Not very user friendly but plenty of tasks to do
Great for getting extra work but the app and website could be more user friendly. The fee is on the high side too and the incentive to work more to have a lower fee is to earn $800, that is also rather high.
The reviewer stated that an incentive was offered for this review

Excellent way to make abit of money on the side
Only found out about this app recently and am really enjoying helping people out. I have done a couple of jobs now and don't plan on stopping anytime soon great app
I would give more stars however it is morally wrong to charge commissions on bonuses/tips. Given by customers. They charge both the poster and the tasker already. Just really disheartening. Also, Seems unfairly against the tasker. Why do so much work just to have the odds in the posters favour, there are so many people on tasker who try to withhold money unjustly.
Easy to use
Simple way to search for tasks, and easy to message once you find a task. Providing offers is simple, and very fast. Highly recommend to others out there. Always communicate with each other.
Great idea but …..
Well I have to say it’s a great idea , but I am finding the app/ site a little hard to navigate as a tradie time is money, so spending excessive amounts of time trying to sort & submit for tasks and the percentage that you take is perhaps a little more than it should be
Would recommend for everyone to use!
It is really easy to find quick jobs as they pop up every few minutes, so its a very active platform. It can be hard to narrow down your search to a task your specifically after. The website needs improvement on being user friendly, as it can be tricky to navigate through tasks, offers etc. It can be frustrating when people include personal info in comments and they get blocked “content moderated.” A solution could be telling the poster why their content is moderated e.g. mobile number or website shared (as many don’t understand this feature).
So overall it is a very beneficial platform! Some tweaks just need to be made :)
Underpayment and bottom feeding is getting worse, fees have become too high. Platform is trying to be too many things
What airtasker is good for
- Delivery tasks
- Last minute situations (eg, I need help at an event for 2 hours urgently)
- Basic manual labour tasks (eg, basic gardening and weeding, lawn mowing)
- Supplement income
What airtasker is not for
- As a main income
- Complex trade tasks that require sighting the job prior to beginning work (It makes no sense whatsoever to take payment prior, it also makes no sense to take 30% or even 20%... corners will need to be cut somewhere leading to subpar quality work)
- Complex jobs from pro...
The perfect self employed app
Easy to apply for work or to list work to be done .has work catorgerys an distance ( for current lockdown ) .at end of work u give buyer a review an seller gives a review ..
Handy service but far to expensive
- Airtasker is a really handy service.
- App is great to use and easy to navigate.
- As a qualified licenced tradesman the fees make it hardly worth doing jobs. 22% fee is unjustifiable in any circumstance IMO.
The platinum teir fee of 12.5% should be standard across the board. ...
Expenses fees and high competition resulting in well below average industry pay
If you're happy to take the hit on income to help advertise your business then airtasker can be useful.
Would not recommend long term. Far too expensive and too many non professionals working for less
Easy to use
I signed up for airtasker very easily and entered all of my details, within no time was reviewing jobs and appointed on 3 tasks.
I find the 22% fee to airtasker for new users to be a bit expensive.
Very happy with Airtasker.
Very Happy with Airtasker, I recommend it to all my Friends. There building a really good community. Airtasker offers a real chance of succeeding, in the very competitive world, Airtasker is the greatest platform that I've come across. Regarding the opportunities of such, there opened the door to the future, and a very good one at that.
Thanks Airtasker, First job, over the moon.
Attached is my best work yet, Eight Apartments on each floor, X multiple levels, I'm really going somewhere.
Commission is too high!
I like this app a lot but I find that the commission they’re asking for per job is ridiculous. Not worth doing little jobs some times as the commission just kills you wanting to do the job. If the commission was lower I think this app would be fair and reasonable.
Love this little app
This is a Great little app that is helping people earn money and helping others get tasks done in these hard times with out having the large expenses and waiting times of some businesses
Questions & Answers
Adding credit card - Too many requests. Please try again later
I'd like to hire and airtasker.
I'd like the airtasker to pickup and pay for items he needs for the task.
Is there a way I can pay the airtasker for the items thru airtasker either before or after the task
WITHOUT airtasker taking a percentage of the cost of the items?
Well no, I think that Airtasker is a broad plat form, that needs that percentage of money, to offer, all of there extra services, and you would simply pay, after the task is complete, for no confusion regarding payment, re job completion you see, thus task done, here's your money, I'm happy, and so am I, good reviews, better percentage, great, done. You may need to Have set some money aside, re task of a percentage regarding them to be able to start a job, if there, down on there economy, side of things, in order to get it up and running, but than you run the risk of possibly losing the initial.
Regards Chris O.
Hi Barry, thanks for your query. Payment for materials and other purchases on behalf of the Poster can be reimbursed directly by Posters and are not to be added to the task price. You can let the Tasker know that payment is needed upon pickup of the item. You can then arrange to reimburse them when they deliver the item to you. Please also remember to release payment for the task on the platform only after the job has been completed.
For more information about payments on Airtasker, please see:
Hope this helps!
