How to earn money on Fiverr

Updated on April 8, 2013

Do you know Fiverr? Want to know why its my choice as a money maker site?


I wanted to make some money using the Internet but I always stumbled on the same scams or low payout schemes - stuff like PTC, PTR and "surveys" that obligate you to subscribe a service - all awfull ways to spend time for 0.01$ click or less.

So I started to educate a lot on this money-on-the-web scene. I found out some pretty decent concepts.

The Best Concept I found was Fiverr. Why?

For starters, its real work for real money. Other sites make you see ads or do stuff that dont add value to the market. How are you supposed to earn from something that doesnt add value to the market?

On Fiverr you sell your Real Work for 5$ at a time.

Curious? You can, for example:

- Design a Logo;

- Compose a Poem;

- Draw a funny personalized cartoon

- Record yourself stating the name of the buyer's company

Anything, use your talents to finally earn some cash.

Go on exploring my lens to learn more. After that, you may want to check out fiverr - even if you don't become a seller you can become a buyer, since there are lots of stuff there that you can't find as cheap as in that site.

Since I first wrote this lens, on January, I've raised my income on fiverr to 150$ a month. Not bad at all

So what is Fiverr? And what about Fiverr Levels

What makes it so awesome?

Fiverr is a site where you can buy every service possible by the mere quantity of 5$ (a fiver).

The buyers are alot and you, to earn money, will be the seller.

Find out what youre good at and set up a gig on it. Offer a service, in the short term you will receive a buyer that orders your service and pays you for it. Complete the service and the user will leave you a feedback - positive feedback = +Sales.

Its really simple. Some buy, some sell - for five.

But let's say you become a great seller and start having lots of orders, wouldnt you deserve more for the comissions your giving the site?

Yes you do, thats why Fiverr has a leveling system for sellers.

This is how it works:

Level One Sellers: Sellers who made at least 10 orders, with excellent ratings and track record are automatically promoted to Level 1. At this level, you gain access to features that enable you to offer advanced services and generate a higher income.

Level Two Sellers: Sellers who made over 50 orders in the past two months, while maintaining excellent ratings and track record will be automatically promoted to Level 2. This level unlocks additional features allowing to increase sales for more advanced sellers, including priority support.

Top Rated Sellers: Top Rated Sellers are chosen manually by Fiverr moderators from a list of Level 2 Sellers based on criteria including: seniority, volume of sales, extremely high rating, exceptional customer care and community leadership.

As a Top Rated Seller you'll gain access to more extensive features than previous levels including early access to beta features and VIP support.

So at the top of having the opportunity to sell your service, you even get the chance to place some add-ons on it for extra cash.

Fiverr was founded by some great minds, like Seth Godin, and its simplicity makes it awesome

How to receive money from Fiverr

The payment processor

So you have made some sales and are starting to wonder how to get that money out, to redeem it to your "real life", for material use.

Well, the best way is to collect via Paypal. Paypal is arguably the best payment processor online, and it is totally safe for you to use, if you plan on doing LEGAL activities, as Paypal bans its users if it detects fraud. By Paypal you can send your earnings to your bank account. Of course paypal charges you a fee for the transfers so from your 4$ youll have left some 3.81$.

Yes I mentioned 4$ and not 5$ because 1$ of your gig goes directly to Fiverr, its their comission. Its a big chop, but remember, if it werent for them, you wouldnt have this chance anyway....

Its simple as 1, 2, 3.

1- Earn

2- Withdraw to Paypal

3- Withraw from Paypal to Bank account.



Good Earnings to all my readers...

      I think I should try this site. I have a friend of mine who earns from selling his/her services. I like the idea but I'm still thinking on what services should I offer. Maybe, write an article for them. :)

      Thanks for introducing this one to us.
