Redhotpie made waves by giving couples dating and one night stands an excellent platform to be spotlighted on, meaning that swingers and hot singles will have easy access to casual fun. Whether you are single, a couple, in a group, LGBTQ, Redhotpie has something for you.

Curious about why New Zealanders are excited by Redhotpie? Read on to learn everything you need to know as we review their different membership tiers, prices, their sign-up process, user-friendliness and more!

Our Summary

Although Redhotpie doesn’t offer a lot in terms of unique features and things to do outside of socializing for casual dating and hook-ups, the simplicity and directness of the website and app’s service is something that we appreciate and are happy to see.

Millions of Kiwis have found a place that truly works for them in helping them to enjoy kinky casual hook-ups, swinging, and discreet affairs, and that place is Redhotpie. Their location-based matchmaking makes it easy to find locals looking to enjoy hot hook-ups.

The site is easy to use and registering is simple, but there have been some concerns over safety with the site in the past regarding how easy it was to sign-up. However, we didn’t notice anything beyond some fake profiles, which can happen on dating sites.

Overall, we enjoyed our experience with Redhotpie and found that, as a casual dating service, they had a lot to offer in terms of making hooking up with locals easier to do. Most features will require a premium account to fully enjoy the service, though.

Since registering is free, why not give Redhotpie a look for yourself to see if it is right for you?

💡 How to reduce costs

As you may be able to tell, Redhotpie can be a little pricey. One way to reduce costs though is to take your time with the free site and explore it a bit. You won’t be able to message anyone, but you can check out the forums to see if anything strikes your fancy there.

Another thing you can do, if you want to upgrade but are unsure of what to commit yourself to, is to register with the 1-month premium plan for 46.80 AUD, which is overall cheaper than a longer subscription. Just make sure to turn off auto-renewal.

✍️ Registration process and profile creation review

Briefly state what it is. “The registration process is quick and easy to do, and you can finish your profile at a later time if you would like.” Rename below as necessary, try to keep 5.

  1. Signing Up

    The first thing you will need to provide is your location, which is natural enough for a casual dating site, as well as a valid email address for verification purposes, a username you like for the site, and a password to go along with it.

  2. Tell them about yourself

    You will now be asked to give some information about either yourself or the people you are representing, which can include couples and groups. You have the option of saying whether you are a man, a woman, or if you identify as trans (TV/CD).

    In a very progressive move, you also have the option of selecting whether you are a heterosexual couple, a lesbian couple, or a gay couple. Groups are only ever identified as groups. Trans people can identify if they are MtF or FtM.

  3. Building Your Profile

    The next thing to add will be your age, which is important for ensuring that everyone on the site is of legal age. Afterward, you will have to give some information about your relationship status.

    There are a few options to choose from for how you want to identify your relationship status, including: single, attached, married, separated, divorced, and a request that you be asked personally.

  4. Physical appearance and who you are looking to meet

    Now you will need to give information about your physical appearance, including your body type, height, and your ethnicity. There are a few basic choices for you here, but it is best to be honest so that you don’t upset any potential matches.

  5. Upload your photo and personalize your profile

    The final thing you will be asked to do is upload of profile photo of yourself. Your picture should be well lit and should highlight your best features. Because the site is a casual dating site for hook-ups, you can be a little risqué with your pictures.

    After this, you are free to use the site. However, you can add some more information about your personality, drinking and smoking habits, and some more information about your physical features, like hair and eye colour.

    You can even add some more details about your sexual orientation, how you prefer to go about hooking up, your hobbies, and the type of sex you like to have and with whom. You will be given a few sections to write in at the end of it as well.

📱 User friendliness review

🙋 FAQs

Can I reactivate my account?

Yes, but you have a limited window to do so. If you only recently cancelled your account, Redhotpie can reactivate that account for you. If it has been longer than a year since it was deactivated, we recommend creating a new account.

How do I select a location when checking in?

You will have to type in the name of the city you will be based in when first signing up. If you would like to change this location later, you will have to do the following:

1. Click on your username while logged in, located in the upper-right of the website
2. Select ‘Edit Age/Location’
3. Click on ‘Suburb/Location’ and type in the new location

A dropdown list will appear, so you will have to select from one of these locations. Confirm your changes when you are finished.

Why am I not getting any messages in my inbox?

If you feel you should be getting messages but are not receiving any in your inbox, then please be sure that you have not elected to lock your inbox.

1. Click on the arrow next to your username in the top right-hand corner of the logged in homepage
2. Click on Account & Profile
3. Go to ‘General Settings’
4. Be sure that the option to NOT receive new messages has NOT been selected
5. If it is, deselect it

My inbox shows a new message, but why can’t I see it?

RedHotPie now has message filtering so that only messages that have been sent from members who fit your ’Looking For’ criteria land in your main inbox area when you first go to My Messages.

Messages from members who don’t fit your criteria can be accessed by selecting ’Non-Matching Messages’ or ’All Messages’ on the drop-down menu located at the top of your inbox. ’Missing’ messages are usually in the ’Non-Matching Messages’ area.

To modify your ’Looking For’ criteria, do the following:
1. Go to Account & Profile
2. Select ‘My Profile’
3. Click on ‘Looking For’
4. You will be able to specify the age, member type, relationship status and other details of your ideal match – these will go into ‘Matching Message’
5. All other messages can be viewed in your ‘Non-Matching Messages’ area

Only members who fall into your specified age range, member type etc. will have their messages delivered to you as a ’Matching Message’. All others can be seen in your ’Non-Matching Messages’ area.

How do I upgrade my existing membership to a higher level?

If you wish to upgrade your membership to a higher level, please go to ‘Membership Options’ and select the tier of premium membership that you would like. Your subscription for your old account should end and the new one should take over.

If you have any problems with this, you can contact Redhotpie’s support team for help.

How do I delete my Redhotpie account?

If you feel you may use your account again one day, we recommend that you make your profile invisible by going to Profile Setting and checking the box to make your profile unavailable to view.

If you are sure you would like to delete your account, please make sure your subscription is cancelled and then do the following:

1. Visit your Account & Profile
2. Go to ‘Preferences’
3. Select ‘Deactivate Account’ and follow the instructions.

How do I turn off my auto-renew?

Turning off your auto-renew for subscriptions is easy. Just do the following:

1. Go to your Account & Profile
2. Select ‘My Membership’
3. Go to ‘Subscription Renewal’
4. Select the option to turn off auto-renew
5. Confirm your selection

What if I don’t want other members to know my location?

Unfortunately, there doesn’t seem to be much that you can do other than changing your current location. The location you have will only ever give the name of the city you are in, so no one will know exactly where you are.

If you use the app, you can select ‘Nearby’ to only give other members you match with a vague idea on where you are. If this isn’t satisfactory, we recommend contacting Redhotpie’s website support for help on solving the issue.

What is the ‘Nearby’ feature about?

This allows you to see See members around your area using the app. You can adjust your privacy settings to “accurate,” “vicinity,” and “nearby.”

1. Accurate—your location will be shown to members in their search results.
2. Vicinity—let other members know that you are around the area, but nothing exact.
3. Nearby—only shows your registered location, not the current one.
