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

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?

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.

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

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.

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

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

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

Enjoy your Fiverr shopping experience. :slightly_smiling_face:

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

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

Thanks will do hope all goes well.
