I have been working on fiverr for a long time. In my journey, I am humbled to work with many great buyers, and some not so great ones. But, this time it is very different.
My average selling price for a WordPress website is $150. I use genesis framework and build custom child themes for my clients. Sometimes, I use premium parent themes and build my own custom child theme to suit my buyer’s requirements.
More than 15 buyers contacted me to design their website. They didn’t agree on my rates but eventually agreed to work with me after they realized that most sellers on fiverr sell web design related gigs for more than $180.
But as soon as I submit the order for review, they started sending me new things. They wanted new features that was not mentioned and they wanted to add more content but they didn’t have the content so I have to wait till they get the content ready. Now, to make me wait, they kept on requesting modifications. The webdesign was complete. The website was developed and deployed as promised. But still they kept on requesting modifications.
Eventually, I got frustrated and mutually cancelled more than 4 orders. Because in some cases, sellers thought they own me after they place the order and they can ask for whatever they want…, and in other cases, the seller didn’t provide me with correct login credentials to either their Cpanel or the wordpress admin panel itself.
I don’t know if you face the same problems but for me it is really frustrating and I am thinking of leaving fiverr because of this reason. I am fed by people trying to rip me off even after we agree to some arrangement in the initial conversation.
