  1. I tried to onboard the new Fiverr Seller Plus feature to my account a few days back and almost went to the final page and chickened out just before paying for it as I had to discuss it with my partner. I tried it again today, but every time I click the "Join Seller Plus" button, it simply redirects me to my dashboard. Not sure why it's happening now that I'm ready to join the program.
  2. While I do have more "freedom" to earn more compared to my "regular job" friends, they have the freedom of their colleagues not messaging them post 7PM (on most days at least). I find most "potential buyers" reaching out to me way into the evening and even past my bedtime. I feel compelled to respond to them especially if I had a late-evening delivery and they can clearly see that I am online. I don't want to leave them hanging and push my response time post 1 hour, not do I want to say "Hey" and ghost them. What do you do when this happens to you? An automated message that says "Hey I'm not online right now...see you in the morning." or something else?
  3. Straightforward answers have been given by others in the past, so I'll try giving an analogy instead. Consider your new Fiverr account like a newly opened steakhouse. If the decor looks good, the food smells good and there's a hint of potential, you'll have customers willing to give a try. Now whether you give them their medium rare with some complementary drink or leave them chewing on a burnt piece of log—that decides if more people show up or not.
  4. Unfortunately, most of them are. I try to stay away from clients in the Crypto space just as a precaution.
  5. He wanted me to write marketing material to sell these products 😂
  6. I have actually found the Fiverr support extremely supportive. They have helped me every single time I needed them to. I noticed that when I just started on Fiverr, my luck wasn't too good with CS, but over time it's been perfect. The reason? Communication. 1: When you reach out to Fiverr, make sure your message is polite, clear and emotional. The less you sound like a robot, the more effective it will be. Ensure that a long message isn't one huge paragraph and instead multiple with plenty of white space. Also, NEVER say anything disrespectful about the buyer. 2: In your chat with the buyer, do not use profanity and be polite (a little rude here and there is still okay if the buyer's being rude, but it's unprofessional nonetheless). Also, Fiverr support are mostly native English speakers, so if there's a language barrier and what you say isn't easy to understand, then things might not go so smoothly for you. Ending thought—Fiverr's getting better and I'm sure many sellers will attest to that belief.
  7. There's one issue though. If you're a seller and are "Out Of Office"/Unavailable, then Fiverr shows you as unavailable sometimes, making it hard for the other seller to send you a message. Just something I noticed recently.
  8. It's happened to me twice in the past! One of them sold fake login pages and phishing pages to scammers. Another one (more recent) had a website that sells narcotics and some of the worst street drugs (Her***, Fen****, Met*, etc) Yeah, I almost threw up in shock when I saw those. So I went ahead and politely declined the offer to work and sent a little message to CS. The account of the "phishing pages" didn't get taken down for weeks. The account of the other seller got taken down immediately. He created a new one and sent me a message 10 minutes later *smh* 🤯 Anything similar happened to you?
  9. I don't know about you, but I've found myself digging through plenty of recent posts on this forum and must admit that most of them are complaints either about people getting demoted, having a bad experience with the CS/buyer or how they feel helpless. Reading all this can make even the most seasoned seller twitch a little. But here's the thing, you can literally go on every single forum of every single marketplace, freelancing, or professional service platform and you'll find it most similar. The reason? We, good humans, are most vocal when something goes south (Yelp anyone?) So if there are any newbies reading through the posts and finding yourself fearing for the worst, relax. Countless people make a living on Fiverr and the platform is getting better with each passing year. As long as you do your work, communicate well with buyers and the support, and keep a positive mindset (cliche but true), things will be A-okay! And yes, don't forget to share your happy, positive experiences too! Note: I'm not invalidating any of those negative posts, but just stating how there are plenty of positives too that we should be focusing on.
  10. It could be a few things... 1: Perhaps your service is very niche without too much search volume. You can check your impressions on the "gig performance" section under "active gigs". 2: Check your order completion, delivery and response rates to see if they're top notch 3: How are your competitors doing? If they're lagging behind too, then you know it's probably a demand-disruption issue. 4: Try getting Fiverr Plus for a month and see if an exec can troubleshoot this for you. Lastly, never lose hope. All will be well!
  11. Since it's a new ad algorithm, it'll take a while before Promoted Gigs gets better. I remember how horrible Facebook ads was when it started.
  12. I don’t quite understand the question. Did you get demoted?
