I just received an automated email from Fiverr, asking me if I want to participate in a test roll-out of a new feature.
They are planning on offering a discount feature, meaning you will be able to offer discounts to attract more customers.
Said discounts are sponsored by Fiverr, so if you offer a 10% discount, your buyer will end up paying 10% less, but Fiverr will make up the difference so you still make the same.
Here’s how it works:
You choose how much discount you want to offer (from 10% to 30%) and Fiverr then decides which gig of yours should offer it, and to what group of buyers.
So you don’t have a say in what gig you want the discount applied to.
You also don’t have a say on how long this discount badge will appear on your gig.
The email had some fine print, mentioning anywhere between 1-3 weeks, at Fiverr’s discretion.
Now before people start asking “how to turn it on” or “when it’s rolling out”, this is just a test apparently.
So it will be months before we see any official word on how and if it will be implemented.
What do you think?
