    this guys from fiverr just degraded my level 2 account to 0.

    i did easy 50 gigs the last 2 month..... they are so fucked up.
    yesterday i wanted to add a extra on one of my gigs and was unable because of some fucking messages that something is wrong on my entry text but could not find out.

    the take 20% and treat you like shit.

    i wish there would be a real alternative to this.

    two months for 200$? You should spend your time working on other areas, Fiverr will not make you decent profits, never, and you will work a lot with a bunch of cheap people. Buy some domains, setup some websites, make them grow! Stop wasting time on fiverr.

    Fiverr has really went downhill in the past 5 months or so.
    I would invest my time in other things to.

    Sorry, but thats bullshit.

    You are not able to criticize, without knowing the time effort for full filling Fiverr sales for each seller.

    I need for the most of my GIG's only 2-3 mins. for complete then. 60 Mins / hour = 20 GIGs = hourly rate of 80 USD (in theory, for sure) and this is not a "decent profit"?

    @topic
    There isn't a real alternative, all clone sites have ~0.00000001% traffic about Fiverr.

    You are absolutly right, the service the last 3-6 months is getting really worse.

    Either you're a fast typist or you're not counting your time answering their dumbass questions all day and night. Even if you can knock out a gig in 2-3 mins,many of them will tie you up for 10-20 mins answering their stupid inquiries. If you don't kiss their ass and answer all their questions then the negs will cost you plenty.

    I encouraged a nephew that is a total computer nerd to do Fiverr. I set him up and got him rolling to a Level 2 and after a month he said screw this, I'd rather flip burgers at McD than deal with all these assholes. He's still got a 100% feedback account with a couple hundred reviews. It's an ongoing joke now when he bitches about not having money. I tell him there's always fiverr and he shuts up and says he'd rather be homeless.

    It might be for some people but most can find more sane methods to make money, those buyers will drive about anyone insane.

    There are other sites besides Fiverr, aka "Fiverr Clones" like MyCheapJobs (or MCJ as one poster put it) that aren't as restricted as Fiverr. 1. You can list your job for more than $5 and 2. Get to know the site owner personally so problems don't happen. I have personal knowledge that many sellers are now making a full time income on MyCheapJobs. The site grossed $12K last month. Gig price starts at default of $20.00.

    I don't trust Fiverr. Too cheap. Nothing I need done can possibly be done well for $5.00. Not really interested in hiring someone that is willing to work for $4.00 either.

    I don't have written, that i have writing GIGs.
    I try to have clear and direct descriptions and also clear instructions.
    For answers i have saved answers and i don't answer all questions (upfront).

    For sure, if you write articles, paint something etc... then u need more time.

    But its not true, that Fiverr is at all worthless.

    Edit:
    looool, after to much criticism, the MCJ guy now send other people to post his link? :)

    Yeah - I wasted so much time on writing articles for people - It took me 3 months to gain £150/$280

    Now i'm searching for a better way and if i get stuck i'll go back to going them gigs.

    Also Fiverr is of course a waste of time. After i got to Level 3 for some reason they took 2 dollars instead of 1 from my sales because people were giving me crazy amounts of orders..

So then he Skype he friend Jim and say "Hay Jim, you have chance to promote your site here" but Jim say "No, they already tire of me doing this all the time." so then I say "No problem, Jim. I post for you, as favor. See me & Jim, we talky-talk on high-tech software call "Skype" you look you see you find Skype someday too you talky-talk to Jim too like heapum-big cheese like me but no you don't so it look to you just like Jim make other people post his link, but no me likey-like Jim, he good guy I do this as favor for him.

    See me professional writer to, I write heapum big-time words all over town nothing but words, makey-make big money with words but not with Fiverr. Fiverr small-time chump-change place only low-end, no-talent writers that no talky-talk good Engrish go. You get Skype, you talky-talk with Jim maybe someday you make more money too, driver around town in nice car and have woman that smell nice too, and not fart so much.

    Level 3 on Fiverr? smile.... you only can get Level 1, Level 2 and Top rated Seller, but no Level 3 is possible :)

    Please show me/us some screens, that they took 2 instead of 1 USD.


    loooool B.Friendly. I like true people, really.
    I can't say if he is a good guy or not, its also not important (for me) but his style of "advertising" here is not the correct way and absolutly to flashy (my opinion).

    It's an advertising forum, what do you expect? I don't see the "flash". He's only as far away as my Skype IM button. I also get the huge negative reaction to WF-style WSO's, and I've never got that off MCJ. Seems pretty straightforward and down to earth to me.

    There's no law that says you can't list a gig with more than one site. No one said it was either/or, i.e. either Fiverr or MCJ (or any other clone). Why not do all of them? Not like it costs money to list the gig and what's the worst that can happen? You ask $15 on MCJ that you would normally only get $4.00 for on Fiverr and maybe you make some money. Most Fiverr is trash. There's a reason why it's cheap. Talented people don't work for peanuts. People with highly marginal English writing skills might HAVE to work on Fiverr, but that doesn't mean everyone else is condemned to the same fate. Plus if/when the gig goes wrong, what's the value of my time? Write a negative review? Please. They can pay me money to write any kind of review, negative or otherwise. I have better things to do. People that have an appreciation for the value of their own time do not waste that time screwing around with chump-change people doing chump-change jobs for chump-change. There's a reason why they call it "chump-change" first because it's "change" and not actually money (as in DOLLARS) and second because it's for CHUMPS, which are elderly chimps.

    Many people do not know that chumps are actually elderly chimps that have been doing stupid things for no money for so long that they have turned old and grey, but have never gotten any wiser, otherwise they would be known as "elderly chimps", but since they haven't learned anything there is a special word for them called "chumps" and they are the ones that have always worked for almost no money.

    i dont answer questions there. only if i am bored and they are short to answer. on the beginning i where answering them i found out that many who ask dont order anyway. so i just skip them.

    i mean there are guys asking like how many backlinks i need for first place for the following keywords ... adding like 20 kw.
    i mean for sure i analyze 20 kw for 4$ ...

    just skip the questions - do the orders which are comming in. for me it was easy money but now i am getting really pissed on the automated limitations on adding or changing a gig. and now the downgrade.

    i wrote them - not nice - like can you count further than 10 .. then you will see that i eays did 50 orders in the last 2 month ..... blabla

    i took all my money out there because you never know maybe they close my account. you never know

    Fiverr is not about the fiver. It's about the upsell. Although they are even trying to stop that with all the "no off site shit" message.

    Can understand. I 'was' a L2 seller on Fiverr. Closed my gigs when a buyer placed an order including extras. The whole gig came to $25 and he ordered the same stuff twice. After completing the gig, 2 days later Fiverr cancels the gig. Doesn't bother to inform me. Upon checking with support, they tell me the buyer used a payment method outside of the usual methods and fiverr wasn't able to collect the funds.Pricks didn't even offer an apology.Not to forget few days later I had problems withdrawing funds and they started giving lame excuses which was the last straw.Its sad that they get media coverage for being so cool, but sadly the problems they cause to sellers is seldom highlighted.

    since fiverr even tell me why they take away the level ... they say its a computer programm algo which does that and there are differnt possibilitys ?? ... great answer so i came back qiuite hard with this shit the answer was like deliver you orders on time - have a good communication and maybe , we dont promise, you get your level back ... yeahh right you idiots. thats the way you treat the guys which bring you money.

    which fiver clone really has traffic and sells.
    thanks
