Hello! I am frustrated, angry, depressed. But here is my story.
I created my account around December 2016 and set up my first gig in February 2017. Sales came not so long, 3 days after creating my gigs, I think.
In the first 45 days, I made more than $700 already and thought “I’ve arrived.” But then, sales became slow. I hoped the situation will change but it never happened. I couldn’t get my Level 1 badge same month because my Response rate, Cancellation rate, and Rating (4.7) did meet up the requirements. I wasn’t bother; I will get it some day, I thought.
In April, I had to checked my gig analytics when the few orders I was getting were from repeat clients. What I saw was terrifying. My stats were red. I contacted CS to find out what was happening because I didn’t edit my gigs since creation but… I got the shocker of my life.
CS flagged two of my most popular gigs for copyright infringement. They said I had Shutterstock written in my gig descriptions. There was no way to edit the gigs because they moved them to Denied. So, I had to delete them and create new ones.
After creation, my gigs didn’t get a single impression for weeks. Multiple tweaking couldn’t help. I became afraid to contact CS again. My account may be blocked, who knows. With huge disappointment, I paused all my gigs in June and went on “a forced vacation.”
Last month, I got an email from Fiverr. I’ve been promoted to Level 1, read the message. I was so happy and decided to give Fiverr hustling another shot.
September 1st, I came back hoping that whatever bug(s) or whatever might have been unfriendly to my account should have left for another cause. Or so I thought.
I deleted my old gigs and created a new one. Five days and counting, I’m yet to have one impression on the gig. I create a second gig yesterday though.
At this moment, I’m confused. I don’t want to contact CS to inquire if this is a bug/tech issue. I am thinking of creating a new account, but OH, the agony of starting afresh in the domain of laborious level criteria.
I need your suggestions, please. Has anyone faced this kind of issue. It feels like Fiverr is on a personal war with my account.
