I want to raise mine again but don’t want them to disappear never to be seen again for a year like the last time I edited my gigs.

The last time I edited my gigs orders stopped except for repeat clients for a long time.

How many time max a month you recommend when you want to edit your gig?

I raised my gig price already on 2019.

Me, I’d recommend editing “as often as needed but as seldom as possible”.


Well, yeah, that’s a good and an unfortunate reason to not edit gigs.

I think sometimes the edit lowers the gig ranking.

It all depends on how your gigs are doing in terms of impressions and sales. And one should make reasonable increment in the pricing even if they are excelling in their field because Fiverr has become a lot more competitive than it was a couple of years ago. Good luck everyone!

Infact, I am thinking to reduce my price a bit because I am with no levels at present. :man_facepalming::joy:

I am sticking with $5. I will add some gig extras and some new gigs. Hope my new gig will be best seller. My goal is to become Top seller within 3-4 months.

Ah, my bad, I should have that as an option too. I’ll add a poll for that to the opening post where you can return to and vote. Thanks for your comment!

I would say that the very worst thing right now about the site is how we can’t edit our gigs without them being buried and remaining buried. My top gig was selling like crazy so I edited it and it was then gone, rarely getting a new client for almost an entire year. :scream:

It just finally came back and again is getting tons of orders and I see how much I’ve lost from that. Never again will I edit a gig.

I have another gig I edited at the same time and it is still buried.

If that’s the norm and not some kind of exception and “bug”, I’d agree that it might well be the worst thing about the site. (Of course, it would be the worst thing in either case for people who are affected.)
What exactly did you edit in those two cases, just price or just description, images, …, or several things at once?

I don’t remember what it was. It wasn’t the prices. I removed a sentence I had but can’t remember it now. And I know I edited them, made them go live to see them then edited them a second time so maybe that was what did it, doing it twice in a row.

Good to know it wasn’t the prices in any case. Good luck with the still buried gig, may it rise like Phoenix from the ashes.

Hm, perhaps that might cause some unintentional issue, who knows. I’ve had ooo mode on over Christmas and New Year’s too, the latter time, I wanted to add a day because I got sick, and it didn’t work, had to turn ooo off, then back on with the new return date but it didn’t register, and I ended up trying again after a while until it finally worked. “Doing something twice in a row” might somehow overexert the poor ones and zeros, idk.

No @misscrystal am not increasing my gig prices just because am new on fiverr and it is very difficult to get first order. But am trying through buyer requests. :slightly_smiling_face:

I just raised prices in my bestseller gig yesterday and surprisingly it did not affected in bad way. But its just 24 hours passed so i will wait and will check on Monday about the effect.

I lowered mine $5 per package per gig in Dec. Seems to have helped some. Gig extras came down some too. If things get to taxing, I can re raise them

Mine have been more than $5 for a very long time, but I will probably raise them again at some point this year.
