The old way of paying to submit a quote was good. The problem with it was, you could submit a quote and never hear a response. I think that should be the method, and the potential customer/client should be required to reply, even if it’s to say “you are not being selected.” This new system, where you get charged if you get a response is not good because we don’t know what the pricing is based off, or how much it is going to be. So I just received 3 charges on my card this week, and all were 3 different prices. One of the response was just to say “thank you but no thanks,” and that was $17, and it was after 2 weeks of submitting the request. If thumbtack is to help us, the vendors, it does not seem that way. Go back to the old pay to submit a quote method, and just make it that we are required to receive a response. But this new way is not good, and I am SERIOUSLY contemplating being done with Thumbtack, as it seems to be no benefit to us, the vendor.
