  1. I’ve been told eventually they plan to add “Custom Offer” Style subscriptions–so us VO sellers may have to wait for that to have it work properly with our unique gig pricing style. it would work I assume as a Max Word count per month recurring subscription, so buyers could order a 5000 word count subscription with whatever extra, like commercial license…then send you scripts throughout the month until they hit that Max. Then you mark the order as complete… BUT you wouldn’t get paid until the delivery is accepted by the buyer. So remember that if you have a need for fast $$$.
  2. Also in addition to above advice–I think a screenshot of the conversation with the username and contact info included is against the forum rules. I’d black out the sensitive content if you really want to include a screenshot, or just remove it at this point. You may get tagged as breaking some rules otherwise. 😉
  3. They do it every few months, always without notifications. I think it was forbidden a while ago. I think it used to be fine if the sellers weren’t offering voice-overs themselves, but those things keep changing. It was even mentioned on the forum that it’s no longer allowed to offer any kind of help with other sellers’ gigs. I’m not sure there’s an official clarification somewhere, though. Really? Even in just an advice capacity? Isn’t that the majority of what people ask about on the forum?
  4. I just discovered a new territory I didn’t know existed thanks to Fiverr! I got an order from the “Cocos (keeling) islands” an Australian external territory. Gotta say, the first thing I did after responding to the order, was look up where the heck it was. Thanks Fiverr, for helping me expand my geographic- and nation-related knowledge! 👍
  5. Often times, buyers leave this blank, or just type a " - " The fields don’t check to make sure actual instructions are filled, so that’s why we want a seller confirmation option, since buyers tend to just be lazy and not follow gig requirement instructions…
  6. Hi there! I just happened to look at the “Community standards” link now on the fiverr homepage Community Standards And I was wondering about a few of these “Do Nots”…like testimonials: I do voiceover and often I get scripts for reading an actual testimonial for a company, that was submitted to them by a real person—they just want a pro recording of it for their website…is that against regulations now? Also, there’s a section banning “Have someone represent you in your gig”…I also have done in the past, orders for other sellers where I do the voiceover for their gig video–again, is that now not allowed? I’m just a little put off by some of these restrictions. Some, to be honest, are obvious and very much appreciated…but these two? I’m scared that I’ll unwittingly violate community standards with such a gray area of Dos and Don’ts. ON A SIDE NOTE: February 2020, Fiverr updated their Terms of Service page. Again. Without notifying any of the users. Please inform the sellers and buyers when you update the Terms of Service so that we can review the changes and make sure we communicate the latest version in circumstances that call for them. It seems obvious, but apparently I have to request that Fiverr does this.
  7. Has anyone invested their Fiverr earnings in actual Fiverr stock? I use Robinhood to trade just a bit and I’m eyeing a new investment I Fiverr lol. I guess technically I would then have a say (albeit a very minuscule one) in Fiverr’s business operations?..just kidding. But seriously, does anyone else reinvest their earnings? If so, have you benefited from doing so? And what platform do you prefer if you do?
  8. I don’t want to get into an ethics argument, but I do have a solution for you @audioboon. Zip the file attachment. Fiverr won’t put it into the live portfolio if it’s not viewable as a preview. Worked for me in the past.
  9. This has been brought up a few times, so a little redundant, but always good to add your voice to the request for a Seller Approval button prior to order start.
  10. Happening again now…and right when I’m uploading deliveries… :roll_eyes:
  11. No surprise here (since I offer Voiceover services with an American accent) that it’s USA, followed by Canada, and I think India is next. I do think that some of my clients claim to by from the USA, but may not actually be in reality…that’s just based on questionable grammar and suspicious use of terms like “Dear” in their messages. Does Fiverr actually vet the buyers at all when they say they’re from a certain country? I highly doubt they’d bother.
  12. @kha1ed that’s not necessarily true, a lot of buyers realize that depending on script length, 2 days is to be expected, especially with the high volume of sales we manage here on fiverr. It may deter some people in a hurry, but as I mention on my FAQs: https://youtu.be/0adGTsKLxBw I do agree with the intro on the video though, that definitely gives people more trust that you are who you say you are.
  13. You get spam from VAs??? I’m so sorry on behalf of all the other serious VAs on Fiverr. I guess some sellers don’t realize this isn’t Voices.com/Voice123 where the talent is expected to bid for the jobs. Seriously, if you’re a voice actor here on fiverr– please remember that your portfolio/gig/talent and customer service are your calling card, and we’re lucky enough to have clients come to us if they like what we advertise. Spamming people for unsolicited work is just as annoying as that person stopping you in the parking lot trying to offer to fix a “problem” on your car for cash on the spot. Why would you ever trust that person? @deanbrightman I’d be happy to chat with you about some of the lessons I’ve learned in the VO category and I agree with @frank_d on the advice he gave and I can expand on that a bit if you’d like to discuss this in PMs.
  14. This is pretty much how I do all my editing…but while recording I of course use proper posture since you can’t project hunched over or slouching…LOL. working700×546 105 KB
  15. There is often an issue with a reverse-charge that the buyer initiates through their payment provider. It looks like it’s done by Customer Support the way it shows up on your alerts, but often it’s just an automated system. I believe the advice on your other thread mentions it, but just ask CS why the cancellation, and they’ll be able to tell you. If it’s a reverse-charge, that’s a violation of TOS on the buyer’s side, so they’ll likely get banned. (I do wish they changed the notification to an alert that it was a reverse-charge instead of customer support, so that it didn’t scare us sellers so badly) If it wasn’t a reverse charge, they’ll still be able to let you know the issue.
