What is LaborMe?We are a peer-to-peer mobile application platform (available on android and iOS) that connects people (customers) who need errands and tasks done to interested nearby Taskers who have free time on their hands and the ability to complete these tasks.
Who can use LaborMe?Anyone, everyone. LaborMe is free for everyone to use. All you need is an android or iOS device and mobile internet connection. You can be both customer (post a task) and tasker (who earns by completing tasks) with one account registration.
Do I have to download 2 separate apps to use as both customer and tasker?No. You can use the same account on the same app as both customer and tasker. And that means you can post a task and bid for a task on the same app and account.
In which countries is LaborMe available?We are currently only available in Singapore but our eyes are set on expanding into the regional market in the near future. Keep your eyes peeled!
Are there any membership fees?No. Use of LaborMe is free. You only need to pay your tasker when your task has been completed.
Who is going to complete my task?LaborMe is a peer-to-peer community. When you post a task, interested Taskers from our community will bid for it. You can then choose to award the task to one of these Taskers based on bid price or reviews from other members of the community.
Are Taskers employed by LaborMe?No. LaborMe only acts as an intermediary platform which connects you with available taskers. Taskers work on a freelance basis and are not employees of LaborMe. We vet through all our tasker applications through interviews and / or ID verification to ensure the safe, secure and integrous experience we aim to deliver.
How do I register?Anyone can register on the app. Registration is a simple 2 step process and can be completed in less than 2 minutes. Simply download our application on Google Play or the iOS App Store and fill up the required fields.
What information do I have to provide to register?You will be prompted to provide your email address, create a username and password, as well as provide your mobile number for verification. If you wish to become a Tasker and earn with us, you will need to provide your ID information as well as bank account details so we can pay you.
Why do i need to provide my mobile number to register?Your mobile number is required as part of a verification process to maintain the integrity and security of the service. We will never give out your mobile number to anyone outside of the purposes of the app.
How do I become a Tasker?Becoming a Tasker is easy. All you need to do is sign up on the app you can start bidding for tasks immediately. No need to wait for approval or long administrative processes.
Is there a verification process? Who needs to be verified?All Taskers will need to go through a verification process where we evaluate the information submitted by them and assess their skills and suitability for the services they intend to provide. Customers will not be required to verify their profiles but have the option to do so if they wish.
How many levels of verification are there?There are 3 levels of verification:
- First level, default status.
- A tasker profile displaying this status has not had his/her profile verified by our community managers.
- Taskers with this status will still be allowed to bid for tasks. The system, however, will not automatically assign them to auto-accept bid tasks. Customers should only select Taskers with the “Not Verified” status at their own discretion.
- Second level of verification
- Once the required identification information (scans of Identity Card or Passport) have been submitted and approved by our community managers, Users will be assigned this status.
Verified in Person
- Third and highest level of verification
- This status is awarded to Taskers who request to be invited for an in-person verification at our head office.
Why get verified?LaborMe endorses each verified tasker as a legitimate user that has been identified and is contactable. Getting verified improves the credibility of Taskers and increases their chances of being selected.
While Customers don’t need to be verified, a Customer with a verified status would likely receive more bids for their tasks as they are more likely to be reliable and contactable clients.
How do I become a verified Customer?You can request to be verified by going to selecting ‘Menu’, then ‘View Profile’ under your profile picture. You will find a ‘Verify Now’ button at the bottom. Once selected, fill up the required information and our team will process your request within 24 hours.
How do I know if a Tasker is verified?Verified Taskers will have a verified badge displayed next to their name on the Select Bidders list. We highly encourage you to select verified taskers for your tasks. If a Tasker is not yet verified, you will see a “Not Verified” badge. Customers should only select Taskers with the “Not Verified” status at their own discretion.
My verification status shows that it is pending, what do i do?Don’t worry! The pending status in this case would mean that your request to verify your profile is pending an approval from our team. Someone will get in touch with you soon should the need arise.
What kind of tasks can I post?We have launched with courier services and food delivery and our taskers are spread across the island to facilitate such requests. Our last category ‘Everything Else’ allows you to create tasks for anything else you need done, as long as it does not go against our terms and conditions. (See Terms and Conditions)
How much does it cost to get a task done?This will depend on how much your offer price is and the price at which interested Taskers are bidding for your task. There are no fixed fees for tasks.
