I’ve had this happen to me a few times: A Buyer selecting Extra Fast (mine is $40 for all Gigs) just so the Buyer can reach a specific purchase amount (usually what I quoted for the job). Don’t get me wrong… I totally appreciate all my clients and acknowledge how important you are to me. But here are reasons it is incorrect to assume it is okay to order Extra Fast unless it’s for the right reason:
- Extra Fast is an “additional” fee for delivering a rush order. It is not a “substitute”
- If turn-around is 5 days (for example), but rush is 2 days… Most sellers will likely stick with the 5 days. As a result, the system red flags the order in big LATE letters. Every hour that it’s not delivered, the messages to Sellers start taking a scolding tone
- I believe it can negatively impact a Sellers Fiverr standing… which can result in showing up really low or not showing up at all on search results. This is the part that really hurts Sellers
Please read the gig extras carefully. If you need to reach a specific purchase amount, it only takes a few second to navigate and utilize the drop-down for multiple quantity. If it ends up you have to purchase a second time to meet the purchase amount, please do so. Another minute or so to purchase accordingly is fair and not a lot to ask.
