  1. I had dropped from 100% ratings before, largely due to wrong orders. They just kept coming. It disturbed me to the extent I was thinking it could be a sabotage by another seller somewhere even though I knew it was not true. That’s how I felt at the time. Wrong orders are the most painful. And it could have been avoided if the buyer had asked questions…
  2. You have just made an amazing summary of this thread. TBH, I do not know why the system is like that.
  3. So sorry about your experiences on fiverr. There are real professionals on here though.
  4. I honestly do think more can be done by fiverr in the aspect of completion rate or order cancellation rate. Sometimes, it is totally beyond the control of the seller. Yet, S/he suffers it when order gets cancelled for no fault of hers. Something can be done…should be done.
  5. I agree with you. But here is the issue. Some gig descriptions are super clear as to what the seller is offering. Yet, you see some buyers place order, then ask you to add something you didnt mention in your order. When you remind them that will cost extra because it is not in the description of what you offer for that package, they come up with …“sorry, i have to cancel because the work is incomplete without it” Meanwhile, if the said buyer had contacted the buyer to discuss what s/he wanted, that could have been averted so quickly.
  6. It is about the best thing a buyer can do for him/herself when ordering here on fiverr. What most don’t know is that, there are people here claiming to be sellers who are actually not. how else will a genuine seller know this people - it is by chatting them up. find out if they know what you are talking about.
  7. Thing is, the charges on here are ridiculously cheap. If that’s been taken care of, is it too much for a buyer to put just a sentence forward, double-checking ? Talking about response time, I guess that’s why there are many sellers around. It’s better to wait and get thing inorder than to be hasty and miss deadline. My thoughts though. Thanks for your contribution.
  8. If I were a buyer, for instance, I would wanna be certain the guy handling my project truly knows his onions. I would wanna be sure he didn’t just “copy and paste” his gig description. I would wanna be sure he will not cost me my time. Even if I am spending 6 dollars, every cent counts.
  9. i would have loved to suggest that not all cancellations should count against the seller. Here is why… At the resolution center, you are asked the reason for cancellation. (I really do not know whether buyers are asked same questions) But if buyers are asked the same questions, and both answer are - “buyer orders services not on offee” , that kind of cancellation should not against the seller.
  10. Maybe those images need a disclaimer or a subtitle with the words THIS IS A TEMPLATE. Not to mention similar wording is in the gig description. Either way, we all get stupid orders. I have a gig video where a gun is being fired and the bullet flies, I’ve gotten one order for that video even though it’s not what I’m selling. What I do is refund, if Fiverr was fair, they wouldn’t punish us for refunds. Oh well, refund…you meant the order was “cancelled” and it counted against you? That’s being the point all day… If we can avoid cancellation, then do that. If the buyer had messaged you first before placing that order, that could have been averted. Thanks anyways for your contribution.
  11. It quite crazy how they still get sellers applying for the jobs. What I do think is that, majority of those ridiculous quotes are put up by resellers. That’s why one sees those embarrassing amounts.
