To register for an account is simple but you must sign up using the app. You will also need to have a Facebook account to create a WooPlus account. This site was built as an app and while there is a desktop site, it is just a holding page that sends you to the app. Member registration is simple and you are required to just enter a few fields in order to sign up and create an account. Once you are registered, you can then move on to creating your dating profile.
The creation of your dating profile is simple. Once you have signed up, you will be asked a series of questions. You will then be asked to confirm your body type and given a list of options to choose from. The answers include average, chubby and athletic. After body type comes body shape and the site wants to know what your shape is. There are some quirky answers including inverted triangle, rectangle / banana, rounded / apple and more. The interests you select are taken from your Facebook profile. You can add additional information including religion, height and income but these are optional and not compulsory. It is important to include some good images as the site is very much based on the swipe left and right that you will find with popular dating site, Tinder.
A lot of the site functionality is free such as sending messages, uploading pictures, commenting, poking etc. There are pricing plans which give the user additional benefits though. These include location search filters, seeing when someone has responded to your message and unlimited match proposals. There are two main levels of membership – £4.99 for the Basic coins for 1 month to allow you to send virtual gifts and then £10.99 for the VIP membership. The more months you subscribe to a VIP membership for, the bigger discount you will get on those rates. The premiums are due as one lump sum and not taken on a monthly basis and your subscription will be set to auto renew.
If you are familiar with Tinder then you will know how to use WooPlus. Like Tinder, you simply swipe on your matches. The site will take the information that you submit in your profile and use it to find relevant potential matches. You then swipe left for no and right for yes. Obviously, if they swipe right on you too then you have a match. You are limited to the number of times you can swipe in a day so you have to make the most of your sessions and time them well.
If you want to know how to delete a WooPlus account or cancel a subscription then you simply need to tap on the three lines at the top of the app. The next step is to click on the gear icon and then scroll down to the bottom of the page to find the delete button. You will be asked if you wish to delete your account then you need to confirm. When it comes to canceling the subscription, you will need to go to the relevant subscriptions settings within your iOS or Android device itself and not the app. You can then manage your Google Play or iTunes subscriptions from there.
WooPlus is very easy to use. Being entirely built as an app in the first instance, it is easy to navigate and use on the go. Its functionality rivals that of Tinder, which of course it is designed to do and you can enjoy swiping left or right on potential matches quickly and effectively. For plus size women who don’t want to be judged, or that want to feel comfortable in a community of like-minded singles, then it is a great idea. The growth of the site to two million users in 3 years indicates that it is extremely popular with members and it has received a lot of mainstream press coverage. While it may not be everyone’s cup of tea, with some people thinking the nature of it is demeaning, there are many more women who love the site and have met their partners and found happiness.
