I’ve got one of those pops again from Fiverr, which thankfully, I’ve just copied and pasted into a word document due to the following:
“By now, most of you made most, some or all the changes we discussed. If you have not made any changes to your account and Gig(s), please contact me ASAP, as your Gig(s) will disappear from our search. I am here to help you grow your business and become more successful, and I kindly ask that you work with me and be open to changes. Your ranking will remain the same and could move higher, only if you have made ALL changes - not some, part or “thinking about it”. There is a reason why I have been repeatedly asking you to make these changes.”
- So now it is a requirement to have a gig packages. (Amongst other things). If you don’t your gigs go from Fiverr’s search.
AND THEN THERE IS POINT NUMBER 8 IN THE GOOGLE DOCS GUIDELINE THEY JUST SENT ME:
"8. Prevent cancellations, even mutual
Why is this important?: Because a cancellation is a bad experience for buyers and results in a waste of time for the seller. As even if the buyer is fully refunded, they lost something they will never get back: their time. Also, as a seller, you will lose time and resources when cancelling an order. So we want our sellers to prevent cancellations as much as possible."
ARE YOU SERIOUS?
Is Fiverr now saying that sellers who cancel gigs will have gigs removed from search?
Really? Come on.
Okay, wait, apparently, I’m just getting this because I am in the Seller Success program. Still, though, this is really peeing me off. Here you see, is everything I need to do before December 12th to keep working on Fiverr:
“This means (but not limited to) that all Gigs, especially your best seller is priced accordingly (higher than the basic $5), you use triple packages (and your package titles show the type of service you offer) , your use the FAQ, have work samples, videos, your descriptions are edited for content and grammar and your profile is updated. There are no exceptions and ever single aspect of your account and Gig(s) needs to be updated.”
Sooo… Fiverr is now saying that I am not allowed to cancel gigs, not allowed to offer services at $5, and not allowed to not use packages.
AWESOME. Now, just how much acid is everyone at Fiverr putting in their coffee every morning?
