I’m not sure what everyone else’s experience is, but I get a lot of really odd, dysfunctional, ignorant, and unprofessional buyers on this website. Outside of fiverr, I’ve never had problem, my clients are always happy, communicate well and allow me to do my job. But on fiverr I get so many clients that can’t communicate, ask to do things that aren’t possible and get mad me for it, or blame me for things they caused that I can’t do anything about such as their terrible performance or equipment they recorded with. (I do audio mixing, mastering, and editing)
I really wish there was no penalty for cancelling orders because with the number of clients that give me massive headaches, I would just cancel these orders since these are clients in real life I would fire or not work with. Many times what these projects pay are just not worth the hassle of dealing with a an abusive, dysfunctional client, that has you running around in circles do to their ignorance.
