Looking For Advice

I commissioned someone to do a small pixel of my character, but the artist suddenly became unresponsive without warning.
I have sent 3-4 messages asking for updates on the platform where I commissioned them, all of them were never replied to.
I also sent a reminder email which was never replied to either. I will send another email soon.

My question being, if it comes to it, is it even worth it to file a charge back if the amount is just 5USD? Or should I just ignore it and eat the loss?
I'm not sure what to do.
