Oh, I think this could be a very bad idea. There are already trust concerns when it comes to some sellers and their ability to complete an order professionally. If a buyer placed an order with a certain seller, they are expecting that seller to do the work. Transferring that buyer’s order to another seller – that the buyer does not know, or has not been able to research – only adds to the trust concerns.
Look at it this way, how would you feel if you went into your local McDonald’s and ordered a cheeseburger. After your order is placed, and as you wait for your cheeseburger to be made, one of the McDonald’s employees comes out and tells you that they can’t finish making your cheeseburger, so, they emailed your cheeseburger order to the really crappy, dirty, disgusting burger restaurant across town.
Someone you’ve never talked to, you’ve never seen, you don’t trust, and who might not even be caring about making the cheeseburger the way you asked at McDonald’s, is making your cheeseburger somewhere else. How would you feel? Would you want to go all the way across town for that dirty burger, or would you complain to the McDonald’s employee and insist that THEY make you another cheeseburger… because you ordered your cheeseburger from McDonald’s, and you expect McDonald’s to make and deliver exactly what you ordered?
Transferring a buyer’s order to another freelance seller to complete is a very bad idea for the buyer, and could seriously damage the first seller’s reputation and trustworthiness.
