How do I add direct deposit information?

Before you can be paid for babysitting jobs by credit card and express interest in credit card jobs, you will need to add your direct deposit information to your account. When parents pay by credit card, the money is deposited right into your bank account. It's secure and free of charge! Of course, some parents may still opt to pay you in cash. 

You can easily add your direct deposit information on your account's Payment page. Enter your first and last name, the type of account your payment will be deposited to, and that account's Account and Routing numbers. Then click the box to accept the Payment Terms and authorize UrbanSitter to deposit your funds. Finally, click 'Add Direct Deposit' and get ready to start accepting credit card payments from parents!

UrbanSitter partners with the leaders in payment security to ensure that your information is safely stored. No one at UrbanSitter has access to your information. After it is entered, it is encrypted and stored. Please note that when setting up direct deposit, a $0.01 test deposit is made in order to verify the bank account. We do not have the ability to place any charges on your bank account.  Although, some banks may reverse the $0.01 deposit that was used for verification purposes.
