Fee-Based Services
  • Responding to personal ads

Browsing through the entire website is available for free. To be able to post and reply to an ad, you have to create an AsiaXPAT account. You can post ads anywhere for free, but responding to the posted ads will cost you 188 HKD per month, or 488 HKD for the whole year. Reading through the ads, you will realize that users have found a way to skip payment entirely - by replying to an ad with another ad. The title is usually a copy of the original ad with an added " - Response!" at the end. However, the effectiveness seems dubious because there is no known way where the original poster will be notified by the reply post.

Asiaxpat in Detail

  • Lots of insider information for more success

Signing Up at Asiaxpat

AsiaXpat Signup
  • Signing up is simple and efficient
  • You're signing up to the whole classified ads site, not just the dating section
  • Email verification is required
  • You are asked whether you're a Property Agent or not
  • Only an age range is needed, not your specific age

The age ranges that you can choose from are under 25, 25 - 34, 35 - 44, 45 - 54, and 55 and above. This is where the discrepancy between a dating site and a classified ads site starts to show up. In online dating, a specific age would prove more useful since potential matches would like to get to know you better. However, when it comes to posting ads, the topic of the ad has more focus (it's not just for dating ads, but for property ads, jobs, etc.) instead of the one who posted. 

When you register to AsiaXPAT, you're essentially signing up to the whole classified ads website, not just the dating sections of the site. So expect to be bombarded with all sorts of ads once your registration is complete. You also have the ability to post any sort of ad not related to online dating. 

Making Contact on Asiaxpat

Asiaxpat Website Design
  • Structured as a classifieds website
  • Elements are well-organized throughout the page
  • Minimal design and colors, pleasing to the eyes
  • Basic fonts are used, and there are very few extra features
  • Full of paid ads all around the site in different forms

    The website is, obviously, structured as a classified ads website. Ads are present in different forms and in full force. There are banner ads, image ads, text ads, pop-up ads, ads on the top, bottom, right, and left of the page, and more. Although this is to be expected for this type of website, it can still be difficult to navigate to the Personals section. In addition, the design of each ad is very simplistic. This is a double-edged sword. Some people could see this as an advantage because of how straightforward it looks - there's no way you can go wrong here.

    For others, it could be a turn off. You'll have to read through each ad before determining which one is worth your time, and, no matter how much AsiaXPAT promises otherwise, there are still a number of ads which are grammatically incorrect and have misspelled words. Though a lot of good things can be said about the layout and colours, this website isn't really conducive for dating.

    Asiaxpat Profile Quality

    Asiaxpat Ads
    • Ads can be Classifieds, Personals, Properties, or Directory
    • Dating ads fall under Personals
    • Responding to a listing requires payment
    • Your ad can run for 3 months or 12 months
    • Most of the Personals ads are people looking for companionship
    • The profiles are poorly detailed
    • Asiaxpat does not have profile pictures

    Once you've created your account, you are redirected to a dashboard where your posted ads are organized. The 4 types of ads you can list are: Classifieds, Personals, Properties, and Directory. For this review, we will be focusing on the Personals ads. Under the Personals tab in the website, there are different types of ads:

    • Women Wanting Women
    • Language Exchange
    • Gatherings
    • Women Wanting Men
    • Travel Friends
    • Men Wanting Men
    • Just Friends
    • Activity Partners/Teams
    • Men Wanting Women

    The "Women Wanting Men" and "Men Wanting Women" sections have the most ads. However, that isn't saying much, since there is only an average of one new listing per day. AsiaXPAT still screens ads before they are published. Some of the less obvious no-nos are explicit ads, ones that have poor punctuation, spelling, and capitalisation, and any sort of commercial ads. You can reply to any of the datings ads available, but you have to be a paying member of the website.

    Special Features

    How can I delete my Asiaxpat account and cancel my subscription?

    How can you cancel your Subscription?

    • You can cancel via profile settings
    • You can cancel by sending an email

    Will your subscription automatically renew?

    • No, your subscription will not automatically renew.

    Is there a money back guarantee and do you get refunded the full amount?

    • Usually you will not get back the full amount, it will be reduced by the time or credits you used for Asiaxpat.

    Editor's Conclusion

    DatingScout.com Author Chris Pleines
    Chris Pleines
    Chief Dating Officer
    Even though it boasts a huge amount of visitors and page views, AsiaXPAT is not a good website for dating. As a user, you will only see one bare ad with a title. You can't see a profile photo (or even the username) of the person who posted the ad.

    Asiaxpat FAQ

    Usability

    How do I post an ad?

    First, you have to be a member of AsiaXPAT. Then, go to the Personals tab at the top right of the website, scroll down where you'll see "Hong Kong Personals", then click on the green button that says "Post an ad".

    How do I reply to an ad?

    How can I delete my ad?

    Go to the Control Panel of your account. On the left side, you will see "My Ads". Click through to find the ad that you want to delete, select it, then click "delete selected" at the very bottom.

    How long before my ad is posted?

    Since ads are reviewed by AsiaXPAT, it can take somewhere between 15 to 30 minutes before the ad is published. If it is posted after 12 midnight, it will be published at 9:30am the following day.

    Why was my ad rejected?

    3. Credit card holder name
    4. World Pay transaction ID - this would have been sent to the email address specified during the checkout
