Fiverr Forum

Who are the sellers on fiverr?


#1

It appears to me that people who are happy making $5 are those living in poorest countries of the world. For them 10 ,20,30 dollars is a reasonable amount.so guys if tou think you can earn a living on fivere while living in developed world, you are mistaken.

However you can easily exploit people by asking for a lot of work for pennies. How unfair it is. Absolute exploitation of freelancers


#2

You can only ask for what the person quotes (for the most part), so the seller is fine with offering tons of work for pennies.


#3

OK then


#4

Right. Guess I’m being exploited then. LOL.


#5

Understand there are many sellers making over $5000 a month and some making over $10,000 a month.

Yes in some of the more impoverished places in the world you will find good bargains here but $5 is considered a lot there and buys more.

I don’t mind the spare change, helps me pay for petrol and beer… :stuck_out_tongue:


#7

You don’t have any idea how much I charge for a single project :smiley: :smiley: For $5, I would only spend 10 minutes on a website. Probably fixing a minor bug.

But, then there are sellers who will promise to build another Facebook in 3 days for $5. Well, what can I say about them :slight_smile: :smiley:

A good freelancer will never undersell his product. No matter if he/she is a level 1, level 2 or a top rated seller.

Welcome to the Globalized World, my friend.


#9

In that case this is the best exploitation ever.


#10

The fact that fiverr is for $5 doesn’t mean we earn $5 or we are being exploited.
Majority earn $5 in 15 minutes
We do what we love.

I’m happy making 5.00… several times a day :stuck_out_tongue:
I think it’s awesome that people from around the world can do their work online, and bonus if the currency translates into a high value in their country.
