  1. A post was merged into an existing topic: W-9 US Verification Requirement
  2. I am closing this conversation. For all W-9 related questions, please see this discussion thread: W-9 US Verification Requirement
  3. Hi Everyone, In the next few day, some of you will see that we (Fiverr) will be asking sellers who are defined as a US Person* to complete a W-9 form regarding their activity on Fiverr. You will receive a notification on the Fiverr website and an email message asking you to check your status within 30 days, in a form of a short questionnaire. If in fact you are classified as a US Person*, you will undergo a short process in which you will fill in Form W-9 that contains standard business information to include your contact information, full address and tax forms. Fiverr will not use the information submitted as part of filling the Form W-9 for any purpose, apart from sending a 1099 form at the end of the year to the applicable tax authorities and update your billing address on Fiverr. Please note that all sellers are required to check if they need to fill out a Form W-9, regardless of their place of residence. By not doing so, within 30 days, your Gigs will be subject to automatic deactivation. Please read this article carefully for all the information. FAQ - When Fiverr is required under applicable laws, it will send a 1099 form at the end of the year to the applicable tax authorities. Currently, this applies to US-based sellers who earned at least $20,000 in that year and had at least 200 separate orders. Any transaction, including tips is counted toward the 200 transactions. An order and a tip are each seperate transatctions. Money earned. In certain circumstances, we may disclose the data in your W-9 form, with applicable US tax authorities, or as otherwise required by applicable law. None of this information will be displayed publicly on Fiverr. Please leave additional questions below. *For a definition of “US Person” please read more here: https://www.irs.gov/individuals/international-taxpayers/classification-of-taxpayers-for-us-tax-purposes
  4. This was an official Fiverr email. There was a small glitch with the W9 page right away, but it’s fixed now. https://sellers.fiverr.com/en/article/w-9-collection
  5. 1536×806 108 KBSometimes even top-rated sellers with excellent reviews need a little assistance getting their Gig in front of new buyers. Why? Because there’s tons of amazing talent to be discovered on Fiverr. But today we’re launching a simple way to help your Gig stand out from the rest, introducing Promoted Gigs. Promoted Gigs provides talented and experienced freelancers on Fiver the opportunity to grow and expand their business with only a few clicks. With Promoted Gigs, high-quality freelancers on Fiverr now have the chance to amplify and enhance their business as well as grow their revenue. What are the other benefits of Promoted Gigs? Show your Gigs in prime locations. Once your bid is accepted, it will appear in the most desirable area of the page — the top. Pay only for results. You’ll only pay for valid clicks, not traffic — so you won’t be charged unless someone clicks on your Gig. Control the amount you spend . Set a daily limit to help control how much you spend, and update your daily limit daily to continue to outbid your competitors for prime placements. Boost your revenue, maximize your visibility, and get your Gig in front of more buyers. How do I set up an ad? What Gigs can be promoted? How can I change my bid? How to manage my daily spend limit? How do I deactivate my promoted Gig? How am I charged for my ad’s activity? Where will my ad appear and who can see it? How can I measure my ad’s success and optimize it? All information and questions can be found here: https://sellers.fiverr.com/en/article/promoted-gigs
  6. FYI - the mobile app should show Gig analytics today.
  7. We’re back to action. Thanks for your patience everyone!
  8. This looks like it was a Cloudflare issue. A lot of companies lost connectivity for a few minutes.
  9. We are aware of some connectivity issues trying to connect to Fiverr. Thank you for your patience while we work to resolve.
  10. Thank you everyone who applied. I am passing along the list and if you are selected, you will be notified by the team.
  11. Good news! I just received word that the rollout is complete and all users should see their Gig impressions data returned to normal. If you still do not see the fix, please log out, try clearing cookies and logging back in. If that still doesn’t work, please contact support with your information and we can investigate. Thank you all again for your patience while we fixed this bug. I know it impacted everyone differently and we’re as happy as you to see it resolved.
  12. Hi everyone, We are in the final stages of testing the fix for this issue. No final timeline for full rollout to all users, but wanted to give you a quick update of what I know.
  13. Icebreaker is a platform we use to do these “meetings” Its a way to get conversations going an meet others from specific groups. icebreaker.video Icebreaker — Online events that build communityGather your peeps, spark new connections, and have fun together – no matter where you are. It’s worked well for us to host these small/medium sized meetings.
  14. So using this average we’d only be talking about $500 to engage 10 users for 30 minutes of their time each, and that’s peanuts for a company this size. A suggestion would be to credit participant’s accounts so they can use it on Fiverr. The money still stays on the platform while offering them a compensation for their time. I don’t have a problem doing certain activities for free, or with people that decide to do it as the way I see it can actually be a nice experience, but it does bother me Fiverr wouldn’t be more proactive about offering a monetary compensation considering the business they are in. With that being said I do hope it works out well and it somehow help everyone experience on the website better. I agree 100%. Most of the time when we do larger scale user testing and feedback sessions we include compensation. On the other side, we want to try to engage the internal employees who don’t always interact with community members and encourage them to have active relationships with the seller & buyer communities. This is one of the smaller events we’re hosting to start building those bonds. If both groups find value in this activity, then we’d like to continue and evolve the program that would begin to include compensation.
  15. One of the pieces of feedback earlier this year was around categories that are high traffic, but low engagement (My Fiverr Gigs) Recently, I was able to configure it so that these categories no longer show up in the “Latest” section of the forum. This should make the “Latest” section a little more friendly for searching out discussions. As always, feedback is welcome.
  16. Yes, I will also be a part of this and active in participating. So, for what it’s worth… there a chance to video chat with me too!

  23. Hey everyone, Just spoke with our Product team and they’re still working on this. Unfortunately, it’s still going to be a few weeks. There’s a lot going on with this and if you’ve ever done any programing, when you start pulling on a thread, sometimes you find something 2 other threads that need cleaning up.
