There are 3 types of tasks in Paymo:
- Time based
- Flat rate
By default, tasks inherit their billing type based on the project. This mean that:
- For a Time and materials project, all tasks will be time based.
- For a Flat rate project, the task type isn’t relevant, because a flat rate project cost is independent from tasks, so tasks are marked as non-billable.
- For a Non-billable project, all tasks will be non billable as well.
NOTE: You can change the billing type of tasks only for Time and materials projects. This means you can have a time and materials project and have time based, flat rate, and non billable tasks in the same project.
In order to have flat rate tasks, you need to: set the project to Time and materials → Set the billing priority to tasks → Change the task billing type to flat rate.
