Why do I show 90% when I always respond 100% to every request?

I may not be able to book all that request me but I ALWAYS respond to everyone.

Which part of the scoring are you referring to? When I look at your Profile I see 100% response rate.

You are showing 100% (rate) Within a few hours (response time). You may have seen: 90% (rate) Within an hour (or half hour, under half hour, etc) So what that would mean that 90% of the time you respond within an hour, half hour, under half hour, etc. You may be responding to some new requests in a few minutes and other times it may take you longer -1/2 hr, hr, etc. So your "rate" is a % of the time it takes you to Respond to a request. It doesn't mean that you are responding to only 90% Of your requests.

Example: Much of the time I will show 100% within an hour, 1/2 hour or few minutes. When a potential new customer (or even a repeat) sends me a request at 9pm, 10pm, midnight or 1am, my computer is shut down and I am sleeping so I don't check rover until 5:30am the next morning and reply no later than 7am. Then it may show 90% within an hour or couple hours. I hope that makes sense.

In my profile I state the hours of drop/pick up are 7am to 6pm. Any inquiries after 7pm will be responded to after 7am the next morning. Unfortunately most new to rover customers don't read profiles.
