I am new here! I received my first gig on Fiverr at the beginning of last week (yay!) however, they seem to be taking the p***
My rates are low ($5, for 3 hours within 3 days) as I’m trying to build a reputation - this dude saw me coming !!
The buyer messaged and asked if I would be able to sign up to a website for him if he provided me with the details. I said yes and agreed to the task and he proceeded to purchase my gig. Having signed up to the website, I had to complete a series of grammar tests on the website (this wasn’t agreed however I followed through because the buyer agreed to 3 hours work).
The account I signed up for became frozen and there was a delay in the sign up. I asked the buyer if he wanted me to write to the customer support team twice; I received no reply and because it was coming to the end of the gig, I submitted the ‘completion’. After the gig had finished, he messaged and asked if I would proceed to message the customer support. So I did this (after completion) and sent him a confirmation screenshot and said: any additional work, please continue to purchase another gig.
It has been a week now, and he now wants me to sign up another user to this website and only then he will ‘approve the gig’. To me, this is considered an additional task/gig… am I wrong ?? He wasn’t upfront about the amount of work that was required, I followed his instructions and completed the task and more already!
Maybe this is the typical newbie hustle… I am still learning the Fiverr etiquette, would someone in the Fiverr community kindly advise how I should have handled this situation and what I should do next ?
