Mydoh Tasks

It’s easy to create tasks for your kids, track if they’re overdue and know when they’re complete. All in just a few taps.

You can select a task from a menu or create your own. They can be one-off or recurring – you choose. Just set the completion date, enter the payment amount, and you’re done.

Staying on top of tasks

You can see how your kids are doing with their tasks, if they’re on track or if they need a little nudge.

Your kids can view all their tasks, mark the ones they’ve done as completed, and see how much they can earn. This helps kids plan ahead and budget for the future – even if that’s just next week.

Learning through earning

Along with the sense of accomplishment that comes with getting paid, your kids can learn a lot. Like the value of earning money and what goes into it.

This could be a good chance to talk to your kids about earning, setting goals, and planning for the future.

A job well done

When your kids complete their tasks on time, and mark the task as completed, they’ll get paid on Pay Day.

Every Saturday, money will automatically move from your account to their account2.

A weekly Pay Day gives kids something to work towards and helps them learn about income and budgeting.

Mydoh Allowance

No more fumbling for cash. Set your kids up with a weekly allowance in just a few taps.

Whether it’s $5 or $50, a weekly allowance is another great way to get kids thinking about budgeting and managing their money at an early age. You can adjust the amount whenever you need to.

Set an allowance that’s right for your kids

A 10-year-old kid and a 15-year-old kid have very different needs and expenses. How much you give your child for an allowance is up to you2.

You can easily set an amount to suit the stage your kids are at. Tap on Weekly Allowance, set a payment amount, and hit Save. Simple.

Automatic payment

Payments are sent automatically from your account to your kid’s account. The money is available right away for them to spend or save for later.

Like tasks, getting paid an allowance on a weekly basis can help kids plan their spending for the next week and beyond.

Keeping track is easy

You can set an allowance at any time, and your kids can see what’s coming into their account.

Tasks and Allowance are two ways for your kids to earn and learn about money. You can opt for one or the other, or both. Whatever works for you and your kids.


As a parent you can set up a weekly allowance for your child. This is not associated with tasks or task completion.

Tasks, on the other hand, are specific jobs/chores you can create and assign to your kid(s), and pay them in return for completing them. We believe paying for completed tasks can help kids develop a sense of respect for earning money.

Tasks and allowance are two different ways of paying your child. It’s up to you how you want to do it. You can opt for either/or do both!

  2. Choose a task category or customize your own.
  3. Provide specific details and mark it as a one-off or recurring task.

Your child will get paid for their task(s) on Pay Day, which is every Saturday. We believe not being paid for a task as soon as they complete it mimics real life pay days and will also help teach kids better budgeting during the week.
