Hello, I’ve recently had an unusual experience with a buyer and I’m curious how other sellers might handle a similar situation.
A buyer recently ordered a gig where I offer to write lyrics and a melody for a song. This includes a rough recording of a singing performance to show how the words are meant to be sung over the music that they send me. I offer two revisions with this service for a 4 day deadline. Everything went well up until when I delivered my first version of work. The buyer seemed very happy with my work but kept waiting until 7-12 hours before the deadline would expire and then would give me an excuse to have me extend the gig. This happened 3 times and the gig was extended by 14 days without a revision. They kept asking me to keep waiting for them to record the song in case they make changes to it and then they would make the revisions but I couldn’t get a date or number of days that they would commit to. At this point our communication broke down and they kept misquoting past messages which I kept correcting them respectively. I ended up canceling the gig because they seemed very displeased that the gig was going to end without them giving me the revisions. Am I wrong to think they were taking advantage of how Fiverr works? The deadlines are all clearly stated in all my gigs so there was no surprise.
