In the past I used Thumbtack frequently. Now, I deleted the app from my phone. Before the changes, the most I ever paid for a lead was around $7 and only 5 pros could respond. That is a total of $35 thumbtack makes from one inquiry. Now, you are charging $60 or more for the same quote with no guarantee that we actually got the job. No thanks. Before the change I would say 1/10 quotes converted to a job so I was okay spending $3-$7 per quote because half of them were not even opened so I wasn't charged. Your fees have priced me out of your market, that is for sure. If you are going to charge that much you should only do so after it is marked as hired.
