Whats the deal with time wasting developers

I have had to. Angel more orders with developers that waste my time saying their working on something the entire time for the order, then they either 1. Try to bait and switch wanting more money and time, or 2. End up saying they can’t do the job and can’t provide any visual proof they were working on anything at all.

How do I report redeveloped like this for fiverr to remove ban them for repeat offenses. I’m sure I’m not the only one with this issue


No, you are not alone in this. And it’s not just developer gigs.

Same here. I’ve largely had a pretty good Fiverr experience but the bait/switch prices has to be addressed. Its a waste of time and I doubt I would have stayed long if it were my initial experience. Allow serious sellers and buyers a platform free of this. The experience below has simply happened too often.

Report the Seller, that is against the ToS. (Fiverr relies on it’s users to help report fraud.)

Misrepresenting Gig elements
Do not:

  • Raise the price of your Gig service in personal messages before or after purchase.Bait-and-switch marketing is not acceptable.

thank you very much. I think I am going to report the last time this happened.

you can just order the $40 package on their page, you don need to ask the seller permission to order, and the seller will do the work , unless they want to cancel the order, which they won’t because it will affect their ranking.
