Badoo is free to join and the perfect place to chat, find new people, upload photos and videos, play Encounters and have fun. We offer premium features such as Rise Up and Spotlight to help you attract even more attention. You buy these using Badoo credits.
- What are HOT or NOT credits?
HOT or NOT credits help you get attention, simple as that. With credits you can Rise Up in search results, step into the Spotlight on the search page, get more displays in Encounters and more. You can also enable Auto Top-up to make sure you never run out of credits.
- What is Auto Top-up?
Auto Top-up makes buying credits much easier - it automatically tops up your HOT or NOT credits every time your balance falls below 200 credits. You'll get to spend more time using HOT or NOT and less time thinking about running out of credits!
- How many credits can I buy?
You can buy 100, 550, 1250 or 2750 credits at a time.
- How do I activate Auto Top-up?
Go to your Payments settings or to Credits Central and click Top up now. Auto Top-up is available for all payment methods except SMS.
- What is Spotlight?
Spotlight gets you seen instantly, as it puts your photo at the top of the page so everyone in your area can see it. On your Popularity page, click Step into the Spotlight and choose the photo and greeting you want displayed. Then select a payment method and follow the instructions.
- What is Rise Up?
Rise Up is a great way to get noticed. It puts your profile at the top of search results for people in your area, and when you're in first place you’ll get more views and messages.
To Rise Up, go to your Popularity page and click 'Rise up to first place in search results'! Then choose a payment method and follow the instructions.
- How can I appear in Encounters more often?
The more your photo is shown in Encounters, the more you’ll get seen by people who want to meet you. On your Popularity page, click 'Get noticed in Encounters'. Then choose a payment method and follow the instructions.
- What is a Gift and how can I send one?
You can send a Gift to someone to show that you like them. The gift appears on the user's Profile page, and we have a wide selection of cool gifts you can choose from.
To send a Gift, go to the Profile page of the person you like and click Grab his/her attention with a gift! Choose from the Gifts available and make someone’s day!
- How can I increase my daily contact limit?
We understand that sometimes you might want to contact more than five other HOT or NOT users a day, so there are a couple of options that will let you extend your daily contact limit.
To increase your limit by another five contacts a day, permanently, you can get Verified Status on your Profile Page
. If you want to increase your limit further, and chat to even more new people, you’ll need to buy HOT or NOT credits. These will let you chat to an additional 20 people.
