Buyers should be aware of what’s really going on here on fiverr. It may be five bucks but there’s a lot of favoritism among many sellers who adhere to fiverr even if those sellers are unjustly charging for a service that is completely fake without the buyer knowing.
Gig descriptions are vastly exaggerated and the buyer must know this before they buy. Here are some simply tips for the buy to get to know the seller before they buy and at least build some trust.
- Send a message to the seller and ask some questions. Wait and see how long it takes to reply. If it takes more than a day, forget about this seller. Good communication means a fast reply.
- Confirm information in the gig - about what you will get even if it’s listed.
- If you order, and receive what you are supposed to, don’t leave feedback immediately, wait, just in case you are not happy afterwords. You can’t change the feedback that you leave.
- With so called SEO services, it could take weeks or months to see a result if at all. We believe most seo services on fiverr are simply fake.
We’ve tested many sellers in different categories and found a low percentage actually return your messages. Not sure why they are on fiverr.
We’ve been doing a lot of testing on fiverr specifically as we are in the process of developing a tv show through my production company showing the problems with micro job selling. Buyer Beware.
