City launches co-sharing matchmaking service,offers $15000 bonus

A co-sharing matchmaking service consisting of Shanghais 28 matchmaking agencies was set up in the city on Monday, aiming to buck the declining marriage trend.

Member agencies of the alliance will share with each other the information about their clients, including their personal details and preferences, to expand the pool of potential marriage partners, said the Shanghai Marriage Introduction Organization Administration Association, a government-backed group that built the alliance.

The number of clients a matchmaking agency in Shanghai has usually varies from over 10,000 to a few hundred thousand, which is probably not enough for single people to find the right person, said the association director Xu Tianli.

The co-sharing matchmaking service, by putting all the more than 1 million clients of the 28 agencies together, will basically cover Shanghais main single groups, Xu told on Tuesday. They will have much more choice, he added.

The alliance offers a bonus to encourage staffers of its member agencies to actively share information about their clients. The amount is up to 100,000 yuan ($15,440) for agents if two clients eventually get married, Xu said.

Shanghai has some 3 million single adults, according to Xu. The metropolis marriage rate has experienced a six-year consecutive drop, falling from 10.46 per thousand in 2013 to 6.78 per thousand in 2019, according to the local civil affairs authority.

"It is not easy for single young people in Shanghai to meet and get to know the opposite sex C many of them are busy and picky, Xu joked.

The association plans to expand the service to other parts of China in the second half of 2021, said Xu.

The matchmaking service may be needed in a low-marriage but childbirth-encouraging society, but nonetheless it has triggered privacy concerns. 

"It would be terrible if my information was circulated to dozens of agencies and even the whole matchmaking market, said a single woman surnamed Qian. Im afraid that may bring inconvenience and potential fraud risks.

Agencies co-sharing of information on their clients can pose a threat to personal data security, legal experts said. 
All the 28 member agencies of the co-sharing matchmaking alliance are formal, legally registered ones, Xu responded, saying information leakage or misuse wont happen as the agencies have a good work ethic.
