  1. Some people find this hard to understand, I don’t know why is that. This topic serves as a suggestion and that’s all. A suggestion. I mean, it’s in Fiverr Site Suggestion part of forum. Nothing more, nothing else. If someone who has any impact on this notice it then great, if not that’s also fine. At this point all these passive aggressive negative responses are nothing more than a spam and I don’t know why they have need to insist on how this will never work. I understand, in your opinion this isn’t going to change anything and/or you don’t agree that most sellers should have same clearing period.
  2. Do you not get the point @emmaki is trying to pass across? I think it’s pretty straightforward. Talk to CS? they’ll give you a canned response. Ask the CEO? Well, good luck getting to him. Put it on the forum? Let’s see what that gets you. Maybe you can get a programmer, or a hacker right here on Fiverr to hack the system and implement whatever it is that you need 😏. Beyond that, I’m uncertain what you hope to achieve. PS: I’m not saying I enjoy it the way it is, but there’s nothing that can be done about it, so I’m used to it by now… and yeah! I’m starting to enjoy it too. As this is Fiverr Site Suggestions part of forum I posted a suggestion. Do you not get the suggestion I’m trying to pass across? I think it’s pretty straightforward.
  3. I believe I’m the only TRS on this post (thus far). Don’t misrepresent the position of others as an elite dismissal. Now, has Our Glorious Leader deigned to respond to you, or were you attached by a vicious squad of tumbleweed and birdsong? Potential downside: Plenty of level 2 sellers are making equal to, or more money than TRS, @grydlynnes. It’s well documented in other areas of the forum. A popular level 2 programmer/web designer will naturally have larger projects and budgets than someone who churns out articles at $5 a pop (and writers are churners). As for chargebacks, that’s just a luck of the draw: it’s untrue to say x gets more of than them than y, We do not have the full data, just some self-publicized cases. As for the off-topic stuff, it’s a shame that you can’t see the utility behind it, as it’s largely how to deal with the terrible tragedy of dealing with a 14-day cash turnaround in a world of NET much more than that. There is no message about why this is bad–only the truth that this is a waste of time. Enjoy the birdsong and tumbleweed. Alright, if you think this is waste of time why are you spending your time responding in this topic? It doesn’t concern you, as you’re already enjoying privilege of having 7 day clearing period. I’m not sure what your comments has to do with simple suggestion to make Fiverr better place for rest of sellers. It’s like you’re on a quest to force people into thinking how this is waste of time. Fine, that’s your opinion, don’t shove it down everybody’s throat. As for your colorful explanation of potential downside, of “quick fix that does something weird”, that’s not how any of this works. System is already developed and set in place, only thing they need to do is make it apply to larger number of users. Looking from technical side, this would take maximum up to a month, with all the testing and precociousness, so there isn’t any real downside to this, it’s matter of good will of those who are in charge to listen.
  4. From my perspective there’s no downside in making clearing period shorter, and from comments I can see there’s good amount of people who agree with me. Interesting thing is that only people who don’t think this is good are actually TRS, I’m not sure why is that. There wasn’t a single message why this could be bad for sellers, only some random stories that go offtopic.
  5. Here’s the Twitter, you can see for yourself. t*********m Micha Kaufman (michakaufman) As part of our new #InDoersWeTrust campaign I want your thoughts: What can @Fiverr improve on or create in 2017 to help you do? #Fiverr2017 11:01 AM - 11 Jan 2017 There’s a lol in there about someone who wants 3 day withdrawal for TRS. I mean, this is really the crux of the matter: you can’t make everyone happy… Sent there as well, thanks for the link.
  6. It’s suggestion to make this platform better place to work, if this post makes any difference great, if not, at least I tried. Customer support was in most of my tickets ( even though there are some great people who work there ) useless, I asked about one thing, they answered with some script that had nothing to do with my question, so there’s no point in asking them about this topic. As far for changes, even though main chunk of income still come from here, that becomes less and less of a case, which is good thing I guess. But again, that’s not important as focus of this topic is on something else.
