@mariaandskip I see that you currently are promoting for Finish Carpentry but not the other categories that you offer. Due to this, the leads you get for those other categories may not always be in line with what you offer or nearby, but you'll always be able to choose to accept or decline the lead. Same goes for those jobs that you'll see in your Jobs tab that you can pick and choose from, which will soon have the option to sort by distance.
How do I get thumbtack to stop charging me for leads that I did not chose? Charging me for a lead that I do not want even with 20% off is not a deal. I do not like the new direction that thumbtack has taken.
@mariaandskip since you have your Finish Carpentry service promoted, you told us which jobs you'll always want. That's why you get charged once a customer contacts you. Can you share with me an example of a job that you got charged for that you didn't want? Was it outside of your preferences?
Just stop charging me for leads I don't want. I do NOT want every lead that you send me even if it is in my work preference. I don't want to spend 1 1/2 hrs driving to Miami. I do not want to contact someone who is far away. I do not want to spend $75 for a lead that wants a bargain basement price, I don't do bargain basement quality work. In my profile, I requested jobs within a 50 mile radius. I'm getting job notifications that are 4 and 5 hrs away, Cape Coral, Ft. Myers, Lehigh Acres.
I used to recommend you to a lot of people, now I do it with warnings
So true about TT making a policy and sticking to it. Not pick/choose which leads to credit. Speaking of credit, I don't understand why we receive TT credits, instead of refunding our credit cards? We aren't using the credit system anymore, so refund us via the credit/debit card that we have on file. Majority of the Pros will appreciate that instead of granting "x" amount of $$ in credits.
