A good offer must be in line with our Community Guidelines and should be a fair amount for a Tasker to complete a task. If you make an offer that is unusually low compared to the Poster’s specified budget, you'll be prompted that the offer can’t be submitted until a fair amount is submitted.
As a Tasker, your offer must reflect the amount you expect to receive once you complete a task and shouldn't be a rate of charge (per hour/day/unit, etc.).
Although offers must be for the entire amount, we do allow specific exceptions of the following:
- Disposal fees: the cost of disposing of items legally at a designated waste or dump station.
- Materials to complete the task: the cost of buying material to complete the task, where the Poster keeps the material and end product after the task is complete, e.g. wood for building a shelf, fabric for making a costume
- Items purchased on the Poster's behalf: the cost of buying items that the Poster keeps after the task is complete e.g. groceries and shopping.
If there will be any additional costs during the task, please make sure to notify the Poster first. Once agreed that the additional costs are reasonable, the Poster can reimburse you directly.
Please be transparent about your offer from the start, as this helps build trust and creates a better experience for all members. When you make an offer, be detailed in your comment about why you have offered that amount.
Things to consider when deciding on what price to offer:
- How far away is the task? Will I need to offer a higher price to cover my travel costs?
- Does my offer reflect the total amount I’m happy to receive for completing the task?
- Will I incur any costs on behalf of the Poster that will need direct reimbursement?
