The day I was due to get my Level 2 back


#1

I get removed from the searches completely. Gig nowhere to be found.

Tired of people canceling when they have some of the content (4 out of 5 of the last cancellations) and the threat of an account warning if I use the gig extension button. Same with people cancelling without submitting only half the information. Can’t use the gig extension button.

Tired of somebody blackmailing me and an inability to do anything about it or risk the threat of an account ban.

Tired of linking customer support to online threads which give guides on how to scam me, and then getting an account warning.

It is freaking frustrating.

Now I have been removed from the searches (when sales had started to pick up again), and there is no explanation for it.

I was meant to get my Level 2 back today.

I am hoping it is a temporary glitch and I can force myself back in, but I don’t know. I had 60 sales the past couple of days.

It really is not helping that some buyers are placing 20-30 orders individually. Then I deliver them. They don’t leave a single feedback, yet I would get 30 negatives if they cancelled (or, if I offer mutual cancellation, punishment for too many cancellations).

I wouldn’t mind if it was knocked back a few pages (I have delivered about 60 gigs the past couple of days, but no feedback left). But, it seems to be a COMPLETE removal. I don’t know how to recover from that.

2*500 word articles for 5$??? I’m afraid to say you’re shooting yourself in the foot there. You have a ton of reviews. Increase your prices and you’ll see your quality of life improve dramatically. It’s baffling that you haven’t done so yet, to be honest.


#3

Not the focus of this thread. Tired of people saying that every time. Don’t mean to come across as rude, but every single thread it happens and it gets very annoying. The price isn’t the factor in why I have been removed from the searches :slight_smile:

Thanks!

I’m pretty sure what I said is very relevant, given this info. Deal with 5$ clients and this is what you get, and I speak from experience. I’ve delivered the EXACT SAME QUALITY PRODUCT for 10$ and 50$ on different occasions. Guess which gave me more headaches?

Think about it. 1 50$ order is equivalent to 10 5$ ones in terms of earnings. You won’t spend 10 times the time on the 50$. Goodbye late deliveries. Goodbye to a good chunk of cancelations and people trying to abuse you (people willing to pay more are, you know, more professional. Less likely to try to scam you or take advantage. Better communication skills on average. etc.).

Believe me - you are severely undermining yourself and every seller in your category. Don’t do that. Do you really want to be competing with the junk sellers with broken English? Because that’s what you’re doing. And you’re getting their clients.

On the other hand, writing gigs are completely crazy in terms of pricing. I don’t get it. There are “pro” sellers with gigs for 1000 word articles selling for 400$. There’s no way they’re even 10 times better than a native English writer selling the same thing for 5$. Yet they still sell. It’s baffling. There are categories where the price difference is justifiable and noticeable in the product, but in writing gigs? It’s absolute lunacy, unless you are a literature Nobel or Pulitzer winner or something. Which nobody here is.

Hoping it is a glitch but I would also not be surprised if it was Fiverr deciding to change the situation as you have refused to over the past 6+ months.
You have 60 orders in queue, take the opportunity to clear your backlog and stop those late delivery reviews.


#7

I have no idea what to tell you Ryan. I am not going to offer a condescending advice, that much I can tell you. You know what to do, do it.


#8

Fiverr has not given me the opportunity to change the situation.

The one solution they gave me for changing the situation gave me an account warning i.e. using the system to increase the delivery time. I did. I got demoted to level 1 for abusing the system.

Right now, they acknowledge that most of those cancellations come from people who have received the content, but they won’t do anything about it.

They even acknowledged that people were writing guides to scam me.

A lot of the recent cancellations have come from Fiverr falsely telling me I could no longer write product reviews, and the clients didn’t want to wait when I told them I had to rewrite thier gig (at least 3 declined mutual cancellation)


#9

If you are outside of Europe, Google my name sometime. There is a reason why I need to rely on Fiverr for work now :slight_smile:


#10

I’m in Europe. What will I find by googling you?


#11

I guess we oldies have nothing to say as the energy is exhausted. Let the new comers ( of forum ) console you.


#13

Right, so it is up to you to stop sending stuff before it is delivered, not Fiverr to sort out after the fact.

That is not Fiverr’s problem though, it is yours. I don’t know of anyone else with that issue so clearly there is something in YOUR process that is causing the problem. presumably it is the partial delivering of orders.

Come on, this is going on longer than 6 months (in my mind I am thinking over a year but haven’t actually looked to be sure), that is a minute percentage of the overall issue.


#14

You have two options:

  1. Create a new account. If you are a good writer, you can start writing articles at your current prices for a month or two, until you get a couple dozen reviews. THEN INCREASE YOUR PRICES. It will work, trust me.

  2. Advertise it. Own it. Write the terrible reviews and the attacks ON YOUR GIGS. Use it as a gimmick - look what all these people who are trying to **** me are saying about me - I must be really awesome for so many competitors to try to shut me down. BUT IM HERE *****!

Either way, better than your current situation. Good luck!


#15

Fiverr customer support have stated to me numerous times to partially deliver content as long as I do not mark it as complete.

The guide was written by another seller here (the same one that wrote the four reviews highlighted previously)


#16

But why do you need to deliver partial work? Man, you honestly sound like you don’t want any advice. Lower the volume of sales by increasing the prices, stop needing to deliver partial work. Am I speaking to a wall? :S


#17

Obviously people don’t read the rip off report on you or you wouldn’t have 60 orders in your queue. Or even if they did it wouldn’t matter since it is apparent it is from a very disturbed individual. It’s sad that there is a site that slanders people that way.


#18

So you got it really quick. Good job. Now you are in one of the oldies.


#19

The site itself is pretty useful, imo. Ofc people will then abuse it.


#20

Ahaha. First time reading about this situation, I think xD


#21

It seems more useful to those who are disturbed than anything else, who enjoy slandering others. I think most are like that creepy person.
