Great for students looking for flexible childcare work!

I use Bubble to babysit part-time alongside my postgraduate degree. It’s great for students because it’s so flexible and you can set your own availability.

I’ve met a lot of new families via Bubble over the years. It’s a great way to meet new families, especially when you are new to an area or move city.

I love the new app features such as setting your rate for specific jobs and filtering by job type!

Nice but far from excellent

I like this app for any extra during weekends I don’t have plans or have days off from my main nanny roll.

It’s an app FOR parents and made for them, babysitter here doesn’t take much benefits from apart from paying fees, they can cancel even when you get to the place and without paying NOTHING or ANY FEE at all for your time of booking and waste of travel.

This have to change, if a uber gets a fee of time waste for a cancel trip, am I not worth a compensation of my time and money to travel there? Wouldn’t be fair for those parents to pay a fee as a part of booking? Luckily some parents do pay a compensation or the sit but that unfortunately doesn’t happen often.

Friends of mine have had their profile blocked because cancelled sits, for personal or work related emergency which on the child careers world happens a lot. They don’t care or ask you why you needed to cancel, so it just what parents wants and their needs.

I’m aware of it, which the reason why I only do occasionally sits with and not long ones because it’s useful to be honest but I wouldn’t trust only this for jobs.

This app need to improve and protect the workers that make you earn money, I have a fee taken from every job and I don’t feel well treated or respect. There’s a lot more to change to be a trusted app.

Hope the Bubble team can take the advise and look after the sitters betters.

Hi there, thanks for taking the time to leave a review. We're sorry to hear you feel that way as we do care about the experiences that all of our customers have. When it comes to cancellations, it is always something we look into case by case and apply a common sense approach. We understand that sometimes a cancellation is unavoidable on either the parent or the sitter’s side. There is a goodwill payment system in place that many parents use and using the app provides many benefits for sitters, such as insurance and meeting new families and winning more work. Platform fees cover the costs of running the platform and reduce over time with every sit. We're proud how sitters on bubble earn more per hour on average then with any other similar service. If you have any further concerns or wish to speak to us further, please get in touch by emailing us at!

Good app but payment is a downfall

This app is really good for finding extra work when needed however I do think the payment is a downfall. It’s really good that when in need of extra money- childcare professionals can turn to this app however I think the payment process is ridiculous. The fact you have to actually wait 72 hours to get the money you earned is a joke. I think you should allow parents to transfer money to carers or give cash as there’s no need for it to take so long. A simple bank transfer would be in the account instantly. I only use this when I’m in need of some extra money and having to wait for the money I earned is not ideal. Either allow money to be given personally or develop away for it to be in babysitters account instantly

Hi Lucy, we're really glad you've managed to find extra work easily using bubble; that's great to hear. We always advise that 72h is the maximum amount of time; sitters generally get paid within 24h, though weekends can cause delays on the bank's side. A direct bank transfer is not instantaneous, and bubble's payment system is typically faster than many other online marketplaces. Parents and sitters generally love our payment system due to its security, the insurance that comes with it, and how easy it is instead of having to deal with cash. I hope we can continue to help you out finding extra work when you need it.
