About ZipSit

ZipSit was created by parents, for parents, with the ultimate goal of making parents and sitters lives easier!

We are passionate about simplifying parent’s lives.

ZipSit was born from the traditional inefficiencies parents face trying to find, communicate, schedule, and pay sitters. Tired of constantly struggling with the sitting process, ZipSit decided to do something about it. ZipSit was created over two years ago, with the mission of simplifying parents and sitters lives by providing an efficient means for managing all aspects of the sitting process. Parents were looking for a quick and reliable way to book trusted sitters. Sitters were looking for an easy way to manage their communication with families from their smartphones. ZipSit created and launched its app in 2016 and have been making parents and sitters happy ever since.

Forget about contacting 5 different sitters the next time you want to go out. Uncomfortable negotiations? Never again. Last minute trips to the ATM & rounding up to pay the sitter are things of the past. The ZipSit app is the easiest way to connect, manage, schedule and pay sitters – all for free. Today, ZipSit leads the mobile sitting revolution, bringing on-demand sitting to families everywhere. ZipSit continues to be the highest-quality mobile sitting application available anywhere.
