So I was sitting around, munching on pistachios and minding my own business, when I received a notification on my phone that a certain buyer had cancelled our orders.
See, I could understand if this were one of my ongoing or delivered orders that buyers had been unhappy with or something. But these were completed orders for which the buyer had given reviews, and even tipped because they were happy with my work. I had worked really hard on those translations, and I was really proud of them.
My order completion rate just dropped by 4%, and I lost $50-ish bucks. The money part sucks, but what sucks more is that I thought I’d done a good job. And now the buyer’s account has disappeared, likely because it was a Paypal chargeback.
I’m probably pretty lucky that this is only the first time this has happened to me and that I still have the reviews for show. But it’s been a rough last few days, and this really only makes things worse. I’m paranoid and stressed out now.
Not sure what the point of this post was, since I can’t really do much about the whole thing aside from sit around and be upset.
