Money that doesn't leave my account?

A while back, I had placed an order, and had to cancel because the seller was unresponsive (several days after delivery date, no product/service, no contact, etc) and the money seemed to go back into my fiverr account. I now have a lingering $4 on my account that does not go away. I have tried reverting it back to my paypal, but it won’t. I just bought another gig for a different service, will the $4 on my account go toward this new order, or will it all be pulled from paypal?

I would still contact Customer Support as it should $5 total. But you won’t get it back into your Paypal. Any time an order is cancelled and money is returned to the buyer, it is return as “Fiverr Credit.” You can use it to purchase another gig here on Fiverr but you won’t be able to withdraw it.



(I know it sucks but it’s to protect us sellers from people purchasing a gig, getting delivery, then cancelling the order. They are less likely to do so if they are only going to get Fiverr Credit back. Some believe, and I’m inclined to agree, that it would be nice if the refund was a “real” refund and not just credit if the order was cancelled prior to delivery. If it’s cancelled after delivery, then make it credit.)

The refunded order was so long ago, I don’t know why it is that amount… It may have been much more, but I made a purchase afterwards that dipped into the credit.



I’ll wait for my recent order to clear, and see if my fiverr credit is accepted, otherwise I guess I’ll have to contact CS.

I have the same problem. I cancelled this order and the $5 just sits there. This was almost a year ago. I gave up a while back trying to get help from fiverr. It seems almost impossible to get any kind of dialogue going with their support team.



It’s only $5 and I know I’m just going to end up buying a gig with it (which is what fiverr wants), but still, it’s the principle

Hey, just an update if anyone was still curious.



I was talking to CS about another order I needed to cancel, so now I have $9 instead of the initial $4. They said because it wasn’t exactly $5, the fiverr credit would basically never leave my account. Now that I have more, whether I buy something that requires shipping, or a digital delivery, it should take the money from there (credit). Whatever I have left over from my total credit, I will need to start a customer service request, and they can transfer the remaining credit to my revenue balance, which can then be transferred to Paypal (minus $1 fee, of course).
