Puzzled by Fiverr payment schedule?


#1

I have “earned” $64 since I started with Fiverr on Jan. 1. 16 of those payments were cleared by Jan. 12. But the amount made available by Fiverr on “payday” (1/16) was $4? I have had orders and payments clear almost every day since Jan. 1, so I’m a bit puzzled by how they are deciding how much could be made available.



Any info appreciated. Thanks. I’ve looked at the pages on payment and other discussions, but I’m not griping about being paid every two weeks, I’m just trying to understand the timing of payment cleared vs. made available.

The 14 day clearing period begins when a gig is marked complete. But when you factor in time zones etc it can actually take 15 days after the customer marks an order complete.



I also believe the fiverr has a payment clearing script that runs x amount of times per day!

Payment clearing can take up to 18 Days, mainly if the buyer did not mark the order complete so three extra days are added to the total 14 days factor in time zones.



Orders are generally marked as complete at 13:30 GMT and 01:30 GMT and are usually available for withdrawal at 00:00 GMT

thanks for the info, it’s just bizarre that some of the gigs that are still labeled “Revenue for Order Completion” were in fact accepted by the client and feedback left going back to Jan. 1. I’ll just give it some more time and see what it looks like in a week or so.

I had the same question when I first started. Everyone reassured me the money would come and it did :slight_smile: What I’ve found is… the “delay” comes with waiting the 3 days for the order to auto complete vs. the customer marking it complete. I’ve found it takes approx. 19 days to clear if it auto clears, versus 17 days if it is marked completed by the customer the same day as delivered.

If you get a message that tells you the buyer “marked your order complete” then you should know that the buyer did not do that. It’s the automated completion that occurs after 3 days. That’s just Fiverr being non-nonsensical.

well, I’ve got orders from Jan. 1 that are still marked "Revenue for Order Completion"and it’s Jan. 28 now. So well past 19 days. Wondering if it’s time to contact Fiverr customer service.

The good news is you can go to Revenues, on “Show” select “Pending Clearance,” and you’ll see when you’ll get the mother effing money!



The bluer the clearing box, the better.



P.S. Remember to let those “Available Funds” grow to significant amounts, like $500, $1,000, more if you have the self-power. Let that beautiful money grow, and then turn it into vacations, jewelry, a new handgun, or save it for a bigger purchase in the future.



You know why I love Fiverr? Because working here is like getting paid every day. The real-world jobs are boring, you get paid biweekly, and it’s always the same amount. Fiverr is exciting! You never know what you’ll make.

I think you may be using your Fiverr earnings to buy 'vacations in a bottle'! ;)

Back when I first started, this forum was F-U-L-L of experienced sellers saying to withdraw money often because the payment system was so full of bugs, it was worth paying the frequent withdrawal fees because money would just disappear from their accounts - better to lose a little than a lot.

Of course, the advice has done a complete turn since then, but I still feel more secure about spending an extra few cents here and there than to risk losing a stack. I do keep up a balancing act though; I wait until at least as much as I'm going to withdraw should be close to clearing. Just a little attempt at aggravation avoidance in case there's a chargeback down the road.
