Hey sellers, i thought i could share this little information in this section just to help new sellers and those who does not understand how Fiverr’s ratings work.
It is quite simple for a seller to know what percentage his/her overall ratings should be, however, some sellers may find it a little tricky. Here’s my little explanation of Fiverr’s rating system. If you have a better means of calculating the overall ratings, do spare some time to add it below.
On Fiverr, each 5 star rating is 100 percent. If a five star rating is 100%, definitely, 1 star
rating would 20%
5 star = 100%
4 star = 80%
3 star = 60%
2 star = 40%
1 star = 20%
It is not possible for a buyer to rate you less than 1 star, so we don’t have anything
to do with 0% unless the order is automatically cancelled by the system for lateness, which may cause the seller to get a 0% rating (not very sure) for that particular order. Fortunately, i haven’t experience automatic order cancellation.
Assuming you are a new seller and the first buyer left a 5 star rating, your overall ratings
would be 100%. If you keep getting 5 star for each sale, your rating will remain 100%. Now
let’s do some simple mathematics with hypothetical figures.
25 Sales overall.
18 “5 star” = 1800
3 “4.5 star” = 270
2 “4 star” = 160
2 “3 star” = 120
Thanks for the correction @rezwan73
