A Standard Plan has all the basic paid features such as sending messages and seeing who viewed your profile. While the Premium plan gets you more exclusive features such as browsing anonymously, a read notification in messages, and voice calling.
What does Match premium get?
The Premium Match Plan gives you access to a yearly review of your profiles from Match staff, a monthly boost that can push your views way up, and email read notifications so you never miss a message. There are several Standard Match Plans that will give you access to message and chat with that special someone.
Can you message on Match without premium?
You can even send likes and messages for free. Match.com provides limited chat features to its free members — just to give them a taste of flirtation. Free members cannot initiate a conversation, but they can read and respond to some messages from their mutual matches.
