    Before you submit your bid, you will have the option to contact the buyer and ask questions to get all the information needed to create the most relevant offer.

  3. Click Convert.

    Please note: The buyer's brief is sent to a few selected sellers, and then they choose and accept the best offer based on their needs.

Keep track of the status of your match

Here are the different statuses of your matches and offers:

  • Opportunity
    This means that a buyer’s brief is currently active and accepting offers—time to send your offer!

  • Canceled
    This means that a buyer has chosen to stop receiving offers for their brief—it's too late to send an offer.

  • Accepted
    This means that a buyer has accepted your custom offer for their brief—get cracking!

  • Closed
    This means that a buyer has accepted another seller's offer—try again next time.

  • Offer created
    This means that you have made an offer, but the buyer hasn’t accepted any offers they have received yet—you have a chance of being chosen!

FAQs

1. What’s the difference between the previous Buyer Request feature and the matching feature?
The matching feature provides a more accommodating and beneficial service in terms of the buyer you’re matched with, the quality of service you delivered, and your price range.

 

2. How will this new matching feature benefit me?
The process of getting matched with a buyer is focused on tailoring your availability, pricing, service, and skillset with their needs.
Since buyers are only matched to the highest quality services and most relevant sellers, this helps narrow down the competition in the Marketplace.

 

3. How can I get matched with a buyer?
Matches are based on the compatibility between a buyer’s requirements and your service and expertise. Since buyers are only matched with high-quality sellers, Fiverr uses a wide range of quality criteria that are taken into consideration to determine seller eligibility.

 

4. What happens if I get a brief opportunity?
If you get matched with a buyer’s brief, you’ll get a notification message saying Your service is a match! (Well done!).
Click the notification, and choose either Create Offer or Not Interested.

Please note: You are one of a few select sellers to get matched with the buyer’s brief. Be sure to give a competitive and well-structured offer according to a buyer’s needs, to stand the best chance of your offer being chosen.

 

5. Why did I receive a brief?
Our smart algorithm matched you, your service, and your availability to a buyer’s brief requirements.
Not a good match? Let us know why when you click Not Interested.

 

6. From a performance perspective, what happens if I don’t accept a brief?
Your performance metrics won’t be affected or impacted if you decline a brief.

 

7. Do I have to match the buyer’s exact proposed budget when I create a Custom Offer?
Since you are automatically matched with buyers who have your budget in mind, you’ll be matched according to your Gig price ranges. However, you're free to create an Offer with any budget relevant to what you offer.

 

8. Can I create a milestone/subscription offer?
Yes, you can use Milestones or a Subscription offer if it suits the requirements.
