Completed gig refunded 3 months after I completed it


#1

I wasn’t happy today as I see fiverr too $35 off my account from a job I completed 3 months ago. The buyer raised a paypal dispute.

Are we at the mercy now knowing people can simply refund when they feel like it?


#2

Sadly, yes we are, but the majority of buyers don’t do this, and they’ll be slung off Fiverr, so they can’t do it again.

Jeez. It is crazy. 5 years a seller. Never happened before.


#4

I’ve never had it, hope I never do, and I feel really sorry it’s happened to you!

This happened to me too as a new seller and I was very upset. Sad to hear but I think seller protection overall is something that needs improvement although I do see fiverr making efforts in terms of preventing editing of reviews after a while and being able to despute reviews. I’ve had buyers who got work had orders completed then came back for a whole entirely different task on the same order and threatening bad reviews. You’ll have bad experiences sometimes but just keep pushing through because the good outweighs the bad :slight_smile:
