There is one thing that every great seller fears, and unfortunately for a good reason, since BUYERS FROM HELL can be a common occurrence on Fiverr, Ebay and many other sites designed with the buyer in mind and not the seller. Unfortunately on Fiverr, at the time of writing this article, there is no way to protect yourself. You cannot block a buyer from purchasing your gigs! Even Ebay had the common sense to add this feature, but Fiverr just sweeps this problem under the rug. Why would Fiverr skip this important feature? Most likely for profitability reasons, but even that doesn’t make sense when you think about it.
This is a short article about how to maintain a five star rating on Fiverr.com, as buyer and a seller.
Buyers. It is pretty simple to attain and maintain a 5-star rating as a buyer. After a transaction a seller can rate the buyer on “Overall experience” from 1 to 5 stars. Here is how to keep your sellers happy:
“If you use a seller often, Tip!”
- Read the gig page completely before ordering. The seller is not going to be happy if you are requesting something that is not described in their gig description, and was not previously discussed.
- Discuss the project before ordering. Especially if the seller requests this in the gig description.
- Do not try and get free extras from the seller! Many buyers are notorious for shaking down their sellers to get more from them. Eventually this will catch up to you after a couple negative ratings from sellers.
- If you use a seller often, Tip! Tipping stands for “To Insure Promptness”. If your seller is on time and has a tipping extra available, use it! This will almost guarantee a 5 star rating from your seller and maybe some extra effort next time you purchase.
