How long it takes to get the first order in Fiverr ever?

I don’t know what is happening, but I think four weeks is a long time to get a first customer. Can someone tell me how long it takes for him/her to get the first customer? And maybe some tips from the top seller. I will greatly appreciate it.


You cant expect any specific time related your first order. It all depends on your gig versatility, It’s images and the buyer request you have sent. Sometimes it takes a week to get order and sometimes it might take months. Don’t fall back and keep replying to buyer’s request. All the best.


i got first order after 3 months…you have to patient.


Nobody can say if it will took 1 day or 1 year, it depends on various terms, like the optimization of your gigs, if you area of expertise is full of competitors, etc…

I don’t know if there is any timing when you will get orders. But i do know that if you work real hard you will get what you want. I hope yoj you get what you want.


Hey there. Peoples experience vary as related to getting first order and it depends on a lot of different variables. I got mine after two days but you just have to remain patient and continue to send buyers requests. I got a response from a customer about a request I sent yesterday so that works. Keep your head up and good luck
