Build a detailed profile
Your profile is a representation of who you are. Having a genuine and descriptive profile builds trust between members, meaning a higher chance of Posters wanting to assign you. It’s a good idea to have a bio, a profile picture that shows your face, badges, and a portfolio. Check out our full article here for more information on how to create a good profile.
Set up task alerts
A task alert is a notification about a recently posted task you may be interested in doing. By setting up and optimising your task alerts, you can easily view tasks that are within your interest and skillset and place an offer right away. For more information on how to do this, click here.
Fill out your information
You can only begin to make offers once you’ve filled out certain information in your profile, like your bank details, mobile number and billing address. Make sure this information is accurate so you can promptly receive payment when you complete tasks! Be assured that all this information is secure and not publicly accessible anywhere.
Be aware of the Community Guidelines
You’ve agreed to these guidelines by creating an account with Airtasker, so it’s important you understand how they can affect you. The guidelines will help you with the dos and don’ts of making offers, what types of tasks we support, and what type of comments you can make.
Think about your offer
Look closely at all of the information on a task to make sure that you can do it. Check the description, date, price, location and any attachments. Once checked and you're confident that you can fulfil the task, go place an offer! For tips on how to make a good offer, see our article here. You should also be aware of what to look for when you make an offer, as explained in this article.
Don’t forget to request payment
Once you’ve completed a task, you need to request payment. If you don’t request payment, the Poster can’t release it to you.
