Tinder Tops Overall Revenue Rankings For September 2020

Mobile analytics company has published its monthly report of the highest grossing dating apps around the world.

August’s list was once again led by Tinder and Bumble, who both grossed more than $83.5 million and $22.7 million respectively. Tinder’s income marked a 7.8% year-on-year increase, while Bumble has grown by almost 17% compared to the same month in 2019.

Match Group’s Japanese subsidiary retained its place as the third highest grossing dating app, ahead of Badoo and The Meet Group’s MeetMe.

Hinge was recognised in sixth position, and last week, the CEO of Match Group Americas noted that the dating app was expecting to triple its revenue in 2020, largely due to its refined premium model.

Plenty Of Fish was seventh for the month, ahead of the “Chinese Tinder” Tantan. 

However, Tantan faced a setback in September when it was banned in India due to heightened tensions between the two countries. It had been hoping to turn India into one of its biggest markets with 200 million by 2021. 

Finally, Tagged and Tapple took the final two spots on the combined rankings for both iOS and Google Play Stores.

No apps that are specifically dedicated to the LGBTQ community were included after regular mainstay Grindr dropped out of the top ten. It did make it to the third spot on the list for the Google Play Store.
