how to make money on fiverr


Before we start with the fiverr, I think its far better to discuss some terminologies used in fiverr and help you in understanding.

  • Seller is a freelancer or a person who provides his/ her services to buyers
  • Buyer is a person who purchase seller services
  • Services is the freelancing work done by seller
  • Gig is the service package, in which seller describe his services. Basic Gig is of $5
  • Gig Extra These extra services related to gig offered by seller on additional charges


Fiverr is basically a freelancer platform, on which freelancers (sellers) provide their specialities to the potential customers (buyers). Fiverr makes the freelancing far easy, you don’t need to give any test or anything else, if you have any skill or skills, you just need to simply make a free account on fiverr, make your gig and start selling.


It’s time to motivate you. Yeah! I’ll show you who people from around the world having simple or professional skills are earning lots of dollars just sitting on their home.

Let me give you just a single example, see the results and motivate yourself.


How people are making money on fiverr

This is a logo designing gig in a “Graphic and design” category. Here in red box I have highlighted the buyers’ reviews. Please keep in mind that gig sales is different than gig reviews. Sales can be many times more than reviews but not less than reviews.

Let us assume that total number of orders received by this gig is equal to reviews

Orders= 22638+376 = 23014

23014 x $5 = $ 115070

But to be very honest this gig is earning minimum of 2-3 times more dollars. This is because of two reasons

  • Sales are always more than reviews.
  • All orders are not of just $5 but they can be five to thousands of dollars.

For every order fiverr will charge 20% of your earned amount. Whenever buyer order a gig, fiverr deducts the amount from buyers account, you will get an email about order. You need to complete the order within time, in case of non time delivery buyer can cancel the order. After completing the order buyer can mark the order complete, or wait three days for fiverr to mark your order as complete. You will receive the earned amount (which is the amount after deduction 20% of fiverr fees) after 14 days of completion of the order.


It is said that fiverr is a five dollar services. Yes on first look it is $5 service. But for people having skills can earn 100s of dollars with even single order. If you think what service you are providing is not of $5 but it’s of more than 5 then you simply say your customers to order multiple gigs for this service. Earning more then $100+ with single order is a art which you people learn with time. You can divide your services with the help of gig extras. But don’t charge too much that buyers don’t order your gig. Do some researches on competitors gig before making you gig.

Wish you best of luck for your FIVERR earning journey
