OVER 20% of Profits taken?

You are right in saying that Fiverr take 20% of all earnings.

To be clear - are you talking about the amount that shows as ‘available to withdraw’ or have you already withdrawn the money and you’ve got 100 showing in your PayPal account for example?

Those numbers arent right, Unless taxes, or some other fees are coming out. Thats more than 20%. converting doesn’t matter…

You do lose in conversion. This is why I receive funds in USD even though I’m in Canada. Then I let PP convert it to CAD for deposit into my account. I still lose out a bit on there but these sites need to make their money. PP gives a better conversion rate than 5 does.

Hi all, thanks for the comments. Ive never had such a high fee when converting currency but perhaps you’re correct - though this is outlandish to say the least. I didnt get round to making some snaps of it as I had a few urgent orders to take care of, but the amount is less missing than initially thought. To clarify, the amount on the top of my screen before withdrawing was 119GBP, after withdrawing I received 102GBP. I’m not sure where that cash went, but it’s whatever. I’m expecting to be able to withdraw again tomorrow, so I’ll see what the difference is and get in touch with CS. Thanks everyone

Also just noticed I have a penny left in Fiverr after withdrawing - perhaps they’ve seriously rounded down so I have some pocket change available :slight_smile:

I think the tip and the actual order are separate in the earnings tab.

Hi, I recently saw a post where someone got the same deduction. One response was that if it is more than $100 Fiverr will take more than 20%. I am not sure whether this is true, I will try to find it and attach it here.

Yes Brother, Fiverr Marketplace Take 20% for every amount

This is not true.

Each Gig you sell and successfully complete, accredits your account with a net revenue of 80% of the purchase amount.

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

Wrong. There is 5% in fee to transfer.

Hey,

Posting anything like that in the forum won’t help you much. You need to contact CS.

Cheers! x

I never pay a fee. Every penny that I have available to send to PayPal is sent with no fee.

I am in the U.S. so perhaps it is sellers in other countries who still get hit with a fee. If so, I apologize for incorrect information.

I suppose if you are in the US then you use dollars anyway. For everywhere else, a currency conversion is needed and a few pounds seem to disappear outside of it. And the conversion fee varies on the currency it is being converted to.

This is why I withdraw using USD. I tried it one time in CAD and lost about $10. I like USD anyway, as I often buy stuff from the USA.
