It is really really unfair and crazy pricing. I am general contractor, before new price policy I spend almost $24 for home remodeling and general contractong leads/quotes, now thumbtack have charge me $75 for each! A lot of customers on thumbtack have geting only advice and info from pros, no any work, some of those is same pros that post a job to find out pricing with different IP and no any project but thumbtack have charge me $75 for it if the say just “hello” it is unbelievable !!! Some responded me when I sent my quote over that: “ I love chat with you?” And never responde my messages again but thumbtack already charge me, what do you think guys?!!! Listen this one: some one responded my quote and said: “hi, when are you available?” Then I was try to reply but it was totally gone! I mean thumbtack system couldn’t find it because he canceled they post, but thumbtack already charged me, I call them to clime refund but they told me; no because he can contact you by the phone with access to your profile!!!!!! And never called me or message me, never. Someone els is on wrong way, but I should pay thumbtack. I am totally agree that thumbtack is just thinking and looking just earning more money. If pros leaved thumbtack, it gone in a bit but they are making work harder and harder for all of us pros! Now it is most expensive than other similar. Every few months they are changing pricing policy and we feel never stability. I sent a sentence “ please dont response to this email if you are not interested or you have only question or you want keep me only in your mind for future because if you say hello thumbtack will charge me $75” And never I can’t follow up with this customers again...! I hope they turned back to the same way as before. The worst things is when you want send your quotes, you don’t know how much they will charge you because they have charge you according their methods and evaluate same post, but end of week you see few hundred dollars taken from your bank accounts. It seams you go to Walmart and takes several cloths without price lable, then when you go to checkout, you find the price of all items then but you can’t say “oh I don’t want them” because you already have them in your cart.
