Some tasks may require a Tasker to purchase items on your behalf. If so, Taskers can add any agreed-upon expenses to the reimbursements section of your invoice. They should also include a photo of the receipt in your chat thread, or provide you with the original copy, as proof of the expenditure.
Please keep in mind that each Tasker will have their own personal limits for how much they are willing to spend for a task. It is helpful to include the expected cost of the items within your task description to ensure that you are matched with a Tasker who can make the purchase.
It is best to handle reimbursements through your invoice rather than in cash, as TaskRabbit will not be responsible for any disputes that arise from off-platform payments.
If a Tasker is asked to purchase items of high value, they may call into Customer Support to verify the purchase. If a task cannot be fulfilled due to the expense amount, we recommend arranging a way to prepay for the items and using a Tasker to deliver them to you. If you have particular questions about your task expenses, please chat with your assigned Tasker or feel free to contact our Customer Support team for clarification.
