New Sellers are copying the Top Rated Sellers


#1

Hi, Fiverr is really great place to start the career as a Freelancer. There are many new users come and post new gigs everyday to get orders. I see that many new users just copy the top rated sellers gig and try to confuse the new buyers. I’m not sure whether Fiverr is aware about this or not. I think Fiverr should try to stop this type of act on the marketplace. This type of things definitely bring down the reliability of the platform.

This is also a Violation of Fiverr T&C and there should be a “Report Inappropriate” button on each gig.



Here are few gigs which are just the copy of top rated sellers:



Original gig:-

What do you think Folks at Fiverr about this?


#2

I have noticed that too and find it quite annoying.


#3

People try to get seller in any way they can, that’s sad and annoying in one and seriously should be stopped.


#4

this is just ridiculous. cant we report them to fiverr?


#5

its hard out here, people have to do what they have to do to try to make a buck, There are scam artist everywhere…


#6

Well, if someone calls himself or herself:

? BEST CREATIVE eBook Cover Designer on Fiverr ?

And he or she has no reviews, then you know it’s a scam. Level 1 sellers are usually humble, it’s only later on that they start bragging. I would never call myself best anything, over promising is deadly. If you gotta sell, sell with the truth. “Over 1000 orders completed” for example.


#7

That is quite sad and uncreative. I try to supply what is unique… give people a reason to choose me.

Reply to @safwan: Yes, they can be reported to Customer Support, the same way you’d contact them for anything else.
