Hello, I’ve joined Fiverr for about 2 weeks now, and finally someone contacted me saying that they’re interested on my blog writing gig. I immediately messaged them back discussing all the details and how long it would take me to write 2 1000 word SEO blog for them. He agreed, but upon placing the order, the buyer ordered my video editing gig instead.
I’m relatively new, but I’m aware that the ratings/feedback that the buyer would give would reflect on my video editing gig - which is completely unrelated to the project at hand. I felt quite disappointed because I wanted people to review what the actual work was.
So I sent him a custom offer and asked him if he’d like to cancel the prior order. He said:
“No. I already placed the order. Thanks”
I was pretty bummed, but I agreed anyway because this was my very first order. Not an ideal experience, as I would be forced to send a delivery and have a blog post appear on my portfolio for the “video editing” gig. Sucks.
