  1. 2 people ask me to contact with their e-mail and become no longer contactable on fiverr. Why they do that ? Commission fee is the only thing that comes in my mind by I feel uneasy about this? Should I respond them via e-mail ? Could it be a type of scam ?
  2. Fiverr included this sweet feature called quick responses which are essentially pre-made messages that you can send to a potential buyer. Fiverr allows you to save quick responses along with a title so that you can select the best response possible for a buyer. Since we are living in the age of AI, bots, and automated responses buyers may think these Fiverr quick responses are impersonal, cold, and robotized. But trust me most of the Fiverr top-rated sellers are using this amazing innovation that Fiverr has added and became successful too. 🏆When you are delivering an order to the buyer Hello thushanxeno Thank you for your order and for providing the necessary instructions to do your project.

  4. Hello! Sorry if I sound like a newbie, it's because I am one and I don't want to be scammed. I had sent an offer for a buyer request to retype a document and I got a message asking me to write them on WhatsApp. The weird thing is, the "person" I messaged on WhatsApp didn't seem to be an actual person. They couldn't answer my questions and just continued with their chatting program. They also asked for my experience but instead I asked if I understood the job correctly, to which they just replied "That's great" and asked me if it's okay to send a paid test article. I clarified what I offer and they just sent the file. No viruses, I opened and it looks legit - the company seems legit, but how do I know if these two people I chatted with are actually affiliated to this company? Turns out it does match to what I'm offering, it's just on a larger scale I guess. Another thing I'm unsure about is that there's a security fee I have to pay and that can only be refunded if I finish the assignment. If it's legit I will be serious about this, but if they're not even from that company I won't get my money back. It's also weird to me that in the PDF file with the information they talk about a demo video that I need to watch first and that someone was supposed to send me, but nobody sent me one. Is that another sign these people are not actually with this company? Also, there are typos in the PDF file. Red flag for me at least. The pay is very good, maybe too good for a first job. And I don't know if that's normal, but the amount of pages on each project I can choose have an even (?) / specific number of pages. 25, 50, 75 and 100. I mean, wouldn't each project have a more random number of pages? Like 23, 48, 78 etc.? It's so calculated. Anyways, I should probably ask them to prove that they're actually part of this company. Other than that, what do you think?
  5. As a seller, we always look for work and opportunities. This is especially true for new sellers. Things don't always go as we'd like. And sometimes we sellers get desperate and there are some buyers who take this advantage. I have worked with really good buyers and person in general, and had bad experience as well. I want to share one such experience. I used to be content writer and came to fiverr on that service. I came across a buyer request with a list of like 10 topics, and I sent an offer. The person responded the next day and asked me about my experience. I told him. Then he said he needs this 10 articles and like 50 more in near future. But since my fiverr profile is new, I needed to earn his trust. And for that, he asked me to write on one of the topics. If he liked it, he'd order for the 10 and later on, for all 50. Me, desperately looking for work, agreed, and wrote the article and sent that. I never got a response from him again. The very next day, when I was going through the buyer requests, I saw the same buyer with a similar buyer request with a list of work. And when I verified the list with the previous one, sure enough, 5/6 were the same topic with a few new ones(the one I wrote on was missing). I texted him asking if he liked my article or not. But he never responded again. My thought on this is, he actually used my article. And there were a few other sellers who did the same as me. Thus the buyer got like half of his work done for free. Now, I am not 100% certain that it was the case, but it appears to be so. My point is, don't work for free under any situation. It's true that the buyers will need to verify your skill. And you will need to earn their trust. Share your past works and similar services that you did for someone else. But don't work for someone you don’t know. If you work for free, not only you are getting scammed, but also you are ruining a potential job either for you or for some else. Be careful and think before you do something no matter how desperate the situation is. Take a look at buyers profile. See the number and frequency of reviews as a buyer. Trust your logics and if there's not enough, trust your guts. Take care!
