We balance the needs of the customer and the needs of the professional.
Up to 12 professionals can bid on a job request, depending on the service. This gives a great amount of choice to the customer while also capping the number of competing service providers to a limited number - increasing the chance of winning that business.
We also send through the first bids to the customer. By using a first come-first bid approach we are acknowledging the service providers who are actively working to win new business while also shortening the turnaround for customers from request to bid.
In this, we all succeed together.
Note: the amount of professionals you bid against will vary greatly depending on the services you offer and your location. To determine how many professionals you've bid against, simply visit your Bid Insights after sending a bid.
