Recently I had a buyer who ordered my Vector Tracing gig. In my gig description, faqs and EVEN requirements I warn about certain kinds of images.
SO, a buyer ignored these warnings and ordered the gig anyway. In the past I would cancel the ordered as soon as possible (to not getting a bad rating), and I would get stats impaired. But lately, it seems this kind of buyer increased. Anyway, now when this kind of buyers come, I work the order anyway. The result wont be great for a basic $5 order, BUT it’s what can be done within the requests made by the buyer and the order placed.
I did the same with this buyer. Then he requested a cancellation. I explained I wouldn’t do this for buyer who ignore my gig description and warnings.
Then he requested a modification. I explained that to get a better result, I will need a better file provided from their side, and charges A LOOOOOT more than just $5 due the time it will demand.
After this, the buyer threatened me saying: “Okay no problem, that gives a bad rating. Then I will do a few more orders and book a few hundred bad reviews on your profile. ”
I immediately reported the message and thanked the buyer for advising me.
SO, why this topic?
Yes, sellers are still against the wall for such abusive buyers, but I earned my good reputation along the 6 years I’m no fiverr. What i mean is to not to worry with bad ratings of abusive buyer. These will not bring you down. As they can write bad things in a review, you can also defend yourself explaining their acts. And also block such users later, when the order is completed.
If you want to get respected as a seller, start respecting yourself first. Do not be susceptible to abusive behaviors.
I hope it can encourage other sellers to no be abused for bad intended buyers.
