The 20% fee. It’s ridiculous. It has always been.
It’s more about the buyers than the sellers. Whenever a buyer wants to cancel an order for whatever reason, If the seller has funds available in the fiverr account, the order will be cancelled.
Also, You can’t take my money that I earned from another buyer and use it to refund someone else. How is this even allowed?!
The forum. It used to be a lot better. I don’t see how this new forum is an improvement.
It’s much cleaner, but way more interactive (personal opinion)
I personally rarely use it now.
The website itself has been getting a lot more issues lately. I think it’s the server.
The search functionality has been disabled for WAY too long and it’s causing me so many problems, I can’t imagine the amount of inconvenience cause to other, more busy sellers.
and there is no update from fiverr admins?
The social media is only used to promote their own propaganda.
The Inbox. It’s just unreliable when sending long messages.
ALOT of times my messages that I have sent, were never received on the other side… (it was mostly when the messages were 500+ characters long)
Same with the android app, messages don’t go through sometimes. even though the app shows it did.
The search algorithm. Many talented sellers with 1000+ reviews (like myself) get absolutely no reputation.
Try searching for “logo” or “logo design” and see the gibberish
The Buyer Request section. Which is full of sellers advertising their services, people asking for specific sellers, saying they paid someone and didn’t get delivery. It’s like there is absolutely no supervision.
I could go on, but what’s the point.
This was my first escrow service that I joined as a freelancer.
It feels like if fiverr was run by more capable management, this platform could have been much better.
I’m glad I found better alternatives. I really hope it gets better.
