Buyer messaging me in OoO mode

Anyone got a clue how to respond to a buyer who’s in Out of Office mode? They’re also a seller, but I can’t message them back due to their OoO mode.


Hello, Ducky, :duck:

I got a message like that a week or so back. CS said there was nothing I could do until they got back from OOO.

Yeesh, kinda what I thought. Oh well, they’ve kinda been off and on with communication regardless.


I think OoO needs to be updated/evaluated, in my opinion, the current OoO system is difficult for contributors, especially if the customer does not notice that in the beginning. And the could trigger contributors to make somethings inappropriate

Bad idea. Contact outside of Fiverr is against ToS.

Is this new? I’ve always been able to receive messages while in OoO mode.

It appears so. I just plain out cannot mesage them.

I could not reply to an OOO person just last week either.

I’m hoping that’s because they’ve unticked the “allow new buyers/sellers to contact me” box. I did check last time I was OoO if I was still appearing in searches and I wasn’t. That wasn’t always the case. I need to use OoO often. A delivery time extension is probably the best way to go from now on.

Yeah, the issue is they started messaging me in this mode…

I hope this doesn’t b*gger up response rate for people.


CS told me it would not mess with our response rate.


Seems like I faced something like this today!!!
