    I've been selling on Fiverr for around two months now and have reached the point of around 47 orders.

    I currently write 300 words for $5 on Fiverr and the gig has been doing very well, with all my reviews being 5 stars.

    However, I have started to notice that instead of being happy whenever a new gig, I get annoyed and I get the gig done the last hour its due.

    Here is my question.

    1. Should I get to LVL 2 and then try some other gigs out - other than writing - and see if I can make some money there?

    2. Should I just sell this account now with 30 x 5 star reviews and run away with the nice money? I have around $100 in pending and have earned $400 so far with 47 orders.

    3. What other choices do I have? I'm kind of sick of the stupid buyer's on Fiverr these days, since I write an article for them according to the directions they provide me and then they request a modification with a completely new instruction. This becomes really repetitive when I start to get a few orders a day...

    The reason I want to stop writing on Fiverr regardless of my pretty decent rate is because I started a project with some other members here and I write around 3-4k word articles a day with images + tables which take up most of my stamina. just a FYI.

    You're getting burned out.

    You can do a few things at this point:

    • Raise your prices. I've seen people charge $5 per 50 words on Fiverr and they aren't hurting for customers. (I saw one guy charge $5 per 10 words.)
    • Pause the gig and work on your other project until you feel ready to open it again.
    • Hire a freelance writer to work for you while you go do something else (not sure how feasible this is since he probably wouldn't get paid much with the rate you're charging).
    • Kick Fiverr in the balls.
    • Quit.
    Or you can reach level 2 and go do something else.

    But I'd advise you to rest. I used to work on and turn in my projects at the last minute too. I wasn't charging enough. I was doing too much work for too little money and it was stressing me out. So my focus and quality started to suffer.

    I know how it feels. I am also a lvl2 seller but inactive since 2 years. Money in pieces stress me out always.
    If you want to sell your account then sell it after you reach lvl2 because first you are very near to reach that level and second you will get good price for lvl2 account based on your rating.

    Selling is not a choice - I've already bought fiverr accounts level 2 seller with great reviews and after running it half a year they found out somehow that changed location, paypal, country and so on and they blocked that account - and ask tons of stuff related with first registered paypal of that account, owner of that paypal details, first transaction details to a first used paypal on that account and only after I got all info they released my funds - so I'll offer everyone NOT TO RISK and NOT TO BUY fiverr accounts because ban hammer there is swinging and banning for no reasons..

    Definitely go with number 1 where the gigs only require you to copy paste something or upload a file that you send to everyone. I wouldn't do any work or outsourcing on fiverr just because of the stupid buyers. If they complain I can just refund them and move on without wasting money or time.

    See if you can outsource your work, it'll be much easier for you and you won't have to get annoyed and tired.
