Allowing repeats of custom order

Question

Hello all,

Normally, when a client wants to get multiples of my gig, they would just select the gig, buy it, select the gig again, buy it, etc., right up to my maximum order queue.

However, when I offer a client a custom order, how can I allow/encourage that client (and only that client) the opportunity to re-order with the same conditions, and how to limit my queue on that? I ask because I now find myself in that position... I've never seen a custom order from a buyer's perspective, so I don't know if it can be re-ordered, and whether it has a queue limit.

Michael

On mobile mode only (not desktop), you can set up templates for custom orders and send them to your specific clients.

Each offer you send to a client can only be used once, and you can choose to set a deadline on it (or not).

You can limit the orders in queue by using the template to create custom offers one at a time (or 4 at a time, whatever your queue limit is).

You can also set expiration dates (or withdraw your offers) so the buyer doesn't order past a certain period.

I think Fiverr is missing an opportunity, which is cannot quite be solved by tweaking the Subscription option.

As it stands, Subscriptions are TIME based. They can be renewed every week/month/whatever.

But if a client wants 5-10 gigs per week, or even an arbitrary number of gigs, it'd be nice to be able to offer ONE client a CUSTOM gig just for them which we allow RENEWALS, and can LIMIT the orders in the queue...

Just a thought.

In the meantime, I'll either send the client multiple custom order offers, or bundle their requests into a weekly gig (but that lowers my completed gigs count...)

I agree. I have a few buyer who currently use subscriptions, and think a renewal option would work much better. They can better control when exactly they order the next one and how many they buy consecutively. Subscriptions only offer six, I believe, before we have to make another custom order. I like your idea!
