Irresponsible buyer


Hello Forum Members,
Hope everyone doing well. I’m now worried about an order. Buyer ordered me a day ago and gave me wrong login information for his website. in this case, i can’t complete his task. I did message him many times but he didn’t reply yet. But delivery time showed LATE. So what should do i now?
Anyone suggest me please


I suggest using the resolution centre to cancel the order. State the reason as: “I didn’t receive enough information from the buyer” or “The buyer will order again”.

Of course you’ll lose the revenue for this order, but that’s much better than getting an automated 1 star review which will happen if he cancels after 24hr has passed since the deadline.

Hope that helps! I’d also recommended reaching out to him via the inbox prompting him to reorder and send the correct information.

Good luck,
Matt (xqggqx)


Thanks for your reply. if i cancel it then it will affect on my profile, i mean gig will be lost ranking



Please take care to send a cancellation request through before 24 hours after the deadline. This way it will be considered “mutual” and your profile and reputation will be unaffected.

If the order is still undelivered after 1 day past the deadline and the buyer cancels, a 1-star review will be automatically left on your gig which will hurt sales significantly. I highly recommend taking the advice in my previous message to avoid this.

Already opened a dispute. But it’s really disgusting when buyer doesn’t reply :rage: Anyway thanks for your help


If that’s disgusting, then how will you feel like after years and years of hundreds (if not thousands) of unresponsive buyers and late warnings? :smiley:

I’ve had them all, and you can’t do much or anything about it. Some buyers will have perfect reasons not to respond (i.e. unforeseen family or business problems), some will be on vacation since it’s that time of the year, and others will think they’ve given you the right info and return after they know the order should be completed.

It’s life, it’s unpredictable, not disgusting :smiley:


Its disgustingly unpredictable :joy:


next time when buyer information not suitable for your work i suggest you to open dispute “I didn’t receive enough information from the buyer” otherwise late orders very effected in your gig ranking.


Thank you so much :slight_smile:
