Do you add a 20% Fiverr charge on your Gig fee as shown on the Gig dashboard or you add it later and send an Offer with the charge to a client?
You need to factor it into your price. Buyers who see _US$x on your gig and contact you about it, will be unhappy campers or pull the “bait & switch” card if you then quote them US$Sx+20% for the same job that your gig advertised for US$x.
Fiverr then adds their buyer fee from their side to your offer (you won’t see that, only the customer will, which can sometimes make buyers unhappy too but they should know that as it’s stated in the terms of service that they’ll pay a US$2 or 5% (for orders of 40+US$) fee, so it’s not really your responsibility to tell them beforehand.
Thank you for your elaboration. I set the fee without an awareness of this 20% charge at the beginning. I then lost some clients when I sent an Offer including 20%.
I agree that our fee should reflect outr honesty to clients.
Thanks for the informations !
This is great information I didn;t know about this and never apply this thanks for share.
