I recently found, that there is an option to charge potential buyers some extra when they require more than 1 hour of work. I went below in the “pricing” tab and added some extra charge if a buyer would need me to work more than 1 hour on his/her project.
But soon after that, I received an order for 7 hours of work and I found that no extra fee for every additional hour was included. By placing the order, a buyer just chose 7 in the “quantity” field of the gig and that’s how he ordered 7 hours of work for the basic hourly rate.
Then I had a few more orders for which the buyers placed one gig and added X quantity so that I was needing to work every additional hour for the cost that is calculated for one hour of work.
I kindly appreciate if someone could share an experience on how to allow buyers to place a gig only once (Qty: 1, and no more), and then if he/she needs to hire me for more than 1 hour, forward that buyer to the “additional hour” extra option.
I found, that almost nobody wants to pay extra for every additional hour of work, because they could just choose a quantity up to 20 for every gig for standard cost… But in this case, there is no sense in the “additional hour” extra, isn’t it?
