Experienced Fiverr sellers: I’m interested in how you handle this and whether you have a way to screen such early on. I can be very nice to someone, give them info, details, offers, then it turns out they needed it quicker and someone else did it for them, but they have another request. So I give an offer for that, wait for their reply, go out of my way to reserve time for them in case they need that translation because it “has to be today”, but they don’t reply until this job too is irrelevant for them.
This isn’t my main experience but I have had several such, and I wonder if I need some way to be more assertive from the start, or refuse to do “fast stuff” so this it is not an option for someone to “just pester me” for info only to find out they won’t pay or that 20$ is too expensive for them anyway, and all that without losing my credibility or general good customer relations.
I do have many years’ experience, just not on Fiverr… (been here ca. 6 months).
