The majority of gigs are NOT fiverr gigs, but upsells only. I am finding a lot of gigs bypass the base $5 gig and will only do work for more money, even when you only want the basic advertised $5 gig. I really like your site Fiverr. I have spent around $500 on Fiverr gigs. Below is a message I sent to customer support, I hope I get a response:
I just want to let you know that the majority of Fiverr gigs are no longer Fiverr gigs. The sellers wont perform anything at all for $5, it's all upsells for $10 and $20 and sometimes $40 for the advertised fiverr.
I understand your company makes a percentage of sales, so the upsells are good for business. But what about customer service and your buyers.
Your sellers are taking advantage of your system to the point where $5 work is no longer available, you must spend double that amount to get any work at all. I have inbox correspondence to prove it.
I'm wasting my time going through the gigs to find a real fiverr gig. My friend and I discussed going somewhere else to hire for services we need.
Please don't misunderstand, it's not the money because I have bought upsells when I need them, its that the actual $5 gig is being bypassed for upsells ONLY and it wastes my time going through that.
I have to wait a day or two to get correspondence back and then 3 or 4 people are charging $30 and $40 for a fiverr gig, and I had to wait to find out, wasting my time.
Please let me know if you are creating a policy to address these concerns, if you do a google check you will see lots of complaints and lost customers for your services.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
What are your thoughts? Anyone?
