    Prices not being shown to potential clients

    I have used TT for years and even though I have had my reservations, the site has been good to me and meets my needs. Recently, Thumbtack has taken turn for the worse in following its own refund policies and responding to inquiries …

    I've been using Thumbtack for many years and it was great experience. But recently I feel like something changed and the Thumbtack cares about money only. I've submitted refunds for leads which are clearly fall under refund policy. …

    Rate Clients
    Why doesn't Thumbtack allow customers to be rated? I've received an unwarranted review and now I live in fear of my clients. Uber figured this out years ago but if you don't allow both sides to rate each other, you create a lopsided…
