Hey guys! It’s the disaster known as me again! I got another story for you today!
So I just woke up and I received this express order for a voice recording to be delivered in 24 hours. Normally I prefer to have the buyer hit me up before requesting those to make sure I’m available, but I choose to set up the gig that way so I’m aware of the consequences and pitfalls I might run into.
I promptly respond to the buyer after checking out the script they attached as one of my requirement and swiftly got to work. It was a relatively quick job but I was done in 20 minutes. The thing that gave me pause though was that they requested I sent my voice over to them through their email. They also worded it strangely, as if imply I could do that as well in the future but I just assumed it was poor word choicing. The also had to space out their email address in the message request so Fiverr wouldn’t flag them, I guess?
A little while later I get an email from Fiverr telling me that this buyer I’m working with is new and this is their first time ordering on the platform, so I should do my best and give them a wonderful experience.
I think to myself that maybe this was the reason why the buyer requested I deliver outside of Fiverr? They’re probably new to the platform and don’t know how things work. Also they probably want it sent to their email for ease of future access?
But on the oooooother hand, I’m not too naive enough to not be aware of the possibility that this is just a bad situation waiting to happen. One of those many “bad buyer” cases/stories I’ve read so much about on this forum.
Safe to say I’ve finished the work they requested, delivered it, and told them that I will also send it over to their email once they mark my work as complete. They did (EVEN GAVE ME A 200% TIP!!!) and I sent the email.
Is that okay? Did I do good?
Would really appreciate any advice the veterans on here could give me regarding this type of specific situation
Thanks in advance!
