Around 2 weeks ago, business was good. I had multiple orders in and I was working on them. However, I got into personnal issues and I didn’t have time for one smaller order. Me and the buyer agreed to cancel, and I told him I would do it when I had more time. I know I should have just extended the delivery, but I cancelled and it is now too late.
The problem is, I didn’t have 10 orders. By cancelling 1 order, my cancellation rate with stay under 90% until I make 10 orders completely.
The issue is that I am not getting any buyer the traditional way. Maybe because the cancellation rate got me lower into the ranking ? Maybe it is the unfair bad review I got from someone who tried to scam me…
Anyway, I usually get most of my orders with Buyers Request. However, you can’t make any buyers request with a cancellation rate under 90%.
So now, I am stuck. I have no way to get my cancellation rate up because I don’t have orders. I can’t have orders, because my gig isn’t ranking well (partly because of my cancellation rate) and I can’t make buyers request because my cancellation rate is too low.
Sharing on social media is not an option. I don’t have followers on Twitter, Facebook, etc, that would need any of my services.
What can I do ?
Thank you for your time !
