Possible to stop accepting a new order temporary with keeping to deliver?


I know about the vacation mode, however, I believe it means all activities including not only accepting a new order but also delivering the orders which are already received are not available (Please correct me if I’m wrong!)

I’d just like to keep working to deliver, but sometimes it’d be painful to have too many orders to handle, even though, ppl keep placing new orders no matter I mentioned it might take longer than usual to deliver, and that gives me stress pretty much, also I’d feel bad to get to be in vacation mode with keeping many buyers wait… so I cannot.

I wish I could only have accepting a new order unavailable. Isn’t it possible or any idea to do like that?

Thank you so much for your advice.


You can activate “vacation mode” to specify the reason-you can choose between “vacation”, “overbooked”, or “other”. It will still allow you to work on your current orders ;).


If you activate vacation mode, it just means you don’t get any new orders, you can still complete the orders already made :slight_smile:

Thanks! I made my gig in vacation mode now for the reason of “overbooked” :slight_smile: It seemed fiverr would let my buyers know about my taking vacation mode and if they could tell them the reason also, it would be much better, I hope that xD


Reply to @yuko0000: Vacation mode is incredibly useful when you get overwhelmed. I’m using it right now too. :slight_smile:
