Why buyers are so selfish?


#1

Every buyers want their work complete in low budget but their work are huge in quantity at least they have to understand sellers and they are not paying to sellers handsome amount! :disappointed_relieved::disappointed_relieved::disappointed_relieved::disappointed_relieved::disappointed_relieved::disappointed_relieved:


#2

What they may want and what they get from us are two different things sometimes. :wink:


#3

But at-least they have to understand their work load as well they have to pay us


#4

It is up to sellers to tell them how it is. They either like it or they can leave.

Buyers do not tell sellers what is going to happen. Sellers tell buyers.

Misscrystal you are right as you are thinking but you can’t understand my feeling what am I talking about :disappointed_relieved:


#6

I tell buyers what I will do and how much it costs. If they don’t like it they can leave. Not hard to understand. No reason to be upset over buyers.


#7

Thanks for your kind suggestion you are right on your side…

There was a buyer who came to the forum ages ago and created a topic about sellers being selfish because they wanted to get paid more than $5. The buyer exposed himself as an idiot with no concept of quality or value.

Now we have you saying buyers are selfish because they want everything cheap.

Why can’t buyers like the one who posted and sellers like you just wake up and not deal with people you don’t want to instead of posting nonsense topics?

Now, I am happy to listen this sweet answer I am fully agree with you dear eoinfinnegan! Please let me know is there any solution on fiverr about this problem??


#10

Yes, just say no to the buyer who won’t pay for what they are asking for.
Actually, just today I got a 3.7 star review from a buyer who I refused to do more work for.

Buyers are unpredictable. I look at my competitors and this happens.

  1. They charge more and get more orders
  2. They charge less and get more orders
  3. They have few orders
  4. They have no orders

Besides, we’re all selfish, you should read Ayn Rand, we’re all looking for our self-interest. What do you think buying a car is about? It’s not about helping the car salesman although if he helps you find the perfect car, he’ll benefit his bottom line. But if the car salesman is too greasy, too pushy, if he’s annoying, then he’ll lose that sale.

I remember wanting to buy a Honda Civic and being disappointed at how expensive they were. $20,000 for the cheapest new one, and it didn’t even have leather seats. My car salesman suggested a used HR-V with 10,000 miles, leather seats, navigation, rearview camera, for $17,000. So I ended up with a car I absolutely like. My point is the seller adapted to his situation, he knew he wasn’t going convince me on the Civic so he found an alternative.

Fiverr is the same way. If buyers aren’t buying at your price point, either adjust the offer or adjust the price. Maybe you’re doing too much or too little. I will make changes until either the orders come or stop coming.

Yes you are right dude I am also depressed! :disappointed_relieved::disappointed_relieved::disappointed_relieved::disappointed_relieved::disappointed_relieved:

I am upset :disappointed_relieved::disappointed_relieved::disappointed_relieved::disappointed_relieved::disappointed_relieved::disappointed_relieved:

You are offering a service on fiverr so a lot of people think that can buy anything for a fiverr.

I think $30 for this is too much:
“I Will Do 90 Unique And Relevant Pr10 SEO Backlinks On Da100 Sites”

Why not do 5 or 10?

Making money on Fiverr is about volume sales, not individual sales. Most of your gigs are expensive, that’s not good when you have no reviews.

You should consider creating a niche gig for backlinks, like this guy with 3 orders in his queue.
I Will Give You High Da Vape Backlinks

Or follow this example:
I Will Help You Rank Higher In Google With My High Pr SEO Contextual Backlinks

For $5 with one day delivery, she’s doing: “50 Contextual Backlinks Do Follow High PR Premium Social Networks High Authority”

Her other packages are $15 and $85, and she has 8 in her queue. She’s also a Top Rated Seller.

Search “backlinks” and see what you find.


Since 15 days not getting orders

I never raised my prices much above $5 or $10 until I had over 2000 reviews.

Now I see newcomers in my category asking $80 with no reviews which I find amazing but they are welcome to try at least.


#19

Don’t be depressed, this is just business. Get in there and do battle to stand out from the others. No place for emotions.

Thank you sir! I am so happy to see that you cheer up me :star_struck:
