AfroIntroductions Follows Cupid Media’s Standard Pricing

AfroIntroductions Landing page

Afrointroductions is a dating site bringing together singles from across the world with a predominant focus on African countries. Often, though, international dating sites can be fairly expensive due to the cross-border data requirements and the need to market in multiple countries. Thankfully, this doesn’t seem to be the case with Cupid Network’s AfroIntroductions. Here are the updated prices for each of the premium membership options available at the site.

Membership TypeMembership LengthMonthly Cost
Gold12 Months$11.25
Gold3 Months$22.67
Gold1 Month$34.00
Gold1 Week$68.00*
Platinum12 Months$14.17

Diamond1 Week$160.00*

*At the time of writing the “1 week” membership options have been removed. That said, we expect that they may come back in the future, so we have decided to leave them represented on our AfroIntroductions cost table for user reference.

AfroIntroductions has 3 plans with 4 duration options

AfroIntroductions premium membership plans range from around $11 a month to as high as $70 a month. Users can choose between three membership levels—Gold, Platinum, and Diamond, as well as four different term lengths with each plan—1 week, 1 month, 3 months, and 1 year. The monthly price you’ll pay is dependent on which tier you choose and which term length you select.

With each of the three membership plans, you’ll get access to messaging, live chat, the ability to communicate with all members, and no third-party ads. When you move up to the Platinum plan, you’ll start to get access to features that give you an advantage over other members including your profile ranking higher, more space on your profile to showcase who you are, and the ability to auto-translate your messages if you’re dating across country lines.

The Diamond plan (highest plan available at AfroIntroductions) is quite similar to the Platinum plan except you now rank ahead of all members on the site in searches as well as having your messages show at the top to help you get more responses. Depending on what country you’re looking in or what age group you’re searching for, this upgrade may be more or less valuable.

What is a bit odd is that the company lists the option to purchase weekly memberships (renews every 7 days) at some pretty astronomically high prices. We think this may be so they can advertise savings over that plan and is not designed as anything someone would actually purchase. Unless you have some very unique use case where you only need a week of service, we’d recommend purchasing one month at the minimum.

Payment Options at AfroIntroductions

As AfroIntroductions serves customers in a lot of different countries, you’ll find quite a few options for purchasing a membership. These payment options include most major credit and debit cards from Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover Card, and Diners Club International. Additionally, you’ll have the ability to pay for your membership through Google Play Store, Apple Store, the PaySafe card, a bank wire transfer, or through Skrill.

Bear in mind that not all options are available in every country. You’ll need to contact customer support or check the payment page of your account to see what options are available to you.

Reviewing the company’s terms of use we found something interesting about the use of coins for a la carte purchases within the app (Screenshot of section 2.8 below):

However reviewing the packages available for purchase within the app we were unable to find anything about coins or what they cost. Instead we only saw options for Gold, Platinum, and Diamond pricing as is detailed in the table above.

Like other Cupid Media brands, AforIntroductions changes their pricing structure extremely often and since the company’s terms of use haven’t been updated since October of 2023, we’re assuming that this was just another oversight. Like Weekly subscriptions AfroIntroduction coins seem to be a thing of the past (for now…).

With many online dating apps the answer to this would be “no”, however AfroIntroductions has a bit more nuanced refund policy based around customer satisfaction. Specifically if you….

  • Are experiencing technical problems with the app
  • The AfroIntroductions site has been down for “an unacceptable time period”
  • Or if you request a refund before starting or receiving contact with any members

… then you are entitled to a full refund. The terms of the refund policy also allow users to contact the AfroIntroductions team if you feel like there is another valid reason for your money to be refunded. Please note this is not a guarantee that the cost of your AfroIntroductions membership will be refunded. You should also know that the company is very clear they do not award partial refunds (See screenshot below):
