When you cancel a task, the other member will receive a request to accept the cancellation. Should they not action the request within 48 hours it is automatically accepted.
Once the cancellation is accepted your payment may be returned as Airtasker Credit by the end of the next business day. You will be able to use this right away for your next task and you won't have to wait for the bank to return your funds.
If you would rather have your payment returned to your account, please let us know. Simply respond to the cancellation email or email us with the Task URL at firstname.lastname@example.org
