IKEA and COLES extend partnerships with Airtasker across Australia

In a bid to potentially change the way Australians shop, IKEA and COLES Supermarkets have apparently expanded their partnership with online jobs marketplace- Airtasker. Both the retail giants are reportedly running a state-based trial in NSW, which claims to offer customers the advantage of third party service across Australia.

Sources familiar with the matter stated that in this New South Wales Trial, shoppers would have an option to use Airtasker for hiring a person to do their groceries and assemble IKEA furniture at home for them. The decision to roll out both the programs nationally may have come on the heels of its huge success in NSW trial that began last year.

Reportedly, top officials of both the companies appear highly enthusiastic about expanding Airtasker across Australia and have been quoted saying that the standout success of NSW trial has further made their partnership strong. If reports are to be relied, COLES Airtasker provides a very quick delivery facility where goods can get transported on the same day, even within few hours. In fact, through this, shoppers would also get a chance to alter any items from their list, when the Airtasker worker is at the retail store.

According to reliable sources, COLES taskers need to earn a Coles Badge for shopping or delivering groceries under this NSW trial. For getting a Coles Badge, the taskers need to fulfil some of the criteria- completing two or more tasks via Airtasker, minimum completion rate of 80%, and a star rating of 4.5.

However, under this latest national rollout program across Australia, Airtasker confirmed that bagging a Coles Badge rating is not a mandate, however taskers can still apply for the same online which would be embedded on their profile.

In case of IKEA furniture getting assembled, all that the users need to do is post a task for potential Airtaskers to know what, when, and where they want their items to be assembled, followed by a fair budget estimate for the task, cite sources.
