Can I schedule a gig later?

Hi there, I am about to start selling service on Fiverr. I have a question - while creating the gig, can I schedule it to go in public later? I mean, maybe I can’t finish up all the details in one go and I might need to work out for few days on completing a gig. So, can I control it to go public upon the completion of the gig details or it will go public whenever I finish it up at first go.

Please someone tell me. Thanks.

I’ve never noticed a way to permanently SAVE your work as you create/edit a gig. If you don’t continue through the pages to the end and SAVE the entire gig, it won’t be saved for you to go back and continue filling in the information about your gig. So, I believe the answer to your question is ‘no’. After creating a new gig it can take anywhere from a few minutes to 24 hours for it to go ‘live’, so if you’re not ready to sell, it’s probably not a good idea to create it yet.

Once your gig is active, it is possible to SUSPEND it temporarily, but since you don’t know how quickly it passes the editing process and goes ‘live’, it’s possible that someone might make a purchase before you have the chance to do that. Another option is put a long DURATION time up. You can put up to 29 days for gig completion.
