Usually I post optimistic things here, but today after almost a month without orders (and I’m a level 2 seller) I can’t.
Until recently, I had 100% 5-star ratings on my gigs. Then, I got an order from a repeat buyer who had previously been great to work with. He requested something I couldn’t provide (an image I didn’t have and couldn’t find for free). I communicated the issue with the buyer and, when I didn’t hear back, I delivered the gig as best I could without the image, using a drawn graphic instead.
A couple of days later, I got my first 4-star rating.
I contacted the buyer and edited the gig further as best I could, but the review didn’t change and now, almost a month later, I’ve had no further orders.
It seems unfair that one less than perfect review dropped my standing so far, but I guess that’s how Fiverr’s algorithms work. Sellers beware.
