Question for sellers and frequent buyers


#1

Votes are anonymous and I’m just curious to see how often this happens. Thanks.

  • I have given random seller a tip of $5 or more without buying
  • I have given one of my regular sellers a tip of $5 or more without buying a gig
  • I’ve only tipped at delivery for exceptional work
  • I don’t believe in tips (or not sure what it)

Question for sellers. Again, anonymous.

  • I have received a tip from a random buyer for no reason
  • I’ve received tip from regular buyers for no reason (or without buying gig)
  • I’ve only received tip after delivery.
  • I get tips but I feel guilty as I charge appropriate amount for my gigs
  • Still waiting to get my first tip.

Why would anyone tip for nothing? That makes no sense.


#4

Some sellers have tip gig.

I gave it to someone that I knew for a fact did charity work because I knew he’d use it to take care of people in his town.


#5

I checked that I have received a tip from regular buyers for no reason but the poll isn’t showing my vote for some reason.

I think I get tips this way when the spells manifest so I guess there is a reason but it’s not at the time of delivery.


#6

Weird, it should work. Maybe try again?

I can see that happening. I’m actually surprised you don’t have a gratuity gig.


#7

I have a gratuity gig but it’s paused unless someone messages me about leaving a tip.


#8

“I get tips but I feel guilty as I charge appropriate amount for my gigs”

Good point. It happened a few times - I quote a reasonable price…task turns out to be too easy…I feel guilty… and then, the Buyer gives a tip! :joy:


#9

It says 7 voters but 9 total votes so not sure what’s going on with the bottom poll.


#10

For the second poll you can leave multiple votes it’s using checkboxes.


#11

You can vote for more than one thing - so more votes than voters! :grinning:

Sorry @uxreview - you beat me to it!


#12

I voted for

  • I’ve only received tip after delivery.
  • I get tips but I feel guilty as I charge appropriate amount for my gigs

I get tips only after order delivery and sometimes I do feel guilty :smiley:


#13

Yeah. One of those extra votes is mine :grin:


#14

Missing an

☐ I’ve tipped my buyer, kinda.

option. :stuck_out_tongue:


#15

I have never received a random tip (I don’t have a gratuity gig though)

I have tipped a random person I found on Fiverr. I loved his work and I really wanted to support him.


#16

I think that is super nice, especially for new sellers. Great way to motivate them. :slight_smile:


#17

Is it possible for a buyer to directly leave a tip without buying any gig?


#18

Yes.

I have done so, several times.

You have a tip gig, then I buy, you deliver a “Thank you” message, I accept delivery and rate.

If you do not have a tip gig, I can buy any gig, and tell you that it’s for a previous excellent work and no delivery is required. To close it out, you send a “Thank you” message - most send a picture, gif file or such, I accept delivery and close it out.

Long as you, the seller, deliver what I ask & 5r gets 20%, it is within ToS.

I’ve yet to have a seller report me for giving them a tip without ordering a gig. :slight_smile:


#19

That’s good. A buyer can leave a tip on a completed order whenever he/she wants within a specified duration. However, I think it’s another tactic to increase the no. of reviews on a seller’s profile because getting a tip on a regular gig does not accompany a review.
Anyways, thanks for sharing info.

Isn’t that an awesome feeling, though? You know that client is easy to work with & the next time they order you may want to give them a little extra - which would probably end up getting you more tip. :slight_smile::slight_smile:

Round and round you go - however, it’s a problem I’ve yet to read a complaint on. :grinning:

Didn’t think of that! Generally speaking, when you give your buyer more than ordered, that is a good tip!! :smile::smiley::blush:
