(For many this brief article is obvious, however, since in the past 10 days, I have come across 3 Buyers that are also Sellers and did not know this information, I find it important to share. )
If you purchase Gigs from other Sellers, this means you are now a “Buyer”.
So you are not to be the last to respond in a conversation, but the Seller you have contacted is.
Here’s the reason :
Like you (and them), I want a 100% RESPONSE RATE and, if reasonable, “within an hour”…Some sleeping hours excluded ;))
Some have misunderstood the fine details of the Response Rate.
The Sellers are the ones getting “Rated” for their Response… NOT the Buyer, EVEN IF you are a Seller.
There are two references where you can find this information on the Fiverr platform.
1/ On your Dashboard, just hover your curser over “Response Rate”; and
2/ On our Fiverr Academy Homepage, go to : “5 Tips for Providing High Quality Service on Fiverr”, under the Subtitle : “Be Responsive”.
Notice it is the Sellers guidelines. (Not Buyers)
Happy Buying and Selling !
