Managing your budget
To send tasks for completion, you must have money on your Toloka account (see Adding funds to your account). All payments are made in U.S. dollars. The account balance is shown in the main menu:
The green number is the account balance.
Gray indicates funds reserved for the tasks on the review.
Money on the account is spent on the following items:
Payment per task
The requester is charged a commission for using Toloka — a percentage of the cost of tasks. You can see the markup (by project) in your profile (on the Expences tab). You can see the total amount of the markup for a pool's tasks on the pool page (see Budget spent (+ markup) and Approximate budget (+ markup)).
Expenses in the requester's profile
To see spending data in your profile, go to the Expences tab. Amounts are grouped by date, project, and pool:
Sum: Black indicates the amount spent, and gray indicates funds reserved for tasks waiting for review.
Markup: Commission for using Toloka.
You can set up email notifications and get messages when you have less than 5 dollars left on your account.
