We recently came upon Fiverr, a website that people can use to buy or sell services for the flat rate of $5. The service categories range from Graphics & Design to customizable gifts/entertainment to the Fun & Bizarre category. Need a JPEG turned into an eps file or a new logo? Or how about a personalized message sent to a friend from someone while wearing a banana suit? Chances are, Fiverr has it! We decided to hire Fiverr to make one of our staff member into a Simpson’s character. See it here.
To order something from Fiverr, you must pay $5 by PayPal or with a credit card. While your order is in progress, you can track the seller’s work, exchange files, and communicate with them. You have 48 hours after the delivery of your product or service to ask for changes or corrections from the seller. You can provide feedback on the quality of work of every seller you do business with.
In order to sell something on Fiverr, you create a “gig,” which is a small service you are willing to perform for One Fiver ($5). Post it on the website. You will be notified when someone orders your service. 48 hours after your work has been successfully delivered, $4 will be deposited into your accounts, $1 taken by Fiverr. Your earnings can be withdrawn to a PayPal account.
So, if you need a little help, or something really silly, try Fiverr; it might be the best $5 you’ve ever spent! Or at least the strangest.
Note: In order to buy or sell with Fiverr, you must be a registered user of their site. Registration is free and open to anyone.
