Indeed, the most coveted accolade that all sellers wish to aspire to…the shiny, gleaming, practically incandescent…TRS level!
Actually, it ain’t all that…speaking from my own experience of course.
Yes, it’s nice that your earnings clear quicker, but I had gotten used to/accepted the 3 days to complete, 2 weeks to clear situation.
My orders haven’t increased; at least not yet anyway - they’ve stayed the same for the most part. There’s possibly a misconception that because you’ve been hoisted to the top of the pile that you will be so inundated with work, that your earnings will make King Solomon blush. Finally, you’ll be able to add some more Koi Carp to the pond and extra acreage to the grounds.
What I do see an increase in, however, is this:
Time wasters, a.k.a. Tyre-Kickers.
MORE people asking for samples.
Buyers placing orders, but failing to order the appropriate extra, so I have to message them and they don’t respond = cancellation.
Buyer places an order and then messages me saying that they ‘didn’t see the part about 2 days delivery - can you do it in 24 hours? It’s only 119 words.’ So I told them that I can upgrade the order once it’s live and it’ll be an additional $20. Again, no response and the order is in limbo = another cancellation.
Once you are allowed into the hallowed halls of TRS, it seems that you become more of a target than anything. Anyone else having a similar experience?
UPDATE: Buyer finally responded with, ‘can you help me cancel the order my budget is only $10. I will check out another recorder’. A buyer incidentally, who is also a seller with a fake profile image - unless she is also American as well as ********** and has a make-up blog on youtube under the different name of ******* (thanks Google Image Search!), but somehow, I doubt it.
