Confused about Requests


#1

I just started a photoshop gig and suddenly I’m being inundated with people offering to do photoshop work for me on the Selling/Buyer Request page. Is this normal?


#2

Unable to get can you please Elaborate??


#3

Is the ‘Recent Buyer Requests’ page for requests aimed at me? If so, I’m being inundated with people trying to sell me their photoshop skills.


#4

Could someone explain where new requests for work show up? Is it on the contacts page or the buyer request page?


#5

No, it’s not aimed at you. It’s supposed to be a forum for potential buyers – in general, not your buyers – to post requests, so that sellers can send them bids.

It’s often misused by would-be sellers posting ads. It’s basically spam and should be ignored as such. There’s a “Remove Request” button to hide the spam, so that you can more easily examine the real buyer requests to see if there are any you can fulfill.


#6

Don’t worry. If/when someone orders your gig, you’ll get a notification that’s hard to miss – it’s a pink balloon up towards the top of the page.
