I completely understand what you are saying.

Just a reminder to step back and look at the whole picture:

This system is not in place to punish you, or restrain you, or hold you back and stop serving you with clients.

It’s you and then there are literally thousands of sellers doing the exact same thing you are doing. (in terms of niche and end product, not level of service necessarily).

So the system, which exists solely to make Fiverr money, needs to know when it is efficient to serve your gig, or when it’s efficient to serve someone else’s.

My post tried to distinguish between the two main metrics that drive this decision:

speed and relevancy.

So when you are handling 5 orders, you are definitely able to tell if you are at capacity, or if you can pencil more orders in if you got them.

But Fiverr doesn’t know that, so it relies on perhaps poor indicators, like when did you deliver, how long it takes you to get back to buyers, etc.

Yes, if an order is a 24-hour one, then this calculation changes. Suddenly the last 12 hours account for 50% of the time you had to work on the order.

My gigs have 15 day deliveries (for good reason), so in my case delivering after the “12 hour” notification is “down to the wire”.

Hope that clarifies things.

Regarding what I quoted… due to the nature of my work and the fact that unlike most writers here I actually don’t outsource, I deliver only within the “12 hours left” window. I don’t have any trouble ranking because of that. I noticed reviews, cancellations and late orders have a huge impact. At least in my case.

@donnovan86 thank you for sharing.

That actually does not disprove the existence of that marker.

Like I said my observations may be wrong. I may be wrong about how important that is, or I may have stumbled upon only a fraction of the equation.

If you regularly deliver within the “last 12 hours”, and you are doing just fine, then that means that this metric’s weight is not as important, or that other things are also factored in, like the average duration of your orders, how many orders you have at one time, how many out of those are under revision, and so on.

It’s definitely a lot more complicated than my initial post may have implied.

I just wanted to hint at the existence of those metrics, I have no way of knowing the exact formula or how they tie in with everything else.

The ideas you shared in this thread did u try in your gig? and get orders ?

I follow my own advice and I do get orders. But this post wasn’t made to be used as a “guide” to “get orders”.

It’s you and then there are literally thousands of sellers doing the exact same thing you are doing. (in terms of niche and end product, not level of service necessarily).

So the system, which exists solely to make Fiverr money, needs to know when it is efficient to serve your gig, or when it’s efficient to serve someone else’s.

I get it and, just in case it wasn’t clear in my post, I thank you for opening my eyes.

With hundreds of thousands of sellers in some niches, Fiverr clearly needs a way to differentiate between sellers.

But the system needs to be transparent, and that’s why I’m troubled by this! Maybe it was my interpretation that the ‘12 hour reminder’ was just that - a reminder.

Anyway! As I said, great post and it’s given me food for thought.

I could be 100% wrong about this.

It’s based on my personal observations and I could be mistaken about most of it.

This could very well be a simple reminder, just as well as it could be a reminder that’s also getting measured.

But have you noticed that we got a number of notifications we didn’t use to get in the past 2 years?

-the buyer is waiting on an update

-you have 12 hours to deliver

-the buyer is new to fiverr

-this is a VID buyer

-this is a business buyer

-check the requirements

-this is a Fiverr’s choice order

Maybe this is Fiverr being as transparent as they can be with us:

“You need to provide a great service, here’s what we need for you to do.”

Yes, I have noticed. Your original post makes perfect sense. Thank you.

This thread is a perfect example of why the Fiverr forum can be so useful.

-check the requirements

Now that you brought that up, I have to wonder if that goes against you too? I get that message constantly and it irks me. I do not open up an order until I am ready to work on it OR if I feel there may be something missing. For some reason, I always know to look at those orders that will invariably be missing a key component I need to get the job done. I had one just last night, and sure enough, had to write to them asking for it.

So, I wonder, with this “check the requirements”, if you don’t OPEN the order and check to see if everything is there within 24 hours or whatever - if that also makes you look like you could care less about customer service?

Also, with the messages of

-the buyer is new to fiverr

There is always that “reach out and make their experience good” (or whatever it says). I wonder if I am supposed to be sending them a little greeting and thanking them for their order (before working on it!) and that I will be getting to their reading soon?

Lots to chew on. I don’t do either of the above - meaning, I do not send messages to new buyers welcoming them, I don’t check the requirements until I am ready to do their work OR unless I feel something may be missing.

