I wish to share a story that recently happened to me on Fiverr.
I helped a new Fiverr member with her/his profile and gig here on forum and he or she replied twice with thanks and appreciation for that.
Just a few minutes later the same member inboxed me a message (already outside of the forum) with thanks and appreciation again and offered me his service.
I did not respond to that message and as a result the response rate dropped down accordingly.
I understand the purpose of response rate indicator as to promote quicker responses to Buyers.
But in my particular case the response rate is affected by Seller, resp. not responding to Seller within 24 hours.
According to my above findings I have to respond to any message (no matter if it is from Buyer or Seller) within 24 hours some way or another so that RR is not affected.
Is my finding correct? And if so does it make sense?
Thanks for your thoughts.
