As of September 2015, Match.com offers a free seven-day trial of its service. A sign-up link on its website offers a quick form for interested parties to fill out to get started. The form asks basic information to help customize the user’s experience.
The trial entitles the site visitor to log in to the website, view other profiles and communicate with other members via email or instant messaging or by sending a “wink” through the Match.com system. After registering for free, the user can post a profile with photos, browse for matches and use all of the site's features. Registering also signs the person up for promotional emails from Match.com, although it is possible to withdraw consent to receive the emails if desired.
