    Instant bookings update hurting my business
    This hurts us! The forced instant bookings are priced higher then the job. I was told to lower my competitive settings. I've never been charged so much for a lead. This is disappointing to say the least.

    Feedback for Customer Request Form - Seeking Help With Addiction
    As a Hypnotist, I seek leads/referrals for clients who identify as having an addiction. It seems the Thumbtack user is provided with prompted options that are limited to just working on an addiction. In the comments, they may indic…

    Refund policy question
    What is the refund policy for a lead that never reads/responds to anything? I have a lead that only contacted me. I've messaged him twice and texted him and he hasn't read or responded to anything. What can I do about that?

    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…
