Life changing app

We started using this app last summer when we moved to a new area and had to start over from scratch with finding reliable and trustworthy sitters.
I had some negative experiences with care. Com, etc and I hated paying a monthly fee on top of the subpar experience finding and booking a good sitter. I liked that it was free but I was still skeptical to try Bambino.
Once I downloaded the app and made a profile, I was able to see sitters in our immediate area who had been rated and reviewed by Mom’s in my neighborhood on (that I verified on the neighborhood fb page). Seeing that real Moms, that were acquaintances, use the sitters near me made me feel so much better about using it.
I’m so glad that we did. Our first sitter (whom we now use regularly) is AMAZING. The times she hasn’t been available we have been able to use 3 other equally amazing sitters that we love and, more importantly, our kids love.
We never have an issue finding a sitter now. If those 4 aren’t available, I can see my friends’ favorite sitters that live nearby and request them instead.
I can go to doctor’s appointments now, meetings, run errands, have date nights with my husband, we can go to weddings, etc.
It’s truly changed our lives for the better. I can’t gush enough about it.

Missing Payments

I joined this app as a means of making some money on the side, I’ve always loved to babysit and figured this app was a good way to connect with families in the city looking for fill-in child care. The connection aspect of the app is wonderful, as are the families I have met through Bambino, however receiving payment from Bambino has been more than a challenge. To put it lightly. A 2-3 business day window is given to sitters to expect payment after the job is completed and confirmed on the families end - of the times I have sat through the app my payment has only been received in that window on one occasion. They are plagued with delays and excuses for non-payment. I’m currently awaiting payment for a job completed NINE days ago, and I have reached out every day after that initial 3 day window and they have been less than helpful. I will submit a inquiry as to the status of my funds, be told I will receive payment by that evening or at least a message back within 24 hours - neither has come. At the very least they should be responsive and keep sitters up to date on the status of the payments, especially if they are going to be late. The responsibility should not be on me, the sitter, to track down my payment as I have already completely the work required of me. So disappointed in this service as it has the potential all to be amazing. Beware if you’re trying to make quick cash on the side, you will not be paid in any sort of timely fashion.

Developer Response ,

Please accept our sincerest apology. The payment issue you are referencing is completely outside of Bambino's control. The issue is between Braintree and Venmo, which are both PayPal companies. They have taken full responsibility for the delays and are working towards a solution. Thank you for your patience. We are doing everything we can to get them to resolve this immediately.

Biased 🚫🚫🚫 Beware

I am 16 years old and have been using the Bambino app for over a year. It is a good way to connect with parents in your area. Unfortunately it is a bit biased and parents tend to be favored. Payment is through the app so when a babysitter is done with their job and the parents have come home they hit the button that says end job and they are given the option to give a thumbs up or a thumbs down about the parents.
Parents can then confirm the payment and give a recommendation. But in order for that to happen the babysitter must ask for it when they confirm the sit is over. They have no idea what the parent will say about them (which is public and permanently on the sitter’s profile)and that’s when a parent can say very negative things about a babysitter and not worry about it because they won’t have to see them if they choose not to hire them again. Unfortunately a babysitter cannot defend themselves and state the facts on why the parents negative views may be incorrect or unfair. Also, a babysitter can’t rate a parent which seems logical but actually is frustrating because some parents have standards that are way too high to begin with. Watch out future sitters! I recommend this app but it will most likely be a bit of a rough experience.
