can flick the filters button and get that all squared away. This set up is much better in our opinion. Here are the different search options that you have with What’s Your Price.
Tell me about the customer support.
The customer support at What’s Your Price is fairly standard. Fairly standard for us means good, not great, but sufficient. They have a nicely laid out FAQ section and a support ticket function. We really would like to see them add some way to get instant help like a live chat function or phone support. While a lot of online dating sites don’t have either, we think in this day and age we’re going to start viewing it as something necessary.
Overall, though, the support is more than sufficient. You shouldn’t really need immediate help with anything. It’s good to know their FAQ section is well thought out and planned out and that they have a support ticket system in place for you to use.
Price | How much does this What’s Your Price cost?
Most of you reading this What’s Your Price review probably skipped to this section, and we totally get that. With such a new concept like this, it can be confusing to understand how it all works. Let’s break it down for you.
First, there are no subscription fees. Joining the site is 100% free, and there is no monthly fee. If you’re interested in making date offers, though, you’ll need to purchase credits. When a date offer is accepted, you use some of your credits to unlock the ability to chat with your match. This is basically how the site gets paid. Hopefully, you weren’t expecting them to be running this site without any plans of making money.
Credits are bought in packs of three different amounts.
Whatsyourprice.com Membership Cost to Join
For those of you that purchase the 1,000 credit option, it comes with their Meet Beautiful People™ Guarantee. What is that? Glad you asked! It basically says that if you do a few things that show you’re trying and you don’t get at least 5 good dates, then they will give you another 1000 credits completely free.
Here’s what they ask of you. They ask that you have an actual profile with at least one picture visible. They ask that you try and initiate 20 first dates with an offer price between $50 and $200. And they ask that if someone accepts your offer that you unlock the chat within 48 hours. Basically, have a real profile, actually try and get dates, and if you do get some accepted, you actually try and move forward with them. It’s not a whole lot to ask and hopefully will not ever come into play because you’ll be getting lots of awesome dates.
If for some reason you brick out on your first 1000 credits, send an email to their support within seven days requesting your additional credits. There are a few more terms that you should look over if you are not having much luck.
Paying For the Dates
So, how does this part all work? You aren’t paying a membership fee, but you are bidding on dates. What happens when a date is accepted? Well, the money that you bid is NOT for being used on the date. That money goes to the girl you’re going on the date with. You are also expected to be the one picking up the tab for the date as well.
The transfer of money does not take place over the website but is done in person. What the site recommends is that you give half of the money up front and the second half on the back end when the date is over. This makes sure that you don’t get stiffed and that your date doesn’t just run away. Additionally, if a date or bidder does not live up to their bargain, you can report them to the site, and they will be instantly banned from the site. Most people aren’t going to want to end their time on What’s Your Price, so they’ll stick to the arrangement.
So, how much does a date usually cost? Well, from what we gather anywhere between $50 and $200 is normal. The average as said by the site themselves is usually around $120. We’ve also seen that if someone wants more for a date, they’re usually just about the money and might not be someone you should pursue unless that’s the sort of transaction you’re looking for.
Basically, you don’t have to pay for anything until you get ready to set up your first date. You’ll pay some credits to What’s Your Price, and then you’ll end up paying for whatever you agree upon with your date. If you’re someone being bid on, you’ll pay nada 🙂
