Buying my first Gig. What are the total fee costs?


#1

Hi,
I want to buy a gig for $5. I’m new in here. What will be by total cost? I’m reading there’s a $2 fee. So does mean I pay $7?


#2

That’s correct. If you read the Terms of Service at the bottom of the Fiverr main page you will find all the details as to how Fiverr works.


#3

So what’s this $40 issue?I’m confused.


#4

Service fees are added at the time of purchase where a buyer can review and accept the total amount requested to pay. These fees cover administrative fees. As of May 2018, the current fees assessed to the total purchase amount are $2 on purchases up to $40 and 5% on purchases above $40. When purchasing from your shopping balance (resulting from any credits or refunds) you will not be charged a service fee. Funds returned to your balance from cancelled orders will not include service fees paid.

The above is from the Terms of Service.

Ok,
I want to buy a gig tomorrow for $5 so how much do I pay? I will pay with my credit card?


#6

You will pay $5 plus $2 fee = $7.


#7

Ok that’s fair. I will buy 2 gigs for $5 each.


#8

Enjoy your Fiverr shopping experience. :slightly_smiling_face:


#9

So once I pay, the seller will deliver as required? What if there are amends?


#10

Suggest you read the section for Buyers in the Terms of Service before you buy as that will explain everything to you.
