Can I offer services for free on Fiverr?

Hello!
I have a question. Can I offer services for free (sometime) on Fiverr to get more positive rating and good feed back?

No fiverr does not support it. It’s illegal.

So you want to start your Fiverr career off by working for FREE? smh

T_LOL
What a way to gain a few cheapskates aka bargain basement shoppers. I’d suggest reading the TOS!

OK, thank you all. I understand.

You can give something for free, I guess, but you can only get reviews for the orders that were purchased and completed.

This is a good point.

Why did you put the word free in brackets? To offer free services in fiverr is very simple, all you have to do is close your account, because the only thing you will get in return is a “thank you” (NO ELSE)

  1. Know Your Value
    Fiverr’s services start at $5.00. Although it can be tempting to offer promotions or discounts so that the orders will start rolling in, offering your work for free is not a recommended approach to connect with sellers. It is important to set your potential buyer’s expectation that your work can’t be obtained for free. It’s essential to know your worth as a seller and not to compromise it in order to attempt attracting buyers.

(Yes, I know it’s an old post) I’m kinda on the same boat as alvl_dev (except for the rating part). My initial thought was getting experience with recieving orders from the platform without needing any money involved, but now I see I misinformed myself with that one. Kind of a shame I can’t get to do it for free, I really wanted to improve my skills without needing to be payed for it, as I don’t think my work is worth the money as of now tbh.

If you don’t think your work is worth the money people would be paying for it, you might consider taking a Fiverr Learn course or two (if you have the money and something is offered that applies to you) and/or not setting up a gig until you’re confident you can deliver quality. Best wishes!
