I posted a job on Airtasker and someone accepted my job. Now he is asking for me to pay the 15% fee on top of what he accepted the job for. I haven't used the site before. Is this usual - my feeling is not as it says the person doing the job is charged the fee. Can I pull out of the agreement? Any help gratefully appreciated.

Lets say you advertised a job to be done and you say you are willing to pay $100 for someone to do it. If they put in an offer of  $115 then you can chose to accept or not. Once accepted the price cannot change.I would say no to them and then report them. Their opportunity to recoup airtasker fees was in the offer stage not after acceptance.
Once the task has been assigned, you will not be able to change or withdraw your offer price.

Ok great, that is what I wanted to know. He is wanting the fee in cash on top of what he accepted it for.

Yup report.  They should just state +fee or including fee in their offer.