  6. Hi guys, many buyers ask me to change names, dates or photos in id or other types of documents, I do not do it for professional ethics but I would like to know if there is the possibility to report these buyers to be banned, otherwise they will find sellers who will do the work and these people will be able to scam people who will receive the photoshopped documents.
  7. I have dealt with a person from ******* and would like to make other aware of his scam. Basically he will ask you to do a content writing for him and will provide you a little information regarding that and will try to convince you to do it for him and once he will place his order upon asking for further information he will not return and suddenly will appear when you will deliver a work. In the beginning he will ask you to put your effort and so on and will ask for contact information if you won't provide him than he will provide you an information of himself (Which I ignored) than he will have a point to get you when his work is done he will report your account and fiverr will give a warning or restrict your account because of his behavior and false accusation. I would like to mention one more thing he have scammed several people before like that and upon deliveries he cancelled the orders and he have not only one account but many which he use to scam the freelancers and waste their time and efforts. If you have find some buyer like that please share this in the conversation or have encounter someone like this just please let the others aware of his scam.

  9. I feel like scammed I paid for "organic youtube views" ended up getting bots... What can i do now, the seller is not telling the truth
  10. Hello! So I started Fiverr a few months ago and my first ever client made my currently biggest order of 75$ to set-up game servers. I got all the information that I needed and started on the gig. Now, it was a larger order as there were basically 4 separate orders in one so I spent quite a bit of time on it. The order itself was pretty straight forward and it was related to tech, there was absolutely no subjective work in it. I just needed to set-up something for him and there was nothing about design or anything which could cause me an issue. I gave him the order and kept him updated at every stage, he didn't reply but I still did it. I finished the 5 day order in like 3 days and I sent it to him. After like just over 2 days, he requested for a revision. I was s bit surprised as I had checked everything and it was working perfectly before I sent it to him, but I went and checked it again and like before, it worked properly. There were no issues. I recorded everything and I sent him the video. It clearly showed everything working and its not possible for it to be not clear. KEEP IN MIND HE DID NOT GET ON AND TRY TO CONTACT ME AT ANY POINT AFTER THE GIG REQUIREMENTS. After 2 more days, he asked for another revision. I contacted Fiverr support to which they said that they can't force customers to buy a gig if they are unsatisfied. I explained to them that the order has been delivered and he is already using it, there aren't any issues with my order. I gave him everything he needed. The support agent sent another email saying how this is what freelancing is and the customer isn't satisfied. THE CUSTOMER IS USING WHAT I PROVIDED HIM and this is an extremely objective gig, there is nothing for him to be not satisfied in. I gave the support agent all the proof he needed and I asked him to check my chats with him because the customer wasn't responding to any of my messages. I don't know what to do know as I already spent my time and money on this and Fiverr support is being extremely unhelpful. There is nothing for him to be unhappy about. EDIT: This was a custom order which almost all my orders are, I did not include any revisions as I always check and make sure my gigs are what I described and usually there is no need. Is there anyway I can limit revisions or make it paid revisions to stop future incidents?
