Anyone who just landed at AmateurMatch.com for the first time might wonder if it’s a dating site, a cam site, or a pron site. It seems that they have all these three, making it a huge place to visit. If it’s a good or a bad thing, that’s for you to decide. Meanwhile here is our full review of AmateurMatch.com.
- Accepts free standard members
- Free members can read emails but limited to respond
- Good search feature
- Upgrade is at $23.95 per month
- Too much advertisement
- Use of fake profiles
- Thousands of online members at any given time
- Webcam chat and Instant Messaging is for paying members only
AmateurMatch.com is a leading website owned by the same company who runs WebCamClub.com, UnTrue.com, XXXDating.com, and SpiceorNice.com. It offers a place for singles and swingers to find a sex partner.
An interested user can sign up as a free or standard member without giving away any credit card details. After filling up a quick sign up form, and verifying their email address, his/her basic profile page is up and running. A free member can upload up to 5 images or pictures.
We have set up a free account to test the site and used the same to aid in this review. The image you see in this post is capture showing how it looks inside a member’s page when looking up for online users.
As a free member you can read your emails. You are also free to respond and make initial contact. But to do more than that, you will have to be a paying member.
In our first 24 hours of stay we got five profile views and five messages. Please take note that our profile completeness is just 13% with no image uploaded. This is why we were not surprised to see that all those five ladies who messaged us were Online Cupids. (Read more about Online Cupids, OC’s below).
This is one impressive feature of AmateurMatch.com. At a single click a user can pull up or search for “Newest Members” and do the same for “Hottest Members”. Basic search is where you can do a more defined search. These features are available to basic members.
Advanced search however can only be performed by members who have upgraded their account. Advanced search feature will allow you to pull up members with the following interests:
- Erotic Email or Cyber Sex
- Erotic Photo Exchange
- Just Naughty Fun!
- Discreet Relationship or Casual Sex
- 1-on-1 Sex
- Group Sex (3 or more)
- Bondage & Spanking
- Sadism & Masochism
- Other Sexual Activities
You can also further refine your search to members belonging to these ethnicities:
- Black/African Descent
- East Indian
- Middle Eastern
- Native American
- Western European
IM chat refers to the feature facilitating real-time chat or communications with other members of your interest. It’s a nice feature that makes a site impressive. AmateurMatch.com offers video and audio chat between paying members.
Every now and then we would receive a pop up message saying that a member wants to chat. Only to find out that it’s one of their tricks to encourage free members to upgrade their account. Webcam chat and 1-on1 chat is only available to paying members.
Web Cam Shows
AmateurMatch.com offers nude webcam shows using models broadcasting from their homes or studios. To view these private shows you will need to buy credits. One credit equals one dollar, these shows will have a varied per minute charge. So you have to be careful when entering these rooms, once you get distracted by a steaming hot model time quickly passes. Before you know it, you have already spent all your credits.
Cost to Upgrade
There are only two types of membership levels on AmateurMatch.com. These are standard or free members and GOLD or paying members. To upgrade your standard account to gold account you will have to spend at least $69.95 for three months subscription.
A member can pay online via debit or credit card, they are accepting Visa and MasterCard as payment methods. They will bill or charge your card using a third-party biller or vendor. International members can opt to send money orders or checks to upgrade their accounts.
These makes the difference between standard member and gold member accounts:
- View all Profiles and Photos
- Send/Receive Unlimited Messages
- Send Instant Messages
- Full Access to Live Video Chat
- Create Private 1-on-1 Chats
- Unlimited Buddy Invites/Requests
- Be Featured on All Search Results
- View Public and Private Galleries
- Watch LIVE Featured Performers
- Full Access to VIP Videos
- Play Hot Adult Games
- Expedited Customer Support
This is one major issue that we have with AmateurMatch.com. There are just too many advertisements on the site. The left sidebar of members account page will show at least three graphical ads leading to other websites.
This is very confusing, but at least they are honest to put the word “Advertisements” on top of each ads. Frankly we’re not sure if these ads will still show on Gold Members account page. Hopefully they would disallow these ads on them since they have already spent dollars upgrading their membership.
OC’s and Fake Profiles
Again AmateurMatch.com is not free from fake profiles or members. Every adult dating sites that we know have them. Looking at the member’s profile picture you will notice the difference between images that are professionally done compared to candid images that normal people have. So just be vigilant.
OC’s or Online Cupids are also fake profiles created by people working for AmateurMatch.com. According to their FAQ’s they are created to help members initiate contact and be active on the site. They also watch for spamming members. And perhaps trick you to buy a subscription. You will see the yellow OC sign on the upper right side of the user’s profile.
Thousands of online users
AmateurMatch.com has been on adult dating service for so many years. It’s not a surprise to know that they already have accumulated millions of members and thousands of active users. While testing the site we can’t help but notice that they have more than 10,000’s online members at any given time.
As to our local search we also have a considerable number of online or active members on our chosen area and within a 50 mile radius. Searching for casual sex online is always a numbers game. The more real people you interact with the higher your chances to find what you’re looking for.
