Profile Picture Standards for Sitters

Our data shows that Sitters who use our profile photo suggestions (below) book far more sits than those who do not. What does that mean for you? Better profile = more connections, which in turn means more $$$$$ for YOU! 

 Your photo should be:

  • Clear and bright – Lighting matters!

     

  • Only you – for the safety and security of you and our families, you need to be identifiable from your picture when you arrive to a booking. Think of this how you would a ride-share app that shows you the make and model of the car you will be getting into. Safety depends on Parents being able to easily identify you from your profile picture.

     

  • Recent Photo -The security of our app depends on you! Your profile picture needs to be a picture that is 3 months old or less. If you have recently made major changes to your appearance, it will need to be newer. Use good judgment!

     

  • Job ready – Your photo should be the BEST representation of who you are! That means you want to look “first day on the job ready”. Put your best foot forward, or in this case, best SMILE!

How does payment work?

Setting Up Payments:

On Bambino, all transactions are cashless and handled securely within the app! To set up your payment preferences, head to your “My Account” tab and click on “Set Up My Payment Account.” Have any questions about Stripe, our payment processor? Check out the FAQ linked in the app for more info about Stripe Payments.

 

How Much Will I Earn?

You have the freedom to set your own rates on Bambino! If you’re unsure about what to charge, use the helpful chart within the app to find a suitable rate based on your area and experience. To modify your rate, go to “My Account” and then click “My Hourly Rate.” Remember, any changes will only apply to future sits.

 

When Will I Receive Payment?

Get paid effortlessly after each sit. Parents will confirm and complete your payment, which will then be automatically deposited into your account within 2-5 business days. For a quicker payout, opt for Stripe’s “Instant Payment” option for a nominal fee (availability may vary).

 

Note: It’s against Bambino’s policy for Sitters to request or receive payment outside the app. This is to ensure both parties have a secure and trustworthy payment experience.



When do I get paid?

After a parent confirms your payment, it will be processed on the next business day via Stripe, a leading payment processor. The funds will be deposited into your bank account within 1-3 business days, based on your chosen option. You can also opt for Instant Payments.

If you babysit from Friday evening to Sunday, expect your payment by Wednesday evening at the latest. Payments for evening jobs are processed the next business day. Please note, that bank holidays and payments made with American Express may cause delays.

To ensure prompt payment, please double-check your account information by navigating to My Account > Payments.

How old do I have to be to join Bambino?

To join our Bambino community, you need to be at least 13 years old. For our friends who are under 18, don’t fret! We’ll just need a thumbs-up from your parent or guardian. We’re here to make things smooth and simple, guiding you step-by-step during the registration process to get all the permissions needed. You’re not alone in this; we’re here to welcome you into the Bambino family with open arms!

How do you screen parents?

In the Bambino community, our aim is to establish solid connections between neighborhood parents and sitters. Bambino is all about making these connections easier, convenient, and safer. We firmly believe that trust is nurtured through physical and social proximity, and our goal is to create a community where neighbors and friends validate each other.

Make Connections and Stay Informed 

  • Connect with Friends on the App: By linking your phone contacts and browsing the Community tab, you can add friends to your Favorites, helping you see any mutual connections with families requesting your services.
  • Check Parent Verification: Look to see if the parent has previously completed a sit through the app with another Bambino Sitter.
  • View Essential Information: Review the parent’s name and address before accepting a sit request.
  • Provide Feedback: After ending the sit, submit feedback about your experience. Any negative feedback is carefully reviewed by our Bambino Member Care Team.
  • Opt-Out Option: If you prefer not to sit for a family again, choose the “thumbs down” option, hiding your profile from the family’s future searches.
