I’ve been receiving a troublesome orders recently. Previously the buyer had submitted large texts for translation where my gig is only for proofreading. This time another buyer orders a design gig, I do it all and deliver the work, they reject it with this message:
“This guys just sells stuff that you get for free over here: … . WTF, this is an absolute scam”.
I write back to her explaining politely that I use paid fonts and software and do not use those free sites to deliver work and I also do not force anyone to buy my gigs. I also explain to her that what I’ve delivered is different from what she can get on that site.
She rejects this again:
The gig is only a $5 one with three revisions (I know, it’s my bad to offer 3 revisions for a basic gig), but I have done all the work and delivered it promptly and for the $4 that I will get, I’m getting this much hassle. If I cancel this, my Fiverr rank is going to be impacted, if I don’t, she will write a negative review.
What shall I do? The hassle of delivering work is much more than what I’d earn.
