For a service that spruiks small odd jobs at $5, this 50 cent increase has just left me with a big facepalm. Clearly the Australian government has decided to take over running Fiverr with the “Fiverr tax levy”
Fiverr was created in Israel, so I don’t know if Australia has jurisdiction. Now when I buy things on Amazon, sometimes I’m charged a sales tax, sometimes I’m not. So I don’t know how Fiverr works for buyers, when I buy I usually buy with my revenues and I’m not charged fees. Maybe this is a PayPal thing.
