I have a copyediting gig. In my basic service, I edit up to 1,000 words in 24 hours. Any document longer than that requires additional days to complete. This morning I woke up to a huge order - someone had ordered my gig 14 times. I now have 24 hours to edit a 14,000 word document (48 pages long). There is simply no way that I can possibly complete this order within this time frame. I have many other orders to complete, and I also work a full time job. I requested the delivery time be extended, but if the buyer doesn’t respond/comply, what are my options? Cancel the gig and hurt my rankings?
How was the buyer even able to make this purchase to begin with? I normally charge a fee for expedited delivery. Are buyers able to get around the fee by ordering gig multiples? This does not seem fair for sellers.
