Let me start this way. Did anyone get an email from Fiverr that their buyers will be charged $6 but the seller will only see $5 ?
As for me, I never got any email stating adjustment in charges and fees. You can imagine how shocked I was, when a buyer ordered my basic gig. And as my usual style, I tried to convince the buyer to go for the gig extra to make his order solid. Only for the buyer to ask me for a $4 offer, because he already paid 6 bucks for the basic gig.
This got me really confused. To be frank, I politely disagreed with him over this, saying that he only paid 5 bucks. He was however very matured by accepting $5 extra offer I sent him.
I will later do my little research and found out buyers will have to pay $1 processing fee. To keep this short, fiverr is not taking the sellers into their policy direction. The fact remains, their is no business for fiverr without the sellers.
You may think the $1 is small, but it has defeated the sole aim of FIVERR BRAND - which is based on 5 bucks. Now, lovely buyers are charged 6 bucks.
This is a massive corporate blunder. This is misinformation. This is deception.
This is totally unfair, not only to the sellers, but most importantly to the buyers.
Fiverr should change its name to 6xers to be fair to all.
