  1. Hello friends.I dont know why fiverr won’t promote me to Top Rated even after meeting up with requirents. Any reason?
  2. Its a business principle! Saddly, that is the reality of things. I have been served the same menu too and had to swallow it and move on. Thanks for your contribution!
  3. Yes, CS cares about the order because customer is always right! Its only annoying when some dubious buyers take advantage of it. Thanks for sharing your thought!
  4. This is not true. Fiverr terms of service are clear - when a service is provided as agreed, quality of delivery is not grounds for cancelation. Otherwise, I could hire whomever I want for whatever I want and just get a refund claiming “I didn’t like it”. That’s absurd. I’ve had this happen in the past, some “smart” buyers trying to get away with it. Didn’t work. I refused cancelation, and CS sided with me. What you said is correct, but different sellers with different experiences. However, from my interactions with sellers, the pendulum always swing in the direction of the buyer. This protection is enough for any buyer who has no ulterior motive to place order after discussing with seller without thinking he would deliver a poor job. Thanks for sharing your experience.
  5. Fiverr is one of the largest job sites on earth. In such a huge market, there will be good and bad people. Therefore, it’s essential to be careful with who you work with. Freelancers are business people earning a living, helping buyers meet their project needs. Fiverr must have anticipated that people would try to game the system and has put in place Terms Of Service (TOS) to keep buyers and sellers in check. However, for some people, rules don’t matter. They would do everything to take advantage of any loophole to cheat others. After five years of working on Fiverr, I have observed three key areas some buyers take advantage of sellers for a scam. If you are a new seller on the platform, here below are four red flags to avoid being scammed on Fiverr. Promising a 5-star rating Any buyer who talked you into accepting a job at his dictated price on the promise of 5-star and an excellent review is dubious! In the first place, influencing the rating system is against the Fiverr TOS. But in any case, you should not accept a job because of a 5-star promise. Promising more jobs Are you kidding? Do you need the guru to tell you that only a quality job can guarantee you more jobs? Now, the buyer who doesn’t want to pay you the right amount would push the bait of more jobs. Please don’t fall for it! A buyer should deal with you on the quality of service you render, not on the assurance of more jobs. Threatening to report you to Fiverr if you don’t accept his offer I have seen this quite a lot! Some would even boast Fiverr gig is $5 flat! Well, I know that when there is a dispute between buyer and seller, it’s mostly in favor of the buyer; this has made some dubious buyers use it against inexperienced sellers to get cheap jobs from the seller. As long as you follow Fiverr TOS, fear not! Asking for a test job I think Fiverr has secured both buyers’ and sellers’ interests in any transaction. Whether a seller likes it or not, when a buyer is not satisfied, they can get a refund. So where is test job coming from? The Truth is the dubious buyers use this method to get a professional job done without paying for it. Imagine a buyer who needs an article written; he contacted the first seller to write a test on a given topic. After that, he moved to another proof-reader to edit the content as a test. He got his job done by moving from one seller to the other. Never accept a test job from any prospective client. If they want to work with you, let the order be placed and deal with it. Working on Fiverr is cool, and it has been my primary source of income for the past years. But, at different times, I have been scammed because I didn’t know how things work! Therefore you need to understand how the system works. As a seller, this is your job. Treat it as a business and learn how to survive on the platform. I hope this helps! Thanks for reading.
  6. I love this this! Seriously, one can’t stretch the importance of buyer-seller communication enough. I have had some buyers placed order only to return with cancellation. By following this tip, buyers can avoid needless dispute and everyone is happy.
  7. Excellent post! I like to add that buyer request should be seen as a lead generation exercise to get the buyer to contact you. You can achieve that by addressing buyer’s pain point.
  8. If you have specific questions, feel free to ask for clarification. Helpful. You are kind. Thank you!
  9. Thanks for the link explaining why gig impressions are dropping and why it doesn’t matter to a gig’s success. From the text, the Jonbaas explained that impression only shows the presence of a gig in a list of 48 other gigs that the page was refreshed. He advanced three reasons a gig might get an impression and urged that one be worried if a gig isn’t getting a click instead of troubling over impression. My question is, can a gig that didnt come up at all get clicked? Definitely no! That is why those who worried about impression are on point. Without a gig being among those 48 other gigs, there is no chance for a click! While one makes efforts to improve the gig look, catchy title, description and image, there is need to be among the 48 other gigs to get a chance for a click, which is where impression comes in. How can I get my gig to be among those 48 other gigs? That is where I need help! Thanks again.
  10. Please read rule 6. What do you mean by “in red”? Please revisit (IMG) point 2 and update your video, (PPD) point 1, (FAQ) points 1 and 5, (PRF) points 1 through 6, and the (CPM) section. When overall gig statistics (impressions, clicks and conversion) hit all time low, the indicator shows red downward arrows. If its increasing, the indicator is green in color.
  11. I hope this post is in order. I am a level two seller and I have a five year old account with over 1500 sales. But since March of 2020, my gigs performances have been sinking. I have read series of suggestions and purported solutions to gigs in crisis, but nothing has worked. At a point, someone suggested fiverr may have removed my gig from search engine (nothing you wont hear when you are in trouble; lol), I contacted CS and I was assured nothing of sort happened. I also followed the CS suggestions on possible solution, but right now, my gigs stats are all in RED! Please see the gigs here and help me if you can, thanks in advance! https://www.fiverr.com/share/oWoE5V https://www.fiverr.com/share/5bdkWz https://www.fiverr.com/share/3ewZBA https://www.fiverr.com/share/WbVY47 https://www.fiverr.com/share/XXWjGe https://www.fiverr.com/share/NWb4va https://www.fiverr.com/share/71wkRx
  12. Why would you want to block a buyer; if you have issue with them why not resolve it. This is business, a disagreement today can become cordial relationship tomorrow if you manage your differences well. my 2 cent!
  13. As much as I want to agree that its not fair to influence rating and feedback on fiverr, some things may need to be put right. first, buyer should understand the rating system and know that getting less than 5 stars is not a bad thing. But the thinking of most buyers is when its less than 5, its bad. Secondly, some buyers are in a rush to apply the big stick on their sellers. I have said in other post that the relationship between a buyer and a seller is that of cooperation to get the best out of the system, but some buyers are in a hurry to leave bad rating and feedback instead of working with the seller to get a nice job. The question is, if the seller is your employee, would you not train him/her in the way you want them to handle your job? But rather, some buyers just want to hit it hard! Buyer and seller must find a common ground to cooperate with one another and be fair in the rating and feedback system, otherwise it may mislead other buyers. If a buyer gives their rating and feedback without careful consideration to reflect the real issue, a seller can protest, in such instance a buyer may decide to review their earlier rating and feedback to reflect the true position of things. For me rating and feedback is not a punitive action, it is there to guide people to the right seller, so lets do it with caution and be humble enough to adjust things to reflect the true position of things.
