Does your nationality determines the level of patronage on fiverr?

I have been watching Fiverr as a whole for almost a half year now. I don´t have anything bad to say about this site. From my observation, I agreed with @writer99025 ˝Nationality has got nothing to do with whether you succeed or fail on Fiverr˝. I have seen newbies here who have reached level 1 and 2. They don´t whine, they don´t complain (I am not saying you are whining/complaining, but some people do). Those newbies just do their best and made it regardless their nationalities. It´s just nice to see.

I think it may matter to some, just as it does in real life unfortunately, but in general nationality isn’t an issue.
I think that what does make a difference is language, comprehension and communication, and this might be perceived as a bias based against nationality. By this I mean that for some gigs buyers are going to want a seller that understands their requirements and that means finding someone who’s fluent in the language the seller is comfortable with.

I think so long as the seller can communicate competently in English and has good interpersonal skills along with a talent, your country won’t matter. Fiverr is very democratic in that respect, letting good sellers rise to the top. The real issue isn’t nationality, but desperation. It just so happens that a lot of desperate sellers come from certain nations and don’t have good English, don’t have great communication skills and have little to no discernible talent. Honestly, they all need their heads clapped together. The opportunity is there, but the onus is on the individual to take the steps needed to make the most of it. Panhandling and begging won’t work, nor will delivering shit on toast. Incidentally, go to the UK, you’ll make a fortune begging. I know this is true as I read it in the Daily Mail.

I’m not a native speaker; English is my second language, although I’ve been studying it since early childhood and live in Australia now which definitely helps. My primary income on Fiverr comes not even from translations, but from writing unique articles…in English! And I have no fear applying for the ‘native speakers only’ jobs here, often being able to get them. The thing is, “native speakers preferred” is in fact a polite version of “for God’s sake, don’t spam me if you can’t put a single sentence together properly”. The skill and your ability to fulfill the customer’s needs are the only important variables here.

Nationality has nothing to do with your success on fiverr. I do a lot videos here on fiverr like spokesperson videos etc and English is not my native language. Certain nationalities can most definitely relate better to certain audiences but ultimately your ability to communicate with the client and the quality of your work dictates how successful you can be on this platform.

no, thats not true the people will only see your work not your nationlaity but in some cases some people are really comfortable working with the people of specific area or region, but this doesnt mean that you cant make a difference if you are not from a country that has a good repo, stay put and i am sure you will find people that will be happy to work with you

It was my opinion before I actually came here combined with 'I’m better than $5!". It’s a very damaging rep. The sad thing is many of the sellers who contribute to this rep can’t see what they’re doing wrong. Not very cleaver.
