I will not be tipping any sellers in the future. I am (literally, not figuratively) poor, but I manage to make it because I carefully plan all expenditures.
I understand when Fiverr charges a $2 service fee on an order. However, I do not understand when Fiverr charges a service fee on a tip to a seller!
A $2 service fee on a $5 tip means Fiverr made a 40% markup on my tip! Had I known Fiverr would charge ANOTHER $2 (for a $5 tip) I would not have tipped on my most recent order.
As long as Fiverr charges a service fee on tips, I will not be tipping in the future. I believe tips on an order should be grandfathered in under the same $2 service fee that was charged on the order.
Too bad for your sellers, I guess. I can never tip them, even when I feel they deserve one because I can’t afford the Fiverr fee on a tip.
