Hello community how are you. I have been observing that there buyer requests in the list which are almost month old. What is buyer request life cycle and is possible to know that either they have hired someone or not. In short how to know about still valid buyer request
As a rule of thumb I don’t send offers to buyer requests with more than 10 offers and over 3 days old ones.
I think they get paused after about a month.
I don’t think its currently possible to know when a buyer has hired someone (though it’s possible they may leave a review after buying a gig and that could potentially be checked). But it’s still (in my view) worth sending offers to requests you can do if it has lots of other offers and is a number of days old and you still have plenty of offers spare. If it’s anywhere close to a month old it’s unlikely worth it but if it’s closer to 3 days old it is still likely worth sending offers (sometimes buyers reply to offers quite a few days after the request was sent, and if you send your request later, you could be closer to the top of the list). Though if possible, I think it’s still worth sending offers to gigs you can do as soon as possible (maybe normally keeping at least some of the 10 available spare just in case needed).
Thank you for your reply
