Clients are now able to give gratuities to their Taskers on the platform.
How does tipping on TaskRabbit work?
Clients can add a gratuity to the final invoice once the task is complete via the TaskRabbit app, their email receipt or on the TaskRabbit website. Tips are calculated on the Client’s total invoice, not the the Tasker’s take home rate.
How will I receive my tips?
Tips will be included with the hourly earnings and reimbursements from your Client as one lump sum, if awarded within the 24-hour invoice window. Tips awarded by your Client after 24 hours will be deposited as a separate transaction and you will be notified of the payment by the the Customer Support team.
Is there a service fee on my tips?
No. There is no service fee on tips and the full amount of tips from your Clients go to you.
Do I have to pay taxes on my tips?
We encourage all Taskers to follow the tax laws that apply to them as independent contractors. Gratuity history is available for download, along with your entire transaction history, in your Tasker profile.
Can I still accept cash tips?
We strongly suggest all tips go through the platform in order to protect the security of the transaction. If your Client offers you a cash tip, we encourage you to confirm that your Client is offering a gratuity, as opposed to paying for your hourly rate, as well as recording a history of the transaction in the chat thread.
Can Taskers solicit or ask for tips?
You’re an entrepreneur, so it’s up to you, but soliciting gratuity from Clients may create an awkward experience that could prevent you from getting a tip. TaskRabbit ensures Clients have multiple opportunities to leave a tip via the app, website, and an email once you submit your hours.
Is the Client required to leave a tip?
No. Gratuities are solely at the discretion of the Client.
If my Client’s credit card is declined, will I still receive any gratuity they awarded me?
No. In the event of a credit card decline, TaskRabbit will typically ensure you are paid for your time spent completing the task and any verified reimbursements. We will not pay out for any tip or gratuity the Client added.
