Workaway is primarily for cultural exchange or learning new skills and a way of making new friends.
If a host is looking for help with a business or business activity, they may offer payment to ensure that they are meeting the minimum wage requirements of their country.
Remember you will need the correct visa for any country that you visit.
Where a host is offering payment this will be clearly marked on their profile.
