so I understand Fiverr as a platform for services. My business is designing electronics, so doing the schematics and PCBs layouts. That’s fine because the deliveries are digital.
Sometimes buyers ask me to actually build something. Do I need to put the material costs on the gigs price? Because that way I would need to add another 20%, because Fiverr will charge that in the end. And this will costs that are translated to the buyer again, because I need the money for the goods, not for my work.
Plus, I have to wait for the money, forcing me to pay in advance for my buyer.
One solution may be to tell the buyer to order parts from specific shops to my address. So some shops offer different shipping addresses but some require a special user account or only available in german language.
The most comfortable way (for the buyer) would be a mechanism to allow him to send me money in advance, but that would violate the ToS of Fiverr.
Any other ideas?
