To reach level 2 on fiverr, you need 50 orders in 2 months. This puts seller with high value orders at a pretty big disadvantage because sellers with high volume low value products like simple voiceover, editing, proofreading, etc can easily hit the target once they start going. All they need is 50 x $5 = $250 worth of service in 2 months.
On the other hand, high value sellers who do things like programming, don’t really have a lot of service worth $5. Most of their orders are at least $15-$20 and for some sellers, $50-$100 gigs are the norm. While they may not have as many customers as those high volume sellers, they are definitely not new to the site.
But unlike the high volume sellers, reaching level 2 is not a simple task. They may need to create up to $700-$3000 worth of sale within 2 months to get to level 2. This really requires a lot lot more hours, and not to mention the amount of effort needed to find so many clients willing to buy your high value gigs.
I know this is not the right place to make a feedback, but can I suggest that we modify the level system so that sellers level up based on revenues rather than just quantity? Otherwise, it seems to me that quality isn’t important to fiverr.
