4 Star review on my first order

I have just completed very first order. The buyer was very happy ,he mentioned it through inbox. Even he put a very good comment on the review though he gave 4 stars to me. Now I can’t send any buyer requests. Never felt so demotivated as I have produced everything buyer asked even I gave him extras. Please give me some suggestions how can I stand up from this situation. :slight_smile:

Sorry to hear that brother @sahed_mahmud. But as buyer already gave you 4 start so now there is no way to change it anymore. As you said you can’t able to send buyer request anymore, In that point i can only suggest you one thing is to do marketing of your gigs. it can help you to get more orders and then when you are above 4.5 star then you can again send buyer requests. So keep it up and best of luck.

Yeah, that is kinda odd. If you look at other reputable marketplaces, on average products/services have 3.5-4.5 stars total rating. And that is pretty good.

:star: = Worthless
:star: :star: = Bad, but not the worst
:star: :star: :star: = Average
:star: :star: :star: :star: = Great
:star: :star: :star: :star: :star: = Perfect

So Fiverr’s 4.7 average rating requirement to be accepted as a full seller without losing levels or features is pretty ridiculous. Especially when considering that many buyers don’t understand the rating system from what I have read here on the Forum. So many sellers get few stars, but a very praising feedback.

So in my opinion 4 stars should be the minimum requirement. 4 stars means your service is great! So you should be happy, and ignore if Fiverr thinks it’s not a good review. There will be plenty more reviews, and most will be 5 stars. :slightly_smiling_face: Just keep up the good work!

And a common mistake some new sellers make is they contact the buyer and ask about why they gave a specific review. Never do that, as it’s not allowed.
