......Is it true?

So I heard somewhere that the “transaction fee” has gone up from $2 to $2.25…
Is that true???

If so…well, there’s nothing I can do about it, but DANG.

Do you mean the Service Fee? I placed one order yesterday and paid $2.

Not true!

Service fees are added at the time of purchase where you can review and accept the total amount requested to pay. These fees cover administrative fees. As of November 2020, the service fees are 5% of the purchase amount. For purchases under $50 an additional $2 small order fee will be applied.

The above is from the updated Terms of Service at the bottom of the Fiverr main page.

I do not understand, what exactly is not true?

OP asked is it true and reply was not true. You did not have question true or not in your post.

Plus in cases like this it is good to check timing of the post. You were typing at the same time as lloyd and that post is longer to type so by the time it was clicked post, your post was up, but technically, lloyd started replying before you.

I see, you are right. But I should have paid $7.25, right?

My reply was to the OP.

The fee is still $2 as stated in the (November) updated Terms of Service I quoted.

I still do not get it :crazy_face:.

Order yesterday
Purchase amount 5.0 As lloyd says the service fee is 5% of purchase price, means 0.25 + adder 2$ (purchase under 50$)
Total service fee 2.25$
Total price 7.25$

My order price 7$

By the way, ToS update of November 2020, is there any change?

oh…

Fee is fixed for orders up to 50$
Fee is 2$ foir orders up to 50$.

After 50$ fee is 5% of total amount.

In September, they updated and moved all the ‘payment’ stuff to it’s own page. As for this month’s, I had it open in a tab, and refreshed, and the first paragraph twitched, so there’s some wording modification there. Beyond that, I’ll have to read it over again to find if there’s anything else new of significance.

I think this is new:

Gigs may be removed from our Search feature due to poor performance and/or user misconduct.

Also, is it just me or is that “Gig analytics are back” banner gone?

Fiverr Always cut there service fee of 20%

Banner’s gone.

But I believe another round will start soon saying “there was orange banner and since it’s gone my Gig’s are down, something’s wrong.” :joy:

Yes and so are the views. No more views in analytics, only impressions and clicks. they still have them in TOS but I guess that will be deleted soon.

@blavaro I am ready whenever you are to test the fee system :smiley:

Yes mate, buyer fee (or u can call it service fee) went up. I ordered a 5 usd gig and instead of usual 2 usd I had to pay 2.25 usd fees. When ordering 8 usd I had to pay 2.40 usd instead of 2 usd… So, there is a significant increase :frowning:
