The Hidden Website that allow you to make money online from your skills

 Is this the first time you have heard the word “Fiverr”? Yes? Well, I am not surprised at all. Because 3 out of 5 people don’t know what Fiverr exactly is and how it works.

I am a Seller on Fiverr. I have been working on this platform for the past 1 year and it is providing me enough livelihood while working online in the comfort of my home.

What is Fiverr?

Fiverr is an online marketplace where people buy and sell different digital services.  Most of the services on Fiverr start just at $5, hence the name of the company (5-err). Lots of people buy and sell services on Fiverr every single day.

Founded in 2010, Fiverr has grown to become one of the largest websites that directly connect people across the globe for selling and buying different services.

Whether you are a content writer, graphic designer, programmer, digital marketer, artist, or translator, Fiverr has a place for you. It provides you the opportunity to share your talent with the online world and make money while doing what you love.

How Does Fiverr Work?

Before diving into the other details, let’s first discuss some glossary terms used by Fiverr to get a better understanding of things.

Gig: A service offered on Fiverr is called gig.

Seller: A user who offers gigs on Fiverr is called a seller. If you are looking for work and you sign up on Fiverr for selling your services, you are a “seller” on Fiverr.

Buyer: A user who buys gigs on Fiverr is called a buyer. If you are looking to purchase a gig on Fiverr, you are a “buyer”.

Order: When a buyer purchases a gig from a seller, it is called an order.

Fiverr is a two-way communication platform where both buyers and sellers coordinate with each other for their working needs. A buyer can browse through the profiles of sellers to find the best match for his work. Similarly, a seller can look through buyer requests to find the work that goes with his skills.

Once a buyer and seller find each other, they create an order and set a specified time, goal, and price for their project. After a seller completes his work, he delivers that work to the buyer. If the buyer approves the work, he marks the order as “complete” otherwise he asks for revision. Once the order is completed, the seller gets his money (the price decided by both buyer and seller before placing the order).

Processing Fee and Service Fee on Fiverr

A buyer pays Fiverr for the orders in advance. That’s why Fiverr prompts buyers to carefully analyze the gig and read its description before placing an order. When a buyer gets ready to make a purchase, he proceeds to checkout. All purchases have processing fees, $1 on purchases up to and including $20 and 5% on purchases above $20.

When a seller completes an order, Fiverr adds the money that the buyer paid to the seller account. Fiverr deducts a service fee of 20% on each order completed by the seller. For example, after completing an order of $5, you will get $4 and Fiverr will deduct $1 as a service fee. If you complete an order of $10, you get $8 and lose $2.

Besides that, when a buyer marks the order complete, he also leaves a review on that order. This review is publically shown on your profile and you cannot edit or remove it. If you have good reviews on your profile, more buyers will want to work with you and will place more orders on your gigs.

So, that’s how the Fiverr game works!
