I got a message for one of my gig

Yesterday i got a message from someone who is interested in one of my gig, However i had a few questions and asked them, It’s been 24 hours, the person shows online but is not responding. This happened to me once before and i cancelled the order because there was no prompt response… My question to fellow people who has been on fiverr for a long time is, how long does it take for a buyer to respond are they always this slow at responding? or is there some other issue?

It depends on the buyer. I wouldn’t pester them, though. I’m both a buyer and seller and sometimes I “shop around” looking for the best person for the job. I get very annoyed when a seller continuously messages me asking if I’m ready to buy yet.

If they want to buy your gig, they’ll come back and talk to you. Don’t wait around on them :slight_smile:


This can vary wildly. It depends completely on the individual buyer. I’ve had buyer’s contact me about a gig, then fall off the map and never be heard from again. (This is not uncommon.) But other times I’ve had a buyer contact me months later asking for a custom offer like no time had passed.

Other times you get a message and an order all within an hour. It really depends…

Good luck!

Thank you sydneymorgan and theslackjaw for answering my queries

There are no rules, some buyer replay soon someone late and someone other never!
