So as you read my title, some of us experienced this thing already. And it really annoys it every time it happens. I am talking about Buyers purchasing Gig Extras after delivering the order.
But you might think, what is wrong with purchasing Gig Extras then?
Well, this week I had 3 the same situations, and I am afraid that it will keep happening.
So, most of the times, I get orders at midnight (my time) from America. I sleep for about 8+ hours. So when I wake up, (and for this example, it is 24-hour delivery), there’s about less than 16 hours left for the order. I am not always available to do this job immediately after I wake up, since it’s a part-time job for me, I got other things to do. Then there’s about 12 hours left to the delivery and I finish the work within less than 9 hours left. I deliver the order and I go sleep. At some point at midnight, a Buyer decides to purchase one of my Gig Extra packages. That’s a good thing, BUT! Once he purchases it, the timer continues. I wake up and I see this: Gig Extra purchased; Your delivery is late. Delivery stats decreases, you get less orders. You, as a Seller, didn’t do anything wrong. At all!
I mean…why this?
Shouldn’t we have compensated time? It could use a similar system as revisions do. If a Buyer buys a Gig Extra, we should get another 24 hours to deliver it. As of purchasing Gig Extra while the order is not delivered yet, I understand, it doesn’t need that, but if the order is delivered, and in my case, most of the times, I deliver it on the evenings, and then a Buyer purchases a Gig Extra while I sleep and the time counts again.
So in conclusion, we should get more time to deliver the order if it was delivered already and then someone purchased a Gig Extra for it.
