Professionalism includes consistency and honesty, and there are many things that can turn buyers away.

As a rule of thumb, I have found that it’s always better to pass up on a gig that you feel may be outside of your scope rather than take on a project that puts you in over your head later on. Honesty and consistency are an integral part of this!

Thank you for the helpful tips! I have a question and I hope this is a good place to post it. Somewhere I read that I could limit the number of orders that I can receive at a time on a given gig. Could someone explain where to set that, if it’s possible?

This should help, for the first part of your post.

On the second part: Click the Gig’s tab, click on the gig you want to limit, turn on [LIMIT] in the menu that opens, and type the number. You’ll have to do that for each gig individually.

Also, note that this does not actually act as a hard barrier. People can still order the gig. It’s just a visual deterrent. If you’re dealing with too many orders, it’s a sign that it’s time to raise your prices.

If you want to offer extra quantity, make it a bonus and don’t forget to add in the extra time it will take.

How can I add it as a bonus?

And Thank you for such a great explanation.

Thank you for your question.

(Quick reminder first, there’s exceptions to every rule and not everything can apply to all categories or all gigs.)

Under the second step, “Pricing”, there’s a section called ‘Add Extra Services’ with many default options. You should also be able to add two custom Extras.

Your PCB board gig:

So, putting those quantities as custom Extras, you simplify the gig and make it less confusing for potential buyer to understand.

Excuse me, a very silly question.

I just signed but I can’t find the page where I can see buyer requests for my gigs. Can you help me?

I used the post a request function as a customer and I received a lot of messages, but on seller side I can’t find a list. Thank you!

Welcome to the Fiverr forums.

In a desktop browser, it’s found under the [More] option at the top of the page while in Seller mode. If you don’t see the option, try zooming out. If there are no requests currently available for your categories or level, you will not see any listed.

Please also see: Buyer Requests - Leadership Suggestions on Buyer Request Complaints (Few Requests, BR FAQ's, Times, Issues Etc.) (Note: many of the links in that thread are broken, but the articles can still be found in the Seller/Buyer Help Center https://www.fiverr.com/support/ by searching for the article title from the link.)

Not every gig needs three packages. If there’s no difference between your packages, you don’t need three. What counts as a difference? Quantity does NOT . Quality DOES . If you want to offer extra quantity, make it a bonus and don’t forget to add in the extra time it will take.

Question, I currently offer three packages but for the same thing. Would it be wise just to offer one? The only thing is lets say someone orders a 2x of a gig, the delivery date doesn’t change so I am kind of contemplating if I should stick with 3 packages or just do one?

Thank you for your question.

(Quick reminder first, there’s exceptions to every rule and not everything can apply to all categories or all gigs.)

I glanced at your gig, and as far as I can tell, it might be worth trying. The way you have it set up, a buyer is more likely to order the basic package twice than the standard package, because the 3 @ $20 * 2 = $40 which costs less than 6 @ $45. Same strange pricing with Premium.

Any potential buyer who sees this is going to ask “why does it cost more for the same amount?” and with good reason, and then either make an incorrect purchase or leave. (Please see (DES) point 3.)

As an alternative, please see the reply I made here, in response to the same question: Basics to Improve Your Gig. A helpful breakdown and guide

Thank you so much for this post. It was one of the best posts I've read in this forum. It is seriously helpful especially for a new seller like me. I've bookmarked this. Thanks again for a well-written and detailed post. 

P.S Sorry if my reply is spam-like and/or annoying as it is just another thank you reply.
