How can you convert virtual dating to real life money-making?

We developed a two-sided marketplace model, for a dating app that led people to book a date at a participating venue. It features:

  • Cloud-based marketplace allows participating venues primarily in the hospitality industry to sign up, link their bank account directly via Stripe Connect
  • Set their availability and costs up through a venue-facing dashboard
  • When a date is booked at a participating venue, the venue instantly receives the deposit that the user has paid, directly via Stripe Connect, less the Application Fee
  • The marketplace fee is calculated dynamically based on the type of venue and the fee is charged instantly to through Stripe Connect integration.
