Hello,

I’ve just started selling on TF and one thing I’ve been asked for many times is “custom modification”

So I would like to ask other authors, How do you handle when buyer ask for “additional features” or “Can you do this…?” and what’s limitation etc.

Thanks :)

theres a few things you could do,

You can offer your hourly rate to do the customization You can debate weather you want the feature included in your item and add it for everyone You can refer them to someone that does custom work if you dont want to mess with it

time = money; time = custom modifications; custom modifications = money.

Good luck :)

I want also to ask, is this wrong to tell the buyer that i can’t make the customization that he want because i don’t have anytime, or what i should do, because it’s too hard to make any customization to buyers and also additional to number of buyers !, it’s in fact impossible.

So, i want a clear reply.

You can say it. Never think that you’re committed to help. If you don’t have time you don’t have time and everyone will be okay with that. But you could push your clients in the right direction. Krisie created a thread were buyers can ask for customization and choose an author so they can get in contact with them.