  7. And that’s why I’m trying to change current way of things. There’s a reason why competitive services provide 7 day clearing period and more perks as you make them more money, such as lower fees as you progress etc. This suggestion would make Fiverr better place to work for bunch of us while not harming others, so I don’t see reason not to be implemented. As for other things you suggested, life is not same for everyone and when you have to provide for your family at young age you don’t have much room to maneuver, but that’s another story, I’m sure no one here want to hear about. Point is, in my, and from what I can see, other people opinions as well, this could be a big improvement that should be moderately easy to implement.
  8. Because some of us instead of doing bunch of small gigs, do smaller amount of bigger jobs, and if you for example have to wait up to 17 days after work is complete to receive your funds, that start to become an issue.
  9. Haven’t you guys heard of NET 30? Here is a helpful link en.wikipedia.org Net DNet 10, net 15, net 30 and net 60 (often hyphenated "net-10" and/or followed by "days", e.g., "net 10 days") are forms of trade credit which specify that the net amount (the total outstanding on the invoice) is expected to be paid in full and received by the seller within 10, 15, 30 or 60 days after the goods are dispatched or service is completed. Net 30 or net 60 terms are often coupled with a credit for early payment. The word net in this sense means "total after all discounts." It originally ... What a horror, eh? That’s regular freelance income and it’s not guaranteed! You’ll have to chase up those malingering clients, not to mention market to them and all the other stuff. And you may not get paid until 3 months later! How desperately unfair the world of modern business is. If you have regular orders (i.e. on a daily, or near-daily basis), you get income cleared pretty much every day and this becomes a non-issue. If you are looking for quick cash, Fiverr isn’t the best platform. And yes, I do enjoy the 7-day withdrawal benefit from my golden throne, but you know what, apart from the first week where I had ‘double income’ it hasn’t made much difference. I still only take money out at a certain threshold, which can be in a week, or in a month. It depends. Just work towards becoming a TRS instead of trying to change something as minor as this. You could focus on improving your skills or something. Stuff like that. This isn’t minor by any means.
  10. This isn’t something that should be privilege of the few, 2 weeks is too long clearance period.
  11. 3 days seems a little bit unrealistic, 7 days are pretty much way to go in my opinion. We know it’s possible and it shouldn’t be hard to implement since Top Rated Sellers already have this.
  12. If you want a direct answer, I would suggest you take this directly to customer support. This has been on the wishlist for a long time but I personally don’t see it happening. I don’t have very good experience with support, they’re usually giving me scripted answers that are often semi related to my actual question, if I’d open a ticket asking them about this, answer would be something along “Clearing period is 2 weeks. Thank you for contacting us” lines. And as this is Fiverr Site Suggestion part of the site, it looks like perfect place to post suggestion I have about this website. Just in case any of those in charge actually read it.
  13. Hi, This might be something to consider for Fiverr administration, as I believe it will mean a lot to good amount of sellers, I know it will to me, as I made Fiverr my main source of incomes and a full time job. I know this is one of advantages for Top Rated Sellers, so it shouldn’t be too hard to implement for at least 2nd lvl sellers. Is this something you will consider doing as 20% fee is already a good amount, can we at least get smaller clearing periods? Would like some feedback on this from people who are in charge of this and/or have any impact on this platform, is this possible, and if not, why is that? Thank you. Best regards, Ivan
  14. Way I used to do it is offering really cheap service for requested job, for example something that’s worth 20, 30 $ I’ve done for 5, hell I’ve even built 5+ pages websites for 25$. Also, make sure work that you do get is done quality and go for that extra mile in making customer happy. This will help you build your reputation and portofolio and make some progress in this Fiverr quest. It can be tiresome, but if you keep doing it, you’ll get bigger projects, that require less work and pay more.
