To be completely honest… At this point I would have given up on fiverr.
I’m trying to get some virtual assistant work done and I’ve got every Joe , Dick , and Harry trying to hit me with their best offers…
And here are some of those offers:
“Hi,I Will to work with that task and ism professionwl in my work”
“Hi sir , I will do this work properly and provide you by time. thanks”
… Sure the rest are decent… but the real problem here is I’ve spoken with at least 5 people and if they didn’t bail on me before placing the order … they simply lied to me to get the order placed… then wasted my time for 2-3 days and tried to cancel by lying about some technical problem they’ve had.
I mean … really … there are so many improvements that need to be made here… It’s no wonder things have been wobbly lately. We need to improve the buyer/seller relationship and the buyer experience as well as the seller experience… I liked everything much better in 2.0 with how it all looked and the rating system and everything. The only positive change in a while has been the additional options upon cancelling to allow us to extend the timer and this new forum (maybe)… Did I miss something? Gig metadata and more extras , gig packages? But did this help anyone or make it harder? Its arguably both. This is basically just a rant to say …
If you can’t properly perform the task asked in a buyer’s request… Don’t answer that thing man!!
I can totally understand why I see some really pissed off buyers requests now
LOL… I TOTALLY UNDERSTAND.
– Check this out though…
This one guy cancelled on me telling me his IP server went down and he couldnt get on it to perform my task… So he links me the VPN site he uses… Well … I just happen to be the face of one of the most popular review sites for such VPN services… So … he linked me a site that I had a video review already done for … and I linked it back to him … I told him that service was EXCELLENT and he could watch my 10 minute review video where I installed the VPN , tested it , and gave a detailed review…
He basically tucked his tail between his legs and began to tell me that I shouldnt call him a liar…
I ended by telling him he better run far away from my buyer’s requests next time because I just love to tell fiverr support about when I’m being dicked around on this platform… I havent heard from him again.
So annoying though… I get it … people are trying to start up… and I wanted to give a 0 star review guy a chance with such a simple task… But they basically just lied to me when they couldnt do it.
