I think there is many reasons,personally reason and maybe they got a new offer or a better one.

This is pretty typical. Ensure you read exactly what the buyer is asking for, and respond with specific information. Buyers not responding is just part of doing business here.

They are not buyers until they buy.

Lots of people ask questions without ever intending to buy, or are just window shopping.

I do it too sometimes when I see a gig I am interested in but am not ready to buy.

A lot of messages are basically spam I’m afraid. Just make sure you always respond to the first message from a new person (and within 24 hours) or your “response rate” will be bad and you will be penalised.

Buyers send messages to more than one seller. They just order if they satisfied. Or just find someone else out of fiverr.

LOL I mark any person messaging me as a potential buyer.

Welcome to fiverr
If buyer message you it does not mean buyer only messaging you so first message should be like that you are the right person for job so its depends on you how your first impression on buyer

buyers are not reboots, so think in a professional manner they are also people like you they might be busy with family or there internet might be down or any thing else so simple make a clear mas in reply to your buyer & never send them multiple annoying msgs. i hope you can understand this

ALL THE BEST

Imagine a buyer messaging 20+ sellers about something that they need done. They choose one, or don’t find any seller they like. Do you really think that they have time to message those 20+ sellers just to tell them “sorry, maybe some other time”?

Some just see if you respond, other want to check your pricing, some are new sellers and just felt to send message to see how the whole thing works, exploring kind of thing, you never know, we can guess endlessly but don’t let that slow you down, just keep doing what you doing and never doubt yourself… I know sometimes not knowing why you never get respond for your job application, messages, interviews, etc makes one doubt him/herself, don’t do it… if they respond consider they might changed their minds, wrong message or whatever, just move on. Good luck…

Fiverr.com is the good site. But all of the buyers are not all real some of the scammer buyers. Like they are the seller and they want to design from the seller for sell their buyer.

two buyers demanded for samples to judge me. after I sent designs, they just vanished like aladin. after getting samples ,I think they should have at least informed us about our work. simple yes and no is enough

true. understood completely
