So my husbands birthday is in a week, and for the past two weeks I have been looking for someone to help me make his gift—unique, amazing, original, and exactly what I had in mind. Then I came across Fiverr, thought to myself, “IM SAVED!” I seriously felt like all of the weight has been lifted off of my shoulders. I can just pay someone to look at my ideas and make them come to life! Right? I’m not quite sure. However I am very hopeful, because I did pay them already and I trust already until you’ve given me a reason not to trust you.
My ideas were of 3 things.
The first one was, might sound silly but we love these sorts of things, but I came up with the idea of creating a manga of mine and my husbands life together. Our own love story, one I can keep adding to each year. Cute right?
Okay well for $63 I ordered someone to write out 2000 words for me in script format. I gave them everything they could possibly need to really create this. Detailed story of course. I’m just bad with wording sometimes so I needed a little help.
To me, $63 is still $63. I really need this is to be spot on. Not just copied and pasted. I even sent him screen shots of the traits of the characters and what I would like for them to be like in the script. And even mine and my husbands ACTUAL story of how we met and got married. Has anyone came across a seller who wrote a script for them? Did it turn out the way you had invisioned it or was it rubbish? Can you please help me?
Second idea was a T shirt, $24. I looked at his reviews and they were great!! All 5 stars and his pictures looked awesome too. However, I sent him a message asking him to send me a picture of what it would look like when he’s done just so I could see and his reply was “yes please i need more time, i m working with schedule” exactly what he said, however I feel as thought the commutation is sort of… lack there of perhaps and it worries me. And also, before this, I had sent him a different message with even more reference pictures of what I would like for it to look like and how I wanted it to be. I then asked about sizes, and not once did he mention sizes to me. But when I had asked him the question and when I sent him the reference pictures, all he said was—“thank you” and that was it…
Has anyone had any experiences like this? And can you help me and give me some tips with sellers? Do I trust this? Or what should I do? This is for my husband and I NEED this to be great… I’m trusting these people with my money and also just believing in their work, period.
But then i get the bright idea to look up scams on Fiverr out of nowhere and all I could find was scams… so now I’m really worried and would like some guidance with all of this.
My third idea was for $7. English word turns into Japanese calligraphy. Easy. Communication was okay and asked me if I preferred it vertically or horizontally. Which was nice. Has anyone had an experience with a seller that did this? How did that go? Was it what you had expected? Or no?
I really just need some clairvoyance on this and it would be nice to chat with someone who has experienced this before on Fiverr. This is my first time using this app, and I have already made 3 purchases. All because I’m desperate for my husbands birthday gift to turn out the way I had planned for it to. The app seemed reliable until today when I looked up scams and now I’m just worried about it all. Did I do the wrong thing with trusting in these people to help me create this for my significant other? Did I just waste $100 or over $100 altogether? Someone help me please.
