So…I have a serious bone to pick with buyers who do not leave feedback for their sellers.
It’s so rude.
Believe it or not, reviews really do help sellers get more work and establish ourselves on this platform. The least you, as a buyer, can do is take 15 seconds to click a certain amount of stars and type a few words. Not that hard.
I HATE when buyers just take the work and don’t leave any kind of feedback.
I had a buyer who refused to leave any feedback until she wanted me to cancel a project that had been marked as complete THREE WEEKS AGO with funds released to me. I asked her several times if there was anything I needed to modify. No response.
I asked for her to mark the work as complete and leave a review if she was satisfied. Nothing.
Then three weeks later she comes back, says she can’t use the petition I wrote, and threatens to leave a bad review if I dont cancel the work and refund her. So you can leave a review NOW but not THREE WEEKS AGO when I asked if you wanted any modifications.
I always go above and beyond for my buyers, but there are limits.
The assignment was marked as complete THREE WEEKS ago. If she wanted revisions, she should have said something prior to that. I reached out to her several times and got no feedback.
Even if I COULD have cancelled an assignment that was already marked as complete with funds released to me, I WOULDNT HAVE and I didnt. It’s ironic that she ignored my requests for feedback, but then threatened to leave a bad review if I didn’t bend Fiverr’s rules for her. I blocked her after that.
In the end she left a bad review, but I can live with that. I worked with another seller who was amazing and left me a GREAT review, along with a $20 tip.
Buyers…PLEASE LEAVE A REVIEW FOR YOUR SELLERS when the work is completed. I, like many sellers, work hard on this platform. If you’re getting high quality work, the least you can do is take a few seconds to leave some feedback on your seller’s profile.