Interesting.

Yes you are actually supposed to do both of the above if you are interested in providing your buyer with a pleasant journey.

This was covered extensively in the webinar I hosted and Fiverr staff was 100% in agreement with the claim that everything I shared on that webinar is directly tied to your profile’s performance.

Fiverr wants sellers to provide a better service.

You are of course free to ignore that.

Great post Frank, very insightful.

I think sellers often get blindsided by the hidden metrics and also not take into account the different types of sellers on the platform that effects the “rankings”.

There are small fish, big fish and then there are the whales. I see many people complaining about gig ranking who might not work on the weekends, I often see people talking about gig de-ranking because they took a extended break from working, or sellers that take time to get back to buyers (10+ hours or even days).

Disclaimer breaks are essential for health / wellbeing and I am not saying taking breaks / having a good work life balance is a bad thing however there will be sellers (mostly the whales) who do not function like this. Often they have the recourses in place to be as effective as possible and run their gigs efficiently like a business.

It can be a tough marketplace and sometimes it might not just be because you have “dropped the ball” but rather than sellers around you are just out performing you.

Just my two cents 🙂

Hi there Frank.

Thank you SO much for sharing this.

My name is Kevin Storm. In the last months I had been stupendously busy drawing 16+ hours a day with my 2 gigs “I’ll draw anything” and “I’ll create NFT Cryproart”.

The app and site have been extremely, worryinly buggy for me with messages remaining unread (an issue dating back as far as 2016 as i can tell in forums), people not finding their deliveries (MANY autocompleted deliveries, even after I send many messages to reach customers) and much more. I can be having several conversations with people and they are all happy to go ahead and order and BOOM, all conversations stop simultaneously and customers never respond anymore.

In february I used the “promote your gig” feature. Many things happened;

-Both my gigs (over 300 5 star orders and rave reviews) dropped literally to the last spot on the last page.

  • I suddenly did not appear at all and got zero customers, gig unpromotable. I found out this was because I used the words “many people leave me with 5 star review” in my FAQ section and without notification, Fiverr had completely blacklisted and removed my gig. I didnt know that was not allowed.

    I fixed the issue, but I never got back to where I was.

Oh and then I suddenly got an email with a rejection for Fiverr Pro that I never applied for.

No answer on that either. Bugs.

Fiverr is my only source of income, I am now jobless, except for the odd returning customer. I can’t sleep over this and I’ve literally been emailing customer support and twitter DAILY for over a month.

I sent close to 15 videos of the many issues and every day I get a “this has been forwarded to the relevant team” message. Until I asked if i could open a new account. I immediately got a warning that should I try that, I’d get them both banned.

We did a test here at home. My girlfriend ordered a drawing and we went through everything. As she accepted the delivery, her app crashed, and remained unusable on a locked screen for over an hour (didnt check if it works now). Closing the app, or phone didn’t bring the app back.

This worries me so much as perhaps people now can’t review the gig at all, or maybe just filled out 1 five star, app crashes and the other two remain at zero? I have no idea what is going on but I am crying here. I work harder than anyone out there and now am struggling to get even a single customer.

Another thing (sorry, last one) is that for my NFT gig, I was one of the first. The hype surrounding it is immesne and I was on top of the game, making great money. Someone ordered 4 drawings from me, and then started using MY drawings to list 4 gigs of his/her own that are now ranked way above me.

Perhaps they even left me with zero stars in the private “tell us in private what you thought of…” review people always get, who knows.

I would greatly greatly appreciate any help to get back to a basic income. If you can perhaps help me reach a human being on the customer support side or have a look at my keywords and metrics, I’d be extremely grateful. I’ll draw anything you want as a thank you 🙂 (This goes for anyone out there with the golden tip!) If you have a drawing gig and can’t finish your orders as you’re too busy, send them my way.

Fiverr was my lifeline, I’m very stressed about all this and can only hope they don’t see me as “that annoying seller who keeps complaining every day”.

Thank you for the explanation, I felt a slight relief and have a little hope now.

