PAUSE gigs (need more info) button! Like if you agree :)


#1

This is one thing I think Fiverr desperately needs! I offer services and in order to complete those services I need certain information.



For example, if I format a Create Space book cover I need to know:

-Book size

-Page type (white/cream/color)

-Number of pages



I ask for all of this info when they order, but very often people leave out one of these pieces of info.



Now sometimes, if I’m swamped, I might not start my gig till a few hours before it’s due, knowing it won’t take long to get it done… but then… oh no!! I don’t have all the info I need.



I msg the buyer but don’t hear back till after the order is “late”.



Sometimes even if I am top of things, the buyer is just slow responding and my gig gets marked late.



99% of my late orders are due to circumstances like this.



I was hoping Fiverr could provide a “PAUSE” or more appropriately a “NEED MORE INFO” button that the seller can push and shoot a message to the the buyer requesting the info.



This would pause the timer and help avoid getting late orders when it shouldn’t happen.



Like if you agree!!

With my family tree gig I always start a file at least 2 hours after receiving the order and also drop my client a message 24 hrs after the initial order is no information has been submitted
