How should I pay a sitter I hired on Sittercity?

Once you hire someone from Sittercity, you are their employer and are responsible for paying that caregiver based on an agreed-upon rate and form of payment. So, it’s important to be sure to agree on the terms of payment (rate and form) up front. Forms of payment could include Venmo, Zelle, Paypal, or cash.

Please note that since Sittercity is an online meeting venue/job board and not an agency, we do not employ caregivers in any way. As such,  Sittercity does not get involved in the hiring process or monetary transactions between families and caregivers. We simply provide the platform for families to post jobs, and for caregivers to advertise their services & apply for jobs posted by families.
