Just a suggestion but it would be great if the site would alert me (or the client, or both of us) that we are browsing the site using different currencies.
The reasoning behind this request is this situation that just happened to me: I just had some messages back and forth with a potential client, and I mentioned my estimate in text in a message along with the turnaround and other details. She agreed to the terms, so I sent a custom offer that reflected them. My client immediately asked me why it was showing her a different figure. Turns out that she was browsing the site in her local currency and on her end my initial offer reflected what looked like a last minute 20% increase.
Now, I know I can clarify that the offers are in US dollars but I feel that there should be something in place to alert me or them of this, it totally blind-sided me, and I’ve been on the site for years. I did not loose the gig, but it could have easily happened. The appearance of having a change last minute in the eyes of the client would seem sleazy and it’s a bad look. I do not ever want that to happen again.
I would like to, if possible, know which currency they see when browsing and maybe even have a Fiverr’s exchange rate showing or something similar. I do not want to concern clients with googling currency exchange rates because it adds resistance. I want to be able to provide a quote in their currency right from the site whilst I discuss the terms with them, without having to send a custom offer, which seems a bit cold and impersonal as a first impression.
Thanks in advance and all the best,
