So I signed up to fiver last week.
I’m in this for fun, so I submitted a personal project that I’ve been working on as a challange to see what people made of it.
I gave this to four people. Admitadly, I priced the job at $10 - but one person asked for more and I gave it to them, the rest just chased me for the work promising that they could deliver.
It turns out that not a single one of these sellers actually hit the specification that I gave them. Every single entry had a glaring error. So, of these 4 sellers, I probably spent over an hour talking to each one, often answering the same question repeatedly.
I thought all the entries were crap, but as I was only paying $10 to each of them, I felt too guilty asking them to do more so I just paid out. Cheaper for me to just pay the $10 and hire someone else that explain the list of things wrong with the design.
So I’ve put the 4 submissions onto a website and posted a fiver job to review them, rate them all on style, appearance etc and so far I’ve had 10 people bid for the job of reviewing these sites - not one in thier request actually seems to have read my posting.
Everything is just so much effort getting the point accross that I think I might just cut my losses and move on.
Have any buyers had a good experience on fiver?
