- One-off bookings for cleaning
- Recurring subscriptions for general house cleaning
The idea is to get you all the details you need right from the beginning and to set the price up front allowing you to instantly assign yourself to tasks. In this way, Instant Claim tasks help you to earn more by doing less.

As part of our grander mission of making Airtasker a great place to earn money, we took a long, hard look at how tasks get done. There are a few key points that really stood out: The great news is that we've designed Instant Claim to help solve all these issues in one fell swoop! We’d also like to mention that we believe in fair pay here at Airtasker. We’d like to help make sure that tasks you complete are fairly priced by weighing up against similar competitors. Instant Claim tasks are different because you’re assigned to the task as soon as you claim it. Activities eligible for Instant Claim have Posters fill out a special kind of form. This form clarifies almost all the information you’ll need to know from the start. It then generates a fair price. This is based on industry averages, data from our marketplace and advice from Taskers we spoke to. The Poster then pays for the task there and then. No more leaving comments to get answers to your questions. No more making offers and twiddling your thumbs waiting for Posters to assign you. If you’re free to do the task, simply select Claim and you’re instantly assigned - it’s yours! If you’ve claimed a one-off booking, the task then functions much like a normal posted task. So increasing the price, bonuses, private messaging (after you’ve claimed) and reviews all work like normal. If you’ve claimed a subscription, it works a little differently, because you’ve been assigned to continued tasks. Check out our article about how subscriptions specifically work here.
