  1. The partial withdrawal feature, if implemented would actually encourage sellers to make purchases, especially one that can help grow their business. And for that reason, I think Fiverr should look into it.
  2. Ever since I made 25 bucks writing about the advantages of sleeping without underwear, I've taken my writing career rather seriously. I've now made over $40,000 in just over two years on Fiverr, doing what I love best. As writers, we've all had some cringeworthy moments, but a few of us have had scary movie episodes. One that stands out for me was when one client insisted that I write about the feminine side of Jesus. I mean, where in the world would I find that? The more I tried to shift their focus to portraying Jesus' compassion, love, and care to character traits attributed to femininity, the more I got shut down. They then said, "God is a woman, find supporting scripture to back it up." Ladies and gentlemen, I still have nightmares. I just might never recover. What are your ghostwriting horror stories? I'd love to hear them.
  3. I'm so happy for you Km. Keep up the good work. I've been on Fiverr since 2018 and I've completed over 500 jobs. I'm still hoping to join the elite group of Top-rated freelancers.
  4. I recently quit WhatsApp and opted for Telegram for the same reasons. I got tired of feeling controlled to check 'what I may have missed.' Social media is driving almost everyone crazy these days (in my opinion) and more people should wake up to this stark reality.
  5. Yeah. You loose your reviews and your rankings on the search page.
  6. Maybe it’s just me but the quality of buyer requests on Fiverr this year has been totally awful. Last year, I send between 6-9 buyer requests each day on the average. But these days, I can’t seem to find any reasonable buyer request. Most of these buyer requests are full of grammatical errors, unrealistic expectations and an unreasonable budget. Any ideas?
  7. Is it just me or has there been a drop in Fiverr orders? I’m about to enter panic mode 😨
  8. This is cool. I’ve gone 1-star on a buyer twice. The first was completely deserved. The buyer asked rudely that I review an order which was automatically closed. That wasn’t a problem and since he had mentioned that he made changes to my final delivery, I politely asked him to send in his copy. He then sent it in as a PDF file so very politely I mentioned that he had sent me the wrong file as I expected it in editable Word Format which was what I submitted. The next thing I saw was very disturbing, he said so many unpleasant things and before I knew it he left a review in anger. The second 1-star review was also disappointing but could have been avoided if I had agreed to cancel. The buyer was quite satisfied with the job and asked me to make some quick reviews because I used “certain words” he wouldn’t normally use. I asked for instances but he couldn’t provide any. On my second delivery, he sent in a dispute citing that the entire project was a waste. I was pissed, to say the least. In my opinion, buyer experience is relative. In any case, I’d suggest you leave honest reviews about your overall experience rather than giving every buyer a 5-star rating for hiring your services.
  9. I am really sorry about this and as a seller myself, I understand how frustrating this can be. You should contact customer support and provide evidence that everything was fine on your end.
  10. Actually, we are not supposed to know how the Fiverr algorithm works. This is why Fiverr doesn’t tell sellers all of the details of the system. The algorithm is proprietary information – it is not public knowledge, and this is my intention. As for your comment that the algorithm needs to be fixed… I honestly don’t think it’s broken. It is likely operating exactly as it is supposed to. Just because the system doesn’t work the way some sellers may want it to, does not mean that is is broken. I experienced the same problem and I contacted customer support but their reply was there’s nothing they can do about it. Here’s why I think the algorithm is flawed. Over the last three months, I have gotten up to 66K impressions and completed orders worth over $10,000 on the writing category. I’ve been on the first page in this category and during this period I’ve maintained a 4.9 overall rating, 100% response rate, order completion was at 93% and on-time delivery is at 100%. Now all of a sudden I am being relegated to the shadows. My impressions dropped from 66K to 14K within seven days. Now I understand that Fiverr’s model rewards doers so how can a seller without a review suddenly rank above me in a category I was previously regarded as one of the top sellers? I believe they made some changes to their algorithm and may be working to fix it (although they’ve mentioned nothing of it). In any case, repeat buyers have been the saving grace.
  11. Good. Please keep us updated. Sorry about the experience :hugs:
  12. 😕 all the more reason it seems confusing. Could it be a conversion bug? I really can’t say here… Send an email to CS and ask that it’s escalated to the technical team.
  13. Oh in that case it’s pretty simple. I experienced a payment bug about two months ago and CS explained it to me. What happened was a client requested a chargeback and because I had already been paid, the money was deducted from my recent balance. Maybe this is what happened to you as well. Reach out to CS.
