How to schedule gigs beyond 30 day delivery time?

My gig is picking up and I often need to stack orders in my que, but can’t because of Fiverr’s 30 day delivery time. For example: I’m booked for the entire month of July, and just got another request. My first available date to start this project is August 3, and it would require a 14 day delivery time, meaning my deadline to delivery it would be August 17. But because today is July 6, if I sent the buyer an order today with the max 30 day delivery time selected, the deadline for the project would be August 6, three days after it begins. I don’t want to use the Extend the delivery time option because I don’t want my 100% on-time delivery stats to decline. Is there a way around this? How do you guys schedule orders months in advance?

Thanks.

The only way to schedule gigs beyond the 30 day delivery time on Fiverr is to use milestones, and then the price of the gig must be a minimum of $100.

Ugh. That doesn’t make sense. They should at least give the option of longer delivery times the higher you go up in levels. My gig isn’t applicable for milestones.

Tell the buyer that you will send them a custom offer at a later date? At the beginning of August?

Once the 30 days is on the verge of expiring you can request a delivery extension. Unfortunately, there isn’t a way input the delivery more than (30) days.

Yes but that affects on-time delivery stats doesn’t it? And I don’t want to make requesting an extension a habit.

That’s what I have been doing. For this project, I can send it on July 17 and use the 30 day delivery time of August 17. Just hoping for a better option. Don’t want to lose the sale while we wait.

Extending delivery time doesn’t affect your on-time-delivery stats. Only late deliveries does. Feel free to use the perks. Just make sure the buyer agrees with the deadline extension.

Hmm…that’s good then if it doesn’t affect the stats, but I still don’t want to make this a habit. I’m getting inquiries daily at this point. Adding a 60 day option for Level 2 Sellers and up would remedy this. I’m sure I’m not the only seller having this issue.
