This buyer actually belonged to the super stupid buyer brigade. He reviewed immediately after ordering and them messaged me to ask for a special rate. After a lot of back and forth, I told him the lowest I could go was $70 for 5 articles and he could order directly from my crypto gig.
He said he was about to order BUT would need me to provide him with a list of article topics and outlines prior to starting work. That’s a deal breaker. I told him he would need to provide topics and outlines. Then while he went away to ponder my outrageous demands, I decided to see what he had said in his first review. - And found this:
Fine, it’s not a bad review. However, his article was top notch and I find it a bit cheeky how someone can mark you down for buy again or recommend and communication, despite having all their messages answered instantly and immediately asking for more work. In this case, I blocked him.
If he’s been on Fiverr for a while and if this was the first time he has ever not been embarrassed with the result of an order, I’m guessing this is because he is too cheap and has way too high expectations.
He then messaged me shortly after to ask me to send him an offer for the work discussed. I refused, saying that on reflection, it seemed that he might be expecting a lot more from my gig than what I offer, but that there are lots of other writers on Fiverr who I am sure would be happy to help.
All I regret now is leaving him a token 5-star review and not seeing his review sooner.
