Lol. Shey you dey wind me ni? I've been on fiver for over half a decade with over 1k orders. "Make another delivery" extends auto complete time automatically. There's no way the client can extend the completion time on his end without going through you by opening a dispute to extend the time. The CS that attended to you might be high or is a noob, or maybe it's you that misunderstood him/her.

Normally, it would affect it. Next time you want to make such additional deliveries, submit it as an attachment in the chat area of the order. That way, you don't alter the auto complete time.

Thanks for your swift response. How about the withdrawal. One withdraws raw dollar cash to exchange at BDC or Street rate right?
|Business / Re: Upwork Thread (Questions/Help/Advice) by Dandy1(m): 11:02pm On Jul 01|
I'm really interested in having you give me more tips on cashing out Payoneer funds via GTB's domiciliary account. Normally I shouldn't need this, but Payoneer disabled Payoneer to Payoneer transfer on my account. I have tried all I could to get them to restore it, but they won't.
I have been really shortchanged over the years using their direct bank deposits, when I should be selling the dollars at black market rates on Binance and paxful for maximum gain.
Can you please list the requirements for opening a dom. account with GTB and how to finally cash out/convert to Naira for maximum gain? If you don't mind, I can DM you for more conversational chatting. Thanks

Y'all doing all those group and shit on Upwork? I never really got a hang of the PITA platform. Seems no matter what I do, I can't really gain ground or get really established on there. It's way easier to get started on Fiverr than on Upwork because Fiverr algorithm kindda supports a new entrant for a period of 2 weeks to one month to help you get a foothold. Plus the UI is user friendlier.
As long as your gig description is good and you're good with the SEO keywords relevant to your niche, you're on your way to excelling on Fiverr.
But that Upwork's shitty*, no matter what I do, it ain't yielding. I was quick to get approved and get my first work on there. I even bought lots of connects when they first started selling and kept bidding, but no way. I guess the 2nd client which I got immediately after the 1st f'ckked up my streak by making an order and not submitting the file to work on. I messaged the mofo like cray, she didn't reply until the order expired. So I just lost interest in the site, since I was doing great on Fiverr already. Even had my hands filled.
I might try it again someday soon though.
|Business / Re: Exploitative Outrageous Duty Charges By Nigerian Customs by Dandy1(m): 5:45pm On Dec 05, 2021|
I reached out to the seller. He actually devalued the item even though I didn't request he should do it. He said he put in the invoice.
|Business / Re: Exploitative Outrageous Duty Charges By Nigerian Customs by Dandy1(m): 5:40pm On Dec 05, 2021|
No, I think what those guys do is go online to Aliexpress and search for the item to get the price. In my case I was unlucky because they miscalculated another superior version of what I bought. The names are almost the same with just difference of 2 letters. There are 2 versions, the costlier one was what I was charged for. When I calculated the 202k they estimated, it was exactly the price of the more expensive version. See pictures below.
|Business / Re: Exploitative Outrageous Duty Charges By Nigerian Customs by Dandy1(m): 5:20pm On Dec 05, 2021|
Thank you. I already submitted a letter of request for revaluation to them, but from my findings it seems that hardly works. I am awaiting their response while I look for money to pay, in case the levy is not reduced.
|Business / Re: Exploitative Outrageous Duty Charges By Nigerian Customs by Dandy1(m): 11:33am On Nov 30, 2021|
Anyone who has any idea on how to go about this or help out kindly do. Attached is a screenshot of the actual amount paid at checkout. Lalasticlala and other mods please help for more audience.
|Business / Re: Exploitative Outrageous Duty Charges By Nigerian Customs by Dandy1(m): 10:09pm On Nov 29, 2021|
Ha! O ga o. With people like you, this injustice will be encouraged. You think if Nigeria produces a usable equal to what I ordered, or even something close - I would have bothered myself ordering from abroad? So whenever we buy things we can't get locally, they should slit our throats for it right?

Ha! That's really crazy. Do you mean one has to pay about half the price value of what you ordered in order to get it. You are definitely wrong and are encouraging this unjust exploitation. Who does that? Pay half the prize for duty? It wouldn't even happen in North Korea. Even Kim won't be that heartless.

