Original Title: there should be more than 2 level, please share your thought.

Hi,

Level one and two every one knows how to get it and we get it after small amount of order. TRS is kind a jump after these 2 level.



OR a option like for level 1 and level 2 where we can check our % that how close we are to TRS and what we should do to achieve it.



So would be nice if there is more level following some criteria and TRS should be automatic of course with term and conditions and a option where we can see how close we are to next level.



I understand that if there is more levels fiverr has to offer difference in levels if it is hard than TRS should be done automatic. (can have really hard criteria to get it though )

we just wonder after 2 level when is next and we are close or not?



What you guys think?

Thank you

Preeti






Buyer request area is filled with irrelevant requests

I see 3 or 4 seller who have more then 200 Positive review but they are still TRS. so I am not agree on 500 positively rated orders…



Other then thank you very much for information. I am happy I am an Master Seller.

Reply to @kozakura: Thank you for your support. you are right it will give buyers better understanding because seller get level 2 after 50 orders so lots of people with 50 orders and some level 2 seller with thousands order in same boat.



which is not good…

I agree. It will help provide growth giving sellers more levels to work towards, and it will give buyers a better understanding of the experience of the seller.


#5

please share your opinion so we can finish this unknown gape from level 2 to TRS.

Reply to @kjblynx: but see that is an interesting thought because it might be perception also. I don’t think of the Levels as long time seller…I think of Level 2 as just a higher quality of seller, merely that they have a good amount of successful sales under their belt. AS a buyer whether someone is there for 3 years or 3 months if they are a Level 2, I think of them both the same.



SO I guess what I am saying is that as a buyer I’m not always looking for someone who has been here longer. If they offer a creative piece of work and I like their portfolio that is what matters more to me, not whether someone has 100 sales or 1000 sales. In fact to be perfectly honest, I tend to stay away from people that have that many sales for some reason.

Thank You

@kjblynx: I hope so, we need support and suggestion from other fivers…

this is an interesting suggestion…as a buyer this may be a bit too confusing what you are suggesting. There needs to also be a simplistic aspect to the levels - New, Level 1, 2 and then high rated sellers is much easier to understand at a first look and a new buyer doesn’t really need to go read something to understand what all the levels actually mean.



Adding the language you are suggesting here also makes it difficult with any language barriers, which is why 1 & 2 work as numbers are universal. YOu could do something more like New, Bronze, Silver and Gold or add Gold and then Platinum. I think everyone around the world at least knows Bronze, Silver and Gold via the Olympics.

The thread has been revived as a starter discussion on the topic of adding more levels past level 2. There is a particular drive to add levels other than TRS that have attainable and specific goals. This could give incentives to sellers and excite them about continuing to move up but in ways that they can work toward in a structured way.

I go back and forth on levels a lot.

Levels make it harder for new sellers to get going.

Levels let buyers see the a seller has been around, and has built a reputation.

I was thinking maybe levels should be based upon time on Fiverr and not actual number of sales. Some gigs are not high volume, so they can take very long to reach levels based upon sales.

Time could work like this

Newbie
6 Months
1 Year
2 Years
5 Years
etc

Buyers could still see total sales by a seller and reviews.

Thank you for all the support :slight_smile:


#15

I am agree with OP because more Levels will motivate us. I am looking forward for the comments of Fiverr forum moderators.


#16

Awesome discussion

while I think more levels would be moe motivational as the jump from level 2 to TRS seems like a huge gap. I don’t think the name of the levels should change… just add something to spice up the inbetween.


#17

Hey everyone lets come together. we need suggestion and help :slight_smile:


#18

Vote DOWN this is not mmo game…

And are not right about this at all since i had more orders when i was level 2 then now - "Level one and two every one knows how to get it and we get it after small amount of order. "



#19

Sounds interesting
One more thing I would like to add/discuss?

Number of offers a seller is allowed to send.

The Buyer Requests section is a major/only source of orders for many sellers and that is where all the buyers go to request services.
So isn’t it fair to have more offers depending on what level a seller has achieved?

I strongly feel that a sellers level should have a direct impact on the buyer request section.

I remember before when I join FIVERR had pretty good system based on level and we were able to see how many orders created from request. Now fiverr changed it.

Would be nice if we can go back.
