Saying “no” to Offline Payments (payments outside of the Mad Paws platform) will help your search rankings in two ways. Firstly, as you likely already know, we maintain a zero tolerance policy for Sitters who accept Offline Payments. Needless to say, it’s hard to ascend the Pet Sitter search rankings if your profile has been suspended.
Secondly - and this links back to Tip #1 - Online Payments will lead to a higher Completion Rate, Repeat Customer Rate, and Repeat Booking Rate. These improved metrics will mean a happy algorithm, and a happy algorithm will mean a rankings boost for you!
