Great way to avoid bad sellers.

Recommended Posts

1. Check their reviews

2. Check the forum and see if they intentionally spread false or misleading information such as the "stay online always" folly. This has been debunked literally hundreds of times here. So if sellers are still saying these type of things they are either, not paying attention and do not posess the basic knowledge to properly function on Fiverr. Or, since no one can go without sleep, more than likely, discussing how to "appear" online always, essentially misrepresenting themselves to get orders.  That is plainly dishonest, and should warn you based on the simple dishonesty of it.

That was a general set of tips, of course buyers are always free to try new sellers. When you buy a product, do you not look at previous feedback from past buyers or even listen to feedback from friends and family? You tend to buy when you know it works.

The question was how to avoid bad sellers. So my answer is valid. Now if the question were to become "How to help new sellers get reviews", you may want to start that thread. But the best way is to buy from experienced sellers with good reviews.

this is mean reason why we are say to new seller active maximum time on fiverr nothing more !

You are still wrong. Your example does not prove your point.  Using your "logic", you could also make the point that you have over 100 sales because your gig description has both vowels and consonants in it.  Here's a level 1 seller who is offline and has many more sales than you, and there are hundreds more.

That explains why some sellers I see are marked as online, then when I send a message I get the 'they're offline, so it may be awhile' pop up!

 

I think it is a bug right now and everyone is appearing online! 😅 Not sure if it has been fixed. 

But yes, but does not need to be online all the time.

For new seller what should they do?? Like new seller need reviews and they can't raise their price..

Of course you can raise your prices. What you really mean is, you don't feel like you can validate raising your prices to potential customers, and clearly showcasing the value of your service(s) at a higher price point.

If this is the case, you need to address why you feel like you're unable to charge more for what you offer, and it's not because you're a new seller.

Just because you're new doesn't mean you should be cheap. The majority of serious buyers that you will want to build long lasting business relationships with don't want to buy $5-$10 gigs at the lowest price points of your niche. Why? Because as with all things in the world, they believe they get what they pay for. How much you pay for something nearly always reflects on the quality of the product or service.

Being too cheap can actually have the opposite effect and completely put buyers off wanting to proceed with an order.
Imagine I offer to sell you a car for $10K, but you know for a fact I should be charging around $25K, the first thing you're going to be asking yourself and the person selling it is what is wrong with it to be so cheap.
The exact same principal applies as a seller on Fiverr. Even if your portfolio is excellent, you communicate well, the service you offer is fantastic, and you have all the basics right to present yourself and your gigs properly, buyers will question why someone so good, is so cheap, and believe that there must be something wrong for you not to not charge what you're worth.

Value yourself, your time, and your experience, and be confident in showcasing you're worth exactly how much you say you're worth.

I mean, those who are new sellers, they prefer review, for which they agree with the buyers for less money only for review.

That sounds like review manipulation. Like bribing your buyer to give you a good review if you charge them less than your usual price. And review manipulation of any kind is strictly forbidden.

If that's not what you meant, and if you actually meant that you keep your prices ridiculously low hoping to attract buyers who'd give you great reviews, it's risky. Those who are looking for the cheapest of the cheap can be awful to work with.

The 'raise your price' point is interesting. Although I'm a new seller on fiverr (not in the business though, I'm a top-rated freelancer on another platform) and have only made 9 sales so far. My lowest price is 20 but all my sales so far came through custom offers and my average sales price is 60$. But the main point is that I deliver quality product/s.  

My niche is writing.

No, I understood completely.  I sometimes forget that sarcasm only works in English.  I was pointing out that if you are too scared to raise your prices, then maybe you are too timid to compete in the roller derby of business that is Fiverr.

Some sellers come here without any knowledge of freelancing. They set up shop according to a guru they saw on YouTube such as background removal.

I wouldn't hire a newbie for that. I'd hire one of my experienced, tried & true sellers in the photoshop category. Which goes back to $5 for 10 removal in hopes of getting orders. If they don't use good software or free software, it looks awful with jagged edges.

Some people can't raise prices because they have no expertise, hence, justifiably no confidence.

I think sellers should charge what they are worth for the country & city they live.
