There are things that I don’t like about buyers and things that annoy me about the Fiverr platform that I can overlook because I do well here. However, what I can’t look past is the fact that I woke up to a chargeback from two jobs I did for someone nearly two months ago.
I wrote pages and pages of website content for now ex-user *********. I can say the name, because he’s no longer an active account. Not against the rules.
These pages of content in two jobs came just over $600 (before Fiverr’s cut). Now, when I wake up to a chargeback and lose $600 out of my Fiverr account, that’s not something I’m going to chalk up to a bad buyer. This is solely on Fiverr.
Not protecting every $5, that’s something, I get it. But not covering a $600 chargeback for a Top Rated Seller who made you $30,000 last year? That’s just bad form. Sure, it’s selfish, but that’s a car payment, house payment for others, even a few months’ work in some countries.
Fiverr…do better. Be better. You expect it out of us, we have to start expecting it out of you.
