    Why don't you give it some time to settle? They say themselves the maintenance is still ongoing and you may face some issues..

    I also wasn't able to but until 8 hours ago. Contact the support, they might get it fixed because they are not that great. I have one 3x order that is never clearing, I contacted the support twice and they just tell me to wait.

    i was doing pretty well on fiverr for while there, but orders are starting to go down. Yet I'm still getting the same amount of traffic to my gigs.

    I didn't get any order last week. I got 2 orders yesterday and none today. When will this maintainence be over? Also I think they should add a forum too.

    Yeah this is ridiculous for a company just receiving 15 million more in angel investment... you'd think they'd hire some better programmers or at least a few more of them... i couldnt withdraw money for 5 days either... just kept getting the run around with support too

    I agree with you too. Or they might have new programmers who are messing with the site. Who knows. But what matters is clients are losing track of some of the best providers.

    I'm not able to cancel my orders and buyers are not able to mark the orders as complete. It's really becoming difficult to do business there.

    I started a gig 2 weeks ago and was getting 2 orders a day, my gig was the 2nd "auto" result on fiver for the keywords and went to the 4th page after the maintenance. Since i'm pretty new there i don't know if that's normal or due to the maintenance.
    Either way after the maintenance I've been receiving 1 order/day, probably cause i'm still in the 7th position for the "Rating" results.

    Also quick question, when do i get promoted to level 1? I completed 22 orders with 15 positive reviews (7 other orders weren't rated). So i was wondering if it will come automatically after a specific time or if i have to contact fiverr to request it.


    Little update, i got 3 orders today :?

    well i guess it's game over for middle tier seller now, top seller will continue their game with even more sales, while fiverr fak up sub categories to try to make new gig have more appearance, but guess what, all new gig shown were some peoples that have 20 account and spam 20 same gigis on each of the acc.

    All these big companies are the same. They've just got a ton of investment and have people being paid to do something. So they sit and decide how to justify their salaries and come up with a way to 'improve' a service that was working perfectly well and what made them so successful, so quickly. And they break it.

    Hopefully this is costing them sales too.

    The UK's Royal Mail service last October decided to 'upgrade their online website to improve customer experience'. I send 25 to 30 parcels a day over the Christmas period and I print off my postage online via their website and take them to the sorting office directly, nice and quick. Their upgrade knocked their online system offline until January! ALL the businesses like me had to queue in post offices for hours because of their f*ck up. The chairman had to keep posting updates basically saying for two months 'they are doing their best'. And no, the system is still no better...

    The BBC 'upgraded' their sport's section some months ago. They have a section on it that shows the football scores live and they have managed to break this and it is still not working correctly and you have to manually refresh the page now to get the latest scores. They are taking so much flak over this. It worked perfectly well before, but they have a lot of people being paid a lot of money and these twats have to justify their existence so they break things!

    BTW the BBC have agreed to cut the costs of their website by....... £36 million ($57m) it currently spends £137 million ($216m) on it's website yearly. All funded by British taxpayers, great work if you can get it.

    And on to Google....... need I say anymore?

    Yeah same here
    I didn't know about the update thing as it's just a "side line" project for me (Fiverr)
    I thought that i could make a couple of extras $ per month without working a lot with them but now it has stopped. Also, the mails get delivered slowly ?

    The update is still going on I think as is clear from the profile page link.
    Patience is the only way out.
