Taking Risk in orders


#1

Shall I take those orders which I think I can do but seem hard or shall we only take those about which we are sure I can do this.

Well, the Fiverr Academy pages said something like this:

“It would be unwise to accept this project as it is out of your realm of knowledge.”

Accepting a project that you are not sure you’ll be able to deliver (as requested by the client & on time as well) can lead to bad stuff like cancellations, refunds, negative reviews, plenty of lost time, bad experience, etc.

I, myself, wouldn’t take on a project if I’m not 100% sure I can do it.


#3

That is correct but what if orders are not coming? We need to take risk for those who are ready or just wait and keep calm?


#4

You could take such a risk, but it will be your fault if you’re not able to do it and have trouble, and you cannot complain later on that Fiverr is not helping you - you have to take full responsibility if you decide to take such risks, especially in case of failures.

I think I’ll become a brain surgeon tomorrow - okay, it might be a risk as I know nothing about brain surgery, but I’m not getting much business as a plumber…

Similarly daft! :sunny:

Please only take on orders you KNOW you can complete successfully.

Don’t take something you are not 100%.

If you do, you are risking one or more of the following:

  • Cancellation
  • Bad review
  • Paypal Chargeback
  • Complaint to Customer Support by buyer
  • Lastly, wasting time working on a project - for $0.

:heavy_plus_sign: What would you do, if during the process you get an order that you can do?

You’ve just ticked off a buyer who may never return to 5r, making other sellers (including) yourself lose out on $$.

I prefer not to take an order if I’m not 100% sure I can do it.
I believe, Our buyers don’t bring their project here for experiment.
