Fiverr is a marketplace where you can buy digital goods starts from $5. ( plus a $1 admin fee). They have almost all possible categories for digital assets.
All of the goods in Fiverr are from other people who sell them on Fiverr. Fiverr itself doesn’t sell anything itself. There are lots of people who trade from developing countries so that the price can be meager sometimes.
The price is always lower than the cost of “normal” websites. They also have a “Pro” option from verified PRO sellers. You can see the improved quality difference if you buy from Pro sellers. The price is higher, of course.

Fiverr For Buyers
You have to make an account, and you are ready to buy. It’s effortless, fast, and easy to obtain. The only drawback is that if you issue a refund, all of the money goes to your Fiverr account and you can use the funds only for other Fiverr goods. You don’t get the money into your bank account.
Fiverr is very good if you have a website. You need to buy things like logos, videos and, voice-overs if you are selling something and you can find them easily from Fiverr.
Fiverr For Sellers
You can see the list from Fiverr of what products people buy. You can see from the right side of the sales page, that there are “Newest Arrivals, Bestselling and recommended. Choose bestselling. Now you can see how many sales each gig has made. You can see how popular the product is what you are going to sell.
There are many factors that affect the Fiverr search engine, but I have seen that it’s not easy to get to the top page. You need to do some tweaks. But, I can say that at least you need to copy the best seller and make small changes for your gig.
Make it similar. Also, the more languages you can speak, the higher you can get on search results.
You can find some Fiverr courses where you can get more tips on how to get to the first page of Fiverr. It’s essential to get to the first page as then people see your offer first. Usually, they don’t go to the second page very often.
I have a tip for you. Try to find successful sellers who can teach you how to sell, and you have better chances to get sales. There are lots of successful sellers.
You can send them a message and ask how they get their first page rankings. If they refuse to tell it, you can offer money for it. If you send enough words, you should get an answer from someone.
Make A Sales Video
That doesn’t only give you better internal Fiverr rankings, but also gives you a better chance to sell. If you have a good sales video on Fiverr, you can build trust, and even people love to watch videos.
Make a small video about the product you are offering and can sell more likely. Please notice that you need to add “exclusively on Fiverr” to the end of your video to get approved.
Your Price Tag Can Be Higher Than $5
You can sell any amount. You don’t have to sell at $5, but it’s good to offer something with $5. Then you can make your other products at a higher price on the same gig.
Keep in mind that you need to give value with $5 as well. For example, if you are selling SEO services and you sell Backlinks. Sell one backlink for $5 and then more with a higher price. It’s not good to promote backlinks, but then your $5 offer is an SEO audit.
Traffic Outside Fiverr
If you don’t get any traffic inside Fiverr, you can use external traffic. For example, you can write a blog and put your link there to get more visitors.
Remember that it takes 3–12 months to get ranked in Google with your blog post and your post should be SEO optimized, you need to use low competition keywords, and you better also use backlinks. That is a slow method.
You can also make a boosted post in Facebook ads, or you can make a sales page where you sell your product and then it transfers to your Fiverr link. You can promote on Facebook, Twitter, Reddit, and Quora. If you have the money, you can use paid ads rather than free traffic.
You must get five-star reviews. If people are happy, you get more and more good reviews which makes your product valuable.
I look at reviews whenever I buy, and I usually buy from sellers who have only good reviews.
If you are a buyer, view the reviews and if you are a seller, try to ask people to leave a review, so you start to sell.
How Long You Have To Wait For Your First Sale?
It may take time. It depends on what you are selling, how good sales speech you have, and do you gain Fiverr’s first-page position. If you get traffic outside Fiverr, you can get your first sale faster.
If you are buying, you need to pay a $1 Fee for up to $20 product. If the order is higher than $20, you need to pay a 5% fee. Freelance services for sellers are 20% from every sale. Costs are reasonable as you find excellent and low priced products.
There is a PRO section on Fiverr which means that these sellers are verified pros. The verification comes from Fiverr. To get the pro status, people need to go truth vetting process. Fiverr asks questions, and you need to answer those questions to get through. They have three rounds of vetting.
In the application itself, you may be asked to submit the following:
- A portfolio of work
- References/list of previous clients worked with
- Social media profiles
- Education, i.e., school(s), degree earned, accreditation, etc.
- Years of experience
Why PRO Service?
One of the biggest reasons why you should try to get a pro status is that you can put a more significant price tag. People are willing to pay more for PRO’s, and you don’t have to sell that much anymore to get enough money.
I have been a Fiverr customer for a few years now, and I have to say that I am a happy customer. Everything has worked smoothly, and I have no complaints. Sellers have done their jobs and usually on time. I have bought with over $500 so far, and I continue to use Fiverr.
I also tried to sell, but I couldn’t get to the first page. But I told about Fiverr for my friend, and he got his translation Gig to the first page when I added the gig. I am not sure how well it performs now.
I Was A Seller On Fiverr
I love to write, and for that reason, I focus on that. I write to this blog, but I also use t offer my writing services on Fiverr as well. The platform works well, and it’s easy to make a seller profile. I like Fiverr as a freelance platform.
Fiverr is an excellent site to buy digital goods, and it also works for sellers. You can buy almost anything that can be sold as a digital product.
I prefer Fiverr for everyone, and I haven’t had any problems with them. But if you are a seller, it’s hard to get ranked to the first page, so you can use external traffic sources to get traffic for your gig.
If you don’t want to waste a lot of money on your website or you need any digital goods, you should use Fiverr.
