I am a professional photographer with a great portfolio and years of experience and I have not had one response to any of the numerous (15 or 20) quotes I made on Thumbtack. I believe it's a bogus site and I don't think that any one ever gets any work. I don't think...

Thumbtack now gives the service providers stats on who you “compete” against with regard to “bid” or “lead” “opportunities”. After receiving the last stats I worked out the numbers and here is what they show. The people that I compete against have a 6% success rate....

Thumbtack has just changed their pricing policy...the more popular a service is the more it costs. Really! So, if you offer a popular service it will cost you more. I just bid a job that the customer cancelled within minutes of my bid. Dis I get a refund - no, the...

As a professional photographer Thumbtack was a great idea and at first worked well. As time passed the company raised their prices and less clients were available. They are a consumer service based company with no concern for the professionals that make the app work! If you want to throw away time and money this is the way to go!

I hired this company Ferrari Fotos from thumbtack. The entire experience was a fraud. Photographer never contacted us. He never got us thank you cards nor had the decency to pay us back full amount for wasting our time. I believe this company has since been removed due to complaints against him.
