When you are assigned a task that you have placed an offer on, the service fee will be charged to you. Upon completing the task, your payment, with the service fee already deducted, will be released to your bank account.
How is the service fee calculated?
Your service fee for each task you offer will be calculated according to your current tier. The service fee can range from 10 to 20% of the task price. Tax is then also added to the fee.
How can I tell what my service fee is?
When you make an offer on a task, the full breakdown of the service fee will be displayed so you can make sure the task is right for you. This will also be where you’ll see any tax payable and what tier applies to you.
You can look back at your payment history in your account at any time for a specific breakdown of the fee for each task you’ve completed.
How do I reduce my service fee?
The higher your tier, the lower your fee. To learn more about the specifics of tiers, please see Tasker tier.
How do I pay the service fee?
The fee will only be applied once you’ve been assigned to the task - if you don’t win the work, you won’t pay.
After the task has been completed and the Poster releases payment, you’ll then receive the task payment, minus the service fee.
