After 9 months on the platform and a 5-star rating over the course of 159 orders, I finally got scammed.
Stay away from Buyer “*****”
He/she ordered without reaching out to me first for an expensive gig I have. I always ask for communication first to ensure we are a match… they did not.
After spending considerable time working on the project, giving more than was even ordered, and delivering ahead of schedule, they promptly opened a Dispute (rather than simply requesting a Revision), and requested to cancel.
I immediately agreed (I don’t need the headache of dealing with A-holes like this).
Fiverr — We have been asking for his option for years — ALLOW SELLERS TO BLOCK BUYERS!
To take it a step further - if Fiverr is really trying to move more into the “professional” realm with the new “Pro” designation, etc., Sellers should even be able to REQUIRE communication with a Buyer first.
