As a buyer, i need some services also. I have tried to submit a request to Buyer Request and i was disapointed. There were lots of template message. People even did not read what i wrote.

I do not understand why do not spend a bit more time and read carefully than write as buyers need.

@cagricilara that’s exactly what I was trying to say.

I usually filter out sellers by searching out for them when I need to buy something and always goes well,try that sometime. 🙂

The best moment is when I need for example a cover photo and they respond with

“Design outstanding modern logo within 12hrs Best Quality Logo on Fiverr / Best quality Logo I’ll Design an OUTSTANDING LOGO with my creativity blabalba”

The buyer request section should be upgraded in my opinion too.
1.90% of the buyer requests are too generic. “I need a logo” Without specifics, how would I offer something? It could be a 5 dollar job, but it could easily be 50. It’s a setup for disputes.
2. Yes, there sellers spamming it, just ignore them.
3. I feel like it’s a price competition, and most requests have 10+ responses. As a quality seller, why would I craft a personalized response, knowing there are at least 5 sellers who’d already offered something for 5 bucks. I have submitted so far 20 proposals, got zero orders. And sometimes I did offered cheap, less than the budget.

Totally agree with you. As a seller, I send around 10 offer in a day and get works daily from them.

However, I did not send any offer in last 30 days. I cant find any realistic offer. Either there is a lack of information or unrealistic low budget.

Another problem is sellers’ requests that there are lots of spammers.

Also, lack of information causes cancellation. However, sometimes it seems I can do the job but need more information to clear every step. I send an average offer and ask more information from buyer to discuss about project and delivery time. Buyer did not reply message and just accepted offer. Than want many extra works. Such issues, Fiverr protects buyers. Fiverr says if I send offer, I just accept the price and the information given is sufficient.

Maybe there should be a message button to contact buyer for more information or discuss about project.

I believe that Fiverr should attack those proposals from the sellers who place their advertising within the buyers’ area. That is garbage that accumulates in that area.

I think they should enable to block these accounts (maybe when 3 or more people report it)

  • Do you really want the buyer who accepts those $5 offers? I don’t. Those buyers are not for me 🙂
  • It doesn’t matter if there are 5 or 25 offers before you. Most of them are templates so it should be rather easy for your offer to stand out. I’ve had several clients who told me that my offer was by far the highest, but they accepted mine because my offer was actually personalized. There are plenty of sellers offering entire websites for $5. Why do you think buyers choose to pay $900 for mine and there are plenty of others selling at even higher prices 🙂

A good customer who knows what they want and what it’s worth will pick your offer as long as you can explain the value of your service.

If you’re not getting replies to your offers then either you’re bidding on the wrong requests or you should review how you present your service.

I think the bigger problem here is that there aren’t enough decent requests to even bid on. A lot of them expect the world for $5.

I agree with you.

Totally agree, we both say we don’t want to waste energy on poorly written customer request, who are likely to be problem clients for 5 bucks. Instead, go for large orders, with Quality offers.
