As a member of PetBacker, you can offer your pet care services as well as search and acquire pet care services from other members.

As a Pet Care Service Provider you understand you are not an employee but an independent party, (an individual or business) utilizing the platform to offer your services to other members, regardless if you are offering your services only on PetBacker or also on other platforms.

When you join PetBacker to offer your Pet Care Services you get a host of benefits. These include the following:

  • The convenience of a pet care service centric platform with features focused towards pet care services in comparison to general purpose social platforms such as Facebook or Instagram.
  • The freedom to decide when, how, and where you wish to offer your services.
  • Full control on how much you want to charge for your services and the terms of your own services.
  • Gain additional confidence from Pet Parents with PetBacker verified reviews that come from completion of actual bookings instead of random untrusted reviews which can be easily faked by those offering services on social media such as Facebook. 
  • The security that you will have customer support during those times you need assistance.
  • Peace of mind from Premium Protection Coverage with PetBacker that covers the pets you host in an unfortunate event (*terms and conditions applies)
  • Free to list your services
  • A whole community of existing pet owners looking for services. Save marketing expenses and focus on what you do best, caring for pets!

The requirements to provide pet food or other pet supplies depends on your negotiation with the pet owner. Normally pet owners will provide the food that is most suitable for their pets but always check with the pet owners if it is not specifically mentioned to ensure your quotes are accurate. If other pet supplies such as Flea and Tick treatments are required after check in, please confirm with the pet owner before purchasing.

At the moment PetBacker does not provide the facility to purchase pet foods, but we may offer it in the future.

As a token of appreciation to our beloved Backers who support PetBacker, we offer an incentive program to lower the service fees charged to you for requests that you are hired for. The reduction in transaction fees are implemented in levels based on the number of jobs you have completed. This incentive program is only applicable to Backers who offer their services exclusively on PetBacker.

Number of jobs Service Fee
0 - 5 25%
6 - 150 20%
151 - 300 19%
301 - 1000 18%
1001 - 2000 17%
2001 - 3000 16%
3001 onwards 15%

* The fees for broadcast jobs will default to 40% if it is discovered or reported that you are not exclusive to PetBacker. Private jobs will remain at the percentage you have previous achieved. From 1st January 2021 onwards, Pet Training services will remain with a fixed 35% service fees due to the high cost of advertising dog training and exempted from any incentive program.

Service users that offer services exclusive to PetBacker enjoy service fees from 25% to as low as 15% for both private and broadcast jobs. These rates are offered through our incentive program.

Service users that are discovered or reported to offer their services on a competing platform will still enjoy service fees for private jobs from 25% to as low as 15% as per the incentive program however broadcast jobs will be charged at 30%. This is to be fair to loyal service users who work on PetBacker exclusively as well as allows us to more accurately monitor the number of pets the service user takes care of at any one time to provide a safer and more secure pet care.