  11. Is this possible? 1. Is this possible, fiverr will say and cancel your order by saying the job is not completed before you deliver a order to the buyer? 2. Is this possible, After agreed with buyer to work on certain things and after work 80% completed, the buyer if say he will dont accept the work if we work on these certain things that we agreed before, and fiverr will cancel order for that. 3. Is this possible, when you tell fiverr that he own violating his policies and canceling orders by supporting only Buyers and for that Fiverr will cancel your gig by saying a reasons, that is non-sense. A BIG YES, Aware, Fiverr can do this to anybody. All clarified here, Some days Before, 1st Buyer order with me for SEO work ( to do 250 Links) and send the requirements In INBOX, not in the Order requirements section, so the Order status was "INcomplete" not "Inprogress". But i started the work by inbox requirements. After some days the buyer order a 2nd order for any other work. As well started for 2nd project also. The day after he ordered 2nd project, he ask me about the 1st order status, I said him that all is working fine and all good. The day after one day, He ask me "There is still no links shown. I already stated him before order that links may take upto 1 month to index. But still in 10-12 days he ask me "where is 500 links?". Remember the Order was for 250 links and he asked me in 15 days that where is 500 links. I just said him "Hy, are you joking about 500 links", The order was for 250 links. Then the all things started, He said "I am Rude", "I took all his money and did not completed his work", "Cancel the order". I did not even not delivered the order, How can someone said "I took his money, and did not work as described and agreed (About agreement, i have a different story from 2nd buyer, sure check out after the 1st buyer story, How fiverr don't care about what we agree with buyer) ?" Now all Fiverr users tell me, I not delivered the work that we deliver by using Delivery button after completed the work, and How i took the money of the buyer and did not completed the work, What i did is contacted fiverr support and told him that i still did not delivered the order and the buyer saying after 80% of work that cancel the order, I am Rude because i said the order was for 250 links, not 500 links. And you know what fiverr told me "If the buyer is not satisfied with the work, they have the rights to cancel the order", and I tried all to tell support that i done 80% of the work and did not even deliver. How any buyer will unsatisfied for a undelivered order". You know What Fiverr did, He cancelled the both orders, 1st as well 2nd. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------' Now 2nd buyer at the same time of 1st buyer, Buyer and me discuss all and we agreed on a certain things. And we started the work as per the discussion and agreed with buyer. The order status was "InProgress" and we was working on the order as per the discussion. The order was for 15 days and 10 days passed we was working. In 11th day, when i ask the buyer for the next requirements that we was need to do the rest work 20%, He suddenly say to "He don't want the work as per that we agreed" He wants the work on a certain basis. He openly said "He will not accept delivery if we do as per we was agreed before the order placed. I tried to tell the buyer that how in the middle of work you can change the agreement and saying will not accept the deliver if we provide like that agreed. He told me if you can't, then we can cancel the order, No problem. See, the below screenshort, How he is openly saying, will not accept the delivery if we do that we was agreed. Before ORDER: In the Progress order after 80% work done: I told him we can do manually if need, They saying "Make Sense, Great idea", And then after 80% work done, he saying he will not accept manual work" Is this good?, The buyer is non-sense, told will not accept the delivery if we do as per agreement. I contacted Fiverr for this and told Fiverr support all with Screenshorts. Again You know, What Fiverr told: Hy, Bharat, We Understand some times complication occurs. And we cant force any buyer for any type. Just think if the order is suitable for extra work, otherwise you can cancel the order and forget about all". After some hours, Fiverr support cancel the order by no further notice to me and all my Order complete rate down . May the buyer contact them. Now what you understand, You agreement and your agreed words also no value. Fiverr is just a Buyer supporters. NO Agreed words, No Sellers hard work, No Followed to terms and condition, Only Own there own rule of Fiverr. This is what fiverr is, Just a wrose support and company. Yeah, One more things when i said Fiverr is a worse support and worse service providing. Fiverr cancel my best selling gig by saying a reasons. You want to know the reasons. "Ranking and boosting in Google is a violation of Fiverr guidelines", Yeah, the things is violates Fiverr policy, How?, See, Fiverr has 20+ categories of SEO service that is called Google ranking, Fiverr has 25000+ Sellers who provides Google ranking i.e SEO Service. My gig was running from last 2 years and today they found my gig violates the guidelines. Fiverr just lied me "that another company (Google) flagged for there policy violation, and that violation is Google ranking not allowed". You see, Google is flagged My GIG, Yeah Google not flagged 25000+ sellers who doing Ranking as me. Google flagged me. Let me tell you Google ranking is under the niche of "Digital Marketing<SEO Service". In Fiverr there is special category for digital marketing you can see in Fiverr's menu. But when i provide that digital marketing, it violates Guidelines of Google, Google Flagged my gig and fiverr did. What a beautiful story fiverr told me. Great. At last, Just be aware, and stay safe, This is Fiverr how works. You may be the next. It was my best selling gig,
