This is going a bit off-topic and the conversation is done to death so I’m not sure I can contribute something enlightening to it.
Introducing the mandatory “pay to revise” feature will increase the overall number of negative reviews and cancellations and the forum and CS will drown in complaints and sob stories.
The minimal order price is $5. The minimal extra price is also $5. Just imagine for a second the armies of indignant buyers going “I was forced to PAY DOUBLE for a minor text update”.
Fiverr was built a certain way and I don’t think they plan to do anything with the revision button. It’s my opinion based on what I’ve read, what I’ve heard and my overall experience on the platform.
I offer 2 rounds of revisions, then the person can pay $15/per round for another 3 if the revision requests are reasonable. (I don’t consider “I don’t like it” a reasonable revision request, for instance). 95% of the time it’s manageable. You say “sorry no”, people pay up. 5% of the time the experience can be quite unpleasant but I’ll take 5%.
Sellers are afraid to stand their ground and offer 67 rounds of revisions for a $5 order (it’s an actual number, I’ve seen the post about this case). I would argue that sellers like this are the part of the problem and one of the main reasons why buyers have trouble wrapping their heads around the fact that not all sellers offer unlimited revisions or any revisions at all.
Don’t get me wrong, I’d love to get “pay to revise” feature. But I don’t think fiverr’s going to implement it. You are free to add an extra for a revision and enforce it as per your gig terms.
PS I actually bought a gig from someone new recently. She delivered the files and along with that, sent me a revision extra which I could purchase if I wanted to fix something. I thought it was a pretty genius way of offering a certain amount of paid revisions.
