Cell Phone Alerts


#1

I don’t know if this has been suggested before, but I would like to have the ability to have text message alerts sent to my cell phone everytime I get a new order or a message.



I usually check fiverr everyday, but I don’t get orders all that often all the time and sometimes I won’t check for a long while. Then I will check again later in the day and find out someone had messaged me earlier asking if I could do something within a few hours! If I had known they messaged me I could have gotten it done, but because I wasn’t checking my fiverr page every 5 minutes I missed it and then it’s too late to get the order.



If I had a text message alert I could respond immediately to any orders or messages I get at any time. It would really help me to respond right away to things and I could have gotten a few more orders if I had this, or gotten some orders done a lot faster.

no one else wants cell phone alerts… i would even go for a fiverr app on my phone too as long as it alerts me when people order or message me.

I agree to your suggestion. As anyone post message or order to our page, if we get notifications on our cell phone than it will be great :slight_smile: Both for fiverr and for sellers :slight_smile:

There did once used to be an iPhone app called Fiverr Alerts. Not sure what happened to it ?

I get Alerts by email to my phone anytime I get an order or a message. Works just fine for me

arnevb said: You can always make a separate email for Fiverr and just download an application that gives you a notification when you have a new mail


Thats what I did! :)

my phone never alerts me when I get a new email. what app do you have that does that? A lot of times my apps also don’t alert me to things, or delay in alerting me, so I would very much prefer to get text messages since then I would get them instantly and guaranteed.



I’m also not sure I’d want to change the email that goes with my fiverr just to get the alerts, I usually check that email everyday but I get much more than just fiverr mail there, and having my phone go off every minute doesn’t sound appealing either. But if some reason the app glitches like my other apps and doesnt send me notifications then I won’t even be able to tell by checking my email on the comp like I normally do… since it would be a separate email.

oh but please tell me which email alert app you have so that I can try it out.

With any smartphone, you should be able to get a email notification in the notification bar. My Gmail email platform on my phone definitely does the trick.
