GKiss gives you a choice between Standard membership, which is free, and Gold membership, which comes with a choice of billing cycles.

To be fair, GKiss’ free membership gives you a bit more freedom than comparable plans from stingier competitors. You can create a profile and upload up to 26 photos, post comments and questions, and even send winks to other members to express your interest. However, you can’t initiate conversations with anybody, and you’ll only be able to reply to messages if they were sent by paid users.

There’s still a vast gulf between the features of the Standard and Gold membership, though. While you can search for users as a Standard member, for example, you’re confined to searching by username (not helpful unless you already know people) or first date ideas (not a great filter). If you want even the most basic of filters (e.g., location), you’ll need to pay up.

In fact, most of the features we’ll be discussing later in this review are accessible only to Gold members. Here’s a look at how much you can expect to pay, depending on your chosen billing plan:

  • 1 Month: $29.95
  • 3 Months: $19.95 per month
  • 6 Months: $15.95 per month

Bear in mind that GKiss charges payments as a lump sum, so you’ll pay the cost of your subscription’s full duration in one go. GKiss accepts payments through credit or debit cards, check, or PayPal.
