The app has been testing pricing in several markets over the past few months, with prices ranging from 0.99 dollars to 19.99 dollars per month. Sources said that the pricing is expected to vary from market to market but added that the service will hit the U.S. market at a price under 10 dollars, reported TechCrunch.

The new Tinder Plus will come with a slew of features that will add broader functionality to the service. One of the most attractive and highly requested feature would be the Rewind function that will allow users to go back to the very last person they swiped left on. Instead of losing them forever, users can pay a little extra to bring them back and get a second look.
