Should Sellers be able to Create Coupons from their SEOClerks Balance- Offering Partial Refunds to Buyers- and Incentives to Affiliates??
PLEASE VOTE IN THE POLL BELOW!!
I can’t remember how many times a Buyer would Order something – and wished I could have offered them a Partial Refund.
For example, maybe they purchased one of my “extras” from my Service and I wasn’t able to provide the “extra” at the time or maybe the customer mistook it for something other than what it was.
Having to ask a Buyer to agree to Mutually Cancel the Order in hopes that they will Re-Order minus the “extra”, is like taking a fish off the hook, releasing it into the abyss, & hoping for it to swim back to you.
Or perhaps there was a situation where the Customer was satisfied for the most part, but there was one little thing that couldn’t be fixed.
Let’s say a Customer buys 20k Youtube Views for $10, and for some reason, the Seller was only able to deliver 19k Views. Why can’t the Seller partially refund them $2??
I usually just give them “Store credit” for Future orders- but it’s a Verbal Credit and it can be challenging keeping track of what I owe who. (sure, I could give them a Coupon code for that gig, but what if they want one of my other gigs?).
This is yet ANOTHER good reason to implement “Seller Generated Site-Wide Coupon Codes” (a coupon code for any dollar amount that the seller can create using their own funds – but is good for ANYTHING in the Clerks Marketplace).
This is something I have mentioned many times in the past- and hopefully will happen soon.
Sellers could even host their OWN “FreeMoney” Promo similar to the one SEOClerks had?
(which seems to be temporarily disabled)
Have you ever bought a Service that could have justified a Partial Refund?
Do you think Sellers should be able to offer Buyers Partial Refunds?
Should Sellers be able to “Self-Fund” Coupons to Convert Affiliates??

Protecting the Buyers is great and all. So I think this is a step in the right direction to protect Sellers. But I think more can be done, especially for Reputable Sellers with that have been proven to be honest. Sure, we need to make the buyers feel comfortable with their purchases. But Buyers come and go. Reputable Sellers don’t come around very often, and I think it’s important for SEOClerks to do what it takes to keep those Sellers from finding another home. So why can’t a Level X Seller with over 500 Positive Feedbacks 99% Positive (for example), be given a Guarantee that they’ll get Paid? Many times have I started a job (which costs money, time & resources btw), only to have it Cancelled half way through, or have the Buyer Revoke the Guarantee. Now, I understand the need for SEOClerks to cover their asses when a fraudulent buyer reverses payment- so I’m not suggesting they take 20% of our losses only because they take 20% of our Gains. But perhaps maybe us Reputable Sellers can require a Non-refundable Deposit (a percentage of the Full Cost) prior to the acceptance of Orders priced above a particular price threshold. These “Deposits” would have to be Paid AND “Cleared” by Paypal before the Seller can begin the Order. If that sounds too unreasonable (or time consuming), than how about the ability for Sellers to set Buyer Requirements in order for them to place orders on their Gigs. For example, an Individual Setting for each Seller such as:
- Do not Accept Orders from Buyers with a Feedback Score of ___ or Less
- D0 not Accept Orders from Buyers who have been Members of SEOClerks for less than ___ Weeks/Months…
- D0 not Accept Orders from Buyers in these Countries:
- D0 not Accept Orders from Buyers with the following Usernames: (the good ol’e Buyer Blacklist we’ve been waiting for)
- ONLY Accept Orders from Buyers who Speak __________ (language barriers have lead to a majority of my disputes)
Perhaps allowing these types of “Preventative” Features to be set by Sellers, would relieve the HelpDesk from the amount of Tickets it Receives, AND give Less-Reputable Sellers Incentives to build their Reputations!! Just a thought (or two) Please Vote Below: -Jordan
