Blocking Buyers


#1

Does anybody know how to block buyers before they can order?
I got bombarded with questions from a buy I certainly don’t want to work for.
So stupid that it’s twisting my ****.


#2

OK, it’s alright. I just hit the report button and that blocks him.
I told him that we are not a good match and urged him to find another seller.
His reply was 'Thank you for the updat. I’ll keep in touch with you.'
See what I’m talking about? Grrrr


#3

I have read in another post that its impossible to block buyers. Well, you can use the report button to block him for just a while but this doesn’t block him forever.


#4

I just noticed that he still can send me his stupid messages and I can’t reply.
Nice.
I sent a message to CS, if they don’t take care about it I’m done here on Fiverr.
This idiot totally ignores the fact that I don’t want to work with him. Gosh, this is annoying.


#5

I will pause all my gigs if I receive another message from that fool.


#6

LOL Mario, looks like you have a stalker :slight_smile:


#7

This is really pissing me off. Already told CS that I leave the platform if they don’t make this stop.
There are enough people in the forum posting how desperate they are to get orders. He could take one of them instead.


#8

Mario don’t leave because of this! We all deal with this sometimes. Just use the automatic answer with a message you hit every time he sends a message and have it say
"I apologize but I am too busy to answer now. Have a nice day."
Keep using this same message to him each time. Reporting him won’t work. This will.
You can cancel the “report” and allow his messages to get through to you again.
Then send him this same reply each time.


#9

OK. It has stopped for now.
I really can’t deal with morons. I tell him politely to *** and he keeps coming back with his stupid files.
I leave him reported for now but if I keep receiving his garbage I will follow your advice.
Gosh, I’m such a peaceful person but in moments like this I want to do everything with them I ever saw Joe Pesci do to people in ‘The Good Fellas’

Just send a custom offer of $10000 with 30 day delivery time. It’s the fastest way of getting rid of unwanted buyers.


#11

lol


#12

Yes! Sending them a huge custom offer works every time.


#13

The code has been cracked again, lol.


#14

@eoinfinnegan That’s the best decision indeed


#15

LOL! Something must be in the air today. I have an interesting one today as well ;).


#16

Yes, the moron virus is spreading, lol.


#17

Wouldn’t it be amusing if they got the overpriced offer in their email, clicked on the go to gig link and got immediately sent to PayPal to send $10000 automatically and… oooh, I can already taste the delicious meltdown when the “Fiverr credit only” comes to light…

MY Reply
You serious? 25 articles! 2 gig. NO NO NO NO. I CAN’T DO IT

HIS Reply
Sorry . I’m running a tightship now.

Task1 + task 2+ Task3 = 65 articles, 2 weeks time = 6 gigs + (I will throw in another 3 gigs If you deliver quality.)

Each induvidual articles needs to be > 750 words.

This is bulk work, if you cant take it up. Thats okay, will get back to you when I have something else

MY Reply
Well, i cant say how i replied to him but i made sure that i have written in Caps-lock in order to make it more clear.

My advice is to make it STRAIGHT and Clear.


#19

Finally he got it. Send him several times the message that I don’t want to work with him.


#20

This kind of moron yeah. If I could I would travel back in time and give condoms to the parents.
