Why did Airtasker develop the Instant Claim feature?
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:
- Feedback showed us that task descriptions can often lack the detail and clarity Taskers need to make an accurate offer and do a good job.
- Our own research showed us that Posters often underpriced their tasks by up to 20%.
- We heard that leaving comments to get more details could be slow and repetitive. This can add up to 7 hours to the time it takes to get assigned. This often led to getting assigned to several tasks. That caused clashes with other scheduled tasks and forced cancellations.
- Having to wait for Posters to pick their Tasker could get frustrating. This isn’t surprising – having to make several offers to get assigned to 1 task isn’t ideal.
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.What is the difference between an instant claimable and a normal posted task?
