@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:
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.
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.
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.
