FIVERR: Seller, you might be reviewed by a Buyer after the order is delivered.
SELLER: Why can’t a Seller access the Buyer reviews as rated by previous Sellers?
FIVERR: The Buyers are the ones paying the money. A Seller might not accept the order of a Buyer with a poor rating.
SELLER: Then why have the function in the first place? And why hide the Buyer rating from the Seller now?
FIVERR: We figure now that the Seller cannot reply with a custom response, then they just won’t make one.
SELLER: But that’s the way the Seller can once again thank the Buyer in a personal, customized way.
FIVERR: Well, now that you aren’t leaving a buyer rating, we are saving lots on bandwidth! So, no need to leave a rating since other Seller’s can’t access it any way.
SELLER: Then why have the “Review the Buyer” function at all?
FIVERR: That’s a great idea! We will be rolling that out next month! Why didn’t I think of that? No more Buyer Reviews!
SELLER: But that’s another touchpoint of outstanding customer service.
FIVERR: Do you know how many sellers are on this platform!
SELLER: I don’t know the number. But I know how they feel.
If you made it down this far in the thread, I want to acknowledge you.
You work hard. Really hard.
You care a lot. More than the average freelancer.
I don’t have any answers, and applaud everyone who has weighed in with suggestions. See you next week when the next percentage of the 100 percent is rolled out.
