So I’ve been watching something that has me a little disturbed. I have been getting a ton of work lately, and then it all dried up. Now, I understand things go in waves - but this just seems odd. This isn’t a post about that though - because there are thousands other like it. However, I’m wondering if what I’m about to post is related.
Let’s say a customer orders a Gig with a completion time of 1 day, or 3 days (doesn’t matter). I deliver the order within time. The buyer then listens and decides they want a change and sends it back for a revision. Unfortunately, the timer doesn’t start over, so more often than not the order comes back as #LATE - Delivering late orders will result in a 10% order reduction.
Well funny that… after a few of those #LATE orders, all of my orders have dried up. Yet, the #LATE wasn’t my fault. I delivered on time, the end user requested a change, fiverr decided it would keep counting and mark the order late even though the end user requested a modification at the 11th hour… sometimes literally AFTER the 11th hour.
Come on Fiverr – this is just bad.
