# Figuring Out Your Rating Percentage

#1

This post was created by summarizing a group of other posts on this subject for people who are trying to figure out how they arrived at a certain rating percentage or how to get up to a certain percentage.

This is a question of math.

The stars assigned to new reviews you get is a variable. So, you could use these other variables to try and come up with a formula to work it out:

Your current rating (say to 2 decimal places). (i.e. Assume your current rating is 89% and you want to raise it @ 1% to 90%.)
The number of ratings you have
The actual weight that Fiverr applies to each star which is roughly estimated below.

5 stars is 100%
4.5 stars is 90%
4 stars is 80%
3.5 stars is 70%
3 stars is 60%
2.5 is 50%
2 is 40%
1.5 is 30%
and 1 star is 20%

Someone else worked out a hypothetical sample and if theirs was right, it goes like this:

Seller A has:

25 rated sales overall.
18 “5 star” = 1800
3 “4.5 star” = 270
2 “4 star” = 160
2 “3 star” = 120

=2350/25

=94% rating
