Why do I need to pay upfront?

Toptask asks you to pay upfront in order to avoid unnecessary exchange of personal data, as well as to protect the interests and privacy of both you and the student.

Do I need to pay VAT?

Yes. VAT is included in both the transaction fee and the admin fee.

What are the service and admin fees?

Toptask charges a small service fee. A percentage of this fee is invested into a scholarship program to encourage the underprivileged to access university.

Admin fee covers all transaction costs such as PayPal.

How do I pay the student?

Payments are processed by PayPal and Braintree. The transaction will be taken from your account once you have accepted a student to hire and the student gets the money once the task is completed.
