I hate the new pricing!! I'm getting charged more for quotes than I am for when I do get hired. I'm in the Thumbtack hole budget wise. I got charged $20 for two people that replied with a question and didn't hire me. I used to love using Thumbtack, but now I'm afraid to quote people for fear of getting charged $8-10 dollars each time. My hires have gone way down, and I don't know if that's because my quotes aren't getting out due to the 'pre-set budget'? So frustrating. I think that you should only get charged the exhorbitant fees if you are marked as hired - at least then you have a hope of earning more than you spend! I can't tell you how many I have that people have asked questions, I get charged, and then they don't hire. ARG!
