Fiverr is a Fail

Hi, I’m DJ Knupp! Many of you know me in USA and Canada. I’ve been a good seller on Fiverr until 2 days ago where their unfair and unprofessional childish team decided not to reward my efforts and to evaluate badly on purpose my account and decrease

Fast, Efficient and a Pleasure To Use

Fiverr serves the purpose of getting jobs done quickly, so you won’t have to go through long interview processes and tests, like other outsourcing platforms do. With Fiverr, gigs are purchased “off the shelf”, and delivered within a reasonably short term.

 

Once a seller has committed to purchasing a gig from you, the automated notifications will help guide you through to the end of the gig. So, for example, let’s say someone bought a gig from you but you need further information from them to complete the order. Such request can be sent to the buyer automatically, keeping both sides of the deal on track.

If a buyer has a dispute, they get a 3 days time period before the gig automatically gets marked as complete.

Finally, the rating and feedback feature is one of the biggest advantages of using Fiverr. Not only does it help you choose your sellers, but it also motivates sellers to get a quality job done, or if you’re not satisfied, they’ll refund you to avoid getting a negative review.

 

Seller profiles include info like the percentage of positive feedback, seller’s membership duration, average response times and main target countries. These stats are worth keeping on-top of as they could make or break your Fiverr profile and future performance.

If It Ain't Broke Don’t Fix it – Simple & Hassle Free

Fiverr has maintained the same style since its first launch going back 5 years ago. Albeit they have undergone a few tweaks here and there to keep the site looking fresh, clean and modern for the user. The interface is easy to use, whether you are in the process of posting a job, or keeping track of a job’s progress. They also have a mobile app that cuts response times to the minimum, though it may not be as fully featured as the desktop version.

The only area where I see this getting messy is if you do a lot of buying and selling on the platform, because you are essentially using one account for both options.

Looking for a gig is a piece of cake, everything is nicely sectioned off into categories so you can head straight to your chosen area. When you are in your desired category, you can then filter down into sub-categories and sort by recommended gigs, high rating, express gigs, and new gigs.

This usability factor really plays a big part in sifting through the 3 million active gigs that are currently on Fiverr, to find what you are looking for quickly and easily.

Lacking Real Support & Hard To Find Tutorials

Fiverr don’t make it easy for you to contact them, so finding any kind of real support quite difficult. In the main navigation on the homepage you have a community link which takes you to the blog and forum, and it’s only within here you can find a “Customer Support” link in the header.

Don’t let that fool you though, as there is no direct email address, contact form or telephone number. However, you do get a knowledge base of How-To articles which help you with anything, from creating a gig to troubleshooting issues.

  • No Mailing Address
  • Hard to find any support unless you click around

    Cheap and Cheerful

    Fiverr got it’s name from the cost of the gigs you see on the site, $5. The payment policies for Fiverr are simple and straightforward, there are no catches or fees, or anything that has you scratching your head.

    A gig is listed at $5, with extra options that the seller can add to the job to earn more, should the customer choose to take them.

    If you’re a seller, be prepared to give Fiverr 20% of your earnings. You then have to take into account the fact that you will also be charged $1 by Fiverr for withdrawals that are over $50, and 2% for anything under that amount, so it’s best to wait until you have accumulated $50 in revenue.

    Buyers also pay Fiver a considerable commission. All purchases are subject to a processing fee of $1 on purchases up to and including $20, and 5% on purchases above $20.

    With commissions on both ends of the deal, you can see how Fiverr makes it’s income.

    Review Summary by Max Anderson

    4.5/5

    There are plenty of Freelance sites out there today, from UpWork, to Freelancer. Fiverr is much different to these sites and services though, because they make finding or creating a gig quick and easy.

    There are no talks of contracts or interviews, no waiting around for the work to be done, it’s just a quick and easy process of buying a gig or selling a gig, and prices are set to a basic $5 per gig. There are some silly gigs that have been listed for fun, but there slogan is “Buy. Sell. Have Fun”. Amidst the gigs listed for “I will call you and sing Happy Birthday” there are some serious gigs that will be a helpful addition to your small business needs.

    You never know, you could find a freelancer on Fiverr and go on to build up a solid work-relationship moving forward.
