Don't ever TRUST any buyer request from massage


#1

My first advice to new sellers don’t ever trust buyer from massage, I am still new in Fiverr and have no experience yet in selling but I love to share with you my story.

Yesterday a buyer from USA asked me to design a wedsite for him (only design without code) and he told me if I make it within 5 hours he will pay me $40 and after I worked 5 hours continuously and throw this he was chating me and I sent hame pic and he was happy but then he disappear without place any order.

feel very bad after 5 hours my back hurts me and it was 2 am clock when he disappear and he don’t answer me…



I know later on it was my fault but as I said before I have no experience in Fiverr yet…

Sorry for my poor English :slight_smile:

Hello ,



First , It really hurt me when i’ve read your problem , there’s many bad buyers over fiverr looking for new seller to cheat them ,



And always pay attention to the way how the buyer is talking to you and don’t do any work if the buyer hadn’t ordred it !



The good thing is you learn a good experience from this and you wont do it for the next time !



Ps : I haven’t sold any offer yet ! :smiley: so thanks for sharing your experience with us

Hi, sorry to hear about your experience with bad buyer, yes there is a many cheaters who do their job in that way, it’s really going to be a problem here because in last 2 months I have canceled over 10 orders because of that the buyer order a gig after delivery leave negative feedback even if you do more than he asks this is common practice in fiverr unfortunately, it makes me very sad and demotivates a lot.

Sorry to hear that.



No orders without orders. No mockups, No “Let’s see what you can do and then I will order.”

Reply to @landongrace: True…I learned a very hard lesson not only in Fiverr but in life

A few people have tried to get me to not only give them large amounts (weeks and one buyer wanted a year’s worth of Facebook design management) of work before placing an order but once I said they could order the gig anytime they still tried to get me to give them tons of free work without ordering. And I am not new, either which is what is strange. At first I chalked it up to one buyer not understanding the system but he knew what he was doing. I didn’t get this when I started but now they are showing up and being very brazen about it. It concerns me that they are taking advantage of people.

Reply to @landongrace: Thanks, Landongrace-I get sick of fake buyers saying that to me. They want tons of fresh content to “see what I can do” but when I direct them to the websites I write for they still want me to “send them samples”. They just want free work and they all start to sound the same after a while. Luckily most of my experience on Fiverr has been good!

Reply to @rachel44: Really thanks for your comment, it’s very helpful , I dont know why there is always buyers like to get some work for free just like we didn’t make a very hard work for him!!! and its only $5 like a cup of coffee

And dont forget to put watermark.

I am greatful that Fiverr has built the traffic. The more traffic, the more crazy people. But we need the traffic.



Also the Fiverr platform has a reputation of people doing stuff for very very little. Which is also good for traffics. If people didn’t believe there were incredible deals available, there would be less traffic.



I think it is a good balance. Just turn down the work you don’t want.

Don’t do 5 hours of work for $5 unless you are leveling up and need the traction. Have a long term game of making what you want to make. You determine if you work for $1 per hour or $100 per hour.



Don’t misunderstand, I invested a lot of time in those first 100 gigs. I knew it would get me to where I wanted to be.

Hi,



don’t put any efforts without placing the order. Client can choose refund or mutual cancellations if the job is fail


#17

Yeah, never do any work without having the buyer pay first… 99% of the time they’re a fraud.


#18
