Programming & Tech Package Announcement


#1

Hi Fiverr Sellers,

We’re happy to announce that Gig Packages are now available in all Programming & Tech subcategories!

unnamedGig Packages give you the freedom to set your starting price anywhere from $5 to $995. Buyers love them because they’re easier to understand, and you’ll love them because of the average increased revenues!

Building a Package requires the usage of Fiverr-defined Package Attributes, which represent the most frequently-used service components in a subcategory.
