They just wanted to spare you the trouble.
Team member A: Damn. We need this text today. I just logged in to pick it up and guess what, someone didn’t attach the file so the order is still on ‘incomplete’.
Team Member B: That was C’s job.
C: I sent you a memo about it, A, don’t remember? The seller had a question anyway only you could answer.
A: But I did answer the question.
C: And why didn’t you start the order then?
A: Because that was your job.
Meanwhile B joins Teamboss at the coffee machine for a comment about A and B’s team qualities (thank God B had forgotten to start an order himself the day before but had caught the seller online right when they were about to log to sleep for a few hours and had been able to demand the job being done right away with a few decent well formulated comments).
A’s voice from the off: B, did you pick the seller for the cover? Even a donut with an IQ of -5 would have seen the ‘I don’t know that copyright exists’ on the seller’s page. What the #&@* is the minion doing on our cover?!
Teamboss (who picked the cover seller): head getting dangerously red…
You might be better off with being your own boss and solely responsible for everything you need.
But apart from the possible entertainment value, what I think… It probably can be a great feature. Unless you have Teamboss, A, B, and C in your team ;). Otherteamboss, S, T and U might do just wonderfully.
I guess it could work well for sellers too, if they plan to introduce it, after all, there are a lot of seller accounts that are teams already, though I definitely see a few pitfalls there, and yes, it might mean a disadvantage for some sellers.
It seems like another step away from the 5$ concept (5$ - 20% - withdrawal fee possibly - currency conversion loss / X team members = not much). And with a team function for Buyers, they target, also, companies and agencies more than individual entrepreneurs clearly, I suppose companies that need team function probably want more than 5 $ jobs done.
If the resellers we already have here team up too, I suppose it will mean more pressure for even lower prices for the remaining individual sellers.
For sellers who prefer to work alone it might become a problem to not be in a team, an agency or whatever, if most buyers who need a more complex job done would rather drop it all to a single team account instead of interacting with x individual sellers and if one doesn’t want to team up one is left with buyers who might do parts of a more complex job themselves and only need/want an individual service, and with the actual 5$ jobs which teams might not want to deal with in the first place.
Then again of course it’s possible that teams would do their best to go for that market as well, because they have more mouths to feed and more is usually nice anyway, so… but no team feature for sellers yet, so… .
