Buyers requests full of sellers offers


#1

Hi good evening/morning

So I check out the buyers requests section every now and then since I’ve not got any requests yet :confused:
But anyways , I find a lot of sellers posting their services for money and they get buyers.

So is this legit ? can I do it too ? if not ,aren’t these offers supposed to be removed or something ?

cheers,

Dear Za:

If you search the forum you’ll find this issue has been discussed many times.

Here are some articles with more information about effective ways to handle Buyer Requests:


And here are the Fiverr Terms of Service:

To sum up, no, Sellers posting their services via Buyer Requests is not legit, and it’s not something you should do if you want to build a reputation on Fiverr for honesty and integrity.

Good luck,
Blaise

They are not getting buyers. They are getting a bunch of people who don’t understand basic English sending them offers to do the work. Say I create a seller request stating I will do Photoshop editing for 5$. Some sick person who only thinks English is a person(Johnny English) and not a language, will quickly click on send offer, send his offer to do the same job. Boom, two monkeys on a tree.

I am so tired of seeing all the advertising taking place in the Buyer Requests section. Those of us who are working do not want to see advertising. We are sellers intent on finding a request that we can bid on. May I suggest a reporting system similar to reporting buyers who propose an inappropriate transaction.
