This pricing system is absolutely ridiculous, especially since there isn't even anything clearly indicating how much sending a quote will cost me. I have not been on here long, and when I started over the summer I thought it was a flat rate, and that was okay since $18 was fine for jobs I'm charging $800-$1000 for. When I'm spending over $100 in a week for jobs I'm quoting at around $650 and get no replies or any indication on whether or not a client is interested beyond "Sounds good! What's next?" that's a problem for me. I'm not sure of what the exact solution is, but that's not my job either. Until something better happens, I'll be using Thumbtack sporatically, if at all. I was excited about this service too, but not anymore.
