Posting Buyers Request Free of Cost is a Problem

For some days, I’ve been wondering whether posting a request costs any money or not. If posting a request doesn’t cost any money, many people whimsically post requests and waste the sellers’ time. We the sellers wait for the buyers’ request. We send requests but get no response. It’s frustrating. At least, the system should be like this that if a buyer wants to post a request, he/she must deposit the budget price to Fiverr. The buyer must get the project done. And the project price will be paid by Fiverr. You can give your opinion if I’m mistaken.

Yes, You are right. This is big problem for identifying which is real and which is fake. This is really a big matter of concern…

It is possible to inform the Fiverr Authority about this?

You’re not entitled to a response, there are dozens of sellers that would be responding to the same Buyer Request, which in turn means that they’ll easily choose someone else over you.

You aren’t in any obligation to respond to buyer requests, sorry if this is harsh but this is by far the most childish “suggestion” I’ve ever seen on this Forum.

Yeah, you are right. But I saw some people posting requesting about nothing. Today some seller posted request as a buy and asked for projects.

One more thing, if this the case that the buyer has a chosen seller, then why posts a request. He can just send message to the seller and can make a deal. As I do. I have some clients. They don’t post any request now. They send me message and give me instruction. I follow their instruction, then they place an order.

If buyers have to pay to post a buyer request, I suggest that sellers should also pay for every offer they send to buyer requests. That way we will get rid of all the spammers with copy-paste proposals.

Yeah, you are right.

And it’s a bit ok because the offer number is limited for the sellers.

I don’t think they should be charged for posting them, but I do think they should be vetted. Their should be criteria you have to meet.
