The Good

Fiverr was made famous by its innovative $5 per project platform. Users can visit the marketplace and find almost anything (testimonial videos, birthday wishes, etc.) for only $5. Fiverr also introduced add ons to help registered users add additional revenue to their $5 projects.

In January 2012, Fiverr launched Levels, a reputation-based promotion system. After sellers successfully complete at least 10 transactions, they unlock advanced tools to offer add-on services and increase the value. Now, close to 50% of the services offered on Fiverr sell for more than $5. Approximately 15% of the sellers consider Fiverr a primary source of income.

Fiverr has not released any public information on their user base; however, Fiverr.com was ranked on the 200 most popular web sites in the world. Thus we can deduce that Fiverr receives millions of visit each month. We placed an order within the Fiverr platform and were pleasantly surprised with the quality of work, speed, and ease-of-payment.

The Bad

Fiverr take $1 out of every $5 order or in other words a 20% fee. The 20% fee is pretty steep compared to other freelancer and marketplace platforms. Be aware that many of the freelancers are offering the same services to hundreds of people diminishing the overall credibility of the user. For example, we’ve seen testimonial videos by Fiverr users for hundreds of products that they’ve never used.

The Bottom Line

Fiverr is a great marketplace for small Gigs and projects. While the price is cheap, remember that you get what you pay for. If you’re looking for important, technical work we recommend using our other top-rated companies. For small, quick, and inexpensive projects we recommend Fiverr.

Fees

All purchases have a fee. For purchases up to $10, Fiverr charges $.50. For purchases above $10, they charge 5%.

    Fiverr has lead to us finding some great talent at my jobs over the past years. Also, I’m on Fiverr myself and I’ve been able to get some great work from them. The concept is easy, it’s a good communication system and everything is done in real time. I never have to worry about not getting paid or any changes in price after we commit to something!

    We use Fiverr at my job sometimes to get some content when we need it and we have never had a problem. I really like it and the work that the people do. Plus you can pick and choose who you work with. I would def recommend them.
