Does fiverr staff buy Gigs?

When I started fiverr back in 2012, I got a few orders that were, well, kinda strange.

I wondered if the fiverr staff were testing my abilities. It all went very well and I apparently impressed those buyers. I’m thankful for those “strange orders” because after that, orders just kept coming.

Fast forward to 2016 and orders are a lot less, but of course the site has grown, my enthusiasm and patients have diminished a little, so that is expected.

Has anyone else ever had the feeling they were being “tested” by the fiverr staff? :slight_smile:

No, they can just look at your orders from real buyers any time they want to without
spending any money.

Lately I’ve gotten about 5 orders from people asking me to contact them outside of fiverr.

So you thought the 5 orders from people asking you to contact them outside of fiverr might have been a test?

Not really.
