What does a Revision Consist of?

This is specific to illustration. :slight_smile:
I know revisions are used after the work is submitted, and more can be purchased later if need be, but what counts as 1 revision?

My very first order used her revisions but only asked for 2 things to be fixed because it came with 2 revisions, but what constitutes a revision?

Is one revision: all the things you want fixed at one time? (E.g. fixing a size, color, and background =1 revision) or is 1 revision for one thing fixed? (E.g. fixing a size = 1 revision, fixing a color = 1 revision) and so on?

I want to be confident in this so I can help my customers if they have questions in the future, I tried looking it up on the f.a.q, and articles around Fiverr but they all only talked about providing revisions and buying more,etc.

Thanks! ~Vee


The scope of a revision is up to the seller to describe and limit in size.

For some sellers, a revision means willing to do the entire order over. For others, it means a very limited portion to revise or redo. And for other sellers, they offer no free revisions and any revision request will be met with a request for more payment before any further work will be done.

Keep in mind that a buyer can disregard a seller’s revision guidelines and constantly spam press the “request revision” button, but a seller does not have to accept and work on any and every revision request.


Like the @enunciator mentioned above, each seller will see revisions differently.

In my case I offer one revision, as long it is reasonable and according to the initial briefing. Any extra revision a charge will be applied.

No matter your case, never offer unlimited revisions.


@enunciator ah, ok, so I get to decide what can/can’t be revised in a revision, good to know! Thank you! :slight_smile:

@ligiacarvalho Thank you. None of my gigs offer unlimited revisions, especially after seeing the many, many, tips and (horror) stories from other sellers advising against it.


Based on changes there will be revisions.
In my field of work I may have some minor changes in work later, I usually won’t charge anything for that however some major changes costs even more than a project.
So divide revisions into minor and major and decide weather you want charge your client or not.
