I'm confused if I decline a job I'm still charged for the job??? Or I automatically pay for a job that I didn't accept, this platform is great for those who have $5K sitting to give away. It doesn't feel good to give away money when you need every penny...IJS
@TB since both of your services are promoted and you've let us know which jobs you'll accept ahead of time, each lead that comes in will be ones that you're already charged for but at a 20% discount.
How about this, why doesn't Thumbtack give us a higher discounted rate. For example, instead of giving 20% off why not receive 40% off for being promoted. If the client contacts you then give the Pro's 20% off. Look after the pro and actually care more for us seeing how we are the ones keeping them in business.
@TB Thanks for sharing the idea. I want you to know that we realize pros are very much an integral part to Thumbtack and it's success. I'll make sure to pass along your thoughts about a possible 40% discount.
I agree with the sentiment of paying after the promoted job is accepted. from what i can tell, often a customer is looking at several pros anyway. if i don't want to enter into a blind bidding war with the other pros for a job. i shouldn't pay for the lead.
