Want to use WordPress to create your own task marketplace like Fiverr, TaskRabbit, Upwork, etc.?
With the global shift to remote work, there’s never been a better time to help people earn money online, whether that’s a full-time income or just some side hustle money.
TaskHive is a flexible WordPress theme that makes it easy for you to launch your own online task marketplace, complete with all the features that you need thanks to its integrated plugins. Sellers can list their services for sale and buyers can also post job requests for sellers to bid on (and then buyers can choose the best offer).
Thanks to the WooCommerce integration, you can even go beyond tasks/services and also sell digital products.
