I currently don't bid anymore because I do not know, and understand, what I will pay for a bid. And when I do see a price, the price is so much that I will not make enough off of the job to do it, so I don't bid. The type of people that look for a service on TT are the type that want a deal, want to pay bottom dollar for those services and will try to talk you down. Once you commit to spending top dollar to bid a low dollar job, you will be more willing to lower your price even further so you don't lose the job so you hope to break even. So because of all of this, and the amount of other pro's bidding as well (which is way too many pro's bidding) I have opt'ed to stop bidding. TT is wanting premium dollars for bids on low dollar services. Us pro's cannot stay in business bidding this way through TT, so most of us have stopped bidding. Example of bid price: I was charged over $20 to bid, just bid no contact with the customer just to bid, and the job was not won by me and I only told them I would do the job for $100. So if I did win I would have only made $80, minus the bid charge. So $80 to do a job that is not even worth $80 for me to do. If you go back to the old way that worked for us with limiting the number of pro's that can bid, and using the old credit purchase way, it would go a long way to getting back to where us pro's can make money again, and then we might come back to TT. But as of right now, I have no plan of bidding again on TT until I see major improvements.

Okay, so how do I put things on my calendar? I have tried but I can only show the time I am available for work, not that I am already booked that day or that I am on vacation or not working? I thought that if you use the Instant Match that it would see the date of the request from a customer and look at your calendar to see if you are available? I can not update my calendar with anything other than working hours? It would be nice if I could attach my Google calendar. Any thoughts or help with this??
