Can i create a sketch drawing before getting the order ?


Recommended Posts

Hi,

i want to create a gig about drawing animated characters. I'd like to keep the sketching part of the order outside the order itself.

I saw many similar gigs and often the seller invites the buyer to contact him/her before ordering, sometimes to send the buyer a pre-order sketch.

I'd like to work on the order when the basic sketch has yet been defined, but i don't understand if this pre-order work is accepted by Fiverr and if it could lead to issues with the buyer when working on the order.

In your opinion should i consider the sketching operation as part of the order, or can i create the (basic) sketch before the order starts ?

If possible i'd like to limit the amount of message exchanges with the buyer, to optimize the time spent working on the order.

Thank you

You can, but that doesn't mean you should.

A deceptive "prospective buyer" might inquire about a possible order just to get a free sketch and run off into the night. Safest policy to follow is, no money, no work.

If I were you, I'd add that to your gig price as part of the order. If there's no guarantee that a basic sketch leads to an order then you're wasting your own time. 

Thank you for your thoughts, i didn't take this risk into consideration

Got it. I've never been a seller, so this is helping me a lot to define my offer
