I’m setting this up as I’m going to inbox some other TRS/popular sellers in the next week with this question. Now, new sellers have a familiar problem of not being noticed/no social proof/no ordering. That’s normal and fine (if annoying).
My interest lies in tried and tested sellers who have been here for a while, have great reviews but for some reason, sales suck lately. This is a little more worrying as an overall decline in sales points towards the platform as failing buyers (who simply don’t come back–you can see the complaints on the forum and decide whether they are correct or just being pissy, but they ain’t returning…)
Combine this with the new processing fee–nobody had an issue with the old system (in the main), the new system was… not executed very well imho–and you can see why buyers might switch to a competitor site, the main one having increased its fees to match Fiverr’s, pretty much. Does UW know something we don’t?
That’s my potted thoughts on the subject. I’ll leave this in conversations as I have no idea where this topic should be appropriately plopped…but yeah, I’m interested in hearing what you think.
So: are your sales declining, why do you think they are, and what would you do to solve this issue? Please answer this remembering that it’s a broad church and so it requires broad answers.
