I am working on fiver since 2018 so after a lot of experience, there is 90% of seller face the same issue.

There is a lot of new buyer come on Fiverr marketplace and they have very less knowledge about Fiverr and there are few old buyers whose do same mistake they place the order directly even seller mentioned clearly that which services he/she provides after placing order buyer want to cancel the order so as a result buyer lose nothing but seller lose a lot!

So my suggestion is:
Fiver needs to remove the option to place the order directly every buyer’s first inbox to the buyer and discuss the project then place the order directly. I think you also agree with my point

Vote please

I am not an expert, but there is a way to prevent placing order for new buyers. You can set Requirements in your Gig. If you set required documents (like Excel, Pdf, Jpg, etc) regarding to your Gig, then buyers can not confirm order until they upload documents. Thank You.

The only way to prevent someone from placing an order is to have no active gigs. Fiverr is specifically set up as a retail services marketplace. You are supposed to have everything available on your gig, and in your packages, to allow instant ordering. Buyers are supposed to be able to click the green buyer button any time they want to work with you. They should not need to contact you for permission.

Yes, you right trust me there is a lot of buyers they place the order just reading the title of gig not read the description of gig 😦

What’s wrong ya people? Haven’t you experienced someone buying your gig for something you can’t do? And then you have to cancel? I’m surprised by the poll results.

Oh really you surprised? Like I am designer not a content creator. So i clearly mentioned in my gig that i am not content creator but people place the order and just send me single link and ask me create a content and also design it? Do you think is that issue with my knowledge

The problem is they buy your gigs without asking. Then you have to cancel. I guess content creators don’t have these problems.

Fiverr is never going to do that, because that would greatly reduce sales.

For many services, discussing the project in advance isn’t necessary, and buyers who’d be forced to message the sellers first could be easily put off by it and choose another platform.

Fiverr isn’t going to lose a huge amount of money just because the current system inconveniences some sellers.

Yes brother you are right but i think there is 80% platform does not allowed the buyer place order directly. And i think before ordering save both time buyer as well as seller.

They could just have it set up so the seller can choose for each gig whether it requires contact before ordering. Then buyers wouldn’t be forced to message on gigs where it isn’t necessary.

Because they’re bidding platforms. Fiverr brought something new, the ability to browse through gigs and place the orders directly, and that’s why it’s so popular.

And i think before ordering save both time buyer as well as seller.

In many cases, it would do the direct opposite of saving time.

It might help with your services, but with many others, it wouldn’t.

They could just have it set up so the seller can choose for each gig whether it requires contact before ordering.

Making it optional could be the good way to do it, yes. However, the OP insists that the entire site has to adjust to their needs, and that what he needs is what everyone else needs.

Don’t assume that this is an issue every seller experiences. I have created, defined, and established my gigs in such a way that I rarely ever have anyone place an order for services I don’t provide. My gig is set up in such a way that everything my potential buyers need is clearly established in my gig. No confusion… and few to no “didn’t read the instructions” issues. I also have higher prices, so people are a lot more cautious when ordering.

I’ll be honest, almost all of the sellers I see complaining about buyers placing orders without contacting them first, or allegedly not “reading the gig instructions”, have gigs at incredibly low prices. When all of your services are cheaply priced, people are more inclined to rush through because of the excitement of having found a deal, or not really caring as much because $5 of $10 isn’t a lot of money.

If you have a well-crafted gig, and you are appealing to a market that is forced to view their purchase as a valuable investment, you’re not going to get many people rushing through things, or slapping down a quick order without reading instructions.

Ya gotta understand your market, funnel the buyers through your gig in an informative way, and subtly direct their attention where you want them to place that attention. Far too many sellers – new and low-priced – don’t think of their gigs in this way. They don’t build a business gig designed to bring in revenue… they just put up a cheap gig and expect sales.

A good seller is never expecting sales from anyone who will buy from them, instead, they are encouraging customers who NEED the offered services. There’s a HUGE difference between these two perspectives. If you want to avoid the random buyers, you need to focus on the “THEY NEED”, not the “I EXPECT”.

Fiverr has completely designed and created a system in such a way that buyer doesn’t need to contact before order. I was watching a course on Fiverr and he was saying setup your gig in such a way that buyer completely understands what you are offering. That’s why Fiverr has enabled Pricing Package , Description, Video, Pdf file and most important FAQs, which many seller don’t consider. I completely agreed with @jonbaas . That’s how it works and it should work. They know their system better than us.

Hmm, I only have 2 orders of “I EXPECT”. All others are “THEY NEED”. That’s because people find me in Fiverr, I don’t think I am supposed to find them. If you are talking about Upwork, it is based entirely on “I EXPECT”, however, I don’t think Fiverr is based on it.

The whole idea of purchasing online is you buy something and the order starts immediately. Someone doesn’t have any idea of how online sales work.

I can’t understand how anyone can think any buyer wants to be blocked from ordering something until they are forced into a discussion with the seller first, who may or may not even be available to chat.

85% of my sales are impulse buys where someone sees my gig and places the order immediately.

Buyers are not here for our own convenience to be available waiting for us at our own schedule to get around to a discussion with them. The focus is all on the buyer and them being able to simply place the order, spend the money when the urge strikes.

I guarantee if you make them wait even a minute they will change their minds about even wanting what you are selling.

It’s egocentric of any seller to imagine a buyer being so eager for what you are selling they will want to wait on them before they are allowed to order.

The gig requirements section is where you state what you need from the buyer.

The questions and answers section of the gig description is where you state details of what you need from the buyer to complete the order.

When they order you can also send them a fillable PDF form with detailed questions they can fill in so you get a good idea of what they want. You can also make arrangements at that time to have a discussion with them, send questions to their inbox, or do other things needed so you can complete the order. Give your time line extra days also if you need detailed information.
