In my listing, I ask that all buyers message me prior to purchasing the gig. That way I can work out what exactly they are looking for and make sure they are prepared to send me the information that I need to complete their order.
This order came in without any contact beforehand. Which is fine. It does happen occasionally. The other thing is, that after I delivered they had three days to request revisions. They did not contact me. Not until over a month had passed.
I agree that I could have reached out in the beginning, but to be honest, when I am looking at an order that I stand to make $4 on, I’m not exactly motivated to go above and beyond. Especially when they couldn’t be bothered to even give the date of an event that they were supposedly ordering an invitation for.
I think my frustration with the barrage of terse and negative messages I am now receiving is clouding my feelings about this situation in general. I’ve completed almost 400 orders… I’m not new to all of this. I just… well, I guess I just needed to vent. Thank you for your perspectives!
