It has been many years but sometimes I really feel bad when some buyers start behaving like cheaters.
Some buyers are like, format a book cover, I say please send the order and when I see the order, their demand is not the formatting but the design, and when I ask for more money, they ask to cancel – what to do – cancel means penalty - work on it means lower down the standard costs – stuck from every where so better to work!
I am still dealing with a client who is really hard to handle. he asked me to format a book using a word template. I told him spacing etc are not good, he said do not do anything just make initial few pages look good and make it ready for the printer. Do not change fonts, do not change spacing, font size, etc I did the same and then he asked for a refund saying it is not a good job. OMG! what to do with such clients??
Another client, after 100% of work is completed and delivered. His reply was That’s awesome, I liked your work but need some changes. Then a big list of changes, additional work, etc. All Done except a few for which he was informed BUT again a big list of extra work to do this and that, and when I requested time, he requested a refund LOL but he was kind enough to ask for a 50% refund HAHA!
really these days, spend money to get work, and then such clients, OMG really going through trauma due to such super weird clients - sorry for my bad words but instead of asking for corrections or rating the issues, they collect the source files and ask to cancel.
