  1. Well, if none of them are responding that does not mean they are spam. Keep applying. Just remember, you have a lot of competition and that may be why you are not selling any responses at this point. Spam or not, it doesn't really matter until you start seeing responses.
  2. And 4-Stars is bad? Wow. You are lucky the Buyer leaves you any reviews. Remember, this is NOT a contest. Freelancing should be a business and a career.
  3. The best advice I've received since becoming a freelancer? Nothing. I sort of "lone wolfed" my way through this career change plotting my own path. Do I know everything there is to know about freelancing? Of course not, but in the 7+ years I've been doing it I have made it a fun career. Could I do better? Probably, but I like where I am now and only have myself to credit or blame.
  4. It doesn't matter. A link to your Fiverr profile should be enough. I think you are being played.
  5. Your best bet is to explore what Sellers have used to describe their Gigs in the same Gig category as yourself. In other words, check out what your competition is doing. DO NOT COPY what they have in their Gig descriptions, but use those examples to inspire you to make yours better.
  6. I agree with @newsmikeregarding your use of the word craft. For me, freelancing is my career. It's a job. I've been freelancing full-time since 2016. It pays my bills and then some.
  7. You paid a down payment without seeing the work first? Need I say more?
  8. You should be able to just send the link to your profile. If the company looking to hire you won't accept that as proof of your working on Fiverr, then they are scamming you. Simple.
  9. I'm noticing that the number of new posts on the "new" Forum pages are far less than they used to be. Am I imagining this? What's you take on the situation?
  10. If you had paid attention when you read the Fiverr Terms of Service (you did read them, right?) you would already know the answer to this question.
  11. And this is a problem because you don't want potential Buyers to find you?
  12. Every six months or so I raise my prices across the board. Oddly enough, my average selling price has gone up along with that. Go figure.
  13. You asked the question, what would I do in such a situation? Well, I've been there. Clearly the Buyer did not read all they needed to read in your Gig details. I wouldn't fret over it as it will likely happen again sometime. You just have to expect freelancing to be great some days, not-so-great on others, and downright disappointing on a few more. It's like that in any type of business. Carry on, and move forward - which is what I've done in the same situation.
  14. I have met the requirements for well over a year. However, the Fiverr Team hand selects who gets TRS and who doesn't. Personally, it's not an issue to me. I'm actually happy that it isn't automatic as that prevents some Sellers from chasing TRS status as if it were a game.
  15. I am both a Seller and a Buyer. One account. That's all you need. Just switch between buying and selling from your Dashboard (top right).
