I offer writing gigs. I had a mutual cancellation on March 24th because the buyer didn’t read my gig description and was requesting something I don’t offer. This cancellation brought my completion rate down to 96%. No big deal, I thought. However, ever since then, my orders and messages have essentially stopped. I’m getting 1-2 orders every few days (if that), whereas before I was getting around 10 orders a day and numerous messages. I had been making $4k for the last few months steadily, so I quit my full-time job to do Fiverr full-time. Now, I’ve barely made $500 so far this month.
Does anyone know how long my profile will be affected due to this cancellation? Has anyone experienced this before and did your business eventually recover? After how long? I contacted CS about it and they told me that they regularly rotate profiles to give everyone a chance. Not quite sure I’m buying that that’s what’s happening though. Pretty bummed right now, especially since this cancellation wasn’t my fault and I literally depend on this money to pay my bills. Ugh. Advice? Stories? Encouragement? Thank you!
