An announcement to our community:
We have heard and understood the concerns on health and earnings during this period of uncertainty, in light of that, we’ve put together a few key points to note in your daily life and while performing tasks on our platform. Aside from that, we’ll also be cutting our costs by 50% to ensure that users get what they deserve for helping others at a time that more community heroes are needed.
We’ll get through this by being cautious and responsible. Till then, be kind and help one another!

Keep in handy tissues, hand sanitizer, and practice frequent hand washing. Avoid touching your face needlessly and wash your hands thoroughly with soap whenever possible. Wash your hands as if you’ve just handled chilli peppers.
Where possible, it is advised that you keep as little close contact to others as possible, and practice social distancing at your own discretion.
While performing tasks on the platform, use in-app communications and location checks for checking in and confirming completion with other users, minimalising contact.
Have some face masks in preparation. Make sure to wear a mask if you are feeling unwell, experiencing a running nose, or a slight cough.
See a doctor if you’re showing any of the COVID-19 Symptoms via your closest GP clinics and avoid going out if you’re feeling unwell.
If you have any tasks ongoing on Outside, let us know and we’ll assist with cancellations and waive penalties.

Until we get through this, Outside will be cutting its fees by 50% (for tasks above $5) to ask users to help others with daily inconveniences.
Be safe and healthy everyone!
