This. You should do unlimited revisions only if you’re a high-level/Pro seller.

What? Why? You shouldn’t do them, period.

Nope.

Still far too risky.

Unlimited is NEVER a good idea.

I would never put them myself either but it would be fine to put it as a formality, in my opinion, when working on a large project.

A customer who puts a large sum of money forward is looking to be seriously satisfied with the completed work. It’s not going to turn into a hotbed for overworking/abuse like it happens with 5$ gigs. And there’s always CS if that happens. Again, it’s a formality. Most Pros I’m seeing right now put it in their premium package.

Nope, still not going to agree with unlimited.

1 ) Do you offer unlimited revisions, 100% money back guarantees, or 100% satisfaction guarantees? DON’T. These are never a good idea. The first two imply that you’re not confident in your work, and all three attract scammers.

*Exception!*
  • The only exception to this “no unlimited revisions” rule is if you have rock-solid, ‘fool-proof’, written, detailed measures in place to protect yourself from both scammers and Fiverr itself. See (FAQ) 1, 2, 3. If you do go this route, only offer unlimited in your highest package, and make the cost enough that it would cover a potential 50 revisions. The drop-down menu for revisions goes from 0 to 9, which should normally be plenty for any gig.
  • When a large and multi-million-dollar business offers money-back guarantee, it’s because they can afford to absorb the cost of a returned good. Freelancers can’t afford to risk loosing a large sale for work already done to the whim of a dissatisfied client. Besides, Fiverr already has a refund system in place, so you don’t need to include it.
  • While I agree that aiming for 100% satisfaction is great, there are too many witnesses and stories where offering ‘guarantee’ has forced cancellations. If you want to put this in, be very careful of your wording, so that there can be no loophole.

Maybe the next myth debunking video could include something like that. 🙂

Or whether unlimited revisions helps for orders, and if so how much. But even if it helps, one person asking for a 50 revisions is going to make it not worth it anyway.

And it’s more complex I think than whether having “unlimited revisions” helps. Some people put “unlimited revisions” as one of the listed benefits in the gig description but only put unlimited in the premium package - and others put unlimited on all the packages. One of the top selling gigs has unlimited revisions in the premium package. Also even if having unlimited revisions helps get orders, it might not get the most revenue (which is why Pro gigs won’t have it). Also it doesn’t mean that having a limited number of revisions is worse. It could just be that having enough revisions is better than none at all. It’s also complicated by packages - what’s the best number of revisions for each package? I think a certain number of revisions will actually be better for orders than unlimited and also prevent you having to work potentially forever (or eg. >=40 revisions) on one order.

My friend and I once made a site for an established international organization. It was an expensive project, the client was recommended by another friend as “very reasonable people”. I was lucky to do the design and be out. My friend stuck with them for 4 years rewriting the code over and over because unlimited revisions were a part of the deal.

At some point he told me he suspected they were trying to deliberately drive him insane to get a discount. It’s not a “formality”. There are people who will take full advantage of the “forever” you promise them.

Well, I just checked what @mattboa said about pros - and there they are, offering unlimited revisions on their premium packages. I sincerely hope they’ve put a limit on when that stops …

Only some Pro gigs have it in the Premium package - it might be a low percentage and depend on the type of service. It seemed from when I just checked that the ones with quite a few reviews already don’t have it. But that was just a quick look at them.

Myth 10: Message established sellers for work. They’d love to share some with you.

After they politely ask to be left alone and don’t block/report you, don’t forget to go on a long diatribe about your dire financial situation and all the family members you need to feed. Send 10 messages minimum, one after another.
