Thanks to a client, whom I have bent over backwards to accommodate, leaving 3.5 star reviews, I have lost the ability to send offers through buyer requests. Before this client, I had an unblemished 5 stars, now… not so much.
After working on a project for her for a week and regularly communicating, she kept requesting “revisions” and changing her mind/order completely. After going on for a week, as I was getting ready to deliver, she canceled her order. Later, she sends a request for a gig immediately related to the one she’d canceled. In order to complete it, because sellers are not able to refuse gigs without a negative impact, I was forced to basically deliver $200 of work for 20. (Less thanks to Fiverr) I’ve now done 3 gigs for her, changing everything she requests and working through her very unclear instructions, she still refuses to leave anything above 3.5 stars. My work is neat, professional, clear and custom made per order, yet she still refuses to leave a decent review. I just don’t understand how a seller is supposed to grow if they’re penalized for EVERYTHING and buyers like this can do as they please… It is very discouraging to someone trying to chase their dreams with otherwise no accessible means to do so.
