Fiverr should really start with making the ratings of buyers public. As it is now, the buyers have an unfair advantage, because they can influence the reputation of sellers, but it doesn’t work that way vice versa.
It is important for buyers to determine who to hire depending on the rating, but it’s also important for sellers to determine if they are willing to work for certain buyers, based on their rating.
As it is now, Fiverr only shows one side of the coin. This is totally unfair. While questionable behavior of some sellers can get exposed easily, the bad behavior of some buyers stays unpunished.
It’s not that I have personally that much bad experiences, but there are ignorant people on both sides. I know that there are a lot of sellers who get treated inappropriate by buyers who act unreasonable however they darn well please. Knowing that the only person who can get blemishes is the seller.
We should demand that Fiverr makes the ratings of buyers public and for everyone to see.
There are only advantages attached to that.
