I have connected with a buyer through a buyer request. The buyer requested a small 1-page double-sided brochure/catalog (2 panels design). Which was already created and the buyer needs to create a Print-ready Vector from JPEG for $5. But after the reply, the buyer sends me a Bi-fold catalog JPEG which is a 4 panels design and I asked the buyer to increase the rate to $10. Buyer agreed and started sending me materials(Texts and JEPG) in my inbox. I ask the buyer to attach those to my requirements. Buyer reply was-
“yes but I can’t accept now. I have to see how you work first”
My replay was-
"I will provide the sample brochure on Vector (Print-ready) with more organized and aligned and with your corrections. And i will show you the draft before finalize it… i understood the project very well.
so there is nothing to worry about…"
Buyer replied- “Perfect. I keep sending you the textures with the names to enter”
And it was almost 12/14 JPEG with its title.
I replied politely and tried to understand that I will not work before confirmation and I stop replying.
Now the buyer threatening me, “I’ll have to put a negative review and maybe report you to fiver.”
Really confusing! I do not understand what to do now !!??
Is the buyer really capable to report in this circumstance !?
And what is the best way to refuse a buyer/order, which I don’t want to work with !?
Can anyone suggest me !?
