Lots of us sellers don’t pay any attention at all at VIP buyer insignia.
For one, from personal experience, many of us know that it doesn’t take much to get that crown and that it doesn’t mean at all that someone is a nice person and pleasant to work with. Some of us have encountered people with a buyer crown who should come with a warning sign instead.
Then, most of us don’t change our prices depending on who orders but how much work/time the job requires.
Find yourself some reliable sellers of the kind who don’t care about ‘preferred buyer status’ and deliver quality work no matter if for their cheapest or most expensive gig tier. There are many serious sellers here who take pride in their work and give a $10 order just as much relative attention and time as a $100 or $1000 order.
But make sure to not confuse a higher price because your job requires more work than the gig sells with perceived up-selling because of your buyer status (some examples: when my gig says it’s for Word files and to please contact me for other file formats, it sometimes will stay at the same price, but other times, if it’s some file format that’s more time-intensive to work with, my quote might be higher;
if one buyer has a children’s book to translate and the next one a text about nuclear power plants, one of the texts does not necessarily have to be but might be more expensive (the children’s book, because there are rhymes ) because it will take me more time than “standard texts” which the gig price is calculated for).
In fact, if anything, a buyer telling me they are wealthy or showing me copies of transactions might make me tell them I’m sorry but I can’t help them as I’m booked out currently.
As if that would change the way I treat them or anything. You tell me what you need, I tell you if I can do it, what it will cost and how long it will take, and you can take it or leave it. That’s it.
‘Buyer status’ is totally irrelevant for me and I’m pretty sure to many sellers I got to know a bit here, too.
Maybe it gets you VIP treatment with Fiverr itself, faster customer support or something, I don’t know, and perhaps ‘special treatment’ from some kinds of sellers, but I think you can be rather certain that the majority of OK sellers just doesn’t care.
However, if you’d like to try with a new account, that’s no problem, you just need to make sure that you first close the current account before you open a new one, as multiple accounts at the same time is against the terms and can and often does get people banned.
And you can’t use the same email as far as the site info says (though it might be possible if you contact support beforehand to assist with that).
