How will service providers pay for listing?

Posted on 23. Feb, 2011 by in Incubator, Silly Parents

I was looking through Craigslist’s childcare services section and thought of a big problem with my business plan: how am I going to collect payment from services providers.  Most service providers won’t use a credit to pay to post an online ad.  They tend to deal in cash offline, whether it’s the babysitter or the kids clothing store.  How can my site track whether a transaction resulted from the parent and the service provider finding one another on my site?  Even if the tracking works, will these service providers be willing to pay with their credit cards online?

    You might want to check out WyzAnt.com they do something similar but with tutors. The angle they take is that they are pre-screening both sides of the business relationship.
