Can I make changes on Instant Claim tasks?

Instant Claim tasks, known as bookings to Posters, are a new type of task to help you earn more with less fuss. If you don't already know how they work, see our handy article here.

This article has lots of useful information to help you better understand Instant Claim tasks. Here you will find:


What do I do if I want to ask the Poster questions before I claim?

With Instant Claim tasks, Posters complete a specialised form. This finds out almost all the information needed to accurately describe and price a task. It helps to reduce the time spent finding tasks / waiting on Posters and means there’s no need to comment before claiming a task.

If you still have a question that needs answering, Instant Claim tasks work like regular tasks once they’re claimed. This means you’ll be able to private message the Poster after you claim it.

But remember, if you cancel the task after claiming it this will affect your Completion Rate and reputation. This may affect how you get such opportunities in the future.


What do I do if I need to increase the price?

Once you claim the task, it works like any other regular task. This means you can reschedule, increase the price and receive bonuses like normal.

To ask the Poster to increase the price, follow the below steps:

  1. On the task, select Increase Price above the green private message button.
  2. Enter how much you’d like to add and mention why you’re increasing the price. This will then be sent as a request to the Poster.
  3. Once payment is made with Airtasker Pay the task price is automatically updated.

Find more information about pricing and payments, see our range of articles here.


What do I do if I disagree with the task price?

To help you claim tasks more quickly and earn money faster, Instant Claim prices are non-negotiable and paid for in advance by the Poster.

Our main aim was to make sure that the prices generated are fair and accurate and that these new tasks are easy to use.

If you’re not keen on a particular task, don’t claim it. At the end of the day, you’re your own boss.
