Payment doubt (earnings)


Hello everyone!

It is a pleasure to introduce myself, I am new to Fiverr. I am looking forward to provide great services and become a top seller :grinning:

I just delivered my first order (got a nice 5-star review, so happy for it!) and I have a doubt when it comes to payment. I selled that specific order for 44USD, but Fiverr says I earned 35,2USD. Why so? Where are the 8.8 dollars left?

I am new so I guess it will have to do with Fiverr’s policy or something like that.

Can anyone explain me? Thank you very much.


Congrats on getting your first order!

To answer your question: Fiverr takes a 20% cut.



Fiverr cut 20% of job amount as Fiverr fees.
fiverr will clear the payment after 14 days of the job complete


thank you very much!


I appreciate your help, thanks!


Check out the Terms of Service at the bottom of the Fiverr main page for the rules as to how Fiverr works.


I would like to add that 20% of job amount is a very reasonable percentage. Consider also that if Fiverr becomes more important in the next years, there will be more opportunities for all of us.:slightly_smiling_face::+1:


absolutely agree on that! Let’s hope that happens :smiley:
