I wanted to add something to my previous review..
Firstly, I do still believe Thumbtack creates Fake Requests!
Okay, so i did finally get hired by someone (we have an appointment), keep in mind this doesnt mean i will actually do the job, i.e. many others "hired" me only to cancel the app. just before.
But! Thumbtack will not let me click Hired.. says i must wait the full 24-72 hours before i can mark myself as Hired.
This means 4 other Professionals will be allowed to bid & spend money for nothing!
Thumbtack wants that money!
I have wondered before if this is what was happening to me when bidding ( was someone else already chosen..? )
Now i know the truth!
Its not okay!
Once someone is hired they should close the request.
They want as much $ as possible for each one..
Oh, within minutes the amount of credits needed to bid on one job went from 3 then to 4, now it cost me 5 credits & this just happened today!
