I've been using Thumbtack for several years and have spent several thousand dollars and have made several thousand more. I started spending much less after the pay-per-quote option was eliminated. I've just been really picky about the jobs that I still quote and the only way for me to discern whether the request is worth quoting is the budget listed. I'm pretty sure from reading several other opinions on this that most other pros feel the same way. Instant Match wasn't received with open arms by the pros who pay the salaries of Thumbtack employees and this trainwreck of an idea will be my last straw, if it's not reconsidered. I've heard many, many pros say the same thing. I really enjoyed Thumbtack when they were more concerned with creating a platform where everyone could win. The only thing it seems that Thumbtack cares about now is that they win, which is exactly what I see making them lose in the end.
