Fiverr is one of the largest marketplaces in the world for digital services. One can sell and buy digital services through fiverr by creating the gigs. A service offered on Fiverr is called a “Gig”. You can start selling/buying with a minimum order of $5.

On all purchases Fiverr charges purchasing fee. Orders upto and including $20 are charged with $1 and orders above it are charged with 5% of the total bill

I heard about fiverr when I left my full time job for further studying before starting up my own business, and when I was looking for freelance jobs to cope with my monthly expenses.

Since Fiverr is a very huge marketplace and there are plenty of designers and digital service providers working on a same vertical, there’s a huge competition too for the common services like designing websites and designing logos.


Now, If you want to earn some good amount you must try selling services which are exclusive and are less available in the market, in that case you will be able to charge more amount.

There are several other things which you can start selling on Fiverr and you can make easy money out of it. You must write down your skills in a list and start researching for few hours before creating any gig.

Step 3: Publish Gig

After successfully adding the images and other required details that you want to display on your gig. Save and Submit the gig for start selling.

Since I was studying about ecommerce and digital marketing that time, I started creating gigs related to website designing & digital marketing only. Luckily I got my 1st order within a week worth $250 and the work was to create a website on wordpress (which I was studying that time) for selling online digital services.

1 thing that was disappointing to me that time was the amount that Fiverr charged me per project was 20% due to which I just got $200 out $250 that I made.

But a good thing about Fiverr is you can collect your revenue either with Paypal or with Payoneer which in this case is more beneficial as compared to the Paypal

Overal Fiverr is a good source of earning money online by just sitting at home. And I have seen people earning thousands of dollar per month here. All you need is a proper planning and catchy gigs.
