Top sellers should also be given similar priveleges, as I think sellers are not that well protect with “n00b”-buyers. ANd with n00b I don’t mean beginners, but people who can’t make up their mind. They often buy/order something and cancel afterwards, because they saw something cheaper or ordered the wrong gig. I even had someone being lazy not willing to deliver images which is ridiciulous as this was the fundamental part of the gig itself. This affects the quality of the sellersrating which actually has nothing to do with the seller. The buyer has to thinkover what is neccesary and needed, BUY = BUY.
UX-Wise, you should have a screen with a summary with the order saying:
- Neccessary from buyer: X Y Z
- Delivery by seller: A
- If buyer can’t deliver X Y Z, than buyer can’t deliver A
Fiverr should show sellers more security, as buyers are breaching rules a lot of times, actually without getting noticed. The sellers are more protected in this case instead of the serious and truthful sellers.
