How to set your rates


Hey guys,

I’m wondering if you could give me some useful advice on how to set my rates so the 20% fee doesn’t bite me…you know what I’m talking about.


You need to see others gig in related categories and pricing to get an idea! I am always following the best selling gigs of my category.


There’s no real way to circumvent the 20%, if that’s what you’re talking about. You can set your prices high, but if it’s higher than your services are worth then you’ll end up driving people away.


It is impossible to cut off 20% reduction from your earning. There is one solution to increase your working rate, but you have to be careful about your service. If you set a rate which is higher than your working quality, then you have to suffer in the long run.


Figure out what price you think is fair and appropriate for your work (only you can figure this out), and then scale up that number to account for Fiver’s 20%. The final number (with the 20% due to Fiverr) is the rate that you should charge for your work.
