Care.com offers a range of membership options with varying costs for users. With the basic membership, users can create an account, post a job, view caregiver profiles and access certain resources. However, to message providers, they need to upgrade to a paid version.
The standard paid version of Care.com is available on an annual or monthly basis and provides users with access to messaging with caregivers, hiring caregivers, Care.com’s on-demand booking feature and exclusive deals and discounts.
In contrast, the premium membership includes all the features of the basic membership as well as the ability to contact caregivers directly, interview them, hire them and use Care.com’s on-demand booking feature. Users also have access to unlimited criminal and motor vehicle checks and exclusive deals and discounts offered by Care.com.
Furthermore, Care.com allows users to purchase more in-depth background checks in line with their policies.
