Hello, so I have recently been wondering what the criteria is for leveling up to level 2. I am a level 1 seller and I am 90% of the way to being leveled up to level 2. So here it is. First I took to the forums to inquire about the leveling up criteria. I was told you cant have gigs with similar wording, you cant use stock images. Some said you have to use the same images and others have said you have to have different images. I was getting some mixed information, so I decided to ask support. I asked them if you are not aloud to use stock images (royalty free images), I asked them if the pictures had to be the same, and I asked if the gigs couldn’t be the similar. This was the response that I got back from fiverr support.

If you’d like, I can briefly review that forum thread to clarify further, however I do not believe the information you were provided on that thread was correct.
Pretty much, you would just need to follow the guidelines set on our Levels page to be ranked up, so things like your Gig choice or pictures chosen would not have any major affect (unless they were removed for violations).
So basically, the only criteria that is needed to level up is what is on the criteria page alone. As Justin kindly stated, you would just need to follow guidelines on the criteria page, unless your gig was removed for violations. Which you would obviously realize, if your gig was removed for violations.
I hope this discussion has shed some light to other sellers wondering about this and getting mixed information, because I know it has for me.
However I do thank every fiverr member that has taken the time out to read my discussions and try to give me some answers. I truly appreciate it.
