Using Seller Level Status
This involves searching for highly experienced and serious sellers who offer top-quality services to deal with.
Here is how to go about it.
Fiverr classifies sellers in various levels starting with the lowest(Entry) to the highest (Top-rated).
All the levels include;
1. Level 0
2. Level 1
3. Level 2
These classification are based on these following criteria by fiverr:
1. High Quality service
2. On-time delivery
3. Great Customer satisfaction
4. Other factors e.g. duration as a seller, order cancellation, response rate, ratings etc.
Every month, fiverr classifies these sellers and awards higher levels to sellers who have done exceedingly well in those criteria listed above.
And these are the sellers most buyers order from, so it is highly recommended you go for them too.
I mean level 2 and top-rated sellers.
Even, if you observe the sellers services first pages very well, you will notice that majority of (level 2 and top-rated) occupy the first few pages.
Only extremely very few level 1 sellers occupy.
The below images speaks more on it;
As you can see, they are mainly top-rated and level 2 sellers.
Fiverr does so because such sellers are of high quality and so, they can be easily found by buyers, thus indirectly offering buyers the opportunity to locate them easily and deal business with them.
As for the level 0 and 1 sellers, it is up to them to work hard to boost their level up.
If you arent satisfied with the first page, you can visit the 2nd or 3rd pages to search through.
Just scroll down.
Before we proceed to the next step, I will be presenting you a very special gift either as a buyer or a non-skill first-time user.
But i will kept that as a secret and reveal it towards the end of this writeup.
Just keep your fingers crossed.

This is very necessary to avoid time-waste and order cancellations.
And also for the buyers and sellers to understanding each other’s needs, requirements and expectations.
Sellers Star Ratings

Such reviews can be positive and negative as shown below respectively.
And the more the positive reviews from buyers, the higher the star ratings of the sellers.
So what does this tells us?
It simply means that sellers with high ratings are 100% exceptionally good at their skills, hence the need for buyers to patronize such sellers.
For example, let take a look at this level 2 logo design seller (bibbiswa) below.
He has reviews from over 606 buyers of which 566 rated him excellently with 5 stars while 24 gave him 4 stars.
