I just feel like it never feels anything other than random. Back when I bought credits it quickly became not worth it to bid on bartending jobs because so many people wanted them and it was hard to get the bid in on time and it turned out many of the jobs were fake. Then when it became pay upon response, it also made me pay for people who just come on thumbtack to pump bartenders for drink recipes and amounts to purchase for their parties. I have disabled that profile because it just became a way for supposed clients to rob me. I've gotten three days of work that I paid definitely almost that entire amount of money into the system for over time. Thumbtack is fired for trying to get party jobs. For my petsitting services I do get real clients and the price I've paid for the jobs I get seems worth it. Paying $8 for a person who corresponds once and never hires me feels like a ripoff. It never won't feel like that. I don't know how to fix this. I have turned off autoquote because of the lack of control of the money going out for jobs I don't want to take or on days I can't do.
