How do I upgrade to the sitter membership plan?

Sitters: UrbanSitter is absolutely free for you to sign up - however, we do offer a Premium Membership that grants you access to enhanced tools and features such as:

  • the ability to send custom messages to parents when expressing interest in jobs
  • the ability to reply to parent reviews 
  • higher rankings in parent search results
  • a free background check

To improve your sitter profile and upgrade your membership plan to the Premium Membership, navigate to your Account's Settings page.


On the right side of your screen next to 'Account Basics', click 'Upgrade'. This will take you to the sitter Membership Pricing page - under 'Upgrade to Premium', click 'Upgrade' to confirm your purchase of the Premium Membership plan. 



Click here to read our Payment Terms. 

Pricing: we offer the sitter Premium Membership as a Monthly plan for $9.95/month (with a $10 one-time initiation fee) or an Annual plan for $69.95/year. The membership automatically renews, but you can cancel at any time and you'll retain access to your membership benefits until the end of your billing cycle.
