Requesting a gig


Recommended Posts

Actually, the people who are getting approved are only doing so because Fiverr doesn’t catch them. Request a gig is strictly intended for buyers, not for sellers. Sellers create gigs and buyers can buy them. If a buyer doesn’t see what they need on the search page, or if they have a specialized request, they can use request a gig to tell people what they are looking for.

If you have a gig that matches their need, you can submit an offer to that buyer including a very brief sentence to let them know a bit more detail. Sellers sometimes misunderstand this and try to post their gigs for sale in that area, but when Fiverr catches them they should be removed. Some sellers also deliberately mis-use it to try to get attention, which is a really bad idea since abusing the system enough can get your account banned.

To show you a specific example, right now there is a request posted by a buyer that says this: " Im looking for writers in Chinese language who can help me to write articles in my website." This is an appropriate use of the request a gig system.

There is another post on the request a gig system that says "I want some writing job… where you give me some pages… and I will type it and give you in your desired font… " This is an incorrect use of the system because it is a seller trying to attract buyers. That user can be banned if they continue doing that.

Does that help?

@mariarajput786 I’m sorry to be blunt, but you are definitely incorrect. The sellers who post on request a gig are doing so against the rules. Fiverr has a hard time keeping up with them so it happens, but as I said before, it can get your account banned as it is considered spam to sell on request a gig.

You are welcome to ask Customer Support if you wish, or you can believe a forum moderator (which I am) but you will get the same answer. To encourage other people to break the rules is also inappropriate so I will remove the post you wrote to the person asking the question.

Reply to @mariarajput786: Yes, that makes sense and I agree. Some users are buyers only, some are sellers only, and others are both buyers and sellers. I am both a buyer and a seller because I sell gigs but I also buy other people’s gigs. So, if I use request a gig like you described to get a gig cover designed, I am acting as the buyer in that case and it’s fine.

Just for anyone else who comes along looking for instructions, here is a longer step-by-step guide for them as well. 🙂
