Is fiverr dying


Recommended Posts

it came to my attention that alot of sellers including top sellers who have been on the platform for years are being given the middle finger for no obvious reason, and seeing the main issues is this new ridiculous "succes score", is fiverr going to take our complaints into concideration or are we just lambs to the algorithmic slaughter..

There are less buyers. There are also WAYYYY more new sellers, many of which use AI and have little to no talent. So you can see why they added that success score thing, to differentiate the millions of sellers/gigs. There are less buyers on Fiverr based on the latest info, however the platform itself is not dying. Yet due to having more competition and less buyers, you can see a lot of sellers, even the older ones, struggling.

Many users may not be feeling the effects more than others depending on what they sell here. Fiverr is not dying, but it is definitely changing. A few things lead to this:

- Oversaturation of sellers on the platform selling very similar services (many also not qualified to do the job). I personally had someone try to sell me AI work at a high price (which I view as ‘cheating’ and ‘stealing’). 

- Pro sellers are most reliable, however that $300-1000 price tag is not affordable to everybody during times of inflation (so less orders, or orders only from buyers who can afford these higher rates).

- Scammers from both sellers/buyers sides (makes users view the site cautiously)

- New review setup (encouraged to bring more honestly in the review system from buyers), many sellers are complaining about certain aspects of this new review system that may burden/hinder their status on the platform. 

- Unprofessional users not handling business in a mature fashion. Profanity or immaturity. Causing both sellers and buyers to become frustrated. 

- Competition from the outside world (Upwork, Freelancer, etc).

This is possible. Because most of my return buyers are complaining about how they increased the service fee to $3. Some of them don't even want to place orders also.

You have a total of two reviews and opened your account in 2022.

It looks like your perspective is strictly that of a buyer, since you don't have any reviews as a seller.
