Having read on another link, that a guy is doing loads of retail jobs, I'm just intrigued if you could make a living out of it, and if your doing retail jobs I don't see where you fit in other jobs or do I not just understand the business..

You could sit outside your local Argos and you would be first in the queue for any jobs the expert has on offer

Waste of time and space unless you are fiting them in between the school run, shopping, hairdressers etc etc

These type of jobs should attract a £25 price tag, and 7 days payment terms.

M6 is always crap, especially at the moment with all the roadworks, its pretty much all the way from Manchester to birmingham

How can you have a set price for 2 mile, guess you could use taxi rate that's about £2 a mile I thinks, but you would never get that..

I guess you could make a living out of it if there was enough volume, but is it courier work... Really?

We all have minimum charges varying from £15 to £30 and why do we have that?

The answer to that is the answer to why most of us have "retail sameday" switched off.

If you go in to your profile, click on account, then alert settings, you can select which type of texts you receive. Stops a lot of wasted texts, and wasted bids/quotes for both the courier and vendor.

Doing what Speed says also stops the work that you're not interested in from appearing in your Newsfeed and Courier Work pages, so you don't see that kind of work on the site at all.

Change your own alert settings to suit the kind of work you want to see.
