@BigPun If a customer contacts you about a job that’s drastically different from the original lead, like in the example you gave, save the details and dispute the charge. You can dispute a charge by taking the following steps: 

  1. Go to your Payments.
  2. Click Help with a charge above your payment history.
  3. Choose a payment period from the drop-down menu.
  4. Select the lead for the charge in question.
  5. Click Next.
  6. Select the reason you need help with the charge.
  7. Follow the prompts to share details about the charge.

So, I JUST got a 'lead' in Opportunities for a job that's marked as 'Under $250'.

The lead costs $26.75!!!!

That's over 10%!!

And if just 3 Pros bids then TT is taking in OVER 32% of the job cost. Without the assurance that the requestor will even use ANYONE that bids.

 

Sorry, but I'm not willing to pay more than $10 for something this small.

Seriously overpriced.

And another one showed up.

Under $250 budget, but want 4 hours of photo coverage for a quinceañera with 'physical prints'.

To begin with, my quote for that would be $280 WITHOUT PRINTS. And another $70 for full digitals.

Then the 'pièce de résistance' was that the lead was going to cost $35.64, 14% of the listed budget.

Another lead that was MAYBE worth $10.

Lead pricing all over the place!

I've been using TT for a few years now, really for side work. I liked the way it used to be, before the change. Now, unless I autopay for leads I pretty much only get leads in other states! Occasionally I get one here. My main issue is, I want to pick and choose what leads I take, and it seems as though whoever is responsible for coming up with prices has absolutely NO IDEA what goes into elecrical work. A job that may take only an hour is priced at over $20 while a job that takes days is sometimes less than $10! Who makes these prices? Also, it should be required that the clients write a detailed description of the work to be done. It's very difficult, at least in the electrical field, to give an estimate with no info.

Fees

Best Answer

Really getting frustrated with how I am charged and how the fees keep changing for wedding photography.  I clicked on an opportunity and if they looked it would be 99.00 .  I thought it was a rip off at 63.00.  I have spent over 900.00 in a month.  I have 3 weddings booked.  I have a friend who works with me and she uses the same price range basically same styles .  So in the beginning of the week I had lots of opportunities.  Then by Wednesday 2.  I live by St Louis.  My friend with the exact same postings sees 10.  
 

Also getting frustrated with people being able to price shop ...9 photographers at a time at a rate of 63.00 .  When questioned a lady replied, " Well, we got you in front of them". So with no response they are getting close to 600.00 and I'm pay 63 a pop.
