  1. smashradio's post in Inbox Response dropping...Why? was marked as the answer   
    Your inbox response rate is based on how many (first) messages you responded to within 24 hours. So you should answer all messages before that 24 hour mark (aim for 3-6 hours response time on average and answer absolutely all messages). 
    I've experienced getting messages that was mistakenly flagged as spam, and I didn't see them for several days because I didn't check my spam folder. I've made the mistake of unmarking them as spam to respond to them, and because the messages was old it pulled my response rate down drastically. 
    So it's probably because some of your inbox messages haven't gotten a response within those 24 first hours. 
     
    Hope this helps!
  2. smashradio's post in Sales volume has decreased drastically after the introduction of Seller Plus was marked as the answer   
    Fiverr is a business. They take care of the entire platform, marketing, servers, support and so on. I don't think 20% is unfair. 
    Now the Seller Plus fee does not guarantee you success. You're paying for a person to help you with advice and you get some very nice insight into your stats and so on. 
    Is Fiverr moving towards a Pay To Play platform? In a way. And I think it's great! It means we can finally start sorting out who's serious about their business, and who's not. To grow a business you have to do marketing, you have to invest in experts to help you solve problems, and you have to pay for rent of space and so on.
    The same is true for Fiverr. I'd actually like to see a mandatory Fiverr Plus on Fiverr. No free gigs. No free nothing. Because the platform is getting overrun by people with no talent, no skills, and no willingness to spend even a second learning how the platform works. They just want free handouts. 
    It's a problem. Forcing people to pay up would separate the wheat from the chaff. If we don't want Fiverr to become a platform for cheap low-quality stuff it once were, things must change. 
    In addition, Fiverr has to make money. During the pandemic, the gig economy boomed. Now it's going back down. If we want Fiverr to last for many years to come, it's only good that we see a willingness in the team to find new ways of increasing revenue. 
    As a stockholder I would also appreciate that Fiverr makes new avenues of income, like promoted gigs and Fiverr Plus. 
    What you're complaining about is essentially "I have to spend money to run my business?!". Yes, you do. 
    /rant
    P.S. I don't think it's because of Fiverr Plus that you've seen a drop. It could be negative hidden feedback or the regular old gig rotation. Summer tends to be slower, even though I've experienced a business boom in august, for some reason. 
    And even though Fiverr Plus has helped me improve some things, I attribute my success to good marketing, optimization, and high-quality deliveries over time. 
    So if I can't put my success on "Fiverr Plus", you shouldn't put your slow period on it either. 
    Hopefully it will pick itself back up soon! :)
