I posted that I needed a new logo on September 16, 2016 and was contacted by quite a few sellers promising to deliver. I chose two sellers after looking at samples of work.
To make a long story short, I gave both sellers the same job, with drawings and information. I PAID both what they requested, did not quibble. Both charged well over the five dollars which I thought was fair if I was to get quality work. My design was simple.
One seller delivered on time (THEY picked the delivery date, which was three days, not me), but the work was not what I expected. They ignored my drawing, went for some clipart and took the easy route. I asked for a revision. Promptly returned a revision that was subpar.
I told the first seller to keep the money for their effort, said I would not post a bad review. I posted no review at all.
I was still hopeful…the second seller had given me a 7 day timeline. On the seventh day I received the work. It was not like I had requested. I requested a revision. Still not correct. The revision was closer to my vision, but there were things I could not use, so askd for another very simple revision.
I had sent a query two days ago and was told the second revision would be done in a few hours. I am still waiting. This is the twelveth day for the second seller.
I was very flexible on my timeline. Now it’s been almost two weeks and I have NOTHING to show for my patience. I’m still waiting to see what happens with the second seller. Hopefully the work will come back soon.
MY TIP TO SELLERS…PLEASE DO NOT PROMISE WHAT YOU CANNOT OR DO NOT INTEND TO DELIVER. KNOW YOUR ABILITY AND BE HONEST WITH A BUYER.
I’ve read these forums and was amazed how many complaints about buyers that the sellers post on this site. It’s like all sellers think they deliver and the buyers are deadbeats (I’m sure there are plenty). I’m not a deadbeat, I paid what was asked without quibbling. I left each seller choose the delivery timeline. I couldn’t be any more fair.
I hope to get my revision back soon as requested AND I hope it is correct. I had even planned on sending a tip but now I’m not so sure I want to do that after this experience. I have more work I need done but you folks are leaving a bad taste in my mouth.
CONFUSED and a bit DISGRUNTLED
