  1. Even if it is from Fiverr, why would it be password protected with our SSN? I’ve gotten a few 1099s this week and I’ve never had any password protected lol. Sounds fishy to me.
  2. As long as the order was delivered before the timer hit zero, you’ll be okay. It doesn’t actually count as late.
  3. Orders can stay in revision indefinitely, so there is no time limit for them. If the seller is refusing to cancel, you can contact Customer Support to have them cancel the order for you.
  4. Better yet are the ones that demand a “professional” write a 200,000 word novel for $5. 😂
  5. That’s not true at all. As long as she doesn’t share her own personal information, she won’t receive a warning. There’s absolutely no need to cancel the order. Like @imagination7413 said, just quote TOS to them and let them know that you will only communicate on Fiverr.
  6. For any seller new to the platform, here is another example of what NOT to do. This is a little worse than just receiving and sending random spam. Honestly. :roll_eyes:
  7. My boyfriend absolutely loves pineapple and pepperoni 😂
  8. Yeah, I have a quick response that I send to them. Something along the lines of “stop spamming me” and “you’re probably going to get a warning.” :rofl: But I agree, we shouldn’t have to respond if we block or report them. I actually did have someone send me a sample of their work. This is a gem from a few months ago. It will probably always be my favorite. This is only a partial sample of what I was sent. The rest was pretty much the same.
  9. image1206×586 112 KBI mean, really? Come on. :roll_eyes: To anyone that thinks spamming sellers and begging for work is the quick way to get orders, your Fiverr “career” is going to be a short one. At least I caught this message before logging off for the day. I don’t need my response time getting any longer than it is. 😂
  10. Apparently :rofl: There’s always going to be people who use Buyer Requests, but you have to be mindful about the offers you respond to. You’re either going to find the buyers/cheapskates/scammers who want, for example, a 30,000-word e-book written for $5, or new buyers who have no idea how the platform works and are willing to pay full price. As long as your responses are thoughtful and unique to each buyer, you have a better chance of getting selected. I’ve had numerous buyers accept my offer simply because I was the only one who actually mentioned key details from their requests. Personally, I feel that the buyer’s name should remain hidden until the buyer either messages the seller or accepts the offer.
  11. Like @marinapomorac said, you should report him. And it’s not only you. When using the desktop app, sellers are able to see the name of the buyer after they have sent an offer (I suppose to make it easier to look back if that buyer messages you about the project). On mobile, the names of buyers are already displayed before you send offers. So, it’s not hard for sellers to figure out who you are, but they’re still not allowed to directly message you like that. Is Fiverr probably going to fix that any time soon? Who knows.
  12. There’s not much Fiverr can do about chargebacks (if it does come to that) since the buyer would be going through PayPal or their credit card company to flag the purchases as “fraud” and get their money back. In that case, both you and Fiverr lose the money. I’ve heard that, in some cases, Fiverr will partially compensate orders cancelled this way. Not always though. Just keep rejecting any request to cancel until CS responds. The orders aren’t late (even though it might say so on the order itself), so the buyer can’t cancel on their own. I hope everything works out for you.
  13. I’m a school bus driver and (when school starts up next week) we are requiring students to wear masks on the bus and have their temperatures checked before they get on. There have been a few people in my town who have died of it, but no one I know personally has been infected. I wear my mask when I go out and try to limit where I go (grocery store mostly) as things are getting worse here. It’s just crazy. I hope that if I do get it I can get over it on my own because I can’t afford to go to the hospital for it. (I live in the United States.)
  14. It really is. Estimates say it should be back up Saturday. I guess the storm knocked out internet for around 300,000 people Monday and they just restored internet to like 100,000 people yesterday. I just wasn’t one of them. 😂
