  1. No offence, but I would prefer you stop promoting my “Help I have no orders” post. I no longer standby any of the information in this post and I would delete it if I could.
  2. With all due respect, you are not looking at the big picture. The OP does not sell any kind of web design or development service. They are also a new seller (having no reviews), and this is not a standard request. Pretty much every cyber attack these days takes the form of a social engineering attack. First it will be a request for a users IP. Then when a seller provides this information, there will be another request for more sensitive information — or an invite to use TeamViewer, etc. No one thwarts a social engineering attack by first placing blind trust in a random person online who wants access to any kind of information that they have no reasonable need of. Nowhere does this seller say that they will work directly on a website for any reason in any of their gigs. If the buyer does need to whitelist an IP, they will also be able to see on their end which recent visits to their site have resulted in visitors being directed to a 403 error page. This whole situation is fishy and in my opinion, there are already enough red flags to deter most sellers working with this buyer.
  3. Yeah, there is no reason why any exchange of information like this is even necessary. I have also fallen victim to a very well orchestrated hack attempt myself of Fiverr and I’m quite security aware. None of this makes sense. Possibly the buyer is an amateur web developer and doesn’t realize that their site is not publicly viewable. However, that is their problem, not the problem of the seller.
  4. I am too. With your physical IP address people can ping your device to see when you are online and use easily available port scanning software to scan your system for vulnerabilities. After that, your device becomes easy to trace and target with all kinds of attacks.
  5. I disagree Having an empty page where you can do what you like is lovely but it can lack challenge Like playing a computer game on easy yet again. As the artist M C Wscher philosophied Limits Edges These things force you to be more creative not less! There is a challenge to finding a new effective way of selling shampoo that no one else has done (or at least not done as well as you) It is the difference between mere masturbation and the romantic seduction of a princess when you are but a mere lowly peasant. If a copy is dull to write then you are not trying hard enough! Because if you are finding it dull to write then all the customers, of your customer, will also be bored! And that does not move products! It is my job, to make all writing creative! Even if it is only in the smallest way! Because that is what will make my customer money! The vulgarity! 😱
  6. This is pretty much everybody. It sounds to me like your biggest problem is that you want to be a creative writer, but want to make bank in the meantime, by being an all-round writer for hire. As it is, you won’t find a way to reconcile these two personas. One needs to be completely sacrificed for the other to thrive. Alternatively, you need to divorce your brand personas. Keep your creative side separate from what you offer on Fiverr, or just go all in and offer creative writing on Fiverr if that is what you want to do. It’s worse than that. They took my Grandmother. I love Whitby. Do they still have the cool little fossil shop with the Brontosaurus eggs?
  7. Your buyer is basically an idiot. It sounds like they are probably reselling your service as a fancy certified translation service of their own. With a certified translation, people do receive a certificate of accuracy. However, this is only worth anything if it is also signed by a notary and/or the end client has a means of verifying your identity and credentials. Explain to your buyer that you cannot sign what they are asking, as you only sign certificates in the presence of an independent notary. This would have been something that your buyer would have needed to discuss with you before placing an order. - And is something you would charge a lot extra for.
  8. Yeah, you need to just get used to that. Don’t blame other people and risk making enemies. Do you know how much factual solutions cost? Why should anyone give you theirs for free when they have discovered them themselves? Think of things that way and you might start to see the other side. I’m only giving you advice because we are kind of local. shop1024×768 104 KB
  9. I guess us monkeys just need to hang together sometimes. 😉
  10. So why would people outsource to you? You are confusing geography and local economic advantages with professional skills. I am actually from (originally) very near you. - A place near Darlington. (You are easy to find online.) I get fewer buyers because now I live in Malta and people assume I speak English as a second language. - Yet I command a higher price than you. To be honest, I think you are expecting too much too fast from Fiverr. I’d advise you to start a blog on Steemit, Medium, or Hive.io which are all places you can earn from posting. If no one reads your posts, you are still building a portfolio of work you can direct potential buyers to. Really your objective should be to refine your writing. Alternatively, flip the coin. Don’t be the person begging others to outsource to you. Create high priced gigs and just outsource everything. A lot of people do this and it works, providing you manage that whole side of things well.
  11. Was it on your specification list to change the laws of perspective? Or did you want a render showing a child-size dining table surrounded by giant footstools? What you see as incompetence looks more to me like someone with a lot more design experience using their initiative to provide you with a quality product. LOL Ok
  12. Harsh is an understatement. In either case, you accepted Fiverr’s terms of service when you signed up to use the site. This states that orders cannot be canceled based on personal preference.
  13. // ** NO REAL BUYER cares if you have a 1 star review, as long as you stay professional in your response. If anything, it’ll stop other scammers from going to you when they see it. I would report them immediately after reading the review, that way if the scammer reports me with lies, they can see my side of the story. Don’t get scammed. Sellers hold all the cards. Scammers only have the power if you hand over those cards. Stop being so weak. No one makes TRS without dealing with a few scammers and losers. Sorry to be harsh, but if you keep acting helpless, then you are getting exactly what you deserve. So, STOP IT!! Edit: Power of saying “NO!” Yeah, maybe try selling on Fiverr and facing this situation to see how it actually goes down. 4714×49 4.7 KB 6797×232 21.9 KB 10711×162 7.9 KB 12711×165 8.48 KB 16789×214 6.45 KBBasically, your advice seems sound. However, in practice, Fiverr just doesn’t work like that. 😦 As a negative review stays on your profile FOREVER, even if a buyer cancels, your best option as a seller will usually be to just cancel, and then keep canceling new orders you have a suspicion you think are from the same person, until you are sure the spell you bought on Fiverr has had time to work and your buyer is no longer on this mortal coil.
