Not sure if anyone else has had the same experiences as me.
Joined fiverr a while ago and recently started getting orders. Every buyer expects to pay next to nothing (which before I even start makes the work tricky).
Buyers ask for say 3 things changed on their website, then they ask for more. I can’t decline completing extra work for them because they dispute the order, I also can’t agree because they aren’t paying any more.
I have tried to get buyers to pay extra for more tasks, some do, some don’t. Regardless I have to complete anyway.
Often the order delivers and they don’t accept, they keep the order in the delivered stage and then they ask me for more out of scope work. I have to complete it otherwise I’ll end up with a bad review and that effects me in the long term.
It’s like being held a prisoner.
I had enough last week when an order that had been accepted, the buyer had agreed the order was complete and then accepted delivery. The earnings were pending clearance, the buyer then asked for additional work to be done that was not paid for in the gig and did not want to pay any more. I had had enough of the buyer and did not reply to his request, 2 days later the earnings for $250 have been taken back by fiverr.
There is 0 protection for sellers on this site and it’s a disgrace. Even after orders are delivered they are not safe. Support have ignored my ticket since I called them out on it. Unlike PayPal (which does things well), Fiverr don’t ask to hear from each party in the matter, they just agree with the buyer automatically.
I will be deleting my Fiverr account as soon as the remaining balance clears. What an absolute joke.
