  1. @araftalukder976 You've posted in the News section of the forum. Could you please move your post to the Fiverr Questions forum (as this is a question related to Fiverr, and not news), where you're much more likely to get an answer to your question.
  2. You’ll be able to offer your services by creating a gig. If that doesn’t mean anything to you yet, it will once you’ve read through the Terms of Service, and worked through some of the help articles on Fiverr.com.
  3. Hi @ginspirationsco Welcome to the forum. You don’t appear to have created any gigs yet? I’d recommend having a read through the sites Terms of Service to better understand how Fiverr works. Fiverr.com Fiverr's Terms of Service One marketplace, millions of professional services. Browse. Buy. Done.
  4. It’s literally written on the Levels page of Fiverr… image1125×814 120 KB Fiverr.com Fiverr's Levels Fiverr's Levels provide sellers even more tools to make money on Fiverr.
  5. Is there any chance of hosting any of this content and making it available to view, for those of us who were unable to attend?
  6. 100% agree - I learnt this the hard way too, and make a point of always setting an expiry. But I only learnt this within the last year or so, and have no idea how many offers are still ‘out there’… It would be great if there were a way of quickly seeing all of your pending offers.
  7. I’m always astounded at how many people come on to the forum to complain that they are being ‘scammed’ because a buyer is demanding a refund, but fail to acknowledge that they’re offering dodgy scam services themselves, with this gig being a perfect example. If eBay want a seller to verify their bank details, they expect the seller to use THEIR OWN bank, not hire some guy on Fiverr to use his bank temporarily. How could you possibly think that this is OK? That’s not just against eBay’s Terms of Service, and therefore Fiverr’s own Terms of Service, it’s essentially fraud. It’s like saying “oh it’s OK, I can sit this exam for you, and then once I’ve passed, you just change the name of the qualification to your name, no problem”. This will sound harsh, but I don’t care - I hope Fiverr CS remove both your gig and your account. You’re engaging in fraud and have no right to be here on Fiverr, and services like this do nothing but drag the Fiverr brand through the mud, validating the people who believe that Fiverr is overrun with people offering scam services.
  8. @murtaza_1876 - what service do you offer here exactly? Can you explain what you actually do? I can’t help but think that inputting your bank details to another seller’s account (a seller who has had their eBay account suspended) in an attempt to circumvent the suspension, would be a HUGE breach of eBay’s own terms of service, no? That in itself is also a breach of Fiverr’s terms of service.
  9. The issue, from what I can see, is that you’re using a service other than Fiverr to convert €17.54 into $. For example, if I look on Google, a $20 gig SHOULD cost €16, if you go by Google’s conversion rate. But this means nothing, as you’re using Fiverr’s platform. This isn’t a bug - Fiverr use their own currency conversion rate, NOT the same rate used by Google or major banks. Is this a good thing? Not really, especially when you’re converting USD to GBP to withdraw like we do. But it’s Fiverr’s platform, and they’re allowed to do as they please. If you want to use their service, and sell to a European buyer, you have no choice but to go with it. As has already been mentioned, either you or the buyer need to absorb the cost. And honestly, I would suggest that this is something that the buyer needs to deal with, not you.
  10. We’ve definitely had our fair share of the old ‘energetic but melancholy, with angry passion, but also like you’re whispering a bedtime story to a sleeping child’ types of nonsense briefs over the years! The funniest that comes to mind lately is a TV ad that we did. The ad involves two astronauts working on a space station. The script was basically humming the tune to Sprach Zarathustra (I confess I had to Google it, but then had an “oh, thaaaaaaat tune” moment when I did) - but here was the kicker. Because we were playing the role of being ‘in space’, we had to try and record at a really high quality, but as though we were wearing a space helmet. We ended up just recording right up next to the microphone rather than a few inches away, and the client was really happy, but it was definitely one of the funnier/weirder jobs we’ve done. What I remember about the job though, was that the client never thought to contact us first. In fairness, he ordered perfectly - included all the relevant usage rights etc, so no issue there. But at no point did he think that it might be a good idea to have a chat first about whether we’d want to record ourselves humming in space… 🙂
  11. I personally think that the niche market for subscriptions is super-small, but Fiverr don’t want to admit just how small it actually is. Where I can really see this working, is where you’re literally swapping a service for money, rather than a tangible end product. So something like managing someone’s social profiles for example. You might agree on 10 hours per month of managing someone’s Twitter handle, and agree a price for it. Subscriptions could be great for that. Or perhaps some IT related work, bug-fixes, server maintenance etc. Instead of having to create a new order each time, why not just have it on repeat, until the client says otherwise? But anything where you’re delivering a product, like a voice over or a logo, or a website? I just don’t see what the benefit to most clients would be to commit to a specific volume of IDENTICAL orders each month. We have a client who orders about once a week on average, and their order values are always very similar. But, for example, they placed an order today, yet didn’t order once during March. I can’t imagine they would be happy at the notion of having to pay for something they didn’t need. (I’m not saying subscriptions shouldn’t exist as an option btw - if you can make use of it, good for you, I like that Fiverr have tried something new. I just feel like most sellers here are unlikely to be able to make use of it) What I think would be good, although I understand it would need a lot more work, would be a retainer service. We’ve got clients who we could perhaps sell the concept of buying an hour or two of our time each month, and they could simply dip into that as and when they need to, without having to put through random orders each time. Big companies with big budgets, who hate the faff of having to find a company credit card each time they want to order. One easy, repeat expense which looks neater on the client’s side, and is some guaranteed monthly income for us, and would sit nicely in the whole ‘Fiverr Business’ ecosystem the company is trying to build at the moment.
  12. Is this why you create so many posts each day, asking questions that you could easily find the answer for by simply searching either here on the forum, or via Google? I hate to be the bringer of bad news, but this is a strategy that, at best, will not benefit your profile at all, and at worst, will do your profile more damage than good, for a few reasons. If you believe that there are lots of buyers seeking out sellers here on the forum (there aren’t), then seeing you posting very basic questions each day isn’t going to inspire confidence in them.If you accept that the forum is predominantly populated by sellers, more so than buyers, then even if people go and look at your profile, we are NOT your target audience, and so the chances of you making a sale are very slim.If you accept that the Fiverr algorithm is constantly reviewing our profiles, assessing our ability to deliver what clients want, and that conversion rate plays a key role in this, then having lots of useless traffic delivering ‘clicks’ to your gigs, but not buying, could actually be quite harmful. It tells Fiverr that you are unable to convert the traffic that comes to your gig.I know that this advice will probably not be heeded - but this strategy of spamming the forum with basic questions all the time is really not going to help you out in the long-run.
  13. The answers to all your questions and more… Screenshot 2021-04-14 at 09.10.221734×1658 300 KB
  14. The fact that people continue to believe that a business listed on the NYSE would use a ‘rotation’ system for serving up search results, rather than an algorithm which focuses on matching spending buyers with appropriate, able sellers, truly baffles me. I can only assume it’s because it’s easier and less painful to blame poor performance on “rotation”.
  15. I second this, 100%. In my experience, so long as you can show Customer Support that the reason for the cancellation is Buyer error, outside of your control, they will always cancel, and always without it impacting your stats.
