One side is strictly for students and the other side is for members of the public and businesses. UniTaskr offers a platform that allows students to find work and accept jobs. UniTaskr is built up of the sellers (seeking to provide a service they believe others may find helpful at a reasonable price) and buyers (anybody seeking to book a service or request a task at a reasonable price). UniTaskr acts as the link between these two parties.
When a buyer proceeds with a request for a service, their request appears on a job board called ‘Available Jobs’. This job board is only visible to students.
Once a service has been completed and the buyer has confirmed they are happy to pay, UniTaskr collects payment from the buyer and pays the seller.
