FAQs

How do I create an account to post or bid on tasks?

You can sign up for your free account here which allows you to post new tasks and bid on existing tasks.

Why do we ask for your PayPal email address?

When bidding on tasks and your bid is successful, 7.5% commission of the winning bid value is payable, by the winning bidder only, to Task Junkies via PayPal.

When posting tasks, you may choose to pay the bidder in cash, in which case you do not need to complete the PayPal email. However, if you want to pay the bidder using PayPal, either enter your PayPal email address when you register or return to the My Account section later.

Note: Task Junkies never ask for your PayPal password and it will only be requested by the official PayPal gateway. If you don't have a PayPal account, you can sign up here. Giving us your PayPal email address does not allow or authorise us to take money from your account automatically. Any payments have to be made and authorised by the PayPal account owner.

How do I post a new task?

Once you are logged in, go to the Post Task page and fill in all the required details about your task, then press the Save button. Your task will automatically be posted to our site.

How do I bid on a task?

You can browse through all the tasks posted on the site to see if there is one for you. Once you are logged in to the site, when you click open an active task, you will see the option at the top to place a bid. Fill in your bid details, confirm your bid and then wait to see if you are successful with it.

How do I update my account details?

You can update all your details by going to the My Account page.

Why do bidders have to pay Task Junkies commission?

We operate by allowing people to sign up to the site for free and posting their tasks for free. All we ask for in return, from the winning bidder only, is a small commission from the winning bid to allow us to continue running the site. We keep this seperate from paying for the tasks to allow our users to pick the best way to pay each other as some businesses might prefer to issue invoices.

Where do bidders complete commission payments?

You can complete your outstanding commission payments on the My Funds tab, within the My Account section. All payments will be listed in the Payment History section and outstanding commission payments will be marked as 'pending'.

How can I stay safe on the site?

As with any online platform, it is extremely important that you use common sense and consider your safety when performing tasks or having your tasks performed.

Please ensure that you consider all of the following tips when arranging to meet other Task Junkies users at all times:

  • When possible, select a verified user.
  • When possible, meet in a public place.
  • If the task involves someone visiting your home, or visiting someone's home, consider:
    • Have a family member/friend with you;
    • Let family/friends know the name/address of the person you are meeting;
    • Carry a mobile phone;
  • Trust your gut instinct.
