I have trouble with some of my clients. buyers were giving me orders for a long time. But he asks to do them for a low price than my gig packages price.
Because he is a returning buyer, I did his work with my best. he said that he paid after completing the job and start without placing the order first. and when I asked he said that his friend will do the payment for me. After a new seller or another buyer will do the order placement. but for a very low price. (ex: If I said the amount is $80, he will place for $15). And when I asked why, he said that his friend(the actual buyer) told him to place the order for this amount. When I again asked why he told him like that from the actual buyer, He said " Don’t worry I will pay the remaining balance. I have some pending funds, and I will do the payment when it clear." And recently I did work for his friend and the work was given by the client that I said above. After the job completes, he said his friend was in the hospital and he had to handle the work. I gave him a discount because he said that he had an issue with funds. But still, I haven’t received any of the amounts. I sent some custom offers but he doesn’t accept them. I contact him several times recently, and he always said “I’m preparing your order”.
and the other client also did the same. but he did a $50 payment for the work of $130. I think he is doing drop servicing. Create UI designs from me and send them to another developer to make the app. and the final app will give to another client. he did 2 works. the remaining balance of the first one isn’t given yet, and for the second one also. He also said he had pending payments and when I sent the offers he also doesn’t accept them.
As sellers, do you have any experience like this? What should I do for this? I have to get about $300 from these two buyers
