I requested some work to be done, should be a simple task for someone with experience. One of the developers quoted $5, which is a fair remuneration as for someone with the experience it is 2 minutes work.
I then had a message asking what I wanted done and what was the budget. I again restated the work required and that I expected the work to be done for the quoted price. After a couple more delaying messages I received a message saying this is not a $5 task. If that was truely the case then this ‘experienced’ person should not have quoted that price.
To quote a price with the obvious intention of renegotiating is simply dishonest and has just wasted time.
I sincerely hope this very disappointing experience is not typical on Fiver, I will be seeking other options for getting the work done that I require in the future,
