It is not that buyer requests (BRs) are not available for new/unleveled sellers. It is just that these sellers only have access to a small % of BRs that are available to sellers who are level 1 and higher.
There are several possible reasons why you don’t see any BRs:
There need to be buyers actually creating buyer requests (BRs) in the sub-category that you offer gigs in for you to see them. It could just be that there are no buyers creating BRs in your sub-category/whenever you check for them.
New sellers/unleveled sellers are shown much lesser # of BRs than sellers of a higher level. Sellers who are level 1 and higher have access to much higher # of BRs.
BRs can appear at any time of the day or night, and as soon as they appear, they often disappear within a matter of minutes (for new/no-level sellers). This is because BRs are programmed in such a way that they disappear (from new sellers’/unleveled sellers’ view) as soon as they receive ~10 offers from new/unleveled sellers. Considering there are thousands of sellers in each sub-category on Fiverr, you can imagine how quickly each BR receives 10 offers from new/unleveled sellers. It only takes a matter of seconds.
So, new/unleveled sellers kinda need some luck to happen on a BR. The best thing you can do to come across one is to check the buyer request page as often as you possibly can.
