Is always staying online really necessary to get buyers?

I mean It is said like an urban legend, but I never saw any benefit. Could this method have a different payoff that I don’t know? I will be waiting for answers from long-term users.


I also want to know if there is any benefit to being online 24 hours a day?

No, it is not necessary. It is unhealthy and impossible. In fact, I get most of my orders when I am not online, so you should stay offline 24/7 instead. :upside_down_face:
Go read a book on marketing instead of waiting in front of the screen! That will be a much better use of your time (that goes for 99% of new Fiverr sellers).

Most of the forum users recommending that you stay online 24/7 have never made a single sale themselves. Do you really want to listen to them? Please check the credentials of the people giving you advice before you follow them.

I’ve tried it for two weeks by leaving the Fiverr app open and online on my phone even when I am sleeping. Didn’t notice any increase in messages or orders.

My guess is people say that because you can filter the sellers by showing only those who are online, but it doesn’t look like the buyers are using that option very much, except maybe those who are in a hurry. But since I don’t offer 24h delivery, those buyers probably won’t chose my gigs anyway.


Being online is good but when you have some task on fiverr site. or working on some other thing in browser tab. In my experience only stay online for gig order, not working anymore.


Definately. It will shows you online and buyers are always want to get feedback after knocking someone.
