Service fee change to $3? no notice

I buy $20 gigs on a regular basis. As of my most recent purchase (November 13, 2020), the service fee is now $3. No explanation near the fee. I googled, no explanation online. There must be a better way.

Why was I charged a service fee?

Service fees are added at the time of purchase where a Buyer can review and accept the total amount requested to pay. These fees cover administrative fees.

As of November 2020, the service fees are 5% of the purchase amount. For purchases under $50 an additional $2 small order fee will be applied.

The service fee is charged on every payment made. If during your order you place the main purchase, then add a GigExtra, and then you tip the seller, each payment will include a service fee charge.


Thank you - I see your note but if it’s $2 for orders under $50, I’m still not sure why my (new) service fee would be $3 on a $20 order. It used to be $2 but is not, today.

Wait - I think you are saying 5% plus $2.

5% of $20 is $1 + $2 fee = $3 total
