Please go back to $3.33 per quote and refund if customer does not reply within two days. I am spending $10 per quote on henna quotes and it's not even guaranteed that I will get business since there are other people who quote along with me so I'm competing with others to get business. I have to respond to select quotes that have potential to be profitable after paying the $10. I do not even repond to individual customer requests anymore because this site takes away so much money that we have to pick and choose how to do business without throwing away money on an unnecessary. I do not charge my customers the fee that thumbtack charges for contacting them but if prices keep going up on quotes then I will have to start doing that. Customers are already on a budget and that's why they use this website so I don't like to increase their price either. I have been hired about 15 times through this site and I know there is a good customer base but it's just not right to charge me $8-10 per quote after a customer contacts me regarding my services.
