Partner Matchmaker Agreement
Last Updated: as of March 9, 2021
Required Partner Matchmaker Information:
First name, last name, email address, phone number, and company name. Company URL is also required if you have a website.
Matchmakers pay per connection with each Member who confirms that they are in a non-exclusive relationship at the time of request and are interested in connecting with you. We do not share the company name ahead of time, but we may include whether your company generally shares photos both ways or not.
We do not guarantee that their status or interest will not change at any point, even immediately afterwards. If they do change their mind and do not respond to you or join your network, you may be eligible for a member credit.
We do not guarantee the accuracy of the information provided in a Member's account is it depends on what they entered. We do not conduct background checks, nor validate the information on a profile at the time of a connection request.
Connection requests go through DateSpot's team directly. You may click the "Request Connection" button on a Member's profile, or email Carla at firstname.lastname@example.org with the member numbers you wish for her to contact. There is no guarantee of a timeframe of contact, but she aims for within 24 hours from your request time.
Carla or one of her teammates may or may not follow up with the member if there is no response. It is a good idea to follow up with Carla about any members you have not heard back from so there can be a follow up to that member. If a member does not respond within one weeks of a second email attempt, it it safe to assume they are not interested or available, and no additional follow-up will be done.
All candidate requests are tracked on an individual Google spreadsheet. If you do not have access to this, please contact Carla.
A connection does not mean a date will occur. You pay for the lead, meaning they are joining your database for as long as you both like. However, if you want to make sure they are interested in a particular client of yours before paying for the Member, you can send your client's photos and/or profile to Carla for her to share with the member if they're single. If they want to meet your client, you pay extra for the connection; if they do not want to meet your client, you pay nothing and the introduction is not made.
Payments & Billing:
- Each connection with a member: $100 base fee
- If the DateSpot team identified the member for you: $100 extra
- If you want the member to first approve meeting your client, where DateSpot sends them your client's photos or profile ($0 if they do not want to meet): $100 extra
Member credit: free (see Refunds and Credits section below)
- Matching a DateSpot Premium member to one of your clients and DateSpot approves the match: free
- Matching a DateSpot Premium member to one of your clients and DateSpot does NOT approve the match: you can choose to pay for the lead as if they were a free route member
- If you want to secure the Premium member directly into your database and not have the match go through DateSpot: $600 (what the client would pay for a match normally)
Payment is due before a connection is made. Accepted payment methods are:
- Venmo to @DateSpot
- Zelle to email@example.com (preferred method)
- Credit card at https://payments.datespot.love/matchmaker-leads-checkout
Canceling Your Account:
Since the program is pay-per-lead, there is no need to cancel your account if you do not wish to pay for matches or services. However, should you not want to be in our system anymore, have access to the database, be mentioned as a partner matchmaker, or otherwise be associated with DateSpot, you may email firstname.lastname@example.org at any time.
Our Partner Matchmakers agree to be reviewed by DateSpot in writing, on the DateSpot Website or not, as well as verbally to potential matchmaking clients. These reviews are heavily weighted towards member ratings after a connection is made, and may also include ratings by third party review sites. You may not alter or request to change your rating. You also are not permitted to instruct or ask a member to give you a positive or certain rating. However, if you are unsatisfied with your public rating, and do not want to wait to organically influence it, you can request to be temporarily or permanently removed from the rating section of the DateSpot Website.
Free Platform for Members:
DateSpot provides a platform that is free for single members, which is part of the appeal to singles.
- You agree not to charge a fee to any Member whom you contact through DateSpot who you are connecting with one of your clients, even if charging everyone is your standard business practice. If you do not comply with this procedure, you risk immediate cancellation of your account.
- Partner Matchmakers agree not to solicit a member to become a paying client within 6 months of a connection, unless the member has expressed interest in talking with a Matchmaker about becoming a client through the DateSpot website. After 6 months, a Partner Matchmaker may use their discretion in pitching and discussing the client route.
- If a member referred to you by DateSpot ends up becoming a client of yours, you agree to alert us and identify that Member. This assists with our success monitoring.
Referrals & Commission Share:
We enjoy paying you a financial bonus for any referrals you send to DateSpot. It does not matter whether they have joined the free or Premium routes - they are equally eligible for the same match commission.
However, if someone joins Premium, they would need to book a $185 consultation call, which results in a $20 bonus for you. And if we decide to work with the client and vice versa, they pay a $499 setup fee, and $100 bonus goes to you.
You will receive $100 for each qualifying person you refer to DateSpot who matches with another DateSpot member (leads to a connection). Qualifying means they have completed at least the Basics section, added at least one photo of themself, and are not deemed to be a suspicious/fake account.
You can view your referrals when you log into your account, under the Referrals tab.
This payment applies to any match, including any subsequent matches with the same member.
You also receive commission every time someone you referred to us pays for a partner service when we refer them to matchmaking through our partners (for more dedicated service), a photo shoot, relationship advising, or personal styling / image consulting. We generally receive 20% commission of our partner services we refer to. In turn, we share 20% of that DateSpot commission with you. As of June 6, 2023, this equates to your commission at:
- Matchmaking companies: varies based on what they offer and sell
- Photo shoot: $20
- Relationship advising: $50
- Personal styling: varies based on what they offer & sell
Thank you for any referrals!
Refunds and Credits:
We do our best to ensure that our members are available and interested by sending them an email when you request to contact a member, and only passing them along to you when they say "yes". We also take it on faith that their provided information and status is factual. However, we cannot guarantee that a Member's information is accurate, up-to-date, or that they follow through with meeting or speaking with you or a client, or that they follow any other procedures.
Connections do not require a member to join your database or match with your client, even if we shared a profile of a specific client that they previously agreed to meet. The commitment is to have a call (phone or video based on your preference) with you and explore the possibilities. However, if a member does not book a call within 2 weeks of your request, please let us know and we will first nudge the member. If they still do not book a call with you within one week, you may request a credit for another member of your choice. If you believe you deserve a member credit, email us at email@example.com with the person's name and the communication you had with them.
We do not offer refunds.
If the original member ends up joining at any point, please notify Carla, and you will then owe one connection fee.
We cannot guarantee a credit, but we strive to be fair and keep our Partner Matchmakers happy.
In the event that your database has a data breach, you are required to notify DateSpot, as it may affect our members. We have authority to alert affected and potentially affected members.
