So these guys were highly touted by the large media companies, I signed up as a provider and started doing the little $5 jobs ($3.90) after they take their cut. Over 400 jobs later they decide to block me and block the 8 customers I have booked to do work for with no means of contacting them.
Meanwhile they have put a hold on over $250 in jobs I have done(approx 65) and refuse to pay me even though I have completed the jobs and have 100% feedback from the customers I did the jobs for.
The customers I have booked and not completed the jobs for have no way of knowing I was blocked as fiverr still allows them to send me messages that I can't respond to.
They also have the customers money.
I joined the site to do some jobs, learn more about internet marketing and make some business contacts, which I did and am very happy with , except for fiverr cutting me off , even when I did a testimonial video about their site.
Providers stay away, customers really all you have to lose is $5, I have used a few providers and it was well worth $5.
Other site like (((competitor's name redacted))) and (((redacted))) pay the providers right away so there is no danger of doing the work and not getting paid.
Live and learn... I did!sorry, allowing you to give a competitors name would instigate others to just file against their competition, to only come back later to suggest their company, ..plus, if you post a competitors name more than likely they will show up on search engines as a Rip-off! - - your comments on this policy are welcome.
