Thumbtack Woes

I'd love to see the following changes. Whatcha all think?

  • Figure out a way to categorize those undercutting the norms
  • Require clients to put their budget for everything and make sure they know if their budget is below the norm.
  • If a client asks for something that makes no sense or is an utter waste of time, let someone tell them without getting charged. 
  • Stop charging us for clients who never reply or start ghosting us. I'd rather pay TT a commission for clients who purchase from me rather than blindly throwing money at people who reply once and disappear. 
  • Properly categorize everything related to tech. For example, a broken screen isn't data recovery.

Re: Thumbtack Woes

In my case, as a pet sitter, I would like to see that the client HAS to fill out when they need pet sitting. I am not going to waste money bidding on something when I don't know when they need service. It should be required, or state that they are "just looking" for possible future services.

Also getting sick of getting charged for an availability check, when I reply and the customer ghosts.
