  1. I'm done with Fiverr (for now), I'm starting a new job soon and I don't want to stress about this stupid website. I'll miss the Fiverr community, I've learned so much from all of your but Fiverr is unfair, bias and constantly penalises sellers. Goodbye for now 👋
  2. Because Fiverr statistics are absolute BS and unfair. Even if all of your statistics have been for months, they will penalise buyers for previous orders/messages etc.
  3. Most people have common sense, it is the minority of people who ruin it for others. Have you noticed how the News/Media don't tell you how many people have either fully or partically recovered from Covid-19? There's a reason, they're only telling us the number of cases and deaths; obviously depending on what country you're in, some countries are more honest than others.
  4. Use common sense, do what is best for you and you family.
  5. The https://community.fiverr.com links are incorrect. The Fiverr Blog links goes to the Forum and the Fiverr Forum link goes to the Blog.
  6. That makes complete sense Frank but my most popular gig was very successful and I haven’t got a single order from it in 4 months. I’m going to resume looking for a “real job”, unfortunatly Fiverr is no longer my prority, I can’t live without regular work/money and it makes no sense for me to stress out over something that is almost completely out of my hands now; I can only try for so long…
  7. Well, it’s happened again and I don’t even know what to do anymore… I’m in the exact same place as I was three months ago; I’ve had no work for a whole month, even though I finished my last job ahead of schedule and got a good review for it. Now all of my impressions/clicks are down even though I’ve been online most of the day fairly consistantly.
  8. I’m in the exact same place… I’ve had one order from one of my Gigs and now all of my impressions/clicks are down even though I’ve been online most of the day fairly consistantly.
  9. Thank you for answering my question - I didn’t read your original post properly. The fact that Fiverr allows Buyers to cancel an order even after the order has been completed and payments has been completed is absolutely ridiculous.
  10. I may be wrong here but this is a genuine question… Why would you publish the content to the buyers website before completing the order? Isn’t there a way of showing buyers a preview of the work without them being able to access it?
  11. My best selling Gig is still not appearing on the first page and it’s been 3 months. I’m getting clicks/impressions (1 order) from other Gigs but I’ve never got order from them before. None of this is making sense to me.
  12. That is a great video Frank, you should be very proud of yourself and thank you for always being so open and honest. I always appreicate videos like this and YouTube channels like Infographics, I had no idea how these videos are made but I almost always end up enjoying them and/or learning something new. Fiverr has been a frustrating platform for me to work on but I am not giving up, I would give anything to be able to work for myself and not working in a office being constantly hit over the head with office politics and foolishness.
  13. That makes sense and makes absolutely no sense at the same time hahaha…
  14. I just got my first order in 3 months, I finished ahead of schedule but now I’m more confused than ever: It is from a Gig that I had never got an order from beforeIt is a Gig that I haven’t edited since launching it last yearIt is a Gig that has over 100 impressions/6 clicks over 30 daysMy main (most successful) Gig is still getting less than 30 impressions/clicks over 30 days…:woman_shrugging:
  15. That’s good, a lot of people have been saying repeat buyer have helped them bounce back.
  16. That does make sense, I’ve seen a lot of discussion about private reviews on the forum lately. I like you think constructive critism is good for everyone, like it or not its how we all learn and grow as individuals. The more I learn about how Fiverr works, the more I want to leave to be honest. The whole system is (for a lack of a better term) rigged against sellers. Between the gig roations, private reviews, unfair cancellations and sellers being penalised for buyers neglect - I don’t even know what to say anymore.
  17. Thank you for making this thread. I’ve struggled with mental health my entire life and whenever I talk about it, a lot of people don’t take it seriously or refuse to help… I’m doing very well at all… I’m in a lose/lose situation. I lost my job last year June due to the pandemic (I haven’t been able to find a new one since), the Fiverrs changes has affected my main gig (even after updating) that I haven’t had work in over 2 months (I have other income streams but it’s barely minimum wage). I still live with my parents, there is stuff going on that has been affecting my mental health for my entire life and I can’t get away from it. Not having enough money or being able to travel or get away for a break from my situation has taken huge toll on my mental health; all I can do is hope my situation (and the pandemic) improves over the next few months. I try to always be optimistic and hide behind my smiles but that isn’t realistic anymore. I should also say, I’m not the only one in my family in this situation, we’ve put up with so much BS. I’ve been thinking about using some of my savings and going to a hotel for a week or so not too far away, just to give myself a break…
  18. About $5000 a month… And I have saved the majority of my money but that’s for important surgery. You act like building passive income streams by investing your money is easy. Without an ENORMOUS upfront investment you don’t even stand a chance. Even if you avoid real estate and go on sites like flippa to buy online business you need like a good near hundred thousands to get anyhting you could live off. I tried investing my money in tshirt designs, stock music and other sources of making passive income from content. But the market is insanley oversaturated, you barely stand a chance. Even with selling content not on a marketplace you need enormous amounts in ad spend to make even a dent. I have to agree, I feel like “diversify” is just a default statement, it’s an easy thing to say if you’ve been doing it for a long time. It’s not easy for most peopl to diversify their income. Most people stuggle to find/keep a job, let alone finding or creating another one. A lot of poeple (including myself) lost their jobs during this pandemic, Fiverr was a great alternative. The fact that Fiverr changed so much without telling us is unacceptable. A lot of people will tough it out/bounce back and a lot of poeple will leave Fiverr.
  19. It’s a lose lose situation, I don’t blame you.
  20. How long did it take for you impressions to come back after updating your Gigs?
  21. I had a similar order like this earlier this month… Unfortunately you’re going to have to pick your poison with this one. Either you cancel the order and don’t get paid for the work you’ve already completed. Or wait for the order to complete and then your on time stats will go down. This is another reason why Fiverr needs to reconsider their bias against sellers, this stuff is completely out of our control.
  22. Since reading multiple threads about this I’ve updated my picture/description/tags on my most successful Gig and I’ve gotten a Maximum of 2 impressions per day (down from 70+), no orders or messages a day since March 13th. Mod Note: Gig link removed. :roll_eyes:
  23. I do that but it only works half the time.
