Adding samples during order delivery

Hello, 

I'm new to the forum, so apologies if this is in the wrong section or has been answered before. 

I am a level 1 seller, with several gigs. All of the gigs have 'live portfolio' activated. When I deliver an order, I usually click 'add a sample to gig's gallery' but to this date, nothing has been generated on my gigs. I have seen plenty of other writers with delivery samples in their gigs, accompanied with useful buyer reviews. 

I'm wondering why this doesn't work for me. As I'm a writer, I deliver Word documents. Should I include a pdf copy as well?

Short answer: Buyers can say 'no'.

Longer answer: Think like a buyer. If you were commissioning someone to write something for you (especially ghostwrite), would you want that trail? 

Question: What kind of files do you deliver? Because (from what I've seen) Live Portfolio can only take image files. (Supposedly PDFs also work, but I've never come across one.)

Thanks for your reply. 

I understand your point about the buyer's willingness to publicise the contents of their order but the question is more technical in nature.

I deliver Word documents. I know that in chat messages, Word docs don't offer a preview in Fiverr, but pdfs do, so I'm guessing that is the route to go for writers and their gig samples. A pdf could also just show a snippet of the work done and leave out sensitive content.

@imagination7413 and @jasedmf, you are both right - Word docs won't show up in the image gallery, but images and PDFs will (as long as the buyer allows the images to be used).

I write resumes, so I'll create a special image of the delivery with all personal information removed (this is to avoid accidental buyer approval of confidential documents).
