How do busy Fiverr sellers manage their gig orders when they get a lot?

Start on the gigs which are soon due and work on them from there. Inform other buyers you will get to theirs.

Reply to @rodesigners: Yeah, it seems that way for me too, but we’ll both start having our gigs pile up!

When I find myself getting really busy with lots of orders building up in queue, I suspend the gigs that take more time and energy (like my transcriptions), but leave the small easy ones (like tweeting things and writing comments). Then I obviously do any pressing orders, or get a bunch of small ones out of the way to minimize how many open orders I have. The fewer the better, as a clear space lets me work faster and feel more accomplished. After doing all that, I just complete them in order of which is due first.

Reply to @magisworks: Normally when you suspend and then re-enable, you normally keep your rank. At least that has been my experience. However, keep in mind, rank is something that changes daily in some cases.

There was a suggestion in another topic for an app to be developed :D let's hope it happens!

I’m not afraid of many orders…as long as I have orders… but unfortunately that isn’t happening at the moment

I use excel and created alerts using it so I know what orders needs to be done first and so on.

I use project management software like Asana, Trello or Slack to track all my projects, that way I can be sure the efficient handling of all my projects.
