I’ve been on fiverr for about 2 1/2 years and have completed about 1800 orders so far. Lately people started purchasing my gigs instead of sending me messages to receive custom offers all the time.
That kind of caused me trouble because people ended up buying like 8000 words on my basic gig (which is 250 words in 2 days). So people forced me to complete 32x the package in just 2 days because the timer doesn’t scale up at all. I went away from the additional words option to the custom extra option and set up my extras over there.
Today a customer informed me that my gig page would be strange because I would just have a simple dropdown list for people to select multiples while other people she is working with have a field where buyers can enter the exact amount of words they need and fiverr automatically calculates the price (and would also adjust the timer accordingly?) Also my client talked about them having certain restrictions (like a limiting function which I also don’t know if it really exists)
I went ahead to the marketplace and indeed many people have those fields where you can enter the exact amount of words however I didn’t see that the timer would scale up (which is my main problem about it) However I also saw other sellers who didn’t have that field.
I believe this field could be the solution to my problem though. However I can’t seem to find any option to set something like that up. I contacted 5 different sellers who had it but they didn’t know how to activate it either.
It would be great if you guys could help me setting that up. As I am exclusively on the seller side and Fiverr doesn’t shoot us patch notes at all I don’t really keep track of changes they make.
