Vacation mode and gig appearing

I was getting wonderful orders every day! I was also showing up on the first few pages in my category for months. Then I had some family summer commitments and had to activate VACATION MODE. When my vacation mode was over, my orders have take a hit. I am now on page 11 and think it may have something to do with being on vacation. I will keep you all posted :slight_smile: I am grateful to Fiverr for the opportunity to join the gig economy and I am truly loving it! I just want to get back to work and connect with wonderful buyers. Just trying to take advantage of a slow time.


When I have gone on OOO mode it takes about a week to start getting orders from anyone other than my regulars.


Yes you are right. I am starting to get orders again and I moved up a few pages in the ranks! Thank you.

I had a similar experience. Give it time and it’ll work out.

This doesn’t work for everyone, but an alternative to Vacation Mode is to extend the delivery date on all your gigs. I did this just before a 10-day vacation where I had Internet access and could work 4 to 5 hours a day before going out. The day I left, orders came in. I had the peace of mind that not only did I have new orders waiting for me but I had plenty of time to complete them.


Did you extend your time with existing orders? Also what about a 24 hour delivery?

I dropped the 24-hour Rush delivery and extended delivery from 2 days to 5 days.

We drove two days to our destination and I allowed for a recovery/rest day in there too :slightly_smiling_face:

Once I was settled back home, I set-up 24 Hour Rush and changed standard delivery back to 2 days.


I was pleasantly surprised that so many people were super nice about the extended delivery times and everyone sent me “No rush, enjoy your vacation!” type messages.


Hello all the best to you. :slight_smile:
