So I put out a request that I need visuals for multiple instrumentals from me and my partners. There are 11 so I spilt it up 6 and 5 between two people I chose from those who responded to the request.
The other guy very professional, great work, speedy delivery, no problem.
The guy I needed 6 videos from is where it took a turn. I could tell he doesn’t really speak english that well. That’s fine. I tell him what I want, say I have to get the final files together and I will send them to him the next day. He was kind of spam messaging me too but he’s eager for the sale I’m not going to judge.
He asks me what my budget is for the project. The offer he sent me shows $5 per video. That would be $30. So I told him I’m okay with $30. He send me custom offer. I accept and send him the 6 files like I said I would.
He replies confused asking why so many files and that I said because that’s what I said I would send you. He replies with not a problem okay I will do all. I understand there is language barrier so I’m not at al pissed.
There was some stuff that happened between but I’ll skip the real annoying part. He completes the gig. I accept and give him 5 star review with a nice comment saying good work. (because the work was truly nice an delivered as described)
He later messages under the same gig that I didn’t accept the gig (which isn’t true because how would I leave a review? Must be a glitch on fiverrs part)
And he also says that I didn’t tip and I should have because he did all the videos… Then tells me to accept the gig and that he’s not doing anything more (which no one asked him to)…
- If I didn’t accept the gig how would you know if I tipped or not?
- Why would I tip you for doing something you were suppose to do to begin with? Not to mention you haven’t exactly made this the easiest process but I’ll leave that out.
At this point I’m annoyed. I reply back and tell him that I said from the start it was multiple files, he just wasn’t paying attention. And why would I tip him when he doesn’t even deserve a tip. I’m not tipping you for doing a gig as described. I’ll tip if I feel you deserve it for whatever reason. An clearly I didn’t think so.
I hate to rant about fiverr sellers because I know the struggle. But when I essentially get yelled at and thrown out on my ass on my way out the door because I didn’t tip, you’re definitely getting put on the ranting pot.
That is all.
