I have to say, I’ve used Fiverr maybe 3 times. EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. the seller does not make the deadline as promised because they suddenly have become ill or have an ill family member. I believed it the first time. I was skeptical the second time. And now that its happened again, the third time in a row, I’ve decided this will likely be my last Fiverr purchase. (All different sellers, by the way)
Every time I checked reviews of the sellers, made sure I clearly communicated what I want and what I expected, and started a dialogue where the seller appeared to be on track. Typically an hour prior to the due date time I send some sort of “Looking forward to seeing what you have for me” message they suddenly have an illness.
When I offer to cancel to lighten their load I get some sort of aggressive message back stating that they are working on my request RIGHT NOW and to BE PATIENT and they will have it soon.
… I’ve developed a mistrust for the sellers on Fiverr. Am I alone in this experience?
