How handle deadline


#1

Dear Fiverrer’s,

Hooray, my first post at this forum. :slight_smile:

I just wanted to ask, how YOU handle with deadlines. My problem is the following:

I’m offering a time intensive Gig - Logo Design. I’ve already put the delivery time up to 5 days. But there are this buyers, which are only one time a day online. When I send them a draft, I get a response on the next day. So 5 days is not a long time where you can make revisions.

Until the logo is final, the deadline is almost reached.

Is it possible to hit the button “deliver work” to stop the counter? Or is this not allowed to use for this?

Thanks in advance for your replies. :slight_smile:

David

I try to make the first delivery within the given time. Revisions can be late if need be as the buyer understands that a revision will take some time.

As long as you deliver on time, a revision exceeding the time given for a completed order won’t hurt you. The main thing is to not deliver an order late. Just advise your clients (or even include it in your gig description or requirements) that revisions will take time to complete.

Thanks for answers. But the thing is, the counter will always start when a buyer check, that he want a revisions. If I’m lucky, he will only type that in the message field. But when he do this, the order will be automatically marked as completed after 3 days.

i mostly do like this, if buyer is not responsive and i don’t get reply withing 6 to 8 working hours from my buyer than i start proceeding to cancellation rather than waiting for buyer. i do recommend quality over quantiy. and i do ask my buyer to respond me as quickly as possible otherwise either i will deliever the task as i think its done or i will request cancellation.
