Auto-response would defeat the purpose of “Response Rate”, so that’s out of the question.
Secondly, unfortunately, although our work here feels like a JOB, it isn’t as self-employment is more like running a business. And a real business owner seldom sleeps easy.
The life of a Business Owner vs a Working Person.
Although businesses do have closing time, but that is only because they employ people and working people needs off time. Most popular and successful business thus employs people 24/7 and does NOT have a CLOSING time nowadays.
With all that being said, I have seen TRS here have done this and I do the same and which is, in my Profile description I have listed my WORKING HOURS on EST.
So similarly, I would recommend maybe modifying your gig descriptions to include that you will either be a bit slow for response on the weekend OR that you do not work on the weekend. And also stating orders placed on weekends will have delayed response or completion time, etc.
This can be your only temporary solution.