I couldn't find a suitable sub-forum for this topic, so I used the general. Kindly patiently read through, if there's anyone that can help - please kindly reach out.
I'm going to be apt and sincere here. So I ordered a musical studio equipment on the Aliexpress 11:11 sales day. The total sum I paid for the item at checkout was $280(114k naira). Free shipping was part of the deal, so it was mouth watering. Normally, I would have used the service of Nairaland trusted shipping agents like Justi4jesu, but she doesn't do Aliexpress the last time I checked.
Fast forward to today, I was called to come pick up my parcel at the local post office. The item was stated on the listing to be shipped through 'Aliexpress standard shipping', I don't know how it ended up in the care of EMS. I reached there, and some sort of invoice was brought out. The attending agent looked at the papers for a moment and told me I would be paying about 39,600 for the clearance. What!!!
I couldn't believe my ears, so I told her to please pass me the document for observation. I saw the estimated value of the item was put at #202,000 naira. How come? It stated on the paper that the custom duty was 10%,which is #20,000. Plus all other trumped up charges, it summed up to #39,600. Plus 1k5 for shipping from Lagos, over 40k. That's about $100, using the current official exchange rate.
I bought a $280 dollar item and I'm being charged $100 for collection? That's like 43% of the value. Even if I am stinkingly rich, which I am not; it's insane to pay such amount. It's like buying a 1milli worth car and paying 430k to clear it. I am an obedient citizen and all, but inflating the price of the item I bought just to cash out big through tariff screams corruption to me. I am very sure just a fraction of the amount will be remitted to government coffers.
Please if there's anybody who has an idea how to go about beating down this obviously outrageous charges, kindly help out. I can print out the issued invoice on the bought item as proof of price if there's a need. Thanks.
Lalasticlala and other mods, I will be glad if this can make front page for more awareness of this unjust situation. Thanks

I just want to drop it here that when the big black hose that connects the engine combustion chamber is not tightly in place, it can cause the vibration in idle issue. That was the case in my situation. I just tightened it properly and vibration disappeared. Thanks to someone who earlier dropped a hint on this thread. I hope this helps someone

Anyone in Akure, Ondo state that is a young smart mind and is very good with English listening skills?. i.e, If you can easily watch Hollywood movies without using subtitles, and you have a laptop computer.

LOL. You are short changing yourself. If you are as good as you said you are, then you have more chances of making more money with foreign clients. Nowadays, I catch my clients on freelance sites and take them out of there.

This is particularly good for music production and sound engineering. Hence the display on the fourth picture below which has Ableton Live, Hu-he Diva and other plugins on.
You can for instance open FL studio on one tab, open the mixer on another, open the Playlist on one, the step sequencer on one and plugins(effects and instruments) on the rest. No need to dey open and close windows every time, you have have every interface right in front of you. Faster workflow.
Music production and sound engineering is sweet. I play with fantastic toys everyday.

You are just being stupid. That you are so unlucky to be a talentless aboki doesn't mean everyone should be like you. I don't blame you though, I bet you don't even know who wizkid is because you listen to only your aboki music.
I know of a record label that paid Oxlade 1m or even more just for him to feature on their artistes song. Do you know how much of that he makes per year from such features alone? Not to talk of shows. Yet, he left his life of luxury to risk his life in the face of bullets and all you can talk is this rubbish you typed.
Like everyone had been saying, go and borrow sense. Not everyone is as miserable as you. Olodo

You can now receive funds into your debit card balance once again. Payoneer just lifted all limitations.
|Business / Re: EXCLUSIVE : How To Make Level 2 Seller On Fiverr In A Month As A Nigerian Seller by Dandy1(m): 3:56pm On Jun 30, 2020|
Yippee!!! Payoneer card service is back online folks �
I just paid for my domain name yearly subscription with it. But it seems you can only spend what is on it, and can't move new funds onto the card.
The bank transfer is obviously available though, but Zenith Bank is a pain to receive bank deposits with. They make me write a stupid currency conversion letter every time I withdraw to the account and submit the hard copy in the banking hall. Bullcrap
