I am still new here so I guess I still don’t fully understand how Fiverr works.
Please explain to me how is it possible for a client to pay me and hire me BEFORE it even gives me the option to ACCEPT the job?
So I get an order for 500 words to translate over night, when I’m not even here (I translate up to 200 words for one gig price)
When I come back in the morning I see that I have only 10 hours to finish a job that I don’t even want to do since it is very underpaid.
I clearly advertised I would translate only up to 200 words for $5 and now I am forced to translate 500 words for $5?! no thanks! not going to do it. I have an option for a gig-extra set up on there for situations like this, but the client chose just the normal $5 gig and sent over his file for me to work on, without ever discussing with me or getting an answer from me.
Please explain how does it work here on the fiverr site. how to avoid situations like this? is it something in my settings that I need to change?
I am now stuck with an order that I refuse to work on for this shameful price. I never accepted this job. How is it allowed for a client to hire me like this, like a slave?!
I want to able to ACCEPT job offers just like any other job site, not be forced to do something at whatever price the client thinks! and what if I wasn’t here for 2 or 3 days? then what? I’m hired without even knowing, and can get a bad feedback without ever accepting a job? something’s fishy here.
As I mentioned I am new here so you guys that have been here longer, please explain how to work around this issue, thank you
