I don’t understand why people let their orders go late.
As a buyer it is intensely irritating. I placed an order recently where it was to take 8 days, with extras. There was one message to say he had received it but nothing after that. When it went late I messaged him and he told me it would be almost another day! Come on! If you have orders that are going to be late, send a message to the buyer and tell them and give an updated ETA. Don’t wait for them to contact you.
It’s fairly standard business practice and buyers should expect you to keep to your delivery date.
When you get to a certain amount of orders, increase your gig delivery time. If you suddenly get a lot of orders, pause your gigs. Don’t sacrifice your professionalism because you are holding out to get more gigs, focus on doing your best at the ones you have. When I get too busy I use vacation mode. All of my regulars know that if they see me on vacation mode that they can still contact me if they need something and I will get it done.
All of the tools are their to make sure being late doesn’t happen, or at least is very rare. There is no excuse for letting 1 in every 5 orders go late. Adjust gig delivery time, limit the number of orders, be proactive, have a plan, know your busiest days, remember the days you won’t be able to get work and the ones you will be able to focus on work for 12 hours.
