They haven’t been transparent I believe in how they operate. Sorry but the proof is here. I find it hard they would not want o help us either but it looks like they are offering more buyer requests to people with better rankings, giving them more business than the smaller fiverr sellers. I guess they feel like theres more of a chance for profit if they give sellers with higher ranking the buyer requests.
There’s absolutely no way this can be a coincidence. I joined fiverr and everything was great until changes were made at the beginning of the year. Since then I dropped levels because of me not reaching a certain rank by a certain time and over time I got down to level zero or whatever you may call it. and when that happened I have no buyer requests. I then sent an email after a few months of wonder what was going on and they tried to tell me different reasons on why it’s like that…one being that buyer requests expire after 10 sellers opt in tho the request…which is a lie because buyer requests have over 20 sellers applying (it shows how many sellers replied on each request) I see requests now because I made a sale recently and magically became a level 1 seller after my complaint. Transparency doesn’t seem to be something they’re into but the proof is here…I’m disappointed since ive done pretty well for the services I offer and fiver has made a good amount from my specific niche so why would they do this to their loyal sellers? it’s disgusting and I’m extremely put off. so what I get out of them doing this is that they want to make sales as quick as possible so they send the buyer requests to the sellers most with the highest ranks in assuming the buyers will trust them more and are more opt to making an order. others who aren’t ranked a level have to try a drive business to the website by promoting outside of fiverr. makes sense and extremely unfair. profit monsters.
