UrbanSitter offers caregivers the opportunity to meet families, book care jobs and interviews, and get paid - all through the site! There are two official forms of payment: cash and credit. The payment method is determined by the family at the time of booking the caregiver, and the family is expected to complete and facilitate the payment.
- If the booking is set to cash, the parent is expected to pay the sitter in cash/check/payment transfer app at the end of the booking. Sitters do not need to confirm their hours worked.
- If the booking is set to credit, the parent pays via credit/debit card and the sitter is paid via direct deposit. Sitters are deposited the funds to their bank account via their preferred payout method: Instant Payout (under 2 minutes) or Standard Payout (3-5 business days).
How you choose your payout method is up to you. You are able to add one payout method to your Payment & Payout page on the web (Payout Method screen on the app) at a time, but you can always switch back and forth - just make sure to do so before confirming your hours!
