I REALLY don't like the new monetary system Thumbtack rolled out. It's terrible and there's no understanding as to how much I'm going to get charged. It makes me quote fewer jobs because I could end up getting charged $60 for something that I end up not getting (has happened multiple times already). I would love to see Thumbtack go back to the credit system, at least then I know what it's going to cost me up front. I also really don't like instant match. What a waste of time, why would I want a completely vanilla and stale message that doesn't accurately represent the cost of the job to go out to a potential customer? Thumbtack has lots of issues and if it keeps going this direction, I see myself using it less and less. Not much use for a professional service where the people running the site are the only ones making real money.
