There are two ways to book a babysitter on bubble. Browse & Book and Express Book.
With Browse & Book, a parent can swipe through babysitter profiles in their area, selecting the specific babysitters they wish to send a booking request to. Parents can send these requests our to one sitter, or many, with the first to accept the job, getting the job.
Babysitters have an availability calendar in their app, and the sitters a parent sees in their search will be those that have told the app they're available at that time.
Once the parent sends their request out, it's up to the babysitters to respond to the request, and hopefully accept it. At which point, the booking is confirmed.
With Express Book, parents ‘post up’ their requirements and babysitters in the local area get notified and are able to apply for the job.
The parent receives a shortlist of babysitters who want their job, and they then confirm it instantly with the one they deem right for them.
Here's a short video explaining how Express book works for parents.
