Taskerr – A Micro Jobs WordPress Theme

Introducing our latest WordPress application theme, Taskerr! This powerful new theme enables site owners to build their very own micro jobs marketplace. You connect people needing jobs done with others willing to do them.

This underserved niche enables any business imaginable to list their service for a fixed price (which they set). Sites like Fiverr and TaskRabbit are perfect examples of how this amazing new “gig economy” successfully works.

We didn’t forget the importance of monetization for site owners which is the cornerstone for all our themes. Easily setup pricing plans and charge sellers a fixed price for listing their services. You can also upsell with featured listings placement. Alternatively, you can take a percentage of each sale (coming soon). This allows you to easily scale your site and earnings potential while providing a useful service marketplace (percentage-based fees via escrow service will be coming soon).

Quick Overview

taskerr-single-reviews-smService Listing
Flexible and complete item details page for sellers to describe their service. Reviews and comments provide feedback and communication channels for potential buyers. People can add it to their favorites, contact the seller, or go ahead and purchase the service.

taskerr-order-stepsOrder Process
Buying services is an easy and painless process. Once confirmation has been received, the project will begin. You can edit each page and the messaging to suit your needs.

      @Dolmat, HireBee is a freelance theme (typically larger projects that are done only once). Taskerr is a micro jobs theme (small jobs that can be sold over and over).

    Can I ask what the geolocation element is like on this? Radius search? google maps in general or if it integrates with any geo plugin? Its just I am not seeing it in the demo and for a micro job/task site this would be crucial really. Looks promising for sure, excited by it. Thanks

      @allmyhoney, Geo location is not included to Taskerr 1.0. Since many people offer remote services, which is not linked to any particular location, we decided to release Taskerr without this feature.

      We will be watching for further feedback and if it will be popular, we will include this feature in a future release.

      About “geo plugin”, we don’t tested Taskerr with any, so we can’t guarantee compatibility.

      Thanks!

        Thanks for the feedback here. I do believe sites like taskrabit, thumbtack and so on are heavily location based because micro tasks tend to be carried out locally and the remote work is more project based to be honest. Getting plumbers, carpenters, gardeners seems the ideal fit for micro tasks and this is most certainly location specific. Well I will stand by to see if the location element gets some love and if so give it a whirl!

      @jamesweb, payments work already. PayPal standard is included for free and any other WordPress payment gateway plugin in our Marketplace works as well.

      What’s coming next is the ability to take a percentage per transaction and use escrow to hold the funds (vs site owners PayPal account). That’s what PayPal Adaptive Payments (included for free in upcoming release) and Balanced Payments enable you to do.

        Holding other peoples money in your paypal account can cause liabilities and tax burdens an admin wouldn’t want. I’ll prob wait for adaptive payments before I launch my site.

    I think geolocation should be included in Taskrr. You shouldn’t assume people won’t use this for local services because I think it has a lot of applications. I’m thinking about one myself but the lack of geolocation presents a problem.

      yep, thats what i said in the forum but no reply from there….;-(
      i think its necessary for an app like this, to have the geo loc. to see, whatยดs/whoยดs around you. And it would be make kin of a “double Sense”, when u turn the Taskerr Theme 180 degree, so that people could post a job that needs to be done. Like the early Zaarly or still existing Task Rabbiit.

        Is “add service” for that purpose also?

    I just want to chime in and say geolocation is a must with this theme. we need to be able to easily include jobs that are local based and not just remote. And geolocation is needed for these location based jobs.

      @jamesweb, no xml content available. Good idea though. We’ve got some general getting started articles on our docs site. Editing the theme is not recommended though. Use a child theme and/or hooks via a plugin if you’d like to change things around.

    Really well done and I’m looking forward to building something fun with this!

    A quick question with regard to “app theme” compatibility – I want to incorporate an affiliate program on our Taskerr driven site – is there a specific affiliate plugin you can recommend that plays well with your themes (or taskerr specifically?) – AffiliateWp (from Pippin W. of the Easy Digital Downloads family) would be my preference – but I see you guys have your own affiliate program, and if you can recommend a script that is tested well with your frameworks – that would save me a whole bunch of searching. Thanks again – really a great and innovative idea, and well executed as well! ๐Ÿ™‚

          David

          @gocards86, we’ve discussed this internally and decided to keep things simple for now (no custom form builder). Fiverr operates the same way.

          What sort of fields would you want to add?

          • gocards86

            I know Fiverr has similar options but I don’t wanna be another fiverr clone. I guess I thought i’d spice it up a bit add a few of my own fields. I don’t like touching code with a ten foot poll lol so being able to create your own fields with a click is nice.

            But I get where you guys are coming from. Maybe in the future

  • customer
    jamesweb

    I was just wondering if you guys ever thought about integrating woocommerce or EDD as the payments element to your themes. The reason I suggest this is because the subscription and invoicing and gateway options are of course a little more major on these plugins so it seems to make sense. Right now implementing a free plan and then say a second tiered paid plan is just a little complex especially if you would like a recurring subscription model and seems like woocommerce is major enough now and certainly not going anywhere in the future, so an integration would be pretty cool and appropriate it seems. Maybe other thing the same here not sure.

    • author
      David

      @jamesweb, yes but we’ve built our own payments framework instead. That enables developers to build and sell add-ons in our Marketplace. Both WC and EDD are great solutions though for non-AppThemes themes.

      @Ruben, this was a mistake with our marketing. The posting jobs feature isn’t part of Taskerr. It’s something that we need to discuss internally first before providing an ETA (if any).

  • allmyhoney

    Fair enough and I do understand you guys trying to grow your own marketplace, so hats off there . I assume with a little work one could integrate woocommerce with your appthemes framework – or would that even be worth it. Obviously I am talking custom development work here but do you feel this is a worth while path. The reason I suggest this is because some of the extensions for woocommerce like subscriptions etc is a very mature extension with a few years under its belt and I do not see any subscription plugin right now in the marketplace. Thanks for your time.

    • customer
      fidij

      It isn’t very difficult to integrate this with WooCommerce. You could do it yourself with a couple of plugins. Just use the subscription plugin and the groups plugin and assign posting permissions to members of the group which you assign them to after they subscribe.

      • customer
        jamesweb

        I think you’ll find recurring subscription integration, credits being created etc is alot more involved than the groups plugin here. But yes by all means what you suggest could work for a minimal level integration.
