Like many others I use your services way less because it's become way too expensive. I offer tutoring and translation services. I feel fine being charged $10 for a tutoring job when I am hired, but when people are just sending you an email to ask a question before they select among several people and in the end I'm not hired, that's when it gets hard to swallow. Now you're kind of "scared" of answering a request, you've made us calculate the risks of offering our services when it should never be the case. Now I haven't been able to answer ANY of the numerous translation services requests I could have done because you charge $17, no matter the amount of words implied. When I receive a request for less than 400 words and you charge $17 when my hourly rate is $33, I let you do the maths to realize that it's not worth it. AT ALL. Because of your new pricing, I get way less customers through you. You will kill your own business model if you keep pricing like that. I started using Thumbtack in 2014, I think the credit pricing was fair.
