There are a lot of "Looky-Lous" out there. They are just looking and don't really have an intent on buying. Is there any way to filter these folks out? I really don't have a problem paying for connections and are serious about purchasing a service (I'm in drone aerial photography) but I've got a lot of lookers who never hire anyone or at least not in the ap. I would like to suggest that we still pay for contacts but only if they follow through and complete a purchase in the ap. I'm not suggesting only the hired pay, but am suggesting all the people they contacted and didn't win the bid pay. This would eliminate the problem of "Looky-Lous". It seems to be more realistic/fair for the business to pay for lost customer lead because they did didn't get the customer but someone else did. It really hurts us businesses when we pay for the contact and the person never purchases.

I’d like to see the charge based upon the estimate if the customer responds to us to solidify the bid, not just for contact. I’ve been charged several times for the customer asking me a question and never responding to the answer. It also doesn’t tell us if the customer hired someone else, we are just left in limbo. Someone can just put out requests and hit a bunch of replies just to charge the bidders. 10% of the bid fee would be a more realistic charge vs what appears to be an arbitrary fee. Under your current business model, I’m hesitant to bid Thanks for the opportunity for input.
