Complaint / review text:
I have been a member of Thumbtack for a couple of years now. I repair computers of all types and networks generally for consumers and small businesses. While I do make more money elsewhere I never lose money with Thumbtack. A few hints for those who tried and did not have a decent experience. I buy the highest amount of credits as they cost less per submitted quote.
You have to answer quickly as everyone in the projected area for that customer who is on Thumbtack in there area also received the request, and from a couple of years worth of knowledge here the first 2 quotes maybe 3 are the only ones really considered.
I also was at Thumbtack when they implemented the current price model. While I do think it is a bit high for what you receive (such as credits should cost the same but only require 1 credit to send a quote rather than 2) I also do not lose money I make money it is just less than I think it should be. Although I do complain I still make money every month I just think there charges for what I make are higher than they should be for the return.
