    Pros

    One flat rate fee to sign up,

    Cons

    It was $47.99 to sign up. Once signed up, it sends you an email that says "congrats! We'll be in touch with errands for you within the next few weeks." About a month went by, & I then get an email that says "for $50, you can be background verified, and you'll get up to 244% more errands than those without a background verification." It makes sense, but at the same time, if this were really the only way more or less to receive errands, they should just advise you that your charge is $98 up front. Because I chose not to do the background verification, I have not gotten one single errand since I signed up, it's been about 5 months now.

    Pros

    It's easy to change your schedule as required. You meet some really interesting people in the process and can learn new skills along the way. The payment process is smooth as clients pay you direct. Depending on your skills, you can make a good hourly wage including tips in the $20 to $25/hour neighborhood. The biggest thing to hurt your income are periods of low demand and competition between other Errand Buddi's. Overall Errand Buddi is a decent part time income for someone who already has another job. My bank account has gone up nicely from some part time jobs.

    Cons

    You are an "independent contractor" translation; You have no health/retirement benefits, labor protections, worker's comp, unemployment, minimum wage etc. You are your own business and no taxes will be withheld from your pay so it's up to you to do what you need to do with the tax man.
