I got a buyer that needed a postcard design for his company. He only had the title, so I had to come up with ideas myself.
I come up with 3 ideas about how to illustrate the program he presents. He liked one of them, I asked about the colors, details and started working. Once I was done, he said that now he wants me to draw something completely different. When I asked why did he make me to finish this illustration if now he needs something else. He answered “My ideas are a work in progress.”
He didn’t suggest to pay for the time and work I have already done, he just wanted me to start over again with something else. It was a 5 dollars request and I spent 3 hours drawing + some time making research.
I was disappointed and sad, I didn’t see a solution but to cancel this order. Is there any way that fiverr can protect me from such buyers? I wasted my time and didn’t get anything, that’s obviously not my fault.
