How do I know how much to pay for a task?

When you post a task, we ask you to set a budget to indicate how much you would like to spend. This amount is simply a starting point and from here, Airtaskers will make an offer on your task for an amount that they believe reflects the time, skill and work required to get your task completed. 

You can discuss a fair price with the Tasker based on both of your expectations, by using the comments feature on the task before assigning.

If you're not sure where to start, follow our below steps:

  • Review the price guide which lists approximate hourly rates for various task categories.
  • Think about how much time you're expecting the task to take, and what is a fair hourly rate for what you need done.
  • If you're not sure on an hourly rate or how much time it will take, you can set a starting rate at £15 an hour and let our community of Airtaskers help you find the right price.

You can also look at other similar tasks under Browse Tasks before making or accepting offers.
