From various posts over the last few months it appears that MOST members would prefer URGENT SAMEDAY jobs ONLY.
Why have so many recently left, or stopped posting or are threatening to leave? That's all I was saying!
I agree with this the majority of operators on the site are specialist in their field and are looking for same day urgent
The influx of "same day retail " mars the effect of an efficient site, though if the rates are acceptable then I would agree that the effects are rewarding to those whom want the odd little job etc.

I have no major problem with your same day retail work, but I suspect like many others I turned off my alerts because they were too much and of no interest to me.
Granted you can now filter them out, and I have turned mine back on, but I think that the damage has been done. Admins were warned by many people but it took them too long to add that filter.
The voice of the subscribers was in my honest opinion listened to far to late, and the effects are catastrophic the site relies on subscribers and if you were to look at previous threads it would have pointed out the failing, s. A separation should have been put in place with simple filters and this unfortunately is now available but to late.

What i meant was that Shiply etc is not a trade only site, whereas Courier Exchange and mtvan are aimed at trade only. In this respect, mtvan is the number 2, can't think who else would be in the frame at the moment.
However Rapid, having read your post, I will be looking into whether it's feasible to post some of our work on some of these auction sites. We still have a problem covering some jobs (i am talking about normal sameday jobs here) and could do with another option. However, I fear the the likes of Shiply or anyvan will not produce a fast enough response... or are my presumptions incorrect?
Use the filters that are provided at the search page and it is easy to find same day and groupage also dedicated next day work at real rates
Try a test post you may be surprised, but also i would suggest that the work that is posted on the sites that are used continue as I believe that your services provide a good income for those that want the "lifestyle " type of work
