    hi, I just started selling on fiverr and a person placed an order on dec 25 and I gave him what he wanted he seemed happy, then on dec 29 I looked and saw he canceled his order and i didnt get the money. When my order was deliveryed to him it was marked completed and had a clearance of about 12 or 13 days . I am very mad because i am a 16 year old really trying to make money online.
    please help me
    may god bless you heart

    When your order is marked completed can he still cancel it? I would get in touch with the fiverr people about this as well.
    And calling it a scam because one of your orders got cancelled really doesn't make sense.. many people are making a lot of money via fiverr.

    He most likely made a charge back with his bank / CC company as if order was marked as completed I cannot see how he possibly could of cancelled it.

    As user mentioned above, calling fiverr a scam before properly speaking to fiverr about it is not a smart idea. Also I'm presuming you have proof the gig was delivered? If so all the more chance you will get your money back.

    Definitely make contact with Fiverr, I don't think what was done to you is right.

    When funds are held in escrow (what fiverr does), when you complete the job, and the buyer approves it, you should get the money.

    Maybe the buyer did something funky like had the charge reversed off his credit card, and that is why you didn't get it.

    That's a chance you take with fiverr depending on your gig. I had a gig where I would send you high pr links to manually post to and after the guy got them he simply canceled the order and kept the links. I told fiverr they said thanks for the info we'll check it out and that was that. If you have a gig where you send somebody something there's really nothing in place to stop them from taking your product and keeping the money.

    If you still have the messages that the client was pleased, then it should be enough proof for Fiverr to return all the money to you.

    Unfortunately it's just the nature of dealing with Fiverr. People are scamming on there quite a bit as of lately. I still make a killing with Fiverr so I just suck it up and expect that it will happen. You can contract Fiverr support and sometimes they will help you, especially if you have a good rating.

    Never had that happen, try talking to their customer support. They are amazing. I requested a ticket then a staff member messaged me less than a minute latter and we settled the dispute.

    This has never happened to me. Sometimes you mark order as complete but buyer does nto reply and in that case fiverr marks them as complete after defined time.

    Talk to their support. They really help. Your buyer must have done chargeback in pp and so Fiverr canceled order.

    If he did a chargeback or a PayPal dispute then I think Fiverr will ban his ass, but if he asked the support to cancel his order then the money is never returned to his PayPal, instead he is credited Fiverr money.
