They used to!
I used to be an avid buyer on Fiverr before they made all the changes to make more money. Just last year, they had two things that saved buyers money:
- A shopping cart: (YUP, a cart like you see on any shopping site). You can buy as much as you want, say 8 gigs worth $5 gigs = $40, and pay $2 fee.
- Team Account: All buyers can create an account, I used to put $100 + $5 fee. Then I can buy all the gigs I want without having to pay another fee.
- Sellers using the money earned from Fiverr were exempt from paying the fee.
At the beginning there were no fees, then it was $0.50, then it was $1, now it’s a minimum of $2 ( as you already know).
It really stinks, when we pay another fee for an addon, then another fee for tipping the seller.
The short answer to your question is “no.”
I know the feeling.
