As of 1/30/18, we’re allowing our Boston sitters to set their own hourly rates.
Since launching Chime, we’ve been focused on making it easier to find and book the best sitters in the neighborhoods we serve. As we’ve grown — and learned quite a bit along the way — we’ve recognized a need to give Boston sitters greater control over their rates. This change will not only allow us to continue to attract the best of the best, it will also help ensure your Chime favorites are available more often.
Note: Any bookings that are made prior to January 29, 2018 will be honored at the previous $16/hour rate, even if it’s for a future date (beyond the 29th). All bookings that are made after January 29 will be charged at the rate selected by the individual sitter. Sitters who do not adjust their rate will remain at $16/hour.
We greatly appreciate your continued work with Chime!
