Thank you for your kind response. I am clear that as soon as I collect my first gig, I will ask my client not to work here anymore (he works with Fiverr, and that was the reason that I registered on the platform, I am not a friend of this type of business) I don’t know If they also charge commission when paying him, I suppose so. I will close my account and take my client to work independently, if he wants, if not, it is not necessary for me either, I can understand that this platform costs a lot of money, and gives some security, but I do not know many sites that charge 20 % of commissions to all, for practically doing nothing more than having automated servers, believe me, not even with web traffic, they cost so much.
Also, paying those commissions requires careful attention at least from customer service, and I see people complaining that they have taken days to respond to them. I cannot afford to give away my money no matter how much platform we have behind. My clients are mine, I can’t find them through Fiverr. Also, sum, that I trust, my client pays, I deliver the work on time and quality. Fiverr does not add here, it subtracts.
The reason is that I cannot afford to lose money from my prices, I do not fall into the category, “I found a client here, less is nothing, I don’t mind paying the commission”. If I have to go up to save the gross profit, that is, 250-50 = 200 I will have to go up to 300 to keep my real profit. Make the client pay the commission, but outside of my territory. With what I am forced to be more expensive, result, customer leaves.
In addition, it is not a policy to charge everyone equally, even those who start, such high commissions, instead of doing them by experience or results, the more you have, the more you pay. That would retain customers and workers. And it would allow us to breathe. I understand that Fiverr wants to bite profit from minute zero. But look, he has thrown me out of the field.
If you find clients here, it is not my case, and I have used platforms like this for decades. I never find anything in them, nothing but scams and problems.
Maybe it’s worth it to you, of course I’m sorry, but no, I’ll give it some time, in case I manage to build customer loyalty, and it’s really worth it. But time tends to prove me right.
