I am using fiverr as a seller and buyer for over three years. EverydayI do see topics like “Why do I get no orders through buyer request?!” on the forum. Most of the time I choose the sellers I want to work with by browsing through their gigs and contacting them directly. This time I was trying out the buyer request section. I wrote a detailed request and now, only about 30 minutes later, I got 50 of useless offers from sellers who did not even bother to read the first two lines of it. Holy crap. I always thought you can’t see the buyers details (such as the username) but my personal inbox is also exploding with these morons who now contact me directly. “Give order! I can do work!”… and as I am also a seller, I am now supposed to answer these messages to keep up my response rate. Instead I’ll just report these guys. Besides that, I was looking for influencer, youtuber or blogger for a cooperation to promote an online course I created. The offers I get are ridiculous. Someone sent me an offer to create a 3D music video for me … and I am seller who creates 3D animated music videos.
This is horrible. I guess the same people come over to the forum to complain how they get no orders, how fiverr is responsible for them not being successful. Now, I’m going to try my luck by letting the request online until tomorrow, maybe there’s someone sane who actually reads and provides the service I need. Until then I’ll be busy with the remove button to get rid of all the copy paste offers.
Sorry, if I sound harsh. But as a seller and buyer on this platform, it’s just shocking. If every buyer gets spam like this after posting their request… holy.
