Fiverr Fees for Tip

Hi, does Fiverr takes a fee whenever you get a tip?

Thank you. I have a buyer who wants to tip, but he’s saying he is no longer seeing the option. I am not sure if it’s because the order was delivered. I actually delivered 2 days before the due date I gave him, so he was pleased with that.

You can send him a custom offer for the tip if you ask how much he wants it to be, but remember to also deliver something to him in return for that.

I wish they would not limit the amount buyers can tip.

Thank you for the information.

Its really a good idea if the buyer agree.

yeah it’s a great Idea. but @samanthawill394 you must deliver something related to the project with the delivery of the new order as @misscrystal said. If not that will definitely cause to have warnings.

send him custom offer and redelivered that work…thanks.

Fiverr takes fee whenever you got a tip. And I will not want to send custom offer for a tip…That is too much risky …After accepting delivery buyer get option to leave a tip if the buyer wants .If my buyer want to give me tip then I will tell the buyer to choose that option . Because I have seen many post where buyer left tip and later they perform chargeback . So if we use custom order to get tip then you need to face two cancellation instead of one . And also if buyer’s mind got changed after accepting custom then they can leave bad review in two orders . So I think the tip option is better than the custom order . :grinning:

Yeah . I have seen some sellers have added gig to get tips . I think this is also against fiverr TOS. When they have added tip option then why people will use custom order … This is really very risky I think …

I agree if Fiverr has added why we trying to make our own system. However, every one has own perspective and I agree with yours :slight_smile:

I have read and reread TOS, and I have not found anything saying sending custom offers for tips is against TOS. Nonetheless, I have never sent a custom offer for a tip. :slightly_smiling_face:

I think, however, if a buyer says they would like to give you a tip but do not know how to do that, then it is fine to send a custom offer for the tip they want to give you. BUT ONLY if the buyer requests it. :wink:

Yes that is not listed in fiverr TOS . But as they have made a system to get tips then we should not use custom method .For that I told . . :wink:.
And you are regular member here and highly experienced . You know that how many sellers orders got cancelled for the chargeback and the buyer also left tip . And In this case it is really risky … :roll_eyes:

Fiverr charges commission on tips to make sure there is no abuse of the system. Abuse could prevent Fiverr from utilizing funds to make the site better. See:
