How Does Fiverr Work?
Fiverr is free to join for both buyers and sellers and provides all the tools needed for both parties to succeed. Buyers (i.e. clients) can sign up, search for services, find and pay freelancers, and get their jobs done quickly and easily. Sellers (i.e. freelancers) can sign up, create gig listings on the desktop site, and then manage sales, message clients, and get paid on either the desktop site or mobile apps.
All gigs on Fiverr start at a base price of $5, but sellers can set their prices far above this if they want.

Fiverr is a good platform with decent earning potential
Fiverr is a good platform with decent earning potential, if you know how to use it. You also need to know who you do and don't want to work for, as some clients can be tire kickers (just waste your time, and try to nickle and dime you).
I like that they have an app, which allows me to quickly respond to inquiries.
Responding quickly is important because the longer you wait the less likely you are to get the job.
It is also important because Fiverr displays a “typically replies in X hours”, on each of your gigs, so people are more likely to message you if they know that you are responsive.
Their platform is slightly buggy sometimes, especially their messaging system. It's not a huge deal, but it can be annoying.
They also take 20% of your earnings, which can seem like a lot. However, you have to remember that the reason you're earning that money, is their marketing…
Pick a service that you know people are buying (how many orders are in the queue of the top competitors?). Even though you can make money selling obscure services, it is more difficult.
Fiverr is a good platform for the seller except...
Fiverr is a good platform for the seller except that it's very biased to the buyer hence payment not completely secure. You get gigs according to your review. It has good community and support. The seller can charge a minimum of $5 per gig. It also has unlimited earning opportunity since there are many services to offer. Its also ideal for beginners.
Fivver is a platform that assures payment for the work done. With the right reputation you get very many clients .the clients choose freelancers based on reviews. There is the ability to learn new things
It mostly Favours the seller. it has faulty search feature that makes your reliable gigs unsearchable.
Luck applies because you should be lucky to be picked out of other 100 freelancers with the same rating as you.
Put up a Gig Video .This impresses clients. Get the Fiverr app. This will help you get Clients orders at the Go. Make sure you have a sensible delivery time. Make use of SEO to make your profile easily seen.
One of the downsides to working with Fiverr is the fact that freelancers have to pay 20% fee per income.
Accessible. No country restrictions. Good refund policy. Scam free
Creep scope enabling. Little help to sellers regarding buyers that want free information. High cut
Create more gig in other skill sets. Expand to other sites if you want to make this a full-time gig. All skill-sets are profitable, it just take the right client to get lift-off.
Good place to make money with expertise, but...
Good place to make money with expertise, but its largely underpaid. It's also very difficult to get the first job, there's no way to prove customers should trust you.
Large market place. Ensures clients have money before working
Hard to get first job. Can be hash on freelancers. Accounts can be banned with little explanation
Be patient. Make sure you set up your gig professionally. Make sure you get 5 star reviews in your first job. Send requests to buyers as often as you can and review your gigs as often as you can.
It's a solid way to earn side income but the competition is pretty tight.
Some clients pay extremely well and some clients are long term.
Biased algorithm. Tight competition. Lack of clients
Be patient, it may take a while before you land your first gig. Consult an expert to design your gig. Regularly update your gigs to reflect recent skills like SEO gained.
