Overall I’ve really enjoyed Fiverr as a service for me to sell my art, but my biggest frustration is when clients place orders in the odd hours of the morning and/or place an order for something I would have liked to discuss with them first. I know I’ve gone through all my gig’s and placed the classic “Please Contact Me Prior To Ordering” at the top of every gig. But I find that doesn’t exactly help.
However, recently I recommended to another user, and started doing this myself upon realizing it was an option another method to promote communication from potential buyers.
Basically, using the “requirements” section of my gigs I added an additional section asking “Have you contacted me prior to ordering?” with a simple yes or no selection option. I found that this has been the most successful method thus far to get customers to message me before placing an order or waiting until a more reasonable time of day to place the order! Hopefully this really simple suggestion helps more people!!