Kevin

I do not mean to sound harsh because it sounds like you are very stressed over what has been happening in your Fiverr life. However, the actions you have taken, as stated above, may have made things worse for you and not better. I have read on the Forum that CS gets annoyed with people who write to them daily about issues, and soon, it may get marked as spam and is not dealt with at all. 😕

We did a test here at home. My girlfriend ordered a drawing and we went through everything. As she accepted the delivery, her app crashed, and remained unusable on a locked screen for over an hour (didnt check if it works now). Closing the app, or phone didn’t bring the app back.

This was really not good! 😱

More than likely, if you and your girlfriend were using the same wifi/IP, Fiverr thought you were ordering from yourself, which is against TOS, and they blocked the order. Alternatively, if you each have an account, Fiverr may have thought you had two accounts, and that is, again, against TOS, and your girlfriend’s order was blocked.

Fiverr was my lifeline, I’m very stressed about all this and can only hope they don’t see me as “that annoying seller who keeps complaining every day”.

I am afraid that this is exactly what has happened, and may be the root of some of your issues. :thinking:

I used the words “many people leave me with 5 star review”

Mentioning anything about reviews in your gigs, your profile, or in communication with buyers is seen as review manipulation by Fiverr. If you had spent much time at all on the Fiverr Forum, you would have been aware of that as it seems as if the topic is brought up daily. :roll_eyes:

I would greatly greatly appreciate any help to get back to a basic income. If you can perhaps help me reach a human being on the customer support side or have a look at my keywords and metrics, I’d be extremely grateful.

You can create a post in the Improve My Gigs category, and someone may help you, but it is not appropriate to ask in this thread as it is Off Topic according to the Forum rules. 😉

Good luck 🍀 getting back to where you were. I think holding off on contacting CS, for now, may be your best course of action for now. If nothing improves, once things have quieted down and CS has had time not to see you as that annoying seller, you could submit one ticket with the most pressing issue, and once it is solved, submit another.

Though I thought it was only if you mention reviews to the buyer (eg. in inbox/order page)/ pressure them into leaving a particular review or changing one, or putting badges in gig images. I agree putting it in the profile or gigs might influence people but there are multiple TRS who mention their 5 star reviews in their profile and at least one Fiverr Pro, and I assume Fiverr would have checked those.

I have seen that. However, those sellers say something like, “I have 1000 5-star reviews.” This is different from saying ⬇️

“many people leave me with 5 star review”

To me, the first example is stating a fact, and the last is hinting that since many people have left a 5-star review, perhaps you should too. 😉

I respect your comments. Fiverr replied and basically says nothing is wrong with my gig. Im in the same boat as all the others who dropped to the last page and now, as of today officially give up. I will take whatever the platform offers me. I have raised thousands for them and now I’m last of the last. It really hurts. As it does for all the others who do this for a living. It;s fun to give everyone a gig every once in a while, it’s destructive if you were depending on it with your life. I’m too sad to think clearly.

I appreciate the response.

I agree

I deliver in 2 days, or with some extras, in 1 day. Obviously the 12-hour thing is 50% or 25% of the entire deadline.

Now this scares me, since even these tiny things matter. I assumed they do… But seeing them on black and white. You know… it makes them real 🙂

My take is that delivering actually late is a very big pain point but delivering past the 12-hour notification not much. I think the 12-hour notification’s first and foremost goal is to keep sellers from delivering actually late. They probably came up with it because many sellers do deliver late, not to torment sellers who always deliver before the deadline with the thought “Oh no, will my gig be dead now because I delivered at 14:07, and not at 13:55?! Should I just cut some corners next time to deliver before the dreaded 12-hours note?”

Generally, of course, Fiverr wouldn’t want everyone to deliver in the last possible minute all the time, but if happy buyers are the highest goal, Fiverr also shouldn’t like it if sellers got too scared by that 12-hours “pre-deadline” to even offer 24-hour gigs anymore.

My take is to plan and try to deliver with buffer as well and often as possible, but to not stress too much about crossing that 12-hour deadline sometimes, or even often if you do deliver a lot of 24-hour orders.

There are so many factors interlacing that it’s hard to single them out. Deliver before that 12 hour message, if you can, sure. On the other hand, if fear of crossing that 12-hour line keeps you from offering a 24-hour gig that really would get you orders and rake in fees, or if your business thrives with regular 10- or 5-hour hyper urgent express orders with 3x the revenue for the same amount of time, and the associated fees for Fiverr …

That notification is annoying, though, so, if you’re easily annoyed by annoying notifications, and I know I am, plan accordingly, don’t take hyper urgent express orders (unless the hyper person pays enough to cover your pain of receiving that notification), and deliver before that message pounces you.


