  1. So, I have 529 orders in the last 90 days, and they say I dont have orders enough to have a score? I contacted many times fiverr support that there is something wrong/bugged with my gig and they say it's all good. Lets see if sending this image to them, now they do something. EDIT: In the past 14 days, my gig went from top of first page to the bottom of the last one, I wasn't allowed to promote my gigs anymore and I lost my "REPEAT BUYERS" badge in my gig, all the same time. Contacted support and they said there was nothing wrong. I got no warnings, accordingly with support, also no issues with my gig. They just don't accept my gig may be bugged.
  2. sorry, I meant new gigs. but is pretty simple achieve level 1. If a seller cant do this, I dont believe they deserve be able to promote a gig.
  3. Do you know that Top Rated sellers were new sellers one day, right? Fiverr isnt easy for anybody. Fiverr has so many features to help new sellers that doesn't worth asking for more: 1. Ranking rotation (which was created to give a chance to new and discrete gigs). In the past it was fixed. 2. Recommended and Relevance gigs sort. Which also help new sellers, so the algorithm give a chance to new sellers too. 3. New seller gig sort. The name say everything. 4. Buyers request. Which sellers with a couple of orders can't access. 5. Promoted gigs which allow sellers (including new) to get better exposure. 6. Gig badges (such as rising talent and etc). And many others. I believe instead wanting fiverr to NOT give a help for the top rated and best sellers, you should enjoy what fiverr already gives you. My gig is the best seller all time in a subcategory, and 2 weeks ago it was placed in the last page to give room for new gigs. Is this fair? So please stop and think a little. Use the tools you can reach and do your best. Don't ask for fiverr to obfuscate good sellers. They got their badges/levels/exposure because they've worked hard for this.
  4. I have no idea. My clients also are very happy. I have no idea why this happened
  5. It recently happened with me. A week ago my gigs were from top of first page to the bottom of the last pages. I wasn't able to promote my gigs and I lost my "buyers keep returning" badge. All the same time. I contacted fiverr support and they told there was nothing wrong. Now I'm struggling to get back on top and to get new orders. I just getting my usual clients and there is nothing I can do or fiverr support want to do
  6. same here, and the order isn't even showing in my dashboard. I had this problem many times, but I delivered again or waited and the deliver just worked, but now it's just running and running. Already contacted support, I'm waiting their answer
  7. You cant Rank your gig like you rank a site at google. Rank of fiverr is based in reputation. To get reputation you need to do some sales with goo ratings.
  8. Hey there I often change my gigs duration by the weekend for 3 days delivery, then I change back to 1 day at Mondays. Last time when I did this (today) 2 of my gigs are working fine, and 1 of them went UNDER REVIEW. It’s being 12 hours now and it’s not being shown at search or categories. Does someone else had the same problem? The only change I did was the duration time.
  9. If you want to get any order, anywhere, you must promote your serives/products. Fiverr isn’t easy money. You must promote what you have to offer for your potential buyers and clients.
  10. already reported this and the order. I also blocked him at the end
  11. In theory, you are right. But you know as well as I do that there are still going to be Buyers who don’t pay attention to FAQs, Gig Descriptions, or anything other than what they want. The same goes for Sellers. There will always be Sellers here desperate for a $5 job willing to do anything for it. I sell my gig for $5 because most of the services I do are quick and work for $5, but I clearly let my buyers know that it doesn’t work for all images. If they dont read my gig description then they “don’t want to know”, and this don’t change the fact I advised. My average selling price is $20-$25 nowadays (with a $5 gig) Selling for $5 isn’t desperate if the job is quickly done.
  12. I’ve been working in fiverr since 2014. I’ve seen a lot of different kind of buyer but this one went too far. Recently I had a buyer (which also was a seller, in logo design category), which asked me to trace an image (truck) to vector and add some text. In other words he was asking me to create his logo. He ordered a $5 basic order, PLUS $10 to be delivered in 12 hours. But the image he wanted to get worked, would demand weeks of work and would cost over $400 (he clearly ignored my gig DESCRIPTION, FAQs, and REQUIREMENTS warnings). I explained him this, and said that for only $5 the best I could do was an auto trace, but this process would simplify the image A LOOOOT. Here starts the problem: 1- He said he agree with this auto trace process and that he contracted me to work the image, not te text (which he initially asked in his original request). He said, “i order for truck not for text”. 2- Then I delivered the order, and requested a modification. He said “Thank you, looks nice;) But you forgot to put text in it, because it has to include company’s name.” (observe that the liked the image traced delivery, and then he just wanted the text worked again, really simple process). He even sent me an example, with the fonts and the way he wanted to look, and I did it exactly like he requested. 3- I delivered the truck traced, and the text exactly like he requested. THEN BOOM, he wrote me this: “i am really sorry but my Clint is not satisfied with this quality, i will give you 5$ for your work”. He liked the service I sent him, but he tried to cancel because “his client” didn’t liked, and he wanted to give me only $5. 4- I said to him that I would not refund him, because my deal was with him, not his client, and he said he liked the delivery. 5- He requested dozens of cancellations. Then now he was saying that the wanted to cancel because his team mate didn’t liked it (from his client, now it passed to his team mate) 6- He threatened me that if I wouldn’t cancel this, he would give me 1 star rating. I said him to go on, and it would allow me to give the same rating to him. 7- He tried everything to get refunded: He said he didn’t like (while he said before he liked). He said he would give me a bad rating. He said he would report me. And many other things. 8- He closed the order (without any review), and contacted me INBOX. By inbox messages he kept threatening that he would give me 1 star rating. I dont know why but till now he didn’t gave me a review at all. Moral of the story (for buyers and sellers): 1- If you are a seller, do not accept to get abused by this kind of buyers, which tries everything to get a free work. In my case, he agreed with a cheap process, he liked the cheap process, but then he didn’t like anymore? No, I wont cancel because of this, BUT MAINLY because he didn’t read my gig description and faqs AND requirements, where I clearly explain and warn such situation. 2- If you are a buyer, DO NOT TRY TO TAKE ADVANTAGE FROM SELLERS. We are not slaves to do any kind of work for any price. Just because our gig STARTS from $5, it doesn’t mean we will do every single work for $5. Read the gig descriptions, it exists for one obvious reason. Contact the sellers before ordering if you are not 100% sure your request will work for the package you order, or for your budget. If buyers read gigs descriptions, half of cancellations would be avoided. If they contact sellers before ordering, the other half of cancellations would be avoided.
  13. no, it’s not possible. If you completed the requirements of the original order, and the order got closed, you don’t need to do any more work. All buyers accepted this with the terms of service. you can simply block him if you don’t want to work with him again
  14. Don’t worry about this. I often get such threats. if you see, in your gig it says it STARTS from $10 (it doesn’t say that every work you do will be this price). What I do? First in these cases, when I need to charge extra, I clearly explain to my buyers WHY I need to charge extra. Most of them accept this. Some doesn’t like and curse me. In this last case, I always make sure to have it all explained in my gig DESCRIPTION, FAQs (and even warn about this in my gig REQUIREMENTS), that not every order will work for a basic order. So my suggestion is, keep everything clear in your gig description and faqs. If the buyer doesn’t want to read this, it’s their problem. But ALWAYS try to properly explain why you are charging more than they were expecting.
