We should be able to customize our profiles to show or not show learn courses, per course, actually.
And all the bulk of other gigs certainly clutters the gig page and distracts.
But I can ignore that, while those new metrics that you don’t see (yet?), that’s something else, as the one I described above tells buyers that I didn’t deliver 5% of my recent orders (what’s recent?) on time and can actually keep a buyer from ordering - for no reason at all, unless they are buyers who don’t provide the order requirements timely or wrong files, etc and yet expect timely delivery. All buyers who supplied the required files and info got their deliveries within the original deadline, often much before, so why lead them to believe a seller might not deliver on time, when in fact they do.
I just don’t get this. Are we supposed to only advise far too long delivery times (which may and will lead to fewer sales) 100% of the time, just in case 5% of buyers send a wrong file or login within whatever random period of time, and to cover any amount of days that may or may not be needed for revisions, or whatever?
Buyers sometimes want 24-hour delivery, and that’s a good thing too for Fiverr, as they typically cost more, and they are risky already (because, sorry to be the bearer of bad “news”, sometimes buyers do not send the correct login, file, etc.) and even if you ask for an extension, there is no guarantee that the buyer will be online to accept it, no need to make them even more risky with that display of disjointed information for no good reason. Sure, we can all switch to 30 days delivery only, no matter what, just in case, but, I suppose, then 95% of buyers would be gone.
Well, I’m in out of office mode currently, and before I’ll be back, I’ll rethink offering 24 hour gigs at all and my delivery times in general.
The only gig I needed an extension for “recently” was buyer’s responsibility and it’s a long story but believe me, they were happy that I did work with their exotic file at all, I even had to jump through several hoops, including a subscription to the only software that file could be edited with, etc., I got 5* and an enthusiastic review about going far beyond the call of duty, all was fine - unless now it seems I get rewarded with the claim I didn’t deliver 5% of my orders on time for that (can’t imagine any other reason than the extension, everything else was delivered on time; well, and that order too, on time for the 1 extension). That’s just … why?
Very good question, would certainly be more helpful and relevant for buyers looking at my gig to decide if they want to order from me than to know that I didn’t deliver 5% of my orders “on time” (with no context which would show that it’s not relevant for them that I didn’t, unless they plan to send a file that’s not editable or a wrong login or something the like).
