OK this is something more of a tip/warning:
When you deliver and order and the buyer hits the request revision button, the process is well-known:
you need to revise the project and re-deliver.
What happens when your buyer hits the modification button, BUT have yet to figure out what they need changed?
This is where I have a tip for you:
Do not, under any circumstances, allow for this to go on for more than a couple of weeks!
You see, I just found out the hard way that when an order is left like that with no new delivery coming from you, the system then locks the auto-completion mechanism.
Which means that even if you deliver after a while, the buyer will need to submit a review, otherwise you will never see the order closed out and the money clearing to your account.
In my case, the buyer hit the modification button, because he needed to provide me with some images to add to a custom app promo video. Weeks went by and he remained responsive to my polite nudges, he had a lot of work to do, couldn’t find the time to get those new images, that I needn’t worry.
Long story short a couple of months went by, the buyer never logged in again, and I essentially lost my compensation for all the work I put in that project.
It has now been a year since that went down, customer support were the ones who informed me that it is not a bug, but a fail-safe for the system.
This was not a cheap project either, so I lost quite a few hundred dollars, and Fiverr said buh-bye to their commission as well.
Just wanted to get the word out there so every seller knows what’s up.
If for some reason you have an order that’s stuck under a “request for a modification” status for too long, if you deliver the order will NEVER auto-complete and the buyer will need to accept the delivery so you can get compensated.
So be wary of non-responsive buyers. If you need more info in order to provide a revision, insist that you get it within a reasonable time frame.
That is all.
