Confused about a Course?

I recently took a course about selling on Fiverr from a top-selling author on Udemy and he suggested to use below script while delivering orders

Here is the script:
:point_down: :point_down:
Thank you for your order,

Your order is attached.

If you have questions in the future, feel welcome to reach out, and I’ll be happy to help.

If you found this gig helpful, please consider leaving feedback on it on Fiverr. That really helps me.

Also, let me know what additional business challenges you are currently still facing. I may be able to suggest additional gigs

Thank you for your order,

ps - if you are happy with the gig, please consider leaving a tip since sellers on Fiverr don’t make much.

Oh, so we finally found the ‘origins’ for some of the bad advice going around.

It’s a great thing you were able to pick up on it instead of just blindly following one’s advice.

Asking for feedback was a gray area, at least for me, but now knowing that buyers are reminded to leave a feedback and Fiverr’s policy to give out warnings at the sheer mention of the words review/feedback.

Do yourself a favor and don’t ask for a review. If your buyers are inclined to leave a review, they will do so.

Asking for a tip it’s straight up rude, and I personally find it disgusting behavior, specially given the reason. Don’t think you’re making enough? Raise your prices.

Given this little script he’s handing out to people I’d seriously reconsider any other advice he might have given in this course.

This course maker is obviously dodgy and giving terrible advice, but do you know for sure that it’s not allowed to even hint at a feedback? From my understanding of what I’ve been able to find. It’s asking for a ‘5 star’ or soliciting a positive review in response for a benefit that’s the problem. This is what I could find from the guidelines:

“It is against Fiverr’s policies for sellers to solicit feedback from Buyers in exchange for refunds, discounts, upgrades or any other type of additional benefit.”

Note that it says in exchange for. Is there any other place that you’re quoting from where it specifically says you’re not supposed to ask at all? Thanks!

As I said it is a gray area and for a while I used to ask for them too. This is what I would use towards the end of my delivery message:

If you find everything to be the way you expected you can just mark this order as complete.

If you could also leave a review that’d be greatly appreciated.

For me there’s nothing wrong with it, but since Fiverr already remind them to leave a review, there’s no point for me to also ask for it, and there’s been instances of other sellers mentioning getting in trouble for asking for a review (even if within the guidelines) and to close the order, so I thought it was just easier to remove those 2 lines from my delivery message.

I’m not sure when exactly I removed those 2 lines, but my % of rated order has pretty much remained the same, so my conclusion was that asking for it made no difference whatsoever.

It is NOT allowed to ask for feedback AT ALL. See these threads containing responses from Customer Support:


I am a frequent buyer on Fiverr, and to be honest, I think it is annoying to get asked to leave feedback by sellers. I already get asked two times (three times if you count the “private feedback.” I know it is not the same, but I still hate it). I know the ability to give reviews exists, and so does every buyer who accepts a delivery. There is no reason to remind a buyer to leave feedback. They will do it if they want to.
