It’s a little over a year now, and I’m getting to meet top buyers. Not many though, but yes it is something as a number.
Some people are great. They understand you, let you submit the finished stuff as per your timeline, give what you ask, and are pretty fine when it comes to revisions. They don’t make it go too far.
The sad reality I’m getting to experience is that such people are wayyyy less.
What’s common is getting a bundle of services for as low a price as possible. On top of that, negotiating the price with seller, being quirky about delivery timelines or maybe some incomplete stuff they’re submitting themselves, asking for discounts (not bad, but the way they do , that is) or putting up mod requests for smallest of fixes and taking up lots of your time which you could have invested into other orders, learning skills or doing something else.
Funny thing about them is that they try someone for cheap, then tell their sob stories to you. LOL.
I’ll probably run away for my life from these people the next time onward. That top badge doesn’t necessarily mean a good chance of cha-ching, or actually, good people.
