I read a few articles in the Forum about vacation mode versus pausing, but they are from 2015. Firstly, a few months ago I had to put my gigs on pause because my whole computer went kaputz and I had to build a new one, when I came back I had to start over with my impressions and build up my clientele again. Kinda sucked and I want to avoid that if at all possible. So I’m wondering how much different it’s going to be with vacation mode?
Secondly, in one of the older forums, I read that a seller went away for one week, and that no new buyers are allowed to message you, but that old buyers who have worked with you are able to message you. And that this happened to him on the first day, and he was unable to respond for 7 days so his response rate said 7 days, and that buyer was furious. During part of my vacation I’m going hiking, and I will have absolutely no service on my phone to even open up the Fiverr app. Not to mention I’ll be moving among other things it’s going to be one crazy month. Will previous buyers really be able to message me during vacation mode?
There won’t be any way for me to respond. And if that’s the case, why isn’t there an auto response that gets sent to each message coming in? So that they aren’t left wondering why I’m not replying and it doesn’t ruin response rates.
