bluejdev Posted April 25 Share Posted April 25 Hey all, I recently decided to give fiverr a try as a seller and after having to do the ol' close down my account to reopen in my business name, I uploaded some gigs and started getting clicks and messages quite frequently. (And couple of orders) Last week I was uploading another gig, when I noticed a fiverr notification saying I needed to update one of my current gigs pricing??! So I clicked through to the gig edits and it said I had to raise the price of basic from $35 to a minimum of $70!! It would not let me enter any lower... I was happy with the $35 tag as this was for a phonecall to discuss the buyers project & offer advice, before committing to something that might be too complex or out of budget etc. So I changed the price as per fiverrs demand and upped the time of the call as the gig was now overpriced for the offering. (And since have been forced to increase the cost on another gig) The problem is since doing this my message rate has just flat lined to zero! I was getting minimum a message every couple of days and some days upto 4 or 5 messages. My question is why was I forced to up the price? it was fine as it was for me... I've been googling (on & off) for a few days now but got no answer other than editing a gig can increase or decrease gig ranking.. which I understand already.. Any insights? Anyone else been told to up the price? 5 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
