How not to loose orders, if employers chat me in a nighttime?

Hi! I live in Russia and I’m a newbie on Fiverr, so as you see every single order is very important for me 😁 and sometimes I’m not able to respond as quickly as I want to. Maybe I could advise me something, maybe there’s some feature on Fiverr that I don’t know to solve this problem? Thank you very much!

I use the Fiverr app. I leave the computer at 3 PM, and after that it’s family time. Most of my messages come in between 5 PM and 9 PM. I get an alert on the app, and then I can respond in a timely manner. If it’s not an urgent message, I can see that in the app and choose to respond in the morning.

Using Fiverr App would be a great option as it helped me as well.

As I’m sure you realise, it’s all about managing expectations.

If you haven’t done so already, then why not include a short paragraph in your gig description that says something like “I am based in Russia. Due to time differences, it might take me up to X hours to respond, but please be assured that I am a serious Fiverr seller and that I will respond within this timeframe. I’m looking forward to hopefully working with you”.

Yeah, maybe it’ll work, but I’m afraid this can alienate potential buyer. If I remember correctly Fiverr displays the local time of the seller, but it’s another question if employer will pay attention to this. I was wondering if there’s a feature, which can quick responce to my buyer without my participation. But anyway, thanks for the advice

Please remember that you’re a human. You need sleep. You certainly can’t deliver work to a high standard without appropriate rest.

If a potential buyer doesn’t take the time to read your profile or gig fully in order to establish there is a time difference, or worse still completely disregards the time difference and still expects you to respond immediately - then from my point of view they’re not worth working with.

They are more likely to be demanding and potentially abusive in their dealings with you. Sometimes you just have to accept that you have to put your health and welling first.
