I am a level 2 seller and have been working on fiverr since 2005. I have had many projects completed and more than 800 positive reviews on my profile. For the las couple of months, I have only got a very few orders and it seems as if the buyers are not interested any more in fiverr or if the market is shifted at once to the new group of sellers. What really is annoying is the new feature thats called “Promoted Gigs”. What it really does is that, it promotes gigs for sellers who actually pays fiverr back what they earn in the name of marketing. This feature does’t care if you have positive reviews, or how much revenue you were generating for fiverr. What fiverr now cares is to promote the seller who pays back fiverr for marketing. Its like fiverr wont let sellers earn a penny and charge after charging 20% commission already. This is a death for the sellers. Every freelance company sinks one day and another market takes its place because of the hardships and rules they make to profit themselves and not the actual people who are earning for them.
I would request fiverr to think about this and change the algorithm to what it was before.
What do you think?
