The fiverr system allows old sellers to see more buyer requests than new sellers. The system wants to protect buyers, so only trusted sellers will get lots of buyer requests posted on their gig category.
If you have been doing some research, you would have come across many tips to see buyer requests on fiverr.
However, the ultimate solutions are three small factors that you are overlooking:
- You need lots of activity on your account
Firstly, when buyers go through the pages, looking for sellers, they are most likely to contact online sellers. So if you stay offline or sleep most of the time, you’ll spend more days waiting fruitlessly, while your potential buyers contact other serious sellers.
Your online activity also signals fiverr that you are a hardworking seller, making you liable to rank better on the search pages.
- You need to watch out for buyer requests.
You probably check your account from time to time. But time to time is not enough.
Checking your account all the time increases your chances of getting requests. Even as a new seller, you will get one to two buyer requests on your account. But there’s a particular time that these requests are posted for you. Depending on your location, the times differ.
Nonetheless, if you check your fiverr a lot, at least, every 10 minutes, you are giving yourself the advantage.
You are a new seller, so it’s worth the sacrifices you make. When you rank better in the system, you wouldn’t need to put in so much work anymore!
So, check your buyer request section frequently and study the times that you get requests. That particular time is when the system shows you buyer requests. You may never get requests for the rest of the day.
- Create a template for offers.
When you finally see your first buyer request, you shouldn’t forget that other sellers are seeing it too. Of the many offers other sellers send to the buyer, one of them may wow the buyer quickly. And that’s how you’ll lose one buyer request and many more to come.
Hence, you need to create a template for the offers you send.
You can use this format:
Hello, (buyer’s name)
I can see that you need a (job requirement or title) for your (possible position)
I am a (your profession) and I can (your skills)
I will offer you (benefits of working with you) and help you provide (certain results or goals)
Here are some of my samples (add a link, if you have one).

With a template, it’ll be easier for you to complete requests without panicking. Put enough work into your template to get the buyer’s attention. Even with one or two buyer requests that show up for you once in a while, if you can get one order everyday, that is 30 orders a month!
Put the work into it. And you’ll get results. It worked for me, so I’m sharing it for everyone too to try it out.
