After 18 months on Fiverr I’m tired. Fiverr was great for building my portfolio and I’m grateful for that and I’ll always recommend it to Buyers and new Sellers! However, it’s come to the point where the bad has outweighed the good where I’m concerned.
I’m tired of giving away my work to people who have no idea the value they’re getting and haggle over price.
I’m tired of not being able to communicate properly with clients on artistic projects through a limited communication system.
I’m tired of Buyers not bothering to read my gig and ordering my artistic work like they’re ordering a food blender online.
I’m tired of Buyers who expect me to read their mind.
I’m tired of working with Buyers who aren’t familiar with my industry.
I’m tired of feeling guilty for being the person who drives down the market value of my profession.

I’m tired of Buyers with unrealistic expectations.
I’m tired of fearing Buyers will ruin me with a poor review.
I’m tired of technical glitches.
I’m tired of watching a handful of Sellers get all the work.
I’m tired of trying for the TS status that’s more like the Holy Grail.
I"m tired of struggling to get better page rank.
I’m tired of perverts contacting me.
I’m tired of resellers playing me.
I’m tired of fearing my gig/account being hacked.
I’m tired of Buyers wanting me to do illegal and unethical things.
I’m tired of the business-culture divide that exists between me and Buyers not from my country.
I’m tired of fearing a chargeback.
I’m tired of giving up 20% and getting very little in return.
I’m tired of being treated like an employee of Fiverr by Buyers who fail to understand I’m an independent contractor.

I’m tired of fearing an arbitrary removal of my gig by CS.
