Fiverr is way beyond being the absolute worst. So I do a CRM integration for a client for a mere $200 and successfully delivered the work. The client fails to review the work despite regular communication (literally intervals of minutes with total disregard for timezones) and 14 days elapse and the gig is marked successfully completed. A day later Fiverr( through their stupid sense of wisdom) decide to cancel the order and I am flagged and warned for apparently misusing the deliver button. So I wondered to myself, "50+ orders later, would I be unable to know how to use a stupid button?"
So I chose not to make any follow ups as I simply expected canned messages from their "world-class" customer service team.
So funds lost and I decided to keep my head low and work on the next project as usual but to my surprise, same script just a different actor, Fiverr decides to cancel the next order after 3 months of working and back and forth as the client was "too busy to review".
I decided enough is enough and decided to contact their stupid customer service and to my surprise, I end up recovering 50% of the payment after their review.
Then the rude awakening arrived like a slap on my face. "50% of your payment has been successfully returned to you however the amount has been deducted due to cancelled order #FO******."
So Fiverr decided to cancel and order, put my account under debt( which you cannot see from your dashboard), send me a warning, cancel another order and recover their debt.
Now I'm left wondering, have I been dealing with a loanshark or something?
At the end of the day the day, 2 buyers got free work and I ended up with 5 wasted months and a supposed debt.
AVOID FIVERR AT ALL COSTS FOR YOUR OWN SANITY. FIVERR WILL ALWAYS STEAL FROM YOU EVENTUALLY AND THERE AIN'T $#*! YOU CAN DO ABOUT IT!
