    Just saw this new feature on Fiverr - "Top rated seller"
    Some sellers have a Top Rated Seller honor by their gig like the one's you might have seen in YouTube.

    These people can charge more than 5$ by offering some extra services than the core. Moreover, people directly have the option of ordering the same gig upto 10 times! Some issues which definitely needed a look for quite some time.

    Following are the basis of it as Fiverr puts it:

    1. Receive postive reviews regularly
    2. Always deliver on time
    3. Communicate and be nice
    4. Stay out of trouble, follow the rules


    Any suggestions/experiences as to how much reviews are enough or what they mean by "Stay out of trouble."
    If I "mutually cancelled" the order with my client, do I still abide by the 4th point?

    If you mutually agree with your buyer you should have no problems. But most people here use fiverr to get clients (to start working of fiverr), which is against their policy.
    I always expected that at some point they would remove the 5$ barrier...

    I generally use caution to get a client - I contact him from outside only when I've had atleast a couple of successful gigs with him and he has some confidence in me by then.

    Btw, with the new "Top Seller Rating", it is like all your gigs get "sort of" featured with the honour badge even if you have just launched it. Has become very similar to the YouTube Partner program!

    I wonder if there is some market beginning for trading of fiverr "Top Seller" accounts or "post my gig under your profile where it will get featured" kind of stuff!
