How Can I Set Up/Edit My Profile?
In order to set up or edit your profile, you need to go to the Walker Setting Page. You can get there by going to your My Walks page, then clicking the Gear Button on the top right corner. While here, there are three (3) main headings: (1) Walker Settings, (2) Walker Profile, and (3) Your Account.
The Walker Settings heading has four (4) tabs under it: (1) Accept On-Demand Walks, (2) Walk Price, (3) Payouts, and (4) Pause Walker Account.
Accept On-Demand Walks
This is a button that you can toggle On or Off. When on, your profile becomes visible to all potential clients in your area who want to go for a walk now. If you want to accept On-Demand walks, make sure to turn this on. If toggled Off, then you will not receive requests for On-Demand Walks, but will still get requests for future scheduled walks, which include walks one hour into the future and later.
This tab allows you to set your own walking price rate within a range of $7 up to $21. The price is based on 30 minutes of walking. So if you set your price at $7 then the client will be charged $7 for 30 minutes, $14 for 1 hour, and $21 for 1.5 hours. You can change your walk price at any time.
The Payouts tab shows you the total amount of money you have made, are owed, and have been paid out.
Pause Walker Account
If you wish to take a break from getting Walk Requests, then you can use this tab to Pause your account. It does not delete your account, and you can unpause at any time. You can keep it paused for as little or as long as you prefer.
The Walker Profile heading has five (5) tabs under it: (1) About Me, (2) Categories, (3) Skills, (4) Passions, and (5) Languages.
The about me tab is an opportunity for you to let your potential clients know about you and your services. Think of your profile as a digital flyer, and this is where you make your pitch.
We allow clients to filter their search results by the type of walk they prefer. There are four filter categories: (1) Fitness, (2) Mindfulness, (3) Knowledge and (4) Exploration. Each Walker is allowed to select up to two categories to be included in.
If you have any special skills that you wish to share with your clients, you can write them here. Skills can include any special certifications, experience, or knowledge that you may have. (Ex. Spanish Teacher, Artist, Concert Pianist, Rock Climber, Personal Trainer, Life Coach, etc.)
If you have any specific passions, you can share that here. This gives your clients an opportunity to see if you have any mutual interests.
If you speak multiple languages, you can write that here. Some clients may want to practice speaking another language, or require a Walker that speaks a language other than English.
NOTE: Make sure to hit "Save" in the top right corner of each one of screens after adding any new items.
The Your Account heading has three (3) tabs under it: (1) Edit Profile, (2) Payments, and (3) Support Center. These are the settings that show up when you first create your account (before you become a Walker).
Here you can update your Profile Photo, Full Name, Phone Number or Password. For your Profile Photo - If you signed in with Facebook or Google, you will already have a photo uploaded from those platforms. Otherwise make sure to add a visible photo of you here. This is the photo that Clients and Walkers see for you. You can change your photo at any time.
Here you can update your credit card information for when you book a walk as a client with other Walkers.
This is a link to our support center where you can have access to FAQ's, Walker "How To" Guides, and to contact us directly.
