Am I being irrational?
I'd like to share a recent exchange I had with a customer:
- Customer notes to us that he is struggling to achieve something with our product.
- We explain that this is currently a limitation, but immediately update & release a new version of the product to help the customer achieve their goal.
- Customer isn't happy, e-mails us for refund.
- [This is where I come in.] I ask the client whether the fix worked in an attempt to determine how I can help the customer.
- Customer says they didn't try it and won't try it, because they don't want to be a guinea pig. Insists on refund, threatens with chargeback.
- I explain that we released a fix for the problem and hence it's not about being a guinea pig; we're just doing our job & helping them out.
- Customer ignores last e-mail, rudely threatens to publicize this and again threatens to go the way of a chargeback.
- I issue refund and at least attempt to explain our actions in this regard & how we actually tried to help. Still awaiting response (if any is going to be forthcoming).
So am I being irrational for not understanding this interaction at all? Since when does fixed bugs warrant a refund and such rude behaviour?
