Cancelled tasks will decrease your completion rate, in cases where you have been found to be the reason for the cancellation. However, if you are not the cause of the cancellation, it won't affect your rate. This is why it is required to always enter the correct reason and leave a comment.
Before requesting a cancellation, consider the following points that can affect your profile:
- The impact on your reputation as a reliable Airtasker user: Cancelling can negatively affect your completion rate, making it harder for you to be assigned to tasks.
- Limitation or deactivation of your Airtasker profile: Repeatedly cancelling tasks can result in your Airtasker account being limited or deactivated. See more details here.
In addition to the impact on your profile as a tasker, you should also consider the following:
- Fees for processing cancellation
Cancellations create an administrative overhead for the community. As such a fee of 10% of the task payment (to a max of $20) fee may be applied when processing cancellations.
If applicable, this fee will need to be paid by the Airtasker member responsible for cancelling, as indicated through the cancellation reason.
