Task Guidelines

All tasks must comply with applicable South African laws and regulations. Don't post anything that is not legal where you are located.

Do not post your own or any other individual's private contact details (such as full name, email, home address or phone number) in any public area of the platform. For your safety and to maintain the integrity of the TASKIT marketplace, we suggest that you only communicate through TASKIT private messaging or calling service.

Users have complete control over the final amount they wish to quote to complete a task (i.e. they may quote higher or lower than the listed price). Any comments that are considered trolling, aimed at influencing/defaming other user's bids or derogatory towards the task poster's budget will not be supported.

If you suspect a task or user who may have violated these policies, please report it to TASKIT using the "Report as inappropriate" feature (can be found both in the Task or Comments section) or Contact Us so we can review it accordingly.

Users who breach the marketplace rules may have their account moderated, suspended or deactivated.

Please read the TASKIT Privacy Policy and Terms of Use in addition to the above rules.


As engagements are agreed between you and a 3rd party of your choosing, all agreements are final and TASKIT is not responsible for refunds for any reason. If you feel you may have been the victim of a crime, document what happened and contact the police. If a crime has taken place in relation to a TASKIT transaction, provide us with a copy of the police report or guide the authorities to contact us so that we can follow up and take appropriate action.
