Unlike other sitting solutions, ZipSit gives Arcadia families the ability to control all three phases of the sitting process: finding, booking and paying. ZipSit makes it easy for Arcadia families to find new, trusted sitters – you control who shows up at your house to watch your kids, and you even get to choose your hourly rate. No unknown sitters. No negotiations. No service fees.
