Are You a New Seller? Not Sure Where to Start? These are the Resources You Need to be Successful on Fiverr [Long]


I know this is a long post, and it requires a lot of reading. But, if you do read it, act on it, and take advantage of the suggestions, it will help you be successful on Fiverr. There are no easy routes to success on the platform, but the guidance here will put you ahead of most other sellers, and help you turn Fiverr into a viable income stream. The question is, how important is that to you?

The Fiverr forum is a great place to ask questions, get advice, and interact with other highly-engaged, veteran sellers. I thought it would be useful to gather together these resources and answers in one place, so you have an easy way to get the information you need.

The advice here is drawn from various other forum posts, understanding the questions sellers have, and through our insight into how the Fiverr platform works. You should read through these resources and do some legwork yourself, then, if you can’t find the answers, feel free to post your question in another thread.

Let’s get into it.

Please do not use this thread to post questions, thank you. You can start new discussions here if you have a question.

General Fiverr Information for Sellers

  • The Seller Help Center - plenty of information on most topics a Fiverr seller needs to know about.

  • How to Start Selling on Fiverr - the basics of getting started on the platform, essential reading for all new sellers.

  • Creating a Gig - how to create your first, and subsequent gigs. Gigs are the way you sell your services on the platform.

  • The Seller Help Center has plenty of other advice on managing orders and gigs, communications, features, promotions, getting paid, and more. Check it out.

  • The Fiverr blog - articles on how to get the most out of the platform. The most relevant section on the blog for sellers will be the “community” section.

  • How to Optimize Your Gigs to Maximize Your Sales - 12 practical things you can do today to increase visibility and enhance your sales.

  • Fiverr Terms of Service (ToS) - the rules and standards you signed up to when you joined Fiverr, what you’re expected to do, and how you’re expected to behave.

  • Customer Support - the customer support team are there to help you with any questions you have after reading through the various resources. They can answer questions, resolve issues, and advise on / enforce the ToS.

Using the Forum
If the areas above don’t answer your question, the Fiverr forum is a good next step.

  • Use search! - there’s an almost 100% chance your question has been asked and answered before, so prior to asking a question, try searching. Click the magnifying glass icon on the top right of every forum page, close to your profile picture.

  • Review the “Tips for Sellers” section - many of us post guides and advice in this part of the forum, and they can be very useful for new sellers. One of the best ways to use this section is to click on “Top” and you’ll see the most read and liked posts.

  • Use “Improve My Gig” - if you want advice on how to improve your specific gigs, this is where to ask.

This is the Best post of all time i read on Fiverr Forum. A treasure for all the New sellers.

Thanks so much, @paulmaplesden. You are awesome and real Hero to help new sellers here.

Any tips for getting the first order?

Whew, can we put that on a billboard, hang a tarpaulin, highlight it in yellow, print it on flyers, distribute it all around and maybe even a pop-up box that appears “Hey, as mentioned, please don’t use this thread to post questions.” when someone is about to post a question.

Anyhow, great post Paul! This is very valuable and it’s great you were able to put everything in. Now, let us hope for lesser “hi im new plzzzzz help” posts from here on. We can only hope.



Too long, too much reading.
It’s seems like you are saying being a Fiverr seller should take time, effort and skill to be successful - No Thanks!
Just tell me where the button is to release all the buyers to me and give me money for nothing please.


I know, I hate it when I have to work for something…


Yay! I am in this post!


Excellent post! I’m going to bookmark this and send every new seller here whenever they ask for help or how to get orders.


When did you have time to put together such a conclusive list of resources?!

I would like to add one more point:



:fire: This Needs to be PINNED somewhere! :fire:

I am not sure if that can be done :slight_smile:
Thanks on the behalf of the entire beginners community.

Well Done @paulmaplesden :+1:


Wow! It’s pinned! Thanks! So usefull!:slightly_smiling_face:


I make so many typos in posts, this will be around time number 15 that I have edited this - thanks for the pickup, and I will fix!


so nice :slight_smile:
i like it…but now i’m depressed


By the by, I came to notice that you can only edit your own topics for a while. I wanted to amend one of my topics when Fiverr had changed something but couldn’t. The default is 2 months according to what I’d read up, but it’s a value admins can overwrite, so it might be different here.
Just in case you want to proofread “later” and procrastinate too much, “later” might not be possible. :wink:

How to make the first sale?!?

yeah its really helpful…but there should be some seller security:sunglasses:


Your every topic is so much realistic. So this is the best post. Thank for sharing everything with us.


Thanks sir this is really helpful
thank you so much

How can I get sells

Wow this is very good.

I'm not getting orders :(

Great post… seems great hard work in it and most importantly it helps others a lot also… Big thumbs up !!!
