The way it works is that you put an offer in a job. Note that Artasker charges the person who posts the job. You will know how much the rate is it before continueing with the gig.
The person who posted the job will usually have several offers and will choose who wins it. If they choose you, they will send a message and verify the details. You do the job, ask for payment. They send the payment which you will get in 3 to 5 days deposited in your bank account.
Then everyone must leave reviews for each other. Reviews are important because it shows other people who is reliable and can do the job.
Be clear on what the requirements are
Some tasks look simple, but when you dig deeper, it is even more necessary than the first thought. Be clear what is required for the time and effort you put in. Do not forget that some people ask for really time consuming complicated tasks.
If it’s a cleaning, gardening or similar, ask for pictures so you can see exactly what it is. A cleaning job could say that it’s just a quick vacuum and a mop, but when it happens, it has not been done for months, so a lot of extra work is required to complete the tasks.
Get photos and clarity of all that is expected before confirming.
Watch the time vs. income
Is it worth your time or would you be better doing something else in this period? Some tasks may seem easy but could take up way more time than expected.
Weigh up the time you will take to perform a particular task with the amount you will receive. There are many well-paid options, so do not accept low payers.
Be aware of the rate
There is a paid rate in Artasker on everything you do. Be aware of this when calculating your job offer. Many service providers have been trapped with that in the past. Pay should be clear before making your offer.
If you say you’re going to do something, do it and do it well. Not met tasks will affect your score. Positive reviews and good will are everything on Airtasker.
What can I do in Artasker?
When I joined for the first time to test it years ago, I did some jobs. This week, I opened it to try again. So far, a cleaning job, move garden mulch and posting bulletin board are confirmed with other job offers to confirm.
I was surprised by the amount of work on Airtasker locally and remotely. The remote work I found requires more time to find the gigs, while the local jobs have generally been confirmed within 24 hours.
