Be A Better Seller


#1

I have been disappointed that the items are not delivered in a timely manner. My experience has been that sellers take a LOT longer to deliver than they advertise. I suggest sellers spend more time on estimating their delivery time and advertise a realistic delivery time.



I have been very pleased with what I have received from sellers. The items are great and well worth a fiver.



Purchased 11 completed gigs



Fabulous 3



Great 2



Good 4



Bad 2


  1. Seller advertised “gorgeous photos” instead delivered pictures with Shutterstock stamped across the middle to go with short stories. Fiverr resolved and seller now sells stories with no pictures.


  2. Seller wouldn’t deliver. Fiverr resolved.

    Happy Buyer

I am sorry you have had that experience and know that if a seller takes longer to deliver than what is indicated on there gig page, you can leave accurate feedback to reflect your experience with that seller

Some Seller are scammers and some buyers also.

Thank you for your replies. The delivery delays I am mentioning were caused by the seller not giving an accurate delivery time, not the unexpected delay that can happen to any seller.

Just trying to let you sellers know that the delay is frustrating for the buyer and it will make you a better seller and higher earner if you can give accurate delivery times. I just received my 12th gig…great item and a picture of my 13th gig (it looks gorgeous) and both gigs were shipped on time. Happy selling.

I agree. I honestly don’t know what they were thinking. I just recommended your proofreading gig to another seller (who has a website that could use your expertise). Hope that they purchase your gig and that you make me proud! I have also collected your gig for my own future use.

Wow. I’m sorry to hear what you’ve been through. It’s better to have a pm conversation first with the seller so that you can be rest assured of the delivery time. Hope your next one will be a better and more trusted one! :smiley:

Reply to @rodesigners: Yes, I see that too. Fiverr has good tools for buyers to deal with this. Now, we just need good tools to deal with bad buyers. LOL

Plain out some people just like to scam people. Before ordering gigs read threw all the feedback they have if they have any, or look threw some of there other gigs to see if they have good feedback
