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.

Think about how much time you're expecting the task to take, and what is a fair hourly rate for what you need done.

You can discuss a price with the Tasker based on both of your expectations, by using the comments feature on the task before assigning.

If you're not sure where to start, we have some resources that can help you. Please find your country below for specific suggestions for your area.
