We're passionate about connecting people ready to work with people who need work done. As Airtasker continues to grow it's important that the community follows guidelines that reflect our values and standards of behaviour.

4. Pricing and payments

To ensure a safe and rewarding environment for all members of the Airtasker community, it's important to understand how pricing and payments work.

  • 4.1 No partial payments

    Any offers made on your task should be for the full scope of the task. When you accept an offer, that is the final amount that you're obligated to pay and there are no additional fees. Tasks offering partial payment, including sales and commission based tasks, are not permitted and will be moderated and/or removed.

  • 4.2 Airtasker Payment Account

    Cash payments are not supported on the Airtasker platform. When an offer is accepted you will need to add funds to the task, which are securely held in an Airtasker Payment Account until the task is completed. The Airtasker Payment Account ensures your funds are held safely until the task is finalised.

  • 4.3 Accurate banking details

    To provide seamless transaction of funds to your Tasker, please ensure your credit or debit cards details are valid and up to date in your Payment Settings.

  • 4.4 Payment with VISA or Mastercard

    All tasks must be remunerated via credit or debit Mastercard or VISA card. Cash or cash equivalent payments are not supported.
