So I was clicking through the app to find a portfolio link on the gig page because the potential buyer has claimed it wasn’t there. And instead, I bumped into this lovely addition which was discussed before.
I think we all decided fiverr was testing something out and let it go.
The thing is, my “meets deadlines” metric (which is a fancy name for the “delivered on time”, I assume) is set to 95% here.
And my “delivered on time” is 100%. On desktop, on the app, on my analytics page. I haven’t had a late delivery in years. I’ve had 3 of them in total in my entire time on the platform. I miraculously escaped the 4th one this month, but I did escape it. The deadline was extended less than an hour before the order was due.
No “this order is late!” emails, no complaints from buyers that things are running too slowly, nothing.
What is this? Why are they deliberately lowering my stats for public display but not for me to see?
Or am I being secretly penalized for something and finding this by accident is the only way to know?
I’m having a pretty terrible week as it is and as a result, I did deliver 3 or 4 orders after the “you have less than 12 hours to deliver!!!” email. It’s a conspiracy theory of mine that fiverr doesn’t like it when you do that. But you’d think they’d inform you it was a punishable offence instead of showing you 100% / 100% / 100% / 5* everywhere while in reality, you’re slowly rolling down toward the demotion.
