I received Level 1 badge yesterday and was pretty excited, little did i know there was going to be a twist to my excitement later that same day.
My ratings dropped to 4.9 because a buyer bought a gig and had me type out a scanned PDF onto MS Word and gave a 4 star rating on the end.
The buyer clearly stated that I didn’t have to format the document, just type it so that they can edit it at freewill, I did just that and even more… I formatted the document to reflect the original scanned copy (could have done more, but since the buyer asked me to just type, I felt the extra I did was enough).
Buyer marked the order as completed, dropped a nice review but 4 star ratings.
I tried to find out if I had defaulted in my delivery and buyer responded that I would have earned a 5 star if I had fully formatted the Word document, when clearly they told me to type and not bother about formatting.
I thought of opening a dispute, but I had read here (in the experience of another seller) that Fiverr bots could see that as me soliciting for good reviews.
Well, I accepted my fate and thanked the buyer for purchasing my gig
I’m yet to rate my experience with the buyer because, I don’t even know what to say.
