I’m tired of being ripped off! Why are fiverr buyers hard to trust?
I’m a writer and I have had issues with fiverr buyers who would send me a message and behave like they would really place an order but they don’t - especially after I work on the job and send part of it for free.
I only do this when the buyer explains that he wants to judge my skill before he accepts my custom offer
I will spend days working on the first part that would be free and when I finally send to them, they might not respond again or might send message and say that a top quality piece is sub par.
The truth is, it could be collections of short articles and I would send part of it for free - as requested by the buyer or it could be collection of short stories or poems.
They usually promise to order if the quality is good.
And with good faith, I used to do this - so that the buyer will judge my skill before I proceed.
But I feel buyers who don’t respond
Or buyers who say my high quality piece is sub par were never planning to order…
They just wanted to receive the piece for free and I know if they do that to other sellers, they will ultimately have the entire work they need without actually paying a $.
I have decided that I will no longer send samples or extracts or paragraphs from a larger piece for free. I will only send for @ least 5$.
The truth is fiverr platform favours the buyer more, and I get that… But, I have made my decision.