Many if not all of those notifications, I think, are mostly for sellers who don’t deliver a good customer experience anyway respectively who can’t discern and act accordingly on their own.

For example, the requirement checking. You never have any issues with your gigs because you check your requirements late, your buyers are always happy? Well, great. You often have to ask for time extension because you check your requirements late? Well, you know what you should do, we know that buyers aren’t happy about time extensions, or, oh horror, late deliveries, and we remind you, to help you with this.

Or the “buyer is waiting on an update” - unless, in some cases, they don’t, might even be unhappier if you do reply to their “Great. Thanks!”, since they get a notification too and have to check if their seller maybe has some important question, only to see “Thank you for thanking me!” 😉

The code is more what you’d call “guidelines” than actual rules. Welcome aboard the Green Pearl, Miss Turner, Mister Around, and all you other dears!

I might be completely wrong.

You shouldn’t treat any of my research as a set of rules.

It’s a hypothesis that attempts to shed light to possible performance indicators.

Feel free to question everything and cross check with your personal experience.

Definitely, and I don’t, I just felt like adding another opinion about the 12-hour thing specifically, since some people seem to see it as scary now, and unfortunately, someone reminded me of pirates today, and I always wanted to use that rules/guidelines quote, since IMO, it seems to often apply, whether in live, on Fiverr, or the forum … and … because I’m not above the Green Pearl pun, unfortunately 🙂

That is always the best outcome possible from sharing knowledge on the forum.

I appreciate everyone who participates in these types of conversation.

@donnovan86 seems like that will most likely not stop, as the people who make those posts will never read anything else.

They are only looking to play the victim, or seek for confirming their bias, or are looking for shortcuts.

Meanwhile the marketplace will most likely move past them as they stand there, stuck in “ranking” limbo.

First of all happy birthday man (maybe I’m late sorry 😊)

This is the most interesting article someone post in a long time. Thank you for taking the time to share your experience. and I was wondering what do you think about the conversion rate? I read some articles about conversion rate but I was never able to find a method to calculate it. I think maybe conversion rate important factor to consider.

I think that the changes Fiverr is implementing may appear intimidating.

In my book, this is the first set of changes Fiverr appears to be making that will benefit the marketplace in the long run.

As a seller (and a shareholder) I can get behind that.

After reading your comments Vickie and some others as well, I think that my post may appear as if I am trying to alert people of something bad that’s happening.

I may have oversimplified things and the algorithm was definitely there before this update.

My two cents for anyone who wants it:

Fiverr wants for its sellers to stop thinking of just the end product and shift their focus to providing their buyers with a pleasant experience.

Chances are that sellers who still think it’s redundant to greet their buyer with a hello or check the filled out requirements to confirm they have what the need early on in the process, may start having a slightly harder time.

Sellers who already tried to provide their buyers with a great journey and went the extra mile to create delight, may start seeing more business.

Sellers who are intuitive enough and are willing to listen to whatever Fiverr is telling them, will probably adapt and figure out a way to move forward.

I do not feel that your post does that at all.

However, now that I have read your comment, I see that I have gotten the reactions to this post ⬇️

Please see my answer to you in the "Welcome to the New Fiverr 3.0 thread. slightly_smiling_face

I apologize. And I have deleted my comments that were made while I was thinking of the post above.

As a seller (and a shareholder)

Would you say it’s a good idea to become a shareholder? I saw their shares skyrocketed last year. I assume you were a shareholder beforehand, or you got into this in 2020/2021? I was thinking about this as an avenue to invest, but I am not really good with stocks myself.

I bought a lot of stock when it was $20.

I had been planning to ever since the rumors of them going public started years ago and I had been saving up money to buy on day one, which I did.

Stock went up more than 10x ever since.

My projection is it will grow even more in the next 3 years.

It’s a long position for me.

It’s not too late to buy in if you believe in the platform. But it is a long play.

I agree, the platform will grow, and the changes they are making clearly show there’s a great future for it.

I agree 100%.
