  1. Don't do this. Fiverr considers it abuse of the delivery feature and you can be penalised or even banned. Only use the delivery box for actual deliveries. Best solution is to contact CS and have them cancel the order without it impacting your stats.
  2. Have you ever heard the phrase "correlation does not equal causation" ? What it means is that just because two things happen at the same time, it does not mean that one caused another. Maybe one of your previous customers left a private review that wasn't favourable, maybe some seasonality effect impacted your niche? Maybe it was the reverse... perhaps someone new signed up and did such great work that they've risen in the ranks. Of course... it could just be that your video has put off customers from clicking on your gig. You can verify that by just removing the video and seeing if your gig climbs again
  3. Colour theory is interesting, but can be challenging in an international market. To different cultures, different colours can mean different things (for example in some parts of asia white is the colour of death, whereas in europe black is the colour of death).
  4. Its not unusual for scammers to attack new sellers. I always say if it looks like sh*t and it smells like sh*t it's probably sh*t! Use the tools at your disposal to ensure you don't get ripped off. Do a single letter trial with the buyer to see if they are happy with your work (better to find out after one letter than 200!). Then use milestones for delivery or split the gig into smaller mini-gigs so you can get paid as you go instead of in one big chunk. Finally, make sure you watermark EVERY sample you send so that they cannot just take your work, cancel the order and run for the hills.
  5. To be fair, It only takes one order to get your business moving on Fiverr. You complete an order, you get a review and now Fiverr has an incentive to send you some traffic and rank you above all the pople with zero reviews. Sure it's going to be a lot of work and you're not going to make any profit but if you don't currently have any orders at all, it might be enough to get you kickstarted on the platform.
  6. 1. meh 2. Don't waste your time unless you have a huge audience of interested parties 3. Utter tosh. There is no relationship between forum and sales 4. Sure and pray to the flying spaghetti monster as well. 5. If you've lost hope, Fiverr is the least of your concerns. See a therapist instead.
  7. Yup, just the first contact (and no, you don't need to have the last word)
  8. Question for you... how do you communicate with your sellers? Are you super demanding? Ask question after question after question? As a seller it can be suuuuper frustrating having to deal with this without a commitment of a sale, sometimes it can feel like you're just trying to pick our brains with no intention of buying anything.
  9. Yes. Unsolicited messages to buyers (or anyone on the platform) is forbidden.
  10. This forum isn't Fiverr technical support. You have to contact Fiverr directly. Nobody on this forum (apart from that one PM trying to convince everyone to use promoted gigs) is from Fiverr.
  11. Not that it makes any damn difference. My gig has zero revisions. ZERO. I still get revision requests (usually from customers demanding something that isn't even a part of my gig). The worst part is that I can't do anything about it... I have to deliver something, even if there is nothing to deliver. If I deliver the same thing Fiverr gives me a paddlin. If I refuse, the order just sits there FOREVER pending revision.
  12. Don't worry, it's easy! Step 1: Create a gig Step 2: Wait Step 3: ????? Step 4: Profit!!
  13. I think when you can throw around 12 million you can probably afford to move inland if the water levels rise 😄
  14. I tried them, didn't work for me. When I stopped Fiverr decided they didn't want to be friends and killed my business for about 4 months.
  15. Seeing this makes me glad to live in the Netherlands, all I have to fear is the eventual rising of the sea and the whole country being consumed by the ocean. 😳
  16. So I've been doing this Fiverr thing for about a year now (not full time, just as a little side hustle). Here's three things I learnt that will help you win Fiverr! Posting on the forum constantly will do exactly diddly squat to help your growth on Fiverr. It just ruins the forum SO STOP IT Being online 24/7 will do nothing but make you hallucinate Be patient. If you're in a popular niche (writing, voice over, logos, web dev) it might take a while to get your first order, wait it out or make your gig more specific so that you aren't competing with everyone and his pet cat.
  17. What do you mean by "optimizing my gig". Exactly what changes did you make?
  18. WHY WOULD YOU DO THAT?? You pay Fiverr to bring business TO YOU. They take a cut of your income in exchange for that. Why would you pay someone to send traffic to Fiverr so they can take a cut of your money? If you're going to pay to promote yourself, set up your own website and send people directly to that and keep all of the profit to yourself!
  19. I'm looking forward to your next post entitled "complete 22th order". Seriously though... you really don't need to post on the forum EVERY time you finish an order.
  20. "Learn communicate english". I don't mean to be rude but maybe you should take your own advice before offering it to others. I'm not a writer but generally this would be written "Learn how to communicate well in English".
  21. I still have my full time job which pays considerably more than Fiverr. I also have a wife and three kids to support so after paying to support the family (and we save a lot of money too) there is rarely much left in the piggy bank to do the things I want to do. Which is why I joined Fiverr! Now I have more than enough money to make my tiny little personal dreams happen (recently bought a PS5 and some other tech stuff). I only make a few hundred dollars a month (usually around $500) but it's more than enough to pay for a few games or some little treats for my wife and kids that normally I would have had to say no too. Just makes everyone a little more cheery.
  22. So you'll notice that you lost your ability to promote gigs because "you failed to meet quality critera" (it says this right on the page if you hover over the little ❓icon. Of course, Fiver won't tell us what they are and since many others have recieved this despite having positive public reviews and high completion rates, I believe that this is tied to the private reviews that buyers get after the public review process is completed. Nothing you can do accept wait for another order to come in and hope that customer leaves you a positive review (in my experience, this can take between 30 and 90 days_.
  23. Did you deliver work that was incomplete?
  24. Enjoy it while it lasts... some nightmare of a human will be along shortly to ruin that for you.
