  1. Thank you very much for your input. Yes, that works as well. I wasn't aware of the drop-down selection box next to the Send button because it is so unsuspicious. This is really nice to know and it tells us about the two special keys: Shift+ENTER always creates a new line and Ctrl+ENTER always sends the message.
  2. Thank you VERY much! That was what I have been looking for. Such a great help!
  3. Hi everyone! Whenever I am typing an answer to an inbox message, I am wondering how to advance to a new line, or in other words, how to introduce a new paragraph. Surprisingly, that works just fine in the message boxes on an order page. There, you just hit the ENTER key to get to a new paragraph. In the inbox that doesn't work. I have tried Ctrl-ENTER, Alt-ENTER, and the like -- nothing seems to work. My usual workaround is to type the message in a text editor and then cut-and-paste it into the message field of the inbox. But that is a nuisance. Has anybody found a better way to enter multiple paragraphs of text in the inbox?
  4. I certainly will, @vickieito! Thanks for all of your experiments. This feature looks like a mystery to me as well. Although I have excellent reviews on all of my gigs, the customer review box has not shown up yet. I contacted Fiverr support and just got back some totally irrelevant gibberish about when a gig goes online -- probably generated by an AI bot that didn't understand the question. I will keep you guys posted on what I find.
  5. Hi all! You certainly have all seen it before: Some gig pages have just below the gallery pictures a running marquee that is titled "What people loved about this seller". There, the latest reviews from customers are displayed. Although I have been searching really hard where to activate that feature in a gig, I could not find it so far. Does anybody have an idea of where to switch that on? Or is this an automatic feature that is displayed under certain conditions?
  6. In the top menu go to the MORE item. The first sub-item in the drop down menu is Buyer Requests. So far so easy. BUT... Being a new sellers, we don't see buyer requests permanently, we see them only for a limited time. At least that's what I heard. So don't be surprised if the list of buyer requests is empty most of the time. And also... The buyer requests I have seen so far were either scams or from buyers trying to get a task done super cheap. So far I have not seen a single buyer request that was taken to be serious. But I have been looking only over a couple weeks, being new here myself. In summary, when some people are suggesting to answer 10 buyer requests per day, that does not make any sense to me. Hope this helps, even if it sounds discouraging. And, by the way, if you are looking to get in your first order: There are better ways to do that instead of looking out for buyer requests. The one big mistake I made was to assume that Fiverr would do the advertising for me. Well, for a 20% share in the revenue one might assume that they did. But look at it this way: With literally thousands of others also presenting their gigs on the same pages, your chances as a new seller to land a gig are almost zero. So, the advertising part of Fiverr's service is almost nil. What they take the 20% for is the handling of the order and giving you an international platform on which buyers can place their order with you. The advertising you have to do yourself! I am exploring various ways of advertising myself at this time, social media, a well designed website, etc.. But this seems to be the key to success: Do your own advertising! If your customers are mostly local, you might even be better off directing them in your advertisement to your website directly, i.e. without an involvement of Fiverr. If you deal with international customers, the 20% charge on revenue might be worth it, though. Just my 2 cents...
