Also there seems to be some match to sales dropping since the increased service fee on orders.

yes i have heard about that ,they charge a 7$ for basic gig now . might be one of the reason but i am seeing not much effect of it on other’s gigs , i do hope that they bring high value customer with this change through advertisement or something …

thank you so much :hearts:

I am also facing that problem . Last 2 month my earning is getting down, for some old client I was able to get sales $400. I also edited my gig but not worked. New clients didn’t come. Traffic was very low. In this running month same problem is occurring.
Thank you

check out first comment by lloydsolutions. it might help but this is definitely a systematic issue , lets hope fiverr team do some updates in their system .

A lot of sellers see this increase as a problem, but how many of your orders were for $5 gigs?

  • If it’s the majority of your orders then maybe it’s time to step up your game. There are plenty of posts on it.
  • If it’s only a fracture then I highly doubt a buyer who pays let’s say $30 even notices this $1 difference.

Do I like the increase? Of course not because for orders over $40 it’s not just $2.
However, if you are a freelancer selling on multiple platforms then you can work your way around it.

keep patience, it will be ok

don’t worry brother everything will be fine.

hahah… Even more sells will decrease for everybody. I got 45 orders only in Last 6 month. So according to this - 1 order in 4 day!

Me too so I looking for alternative platform, and it’s NOT OK.
It’s time to get ready guys, diversify your income, because I’ve waited so long, they only care about the PRO now. I’m speaking from a 7 years TRS pov.

True. I see some of the TRS been here since fiverr.com launched, some of them doing really great work and good reputation, but they’ve got demoted and dropped in sales big time. Some of them joined other platform, I’m 100% sure they are not happy with the current changes.

I used to offer my service exclusive on fiverr (what they suggest us back in the old days), but now no more, it’s too risky and I really feel it’s not worth to be exclusive on fiverr anymore.

yeah i can truely understand. As you are a TRS from 7 year. And you’re thinking to change platform. That’s mean a lot. In that way, we can’t think, what’s going on to Level 2, who have exclusive on fiverr from last 5 years or more!!

I had changed a platform a year ago and Now it’s good for back-up earnings :smile:

Fiverr is promoting PRO only. Don’t know why!! If we are working at fiverr from last 5-7 years. We have completed thousands of job then they should consider us as PRO!!

Facing the same trouble here, June has been awful for me. I also wonder why I get dozens of 5-star feedback and I never go up to 4.8, but one customer rates me 3.6 and immediately go down to 4.6… that’s something that bothers me too @chrisdata which other options are out there? I thought that if you were on Fiverr you couldn’t be anywhere else.

You can offer your service in other platforms, I don’t know how it performs on the site yet, it starts with a P but all I knew was that fiverr no more appreciate their seller who did Exclusive on fiverr anymore.

@fast_editing because they earn more while the PRO get orders. I been following their social media they only promoting Pro. That was a shame we can’t carry our review and ratings to the PRO gig, gonna start all over again with the base price of $100. At the same time I saw most of the PRO seller in my category only sold 2 - 3 sales in several months, that’s just not pratical in my category, some of them even no sales but displaying high, top row of the page! Why’s that? That’s not fair to us who sold our soul to fiverr since 2011.

Sales down due to fee, on gig $5, fee is $2, that mean about 50% on $5 gig
