After spending three “great” months on fiverr, I’ve finally gotten my full indoctrination…baptism by fire, if you will.
Yesterday, I got my first cancellation from a buyer who was unresponsive for 2 days until his order ran late and I was forced to initiate cancellation. I thought I just had a bad experience but took it I probably just jumped the gun of a potentially bad client.
Guess what? I’m bracing for a negative review right now, and I don’t care no more. This particular buyer has placed up to 5 orders with me - not a single review. I just delivered her last yesterday, woke to a revision request (which I did follow through with), and then another vague revision request. Requesting more clarity for this second revision earned me a cancellation request. Perfect, just perfect!
Really, I offer two revisions - which I’ve never exhausted - and for the most part, I never even get to use the first. To prevent us going into a back and forth over revisions, I requested clarity (with specific questions). Next thing was a message telling me how to prevent further poor deliveries, she has assigned the task to someone else and I should cancel. So, my time and effort was what? A waste? No, I don’t think so!
Now I’m bracing for either of two things - cancellation by CS, or a negative review. I just gotta tell myself “welcome to fiverr!”
To y’all old timers, I’m now in ya league, alright?
EDIT: I gotta add that for now, the order is in limbo: double request for cancellation which I duly declined, and a confusion as to whether to re-deliver my last delivery (which will pro’ly earn me an awesome negative review - my first on the platform)! Really, thanks great buyer, it’s been fun all the way…
