The Thought That Buyers Don't Patronize New Sellers is a Myth

Recommended Posts

Exactly two days after I had set up my gigs, I got into an argument in the forum about how buyers don’t patronise new sellers. In that post, an older seller had made a general statement that suggested that buyers don’t patronise new sellers because new sellers are inexperienced and so on. Though I was new, I bluntly stood in solidarity with new sellers on that thread, and I also learned a lot from the arguments. However, I also uncounciously built that belief that it will be difficult to get a job here because I was a new seller. So, after I waited for a couple of days and I didn’t even get a message from any buyer let alone an order, I got slightly frustrated and stopped putting in all my time to it.

At that point, I started receiving enquiries but because I was not alsways there to respond to the messages on time, the buyers would always go away. It kept happening until my response time climbed to three hours - I heard that any response time below one hour isn’t ok - and the messages stopped coming in.

I am making this post to also add that, after making your gigs attractive as a new seller, you must always be online. This is because you don’t know when a buyer will come calling; that a new seller can’t easily get orders on Fiverr is only but a myth.

you must always be online

Or you can download fiverr app and get a notification every time you receive a message from buyer :woman_shrugging:

Of course they hire new sellers. They just don’t hire new sellers if they don’t want their gigs. You are correct that being online is important for new sellers. Not simply showing you are online but actually being there to immediately answer questions.

Yeaaah, @misscrystal, good to meet you again. You were on that thread that day. Thanks for your concern.
