How do I know how much to pay for a task?

When you post a task, we ask you to set a budget to indicate how much you would like to spend. This amount is simply a starting point and from here, Airtaskers will make an offer on your task for an amount that they believe reflects the time, skill and work required to get your task completed.  

As a starting point consider the following:

  • How much time will it take the Tasker to complete the task and what is a fair hourly rate. We recommend $25 per hour rate as a good starting point to then multiply by how long you think it will take e.g. $25 per hour x 3 hours of work required = $75 total task price.
  • Review the price guide which lists approximate hourly rates for various task categories.

You can also look at other similar tasks under Browse Tasks before making or accepting offers.
