I have met the requirements to be a top rated seller for three months now, each time watching as the evaluation day came and went with no promotion. Every box checked, met all the requirements, and I just kind of thought “well, I guess bc of covid, maybe they are running minimal staff, etc…”
Then last night I got ****ing demoted because my response rate dropped to 89%. I’m not complaining because of that, obviously that’s my fault. But to be passed up for months eagerly awaiting my HARD EARNED top rated seller status… to then be demoted to level 1 because I was 1% under the 90% response rate… yeah, I’m pissed.
All I got was the most generic, canned corporate response from customer support. Didn’t even begin to address the issue or inform me why I was not promoted for months when I clearly met all the requirements.
Fiverr treats their sellers like absolute ****, giving away our work at the lowest possible prices to entitled buyers who want the best quality for the price of a McDonalds cheeseburger. Even in the fine print, unless you protect yourself, you give away all copyrights and they don’t even have to credit you. It’s absolutely toxic. This site keeps going downhill, and the owners and CEO’s laugh all the way to the bank while outsourcing customer support to people who literally just copy and paste their responses from a generic “FAQ” section.
