The Request a Quote feature allows Yelp users to easily message a business or multiple businesses in order to compare different offerings on Yelp. When a Yelp user opts in to get “competing quotes” from multiple businesses, the Request A Quote message can become a Nearby Jobs offer that other business owners in the area can respond to. Nearby Jobs is a paid-only feature that allows you to access a feed of available jobs in your area and choose the jobs you want.
Please note that you can have the Request a Quote and Nearby Jobs feature enabled at the same time for your business. Request A Quotes appear directly in your Inbox while Nearby Jobs will appear in the Nearby Jobs section until you reply to them. Nearby Jobs you have replied to will move into your Inbox.
Disabling messaging on your Business Account only disables users from being able to contact your business directly and doesn’t affect your ability to see the available Nearby Jobs in your area.
