How to (and how not to) cancel a gig


#1

If you want to cancel, first, don’t put it on the seller to do the work. use the “Got problems” link and request the cancellation. In the text box, say something like. "Thanks for offering your material on Fiverr. I appreciate your effort and I don’t think it’s what I need this time. I’m requesting a cancellation of this gig though Fiverr. Thank you."



Here’s how NOT to “try” to cancel a gig.



There’s “this” problem with your gig

This problem with your gig.

It’s crap

You suck

…please cancel.



LOL



Look, someone ALREADY did work for you. They did it with good faith. What you “think” of them is “none of their business” and if it is at all, a) get permission and b) be constructive.



By the way, …any guess if I just had a Fraglesrock make me work to return his money after ripping me up and down?

Yes, true, but a cancel stinks too. It is the lesser of 2 evils.

Of course, a buyer cannot be made to be happy. And a cancel is better than a negative feedback :slight_smile:

Oh man. I had a chick take about 10 photos of me with her website, then say she is not satisfied and cancel the gig…she got EXACTLY what she ordered. Watch out for the sneaky buyers.

Don't be worried! :) I rarely get replies. All that matters is they confirm the gig, but it can take weeks. If you're feeling nervous leave a happy message like "is this good?" If they ask you to do it again,you'll skip a bad review. :)

Good suggestions.

If I have gigs I have to cancel for no compliance submission of family information for their family tree then I wait until I have several completed gigs, I deliver 2 gigs for every 1 I have to cxl…

Is that good or bad? I cannot tell.

#16

It is “neither” good nor bad. She is saying that she wants to make sure she doesn’t get “hurt” from cancellations so always makes sure she’s at least 2 to 1 when she has to cancel.



I suspect her overall ration of cancels is a whole lot less than 30% :slight_smile:

how do I cancel a gig, when the seller hasn’t responded to any of my emails? and the time limit has passed and the Fiverr timer resets for another 10 minutes everytime I go to the resolution center? any help would be appreciated.



Thanks

@robjefferies

Put “how do I cancel a gig” into the Fiverr Forum search box.


#19

I get nothing when I put in “how do I cancel a gig” in the search box. I have a gig for traffic that was great for the first couple of days and then nothing from that point on, now the resolution center says I have to work with sell who will not respond to the last 5 emails over the last 6 days, what else can I do to cancel this and get my money back, I am obviously not the only one

as a buyer if you have to cancel a gig because a seller will not reply or complete the gig, or want to bully you into upgrading for more gigs, does this reflex bad on you as a buyer to have cancellations ?
