Why did Fiverr decide to remove buyer requests? what was the reason? 
 

Since then, my impressions and orders had been drastically falling. Im getting disappointed, what was the reason or ideology behind this change? to reduce the orders?

Because it was a cesspool of buyers that wanted to take advantage of sellers. I've been here for 10 years almost and I never saw a buyer request that would be suitable for me. And mind you, I have a lower price when compared to most writers here. 

Plus, they are using AI to automatically match briefs with suitable professionals. Which is much better, because those buyer requests rarely turned into orders, and they most likely generated a lot of cancellations. After all, many of those people were scammers trying to take advantage... Removing buyer requests was a great thing honestly, and I think most veteran sellers would agree.

Buyer requests were a cesspool of "buyers" trying to lowball sellers. I've been here for 10 years and I never got an order via buyer requests, even if I applied to some. They never liked the "REALISTIC" offers, they just wanted low ball prices.

Once you apply, there's nothing else to do. Fiverr can take quite a while until they send a reply, be it YES or NO. Only a few people receive a positive answer, so keep that in mind. But yeah, they should contact you eventually.

Ive been here for more than 2 years. Became number 2 seller with 5star review. I have 7 active gigs and been few months since my impressions (all together) are less than 10 per week! 

 

Why!? what have I done wront, what should i do to fix it ! 

 

Any suggestion would be highly appreciated! I know i have to be patient, be active, promote it and etc! i did them all! but I feel like something is wrong!

I see new sellers with more than 300 impressions per gig !
