When you go to a seller for an order…
Don’t add things to your order after it is delivered.
Example: “Oh … the $5 video I wanted just looks too plain with the background I ordered … Why dont you just throw in my logo , a background picture for free…”
What sense does this make? A silver background $5 video is going to be plain. Thats the point. Extras add more professionalism and value to the order. How would you justify adding anything of exceptional value for a $5 price tag?
This goes for any gig , logo design , e-book covers , voiceovers , anything and everything here on fiverr.
Do you order from a restaurant and be like:
“Hey I ordered FRIES but I only got FRIES… Why dont you just add another steak and some green beans on the side for free to make up for that…”
No - it doesnt work that way in the real world!
And it doesnt work that way on fiverr!
Sellers , stand your ground.
Buyers , dont do this to any sellers…
Make sure before you hit the order button that you know what your order will contain and if you have questions , ask before hitting that button.
Lets keep fiverr a great place to work.
Be smart folks!
One way to setup proper expectations would be to outline this in your Buyer’s Reqirements boxes… Give a simple list of what to expect for $5 orders and ask buyers to cancel if they do not like what they see there. After all , that info should already be in your gig description and/or video … so it’s not really your fault if they received that inconvenience.
In my case - it was a custom order that we answered from the buyer requests section.
There was no way to set these ground rules …
I hope fiverr lets us simply link our normal gig to buyers for buyer requests so it can display the normal gig requirements as usual… This only confuses buyers/sellers when dealing with a custom order if the requirements for that gig still need to be relayed to the buyer. It’s extra work. Causes problems, cancellations , and bad business.
