No more Packages in Voiceover category?

I just finished updating my pricing after receiving the banner and notification on my gig to do so from Fiverr. Now my packages are gone and there’s no option to add them back.

Also, there was no notice that I’ve seen that Fiverr is doing away with packages in my category.

Packages were popular with my buyers. However, they didn’t always order the appropriate one for the project, so I’m in favor of this new pricing structure.

Am I missing something?

Mod Note: I have been told by another V/O that there is a video which explains everything when you click edit on a V/O gig. I suggest all do that.

Packages is still there for me in voice-over category. I’m not sure what’s wrong… Have you tried editing the gig again and adding the packages from scratch? Or is the option to create/use packages gone completely? oO

It’s gone completely! I’ve tried editing several times and they are not there.

Did you get the orange banner and notification requiring you to update your gig pricing yet?

I would try to contact customer support about this. I had a banner reminding me way back, when they changed the names of the packages, but I don’t know if thats related to this…

Okay, thanks so much! I just got the notification about an hour ago. I’ve hunted all over the place and I definitely don’t have the option anymore.

By the way, I now have “Basic Offer” and then “Upgrades” but no more packages.

There was a video explanation which popped up and I did watch it. Now I can’t locate it. However, it did go over the basic gig prices and extras, but I still had in my mind that packages would still be an option since it didn’t specifically state that they were going away.

I just re-watched the video. Although it didn’t mention that packages were going away, it indicates that this is a new pricing structure.

It won’t be as easy to do a one-click package order anymore, but it will encourage buyers to carefully consider what they actually need and choose accordingly. :slight_smile:

Interesting… I haven’t gotten this update yet. Probably rolling it out slowly. At least now I’m aware of it, so I can sit down and have a look when I have the time. Thanks for letting us know!

I haven’t gotten any notification of a new pricing structure and my packages are still in tact. Considering the value I provide in my packages, if they are removing them from the voiceover category, that’s going to make me have to consider how to properly price my gig if I can’t offer the lower price plans I’ve used in my packages for larger jobs.

As a follow-up, when I clicked on the pricing tab while in edit mode for my gig, it still gives me the options for packages.

Yes, I had to really think about how I was going to change things. Also, there’s a couple of option extras that aren’t workable for me.

Yeah they must be rolling it out to only certain people. I still have the option to add packages if I wanted when I go to edit my gig.

I’m kind of glad they are getting rid of packages for us to be honest… I’ve tried it in the past and have had way more success without them.

I, on the other hand, am not. My packages are set up to be 48-hour delivery orders while my basic gig is 24 hours delivery. Also, my packages sell better than my basic gig. Of course, the workaround is going to likely be to offer the packages as separate gigs to achieve the same pricing structure I’m currently using, so it probably won’t be so bad.

I no longer see the option for package deals on my gig either. I also noticed that they bundle the “split Files” into a group of 5. Did that automatically happen to anyone else? Other than that , Im liking the new structure so far.

Yes, I have the same split files option. I like the pricing structure too. :slight_smile:
