Order Cancelled Mutually, But Affecting My Performance

Six months of dedicated service earned me a Level 1 recognition.
Suddenly I received an order from an unknown buyer and straight sent an order that is noway within my scope. The buyer not even chatted before placing the order.
So I approached the resolution center and got the order cancelled by mutual agreement. But this is affecting my performance and shows me a notification that my order completion rate is less than 90.
I am a bit confused and frustrated.

  1. The work was beyond my scope of any Gig.
  2. The buyer did not discuss anything regarding his/her requirement before placing the order. So I did not have a slightest idea.

This notification of demotion again is a bit frustrating. More over, this has affected my Gig visibility as well.

What should I do?

I wish there was some kind of help I could offer but we all are having this situation at times. You do have some time to get another order and hopefully bring up your rating.

All cancellations affect our rating and ranking. It’s frustrating but that’s how it is.

Thanks @misscrystal @mariashtelle1. But my next evaluation is due on January 15, 2020. Considering this to be a festive season, and if I am unable to complete any new order would I be demoted to the “New Seller” level again?

unfortunately yes. (20 char)

So frustrating! Pray I can complete a small order at least.

it will take more than one order… it is a percentage ratio, you can check @maitasun two topics that she created on how to calculate your ratio.


Thanks a lot @mariashtelle1.

Thanks for directing the OP to both topics, María. They’ll be of help! :slightly_smiling_face:

Here you go, @chiradip_b. Please take your time to read through. :wink:

@maitasun. Thanks. This link is really helpful,. Need to read very slowly to assimilate the information.


You’re most welcome, @chiradip_b. :slightly_smiling_face:

Yes, both topics are long and, indeed, need to be read slowly, but worth the time you’ll spend doing so. :wink:
