Feedback on the Fiverr Tipping System

I have been using Fiverr for a few years off and on. I appreciate the creators and hard worker here.

I understand Fiverr taking a % off the initial project, but taking a cut of their tip seems a bit much. If the processing fee is almost the same amount as the tip. It’s going to turn off a lot of employers to share even a fee bucks in the first place or other might commission out of Fiverr when every feature starts to be nickel and dimed excessively.


Honestly, I understand why the current system is in place the way it is.

Personally, I think if the percentage taken from tips were scaled (5% on first $5, 10% on $10, 20% on $20 and above) there would be a few fewer complaints.


I really doubt they will reduce the fee at all.
