Hi, I had a bit of a strange situation today.
I’ve done a lot of work with another seller here on Fiverr, who hires me when he has too much to do, which I guess technically makes him a reseller, but I don’t really mind as I get paid what I ask for and don’t have to deal with as many conversations with sellers.
A couple of days ago, he hired me for a 5day gig.
Today, another buyer contacted me to ask for a custom offer on an order. When I reviewed the files they sent me, I realized that it was the same order.
Basically, the buyer has an active order with my friend but now seems to want to make a new order for the same files.
Obviously I could’ve accepted the job and gotten paid twice for the same work, but it seemed risky to me, so I said I was too busy to do the job right now, thinking that they might have the same order out with plenty of sellers and intend to cancel everyone but one.
Why would a buyer do this?
What would you have done if this happened to you?
