Wow. A long-time client just went bonkers on me when I refused to accept his offer to my offer if he used a discount code that Fiverr is using. My experiences with the codes is a loss of income for me, which isn’t right.
He literally went off claiming I was a waste of his time that I didn’t accept his offer of $30 then $35 then $40 with the discount. First off, the project was worth $40 and negotiating for cheaper because you want it cheaper makes me feel you don’t respect my time, efforts or work. So just no.
And with Fiverr offering a discount code, my experiences with it is that I lose money unless Fiverr cs agrees to reimburse me. Sorry but no to that too. Too much of a hassle.
He literally went nuts with it saying he’d find someone better, which I had said maybe he needed to find a person that would align with his budget. I thought I was pretty professional. My only hope is that he doesn’t go to cs before I can get back toy computer later today. I want to make them aware of what is going on to explain my side.
He was like what if he had ordered before with the discount, would I have cancelled. I’ve had it happen and I’ve dealt with it by talking with the buyer. Most have been understanding… he’s the only one not to have been.
Unfortunately, on the app, i couldn’t report the buyer’s behavior… Just block him. It’s a good thing I’m on vacation mode as he can’t order and then I can go to his name and block him from ordering from me altogether.
This is my business and if I don’t want to work with you, I won’t. But just wow! His messages came across as if I should be grateful for his business using Lol after everything mentioned with a dollar sign or saying he’s on a budget. Join the rest of the world. I am too.
