I don’t have this feature either, and all my gigs are over 4.8 stars, level 2… etc… And even if I had it, I wouldn’t use it.

I believe this feature can be abused quite a lot. Competitors can easily click on your gig and make you pay for basically nothing. Also, it mostly caters to the more expensive gigs I believe, I see no benefit in promoting a $5 gig, I might spend close to that on ads to get a sale, so basically I will work for free…

This month, January 2022, I spent $3.85 and made $176. From one gig. I'm not sure if my competitors are abusing this feature, I work full-time (outside of Fiverr), and rarely have time to search for my competitors and see what they're doing. 

I did search my keywords, and noticed that two on my gigs are on the first row, and one is on the third row. If that means spending up to $3 per click (I chose "no cap" on promoted gigs), that might be worth it if I get orders. 

My daily budget is $10. I I ever spend $10 and get no orders, I might consider raising prices or lowering the cap to something I can afford. 

I hope you give this feature a chance, I see it as investing in your business.

I'm a level one seller near level two and just got a notification. Should I go for it? The gig of mine that's qualified is already on the first page, but in last rows though. 

if you are qualified and got the notification then you can use that feature

but after some day they says that you are not eligible

Yes, exactly... This is so disapponted for us. Even when somedone canceled your order you will loos your badge within 3 business days and then if you will be able to full fill the all requiremenst for it. You will have to wait for it the next evulaiton. 


As if they take it from us within 3 days I think they also should provide us it within 3 days too..

this system has potential, i am testing it now... but there are many questions, things which should be solved... for example -stats with info about default/free traffic and paid promoted ads.... and info where are such promoted gigs... etc... so then it will be clear if promoted gigs give anything (has positive ROI) or no...

5-6 months ago the option got disabled and "Not promotable (Unqualified)" was written on it. I contacted the support and ask them the reason. They enabled it and said it was an issue on the platform.

Today the same thing happens and I reach out to customer support. Now this time they told me that there are certain parameters in the system on which this option is given to the sellers and they can't disclose it to the user. They said if the user get low rating or cancellation then this will effect this option.

Now there's been good sales and no cancellation or late deliveries. I don't understand why this options got disabled when I'm performing at my best and all my customers are happy. I didn't even change my gig settings.

I only see that they remove option for person who are taking over the category and all the clients are going towards them.
