I just researched about “Buyer Request”. Is there any specific time at which buyer request appear. In my case they appear 2 times in a day but time is not fix. Please let me know if you know anything about this.
I have not found a time when they all appear. I check BR first thing in the morning when I get up and then off and on throughout the day sometimes there are new ones sometime not.
Before becoming level 1, the buyer requests appeared and disappeared randomly. I found some times when the buyer requests were usually shown often. If you can see the buyer request on a certain time today you can check for requests 1/2 hours before or after that time the next day. It is not certain for every day but I noticed they followed a pattern.
After becoming level 1 you don’t have to worry about it since the requests will stay until the buyer closes them.
Me too. I check in morning and In evening but there is less chance of seeing a new request.
Really Helped. Thanks!
everything depends on the category of work you offer and the amount of people looking for is product, it also matters the level of the seller, not all sellers leave the requests at the same hours
I like this question. If a seller can avoid wasting time checking for BR when they wouldn’t be update, that will help them make their business more efficient.
Maybe BR is meant to be that way with new/unleved sellers for “not crammiing” purposes. Can you imagine 100,000 sellers sending one offer all at the same time (multiply this with n requests that buyers submit) hoping to be one of the first 10-14 offers to be allowed ? I’m not sure, but I guess BR’s page would colapse.
Would make sense! Maybe they’re staggered.
I think so, and I also think they are distributed so to match different time zones (day light, working hours, etc), giving this way a chance to every seller worldwide - when people sleep in Asia, it will be the turn for America and so on.
Hi there @tharvid, my platform is overflowed with buyers request. It thanks to your topic I checked my BR and to my surprise, I have a hole page listed. Never looked at it before. Here it is 19.55 CEST so maybe you should check yours as well. Wish I could give you some of mine as I’m far to busy at the moment to even send an offer. Here some buyers request I’ve received.
Best of luck to you!!

@pacquo always so keen
Hum, it also has to be said that the amount of requests showing on BR, depends on the category & subcategory. Some show plenty every day, others not that much, and there are categories that would not even show a request for days.
Okay thank you for another lesson
Unfortunately, there’s no specific time. Buyer requests can appear at any time of the day or night.
I agree. Even with the current “random drops” of BRs, each BR receives more than 30 offers within only a couple of seconds/minutes after they’re made visible.
Imagine if BRs were released based on a fixed schedule. I’m sure that the hundreds of thousands of sellers accessing the BR section at the same time would crash the website.
I never apply for a BR that is over a day or two old. Requests stay there even after being filled if the buyer does not delete it.
Hi @vickiespencer, thank you for your response. I never really thought of BR’s, to be honest. Never checked them out. I’m so busy with other projects that I haven’t thought of that!! So I’m not very familiar with BR but I get it now, better too late than EVER!! Cheers, Humberto
I peek at them when there are slow times, but I seldom find anything I am interested in. Also here is some interesting info about BR. For instance, once a BR has 10 sellers apply from each level it is supposed to disappear.
Thank you for this piece of information. I’m tryint to find a pattern and the 1/2 hours that you mentioned seems a really good way to use to get more results!
No it isnt and it’s a poor use of your time and will not help you grow your Fiverr business.
Also, you’d have to make thousands of dollars just to break even on the time spent.
