I know this has been said before, but I’d like to reiterate some new features that will benefit all users on this platform.
Since practically everyone here have 5 reviews, it’s useless. Trying to find a 5 star seller is like trying to find in a crowded bar. It’s everywhere.
What would be helpful is if you’d color code (or some other distinguishing method) to signify the type of review. As an example:
- Red for orders over $50
- Green for orders over $100
- Blue for orders over $250
How is this useful?
As a serious buyers, when I purchase a $10 article for, let’s say 250 words, I don’t expect research of any kind and the bare minimum. If there are a few typos, as long as it’s coherent and flows well, I give 5 stars.
If a $200 article writer gives me same quality, it’ll be a different review.
Sometimes, I want quick and easy, other times I want quality. Filtering reviews by the amount makes it easier for me and less chance of getting scammed.
I think the cancellation % and # should be displayed on both buyer & freelancer’s profile.
A potential client with high cancellation rate is a bad sign. It would give the freelancer a quick gauge not to work with him/her.
A freelancer with high cancellation is a bad sign that the client will waste their time.
It’s a win - win for both party.
