I wonder why I never had a rate tip?

I wouldn't want them, because my hourly rate is my current hourly rate and that's it - end of story, I never bid anything other than my profile rate, but seriously, am I the only one who is spared, or do you have to be kinda special to get them?

 


I remeber I got one when I was new here, but can't remember seeing any rate tip for any job I've applied to for the last 2 years. But I also agree with you, don't need it anyway.

Scott, you should send that rate tip to the clown you referenced with the $2 p/h job.

I see them often, I never follow them. I sometimes bid a little above my profile rate, depending on the nature and scope of the work. Maybe that attracts them.

I want to say that I get them on over 50% of projects. They are trivial to disregard and they don't auto populate in the rate box. I generally just smile when I see them. For me they tend to equate closer with local projects than UW ones. However, this rate was just too special not to share.

Thanks, Scott!

I sent it to the team to be looked into further. Robot Happy
