As a new seller, how can you avoid being scammed?


Recommended Posts

Hello! I'm new to Fiverr and how it works, so it would be extremely helpful if you could help me out with this particular doubt. I don't want to be scammed into giving away work for free or having my time wasted with people who will misuse it and not order anything, but I also don't want to be rude or end up losing potential clients who just wanted to ensure my skills are right for their project. Also, I read that one should simply ask the client to order and THEN provide any previews, so if the buyer does not like it they can cancel. But that would affect the order completion rate. I'm confused, please help.

Thank You for your time!

I am a proof reader, so when I am asked for samples of my work I have this Quick Response already to go. 

Hello, username, 👋🏻

I do not give free samples of my work. 😉

 I will be happy to send a custom offer for $5 to proofread a 300-word document for you. 😊
 
Would you like me to post that custom offer for you now? 🤔

Think positive and more forward, if you are scared to the scammers you can not do anything.

You are an artist doing portrait drawing, you described clearly what you will deliver to your gig pricing, also you have provided revisions, if they does not like your work they can ask for modifications with the 2 revisions. There is no way to work free and waste time, and cancelations. Also buyers can not cancel as they wish once the order delivered. There for no need to be with unwanted fear.

In addition to what others have said, if you don't have a portfolio with samples already, create one and upload it. For example, you can create a PDF showing some of the styles you can do and upload it to your gig, and when buyers want to see if your art is a good match for their needs, just tell them to take a look at the PDF.
