recently I just startet a gig here where I offered a gig “brand name ideas”.
After a good start with 5 happy customers (5 stars) in a week, I got a buyer who immediately wanted to cancel the job after I delivered the ideas.
I put around 3 hours into researching and brainstorming, for 15€. It’s actually a joke but I thought I am creative and I can earn some extra pocket money here.
I declined the cancellation of the gig and decided to rather get a negative rating than a cancelled gig, because my ideas where good in my opinion and I already put time and thinking into it. I get that sometimes people have a different taste and to everyone is on the same page but this is just not acceptable.
The buyer reported the gig to fiverr and they approved the cancellation. So I lost 3 hours of work, and the money. And got a cancellation on my profile. The buyer didn’t even tried to solve the problems via a revision.
I will never ever again use fiverr as a service. This website is bad for the industry and bad for every creative out there.
