Some gigs attract troublemakers who are always demanding revisions, refunds, or leaving bad reviews.
Other gigs do not.
For a long time, I had a gig that made me 50% of my monthly money, sometimes more, but it created nothing but problems. After suffering level demotions, several times, and experiencing the frustration of having to issue refunds after wasting a lot of time trying to satisfy clients, I have come to the conclusion that maybe I don’t need the aggravation.
So, I’m pausing that gig for a week. I’d like to see if his helps me increase my order completion rate and rating.
If there was no monthly evaluation, no unfair demotions, I wouldn’t do this. If Fiverr didn’t punish us for refunding orders, I would keep the gig active.
Sadly, under Fiverr’s new system, it’s not possible to do that. So I’m going to play by Fiverr’s rules, and only focus on having perfect gigs with no drama, no problems.
If my old clients contact me, I’ll send them custom offers with other gigs. I hope this doesn’t violate TOS.
