    Hi there,
    I was ordering a big project from fiverr by ordering multiple gigs from a specific seller. We came to an agreement to order 4 gigs a day. He is telling me now to rate him after 4 gigs because the money does not go in his account unless I rate him. Is that true. The only reason I am not rating him is to secure myself. If he messes me over I will negatively rate him. I don't want to give positive reviews before hand.

    No this is not true. He is only telling you that to gain rating for his or her gig. I got a gig that had 10 orders and only 5 of them left a rating but I still received the money.

    I can tell you that sellers get paid regardless of whether customers leave feedback ratings or not. In fact, most buyers don't bother.

    Hope it goes well. Be careful ordering 'off-book' on fiverr. If you need a $20/day gig then the seller should be able to create the correct gig extras for you, and not ask you to order multiple times.

    Haven't used Fiverr in a year or two now but last I recall there was a 2 day period after completing the gig before the 15 day period would start. If you rate them positive it skips that first two day wait period and goes straight to the 15.

    When you deliver an order, it takes 3 days to be marked as complete. If a buyer marks an order as complete, it speeds the process up. Ratings are optional and don't speed up payments.
