I am a seller and I bought a gig on fiverr while the AVAILABLE NOW was on. The seller messaged me saying “I am working on it”, I saw the message on the mobile app and did not reply. Guess what, yes I was blocked from using AVAILABLE NOW feature because I did not reply to that message! ( I did not reply two time before so this was the third time)
My point here, according to the main goal of this feature is"
Blockquote Available Now is a new way to attract buyers by being online, ready to respond to messages, and being able to start orders right away.
So it is only for sellers to respond to buyers. When I (as a seller) buy something on fiverr, I become a buyer, right? So I have right to reply to my seller’s messages or not. This should be independent of my usage of AVAILABLE NOW feature as a seller.
This post is just to inform other sellers, and the admins, that the programming of this feature should be adjusted.
