I’m not disagreeing with you that there’s an issue. Believe me, we’ve had our fair share of awful buyers placing orders that create an admin headache for us.
But… what you’re suggesting isn’t without it’s own issues, and the practicalities of implementing it are probably a major part of the reason why it hasn’t been implemented.
How would it work? Would I as a seller have to Approve or Reject an order before the order countdown clock starts? In which case, what happens to the many buyers who buy from us overnight, ordering 24 hour delivery? If they have to wait 8 hours for me to be awake and at my desk, I guarantee they’d stop buying.
Alternatively, you allow all orders to ‘go through’ to begin with, then give Sellers a Reject button, only to be used for orders like the ones you’ve mentioned. But, a button that allows a seller to cancel an order with no repercussions? I guarantee that would get abused…
Not to mention, buying instantly, ‘Amazon’ style is one of the key USPs of Fiverr. The whole point is you don’t have to speak to a Seller if you don’t want to. I don’t see Fiverr wanting to get rid of that.
I totally get why you’d want this - we’d like it too. I just think from a practicality perspective, it’s not as straight forward as you might think.
