  1. There is absolutely nothing to stop buyers ignoring this - certain buyers will know this is an empty threat and they can still just keep requesting away! Trust me, I've tried this one.
  2. As sellers, there's nothing worse than buyers holding you ransom for your work. When a buyer places an order, the seller will often state the number of revisions allowed for this delivery. However, there is no function to prevent a buyer continually requesting revisions after every single delivery. Although you can ask for further payment from the buyer, or refuse to do further revisions than the quantity of revisions that were stated within the order requirements - there is nothing to stop the buyer ignoring you and continually requesting revisions. The only thing the seller can do in this position, is continually modify the work as many times as the buyer asks, or request cancellation - and we all know how damaging this can be. Not only does this result in vulnerable and stressed sellers, it's also not financially viable for Fiverr. Whilst Fiverr want the buyer to satisfied with the delivery, this situation either forces the seller to spend too much time on one order (leaving less time to complete other orders to a high standard) - or leads to cancellations, which benefits no one. SUGGESTION: once a buyer requests the number of revisions stated in the order, prevent the buyer from selecting 'request revisions'. Instead, allow the seller to either approve/decline the additional revision request, or allow the seller to offer the additional revision at an extra cost. This would not only benefit sellers, but would also generate further income for Fiverr, as they would receive 20% of all additional revision costs. Let me know what you think - and if you've had any similar experiences.
  3. Hey! Just a fun one - who's the most famous buyer/client that you've done an order for? I've done some music videos for a couple big record labels (Defected Records and Armada Records), some famous DJs (Sam Divine and Roberto Surace) and American rapper Riff Raff! Let me know yours!
  4. Amazing! I actually didn't know this was a thing, I'll check this out!! Thanks very. much 😃
  5. Here's a suggestion! I'd like to propose adding temporary discounts/offers on Gigs; allowing sellers to offer a chosen percentage discount (e.g. 5%) on a Gig for a set period of time (e.g. 1 week). I've always found my sales to be either really high, or really low, usually dependent on the time of the month (e.g. around pay day). Therefore, there are likely to be periods where sellers aren't getting much work. For example, I'm sure that sellers on Fiverr as a whole receive less orders towards the end of the mont, before people typically have their pay day. Therefore, by allowing sellers to offer promotional discounts for a limited time, this would drive more revenue through Fiverr - whilst making a seller's month more consistent. Whilst I'm aware you can simply edit a Gig - I have discovered that this is bad for impressions and this requires a manual change that has to be manually undone. Let me know your thoughts!
  6. As a seller - I totally get this frustration of buyers requesting many revisions, especially when the order scope clearly states '1 revision', but buyers are allowed to request unlimited. I feel like this may discriminate against buyers who may have requested very legitimate revisions, which could potentially be due to the sloppy work of a seller. I absolutely despise the idea of this statistic for sellers, because there is no option to decline revision requests without opening up a resolution centre option - therefore, I think it's a bit hypocritical of me to want it put in for buyers. Also, I really doubt Fiverr will input this, as it would potentially decrease number of sales due to sellers turning down buyers with bad statistics (fair enough). Great suggestion though, very unique!
  7. This is totally OK and is a great idea to pursue, Fiverr has a financial consultation section for Gigs - but of course you want to be totally transparent about everything. In your bio, Fiverr has the option to add your qualifications - and you can select the year that you will graduate. That way, everyone will know you're yet to graduate. Also, within your Gig, you have three photos and a video that you can upload - here you can explain that you're yet to graduate. You can also find tests to complete within Fiverr to prove your legitimacy - and these will then appear on your profile. As you haven't graduated, it would be worth doing this. I can't find any information for the requirements for financial services Gigs - but I'm very sure that they won't require you to be a graduate. If they do, you'll be contacted by customer service and the Gig may be taken down, so it's worth just clarifying this with customer service.
  8. This discussion is so good!! I'm super surprised by the love for Windows OS - coming from someone who is absolutely hooked on Mac, after having Windows for most of my life. So great to hear how everyone is getting on - from using retro computers with relatively week hardware, to i9 processors!
  9. Hi mate - I noticed no one has been able to help with this. Here's my best guess of what is happening: Fiverr previews for Gigs are 550 x 370 pixels, meaning your video has probably been shrunk to those dimensions - which would explain the boxy aspect ratio and low quality. This is unavoidable, unless you deliver in this aspect ratio, but I believe it will look different on different people's computers/browsers.
  10. In my opinion, Mac is a far superior operating system - it's intuitive, fast and just works! I have found that Windows computers age much quicker - even simple things like right clicking often caused my computer to go to 'not responding' mode. Mac is obviously more expensive. However, if you're doing well on Fiverr (I've seen your posts/advice on the forum, so I'm sure you're doing amazing!!) then it's WELL worth the investment. The way I look at it is like - a windows computer only lasted me 4 years and might cost around £500, whereas Macbooks/iMacs can last over 10 years - I bought an iMac for cheaper than my Dell (to replace my Dell), which was made in late 2012 (and it makes my Dell look like a 1900's microcomputer!). Over 10 years, it's actually cheaper to get it - and it made me so much more efficient!
  11. My Dell served me well! I still occasionally use it. I wish you all the best in pursuing a high configuration device. 🙂
