There are no set rules, but first consider the complexity of the job and amount of time it will require.
Calculating a reasonable rate can be based on averages in your service area. Keep in mind that rates vary from city to city and region to region. For a better sense of the going rate in your area, Browse other postings in our Categories section. Keep the following in mind when setting your rate
- Will the worker be making at very least minimum wage? Take into consideration the 15% Band Of Hands that is taken out on the workers side.
- What type of skills will the worker be required to have? Are there more complex skills needed, if so, you may want to consider setting a higher hourly rate.
Also note: the rate you set in your post is a starting point. Project Owners and Workers can negotiate within the Comments section of a job posting to reach a mutually agreeable rate. Hourly rate is able to be edited prior to the job being completed.
