Handling orders
 
When a buyer orders a gig, the seller gets notified by Email.
 
Sellers are required to meet the delivery duration they specified when creating their gigs. Failing to do so will permit the buyer to cancel the order and will reduce the seller's rating.

Unanswered mutual cancellation requests will be automatically accepted after 48 hours, while reducing the non-responding user's rating.
 
A Seller may cancel an order at any given moment. However, canceling an order has a negative effect on the seller's rating.
