As parents ourselves, we know how hectic parenting can get. It’s why we launched SelectSitter in the first place. But we also know a lot of you have questions about how to get the most out of the SelectSitter app. That’s why we’ve rounded up some of your most commonly asked questions and are now here to give you the answers.
Q: Why can’t I leave a review of a
A: We get this question a lot, and we did consider allowing reviews when
we first launched in 2017. But then we realized that reviews might not be the
best fit in the world of babysitting. This isn’t UBER, and the last thing we
want to do is ruin a sitter’s rating after one bad night. We understand that
sometimes, people just don’t mesh. That’s why instead of reviews, we encourage
parents to give their sitters endorsements. This is a great way to learn what
other parents think and discover if a sitter is a good fit for your needs.
Q: Can I pay my sitter through the app?
A: Yes! We just launched this feature. You can now find, book, and pay your sitter all on the app. We’ll even send you reminders when it’s time to pay your sitter. Just log in, securely enter your payment info, and we’ll handle the rest. Similar to other online payment tools like Venmo, SelectSitter collects a small convenience fee with each payment.
Q: I’m new to SelectSitter and want to
know the best way to find new sitters I can trust.
A: Even in the digital age, nothing beats word of mouth. That’s why we created SelectSitter. We wanted to create a free network of babysitters, so parents could find a sitter they trust without having to call every friend in their contact list. But if you’re new to the app or are unsure about a sitter, you can use the app to message your friends who have booked the sitter you’re considering. So you can review parents’ endorsements of a potential sitter, see who your friends are booking, and message directly with your sitter all through the app.
Q: Can I send babysitting requests to
A: Yes! In fact, you can send out as many requests as you want. We even
recommend doing this. Once you’ve booked a sitter, your other requests will
disappear, so you don’t need to worry about double-booking your night.

Ditch the checkbook, and stop running to the ATM. SelectSitter is rolling out in-app payments!
Hi fellow parents and babysitters! We have some big news here at SelectSitter. We are rolling out in-app payments starting December 10 (postponed to Jan. 2019). That means soon you’ll be able to find, book, and pay your babysitters directly through the app. For all you sitters out there, this means you’ll be able to accept payments right in the app. No more last-minute trips to the ATM, and no more hunting down the checkbook. Just log in to the SelectSitter app and securely enter your payment info. We’ll take care of the rest. We’ll even send you helpful reminders when it’s time to pay your sitter and when you have funds waiting for you in your account.
We’ve been working on this new feature for the last several months. We actually got the idea from all of you! In-app payments has been the No. 1 request we’ve heard from parents and sitters since we launched last November. Now, after some experimenting, we’re ready to answer that request.
But first, let’s go over the highlights!
We’ll send you helpful reminders to make sure you pay your sitter.
We’ll also keep you posted when you have funds waiting for you in your account.
Your payment info will be securely stored in the app, which means you can pay your sitter anytime and anywhere.
No more trips to the ATM or scrounging up cash for those last-minute babysitting requests.
December 10 can’t get here soon enough! This is babysitting in the digital age.
