Frequently Asked Questions

Who can use CardDate®?

Anyone over 18 years of age with a valid United States phone number and a credit card can use CardDate®. Anyone who meets those criteria, regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity, race, or religion is allowed to order cards and use our service.

Who can see my profile?

Only the people who receive your card or your profile web address are able to see your CardDate® profile. You decide who can see your profile by choosing who you give your card to.

Your profile is private. It is not indexed, meaning it will not come up in Google search results. It can only be accessed by scanning the unique QR code on your card or by entering the direct URL to your private profile. (We do not recommend giving out a direct link).

Does the recipient of my card need to have an account to view my profile or message me?

Nope! You can use CardDate® to connect with anybody you'd like. All they need is a smartphone with SMS capabilities (and when is the last time you met someone who didn't have a smartphone?). Once someone receives a card from you, all they need to do is scan the QR code with their phone. From there, it's easy for them to view your profile and commence with messaging you!

How do I send someone a message?

Sending and receiving messages through CardDate® is simple. To protect your privacy and safety, CardDate® requires that both users accept a chat request, which happens automatically once a card recipient messages your profile. Once the request is accepted by both users, you are connected and able to begin chatting immediately. You will send and receive messages just like you would a regular text message on your phone.
