I got an order a few days ago that has actually been quite difficult - mostly because I gave him a plan, and he said he liked the plan, so I executed it, but he came back with lots of changes, which I happily revised. In each revision his first answer would be to the effect that he liked it, but then would come back with more changes. Throughout the process I was extremely patient (just being my normal self), and told him that I “could absolutely change that for him”.
Finally last night I completed the order and delivered a final revision. I logged off and then got a notification on my phone that he had left me a very LARGE tip (the tip was the same price as the gig - and the price of the gig wasn’t exactly a small amount)
I promptly messaged him and asked if he had made a mistake. I was thinking he didn’t understand how fiverr worked and that he was thinking the tip was the payment for the gig. I explained that he had already paid for the gig when he accepted my offers and that a tip was something extra, payable at his discretion for a service well done, and only if he felt that my work deserved a tip.
His reply was a bit of a welcome shock: “I purposely gave you the tip for being so patient and so helpful and so professional. You really are not like most Fiverr vendors. You are a class act. Thank you again.”
Well, I’m beaming! And I feel like sometimes a little extra patience, and a bit of free extra revision (even if it wasn’t initially agreed) goes a long way in satisfying your customers. I will certainly be offering an extra free revision in future!
