    I offer a backlinking service on fiverr, but sometimes dealing with customers can be a pain. Like They expect their backlinks to show up on ahrefs 2 min after i blasted their site.

    that's may be coz they are noobs? If I had to sell backlinks, I would have included the disclaimer that ahrefs would take some time to update the links or bla bla bla..

    You better explain all of this in your fiverr gig's description, in order to avoid annoying customers.

    Also somebody might try to get his money back if he does not understand that it might get 1-2 or even more for his links to show up in ahrefs. Just make it clear

    Don't bite the fingers that feed you ! Customers means business , business means money !! And money is necessary in life ! Customer trusts you are purchase your gig though they don't have much idea about what you will do. It's you duty to explain things to them. Why don't you include it all in your gig description ?? I hope those customers are still good enough that they have not posted any -ve reviews yet !

    Maybe your customers are not liking your services. However the can be newbie to the Internet Marketing. Just be polite with them because if you not then they can give you bad review moreover these customers are the key for you to earn money.

    When dealing with clients, whether they spend $5 or $5m, remember that people don't care what happens, as long as they are expecting it.

    So, just think about what you're leading them to expect, and modify it accordingly.

    I'm one of those sellers who does what a client wants. Few times people wanted me to post articles without links - I did it, they loved it.
    When some client doesn't like anything about my links (like the time they get indexed), I give a one sentence explanation and offer a refund if he still doesn't like it.
    I don't waste any more time on those kind of clients. Some of them are so freaked out about being scammed that you can spend hours on explaining and they still have issues. I prefer refunding a troublemaker and save the time for reasonable clients.

    I wasn't aware that Fiverr would even consider doing that.

    I've bought gigs on Fiverr on approximately 15 occasions; about 60% of the sellers turned out to be scammers and they got negative reviews in return. I outsource to a different sight now.

    Oh well, caveat emptor.

    OP, please. If they know what they do, they wouldn't buy backlinks on Fiverr. Period. (Unless they want to Neg-seo their competitor's sites, of course)

    I think it happens everywhere, but in link building its really an annoying behavior coz you don't have much control over it.
