Why do I need to add a payment method to assign a task?

For the security of the Airtasker community, Airtasker does not support cash payments. Payments need to go through Airtasker Pay which only accepts Visa or MasterCard credit/debit cards.

When an offer is accepted, the funds for the task are securely held via Airtasker Pay until the task is completed.

At the stage of accepting an offer, you’ll need to add funds for payment. If your details aren’t already saved within Airtasker, you will need either a credit or debit VISA or Mastercard. 

Please be assured that your details are safe with us. Airtasker runs a secure site with a valid certificate. We are PCI compliant and regularly perform vulnerability scans against our systems.

We take our platform's security and your privacy very seriously. Please rest assured that your payment details, along with all of your other information, is handled with the utmost care at all times.
