How Much Is The "Fiverr Tax" For Buyers?


#1

I’m looking to bring some outside clients into Fiverr, but it just occurred to me that they will be paying slightly more because of Fiverr’s fees (and I will be earning 20% less).

Can someone update me on the current fees for purchasing a gig? Is it $0.50 total or $0.50/$5 (or something else)?

Note: I’m aware that spending funds already in your Fiverr account (from selling a gig, etc.) means you won’t pay fees when placing an order, but this exception won’t apply to my clients.

I believe all buyers pay 1$ extra per order. Sellers pay 1$ for every 5$ earned. I may be wrong though, but that is what I heard.


#3

The processing fee is minimum of $1 or 5%, whichever is higher.

A $5, $10, $15, $20 gigs will all cost me $1.00.

Anything higher, I pay 5%.

Any tip at end of order is considered a separate transaction for me, therefore line 1 applies.

Buyers can save money by using shopping cart for several $5 purchases from single seller or multiple sellers.

Thank you both! :slight_smile:

I was originally going to bring some clients in for the convenience of the payment system and automatic pricing features, but I think I’ll keep them off-site for now. It’s not that much extra, but I don’t feel comfortable asking my long-time clients to pay more just because it simplifies things on my end.

20% for any amount, but on some location they charge $.50 rather $1
