So, I commissioned a gig for a logo. The job gets done and I’m happy. I left a 4 star review and I tipped an additional 20%
The seller messages me: “Thank you sir! But a tip with 4stars? That’s a bit contradictory ”
My response was: “God has a hard time getting five stars from me… If someone gets a 5 star review or a 10 / 10 from me, it means that the work was so good that my heart stop beating and it was all I could do from demanding that the Pope canonize and raise them to living sainthood.”
The sellers response was mind blowing: “Then don’t try to contact me again because with that 4 stars you didn’t help me develop my business, regardless with the disrespect in your first message. Ciao ”
WTF… You got an above average rating… You got tipped… And now you are butt hurt because you didn’t get a five out of five? The work wasn’t perfect. I did have to repeat myself a few times. So, the work wasn’t perfect and you didn’t get a perfect score. It was above average and you got good marks.
You got graded on the work you did and telling a paying (and formerly happy) customer to never come back… How the hell is doing that going to help you build your business sunshine?
Is this what I should expect when engaging sellers on Fiverr?
