Tinder Plus vs Tinder Gold vs Tinder Platinum: What’s the difference?

Launched in 2012, Tinder is now one of the most popular dating apps, which has been downloaded over 340 million times and has over 6.2 million paying subscribers who are signed up to one of the three paid subscriptions — Tinder Plus, Gold and Platinum.

While Tinder Plus and Tinder Gold subscriptions are offered in all the 190 countries where the app is available, the company is testing Tinder Platinum subscription in select markets. Although the Platinum subscription isn’t available to most of the users worldwide, we’ve included it in the comparison to give you an idea of what might also be coming your way if Tinder expands its Platinum offering in more markets.

If the free Tinder subscription isn’t working for you and you want access to more premium features such as unlimited likes, rewind, see who likes you, more super likes, profile boost, global swiping access, top picks, ad-free experience among several others that are added with updates to the app, read on to learn what’s the difference between Tinder Plus, Tinder Gold and Tinder Platinum and if it’s worth your money to invest in any of these or the free version is good enough for you.

Here we’ve compared the three Tinder paid subscriptions on ten parameters, which are the premium features offered with them.

See who likes you

  • Tinder Plus: Not available.
  • Tinder Gold: As soon as someone likes you on Tinder (swipes right on your profile), you’ll get a notification and will be able to see their profile and like them back or not.
  • Tinder Platinum: Same as Tinder Gold.


Using Tinder’s Boost feature will make your profile one of the top ones in the area, which means it will be more discoverable and your chances of getting a match will also increase with an estimated ten-fold increase in profile views.

  • Tinder Gold: Available.

Super Likes

Super Likes are the blue star icon that you see at the bottom of a profile. If you super like a profile on Tinder, your profile will appear in their cardstack with a bright blue border and also a star and the other person will also be notified that they’re received a super likes. This makes the chances of your profile being seen by someone you liked more.

Unlimited Likes

Tinder Plus allows you to swipe right unlimited times, unlike the free account where you’ve limited likes per day.

  • Tinder Plus: Available.
  • Tinder Gold: Available.
  • Tinder Platinum: Available. The additional bonus of having a Platinum subscription is that your profile’s likes will be prioritised over anyone who is not a Platinum member. This means if you’ve swiped someone right (liked them, basically) your profile will appear before anyone else who has swiped right but doesn’t have a Tinder Platinum subscription.


All the three paid Tinder subscriptions offer an ad-free experience.

Is getting a paid Tinder subscription worth your money?

Well, that really depends on how much the premium features that we’ve discussed above struck your fancy and if you want to try and see if your luck changes with a more powerful Tinder.

All the three premium subscriptions offered by Tinder are considerably different in price (varying on your country) but so are some of the features these subscriptions offer — giving you an edge over anyone who lacks a premium membership, or even your tier of membership.

If you think the additional features offered by any of Tinder’s paid subscriptions benefits you, give it a try and see if it helps up your game.
