Our Dating Websites are No More

May 5, 2024 | News

Dear Dating Site Visitor

Whether you’re a Chat27 regular, or you’re a visitor to our MeetSA or GaySA dating sites, you might have noticed the conspicuous absence of the dating website references since 1 May 2024.

Also, as you might know from this post, I have been trying to raise some much needed funds to keep Chat27 alive by expanding our offering to include two dating websites. These sites relied on a company called White Label Dating (WLD) in order to function.

On 30 April 2024 I received an email from David Adam, WLD’s CEO, containing the below message. I am frustrated, heartbroken (the irony), and just a little bit angry:

Good Afternoon,

I’m writing to let you know that after a strategic review as part of broader shareholder changes, Venntro Media Group has taken the decision to terminate the White Label Dating Partnership Programme.

We are therefore emailing to give you notice of termination:

  1. We will be terminating all existing partnerships on 31st May 2024.
  2. You will continue to earn revenue share on all revenue generated from your sites until 31st May 2024.
  3. Following termination, you will be paid for the revenues generated up to 31st May 2024 after refunds, chargebacks and any fees.
  4. We will help you to migrate your sites to another white label platform of your choosing from 31st May 2024 onwards.

We are therefore serving notice on our agreement as of today.

Either on this date, or before our recommended solution is https://hubpeople.ai/ who can help you migrate quickly and we will be on hand to support the migration of your brands.

We can provide any source files, landing pages, etc directly to your chosen white label provider and we will do all we can to help you over the next four weeks to minimise the disruption to your business.

I am very sorry to have to announce this termination and rest assured that we will do all we can to help you move to another revenue sharing platform as detailed above.

Yours Sincerely

David Adams
Chief Operating Officer
White Label Dating®

Of course, when I tried to reply to this message, I got an “Out of Office” autoresponse.

To those of you who have signed up on our dating sites: I am so sorry for wasting your time. I backed the wrong horse. I hope that those of you who upgraded to a premium package that extents beyond May 31st 2024 will get those refunds. Personally, I am yet to see a single cent from WLD, and I wonder if I ever will, even after all the time and money I spent getting these websites up and running.

I will look into alternative dating site options, even though I’m a bit disillusioned with the industry, right now.

For now, until 31 May 2024, you’ll be able to log into the dating sites via these links:

Again, I apologise for the inconvenience, and thank you so much for your support.

Please follow our WhatApp channel to be the first to get Chat27 updates.

IMPORTANT: Chat27 will still continue to operate – I’ll just have to find an alternate source of funding it. You’re still welcome to leave a $1 donation on Ko-Fi.
