If you’re not rendering services on fiverr as a seller, you could be one of the thousands of users who purchase gigs for themselves or for their clients. Outsourcing on fiverr is undoubtedly one of the best ways to get something done online very fast without spending a whole lots of money. It is really that simple and amazing. You can join fiverr in less than 5 minutes and start purchasing from the millions of professional services.
What you can outsource from fiverr
Initially fiverr makes it possible for people to buy and sell digital products (downloadable products). However, due to the numerous demands from users, they introduced shipping, which allows sellers to add shipping request to their gigs. Although, it is possible to buy physical products on fiverr, however due to the fact that fiverr doesn’t participate in the order delivery process, I would encourage you not to buy physical products unless you know the seller quite well.
The most popular services you can outsource on fiverr are highlighted below:
- Graphics design, including illustrations, banners, flyers, logos, and so on.
- Article writing services
- Search engine optimization
- Backlink to your websites
- Video production and editing

How to make purchase on fiverr
Buying services on fiverr is possible with the help a PayPal account. Once you have a functional PayPal account, paying for gigs will take less than 2 minutes. You don’t have to expose your personal information online before making purchase. Signup for your fiverr account and look for the services you want. If you don’t know the best gig to purchase from, kindly use the “post a request” option to look for competent providers.
How to find the right provider
Finding the right provider on fiverr is extremely simply with the help of the ratings. You don’t have to spend all days conducting research or interviewing the provider. All you need to do is to check their profiles and see the overall ratings and what individual buyer wrote about them. Of course, if a seller is good at what he/she does, the ratings will speak for them. Poor sellers usually get poor ratings. One of the best ways to good sellers is to read their gig descriptions and ask few questions about their services. Sellers with good profiles and gig descriptions are most likely to deliver the best.
Another important thing you need to consider is the volume of reviews they’ve got. Sellers with more than 100 feedbacks with outstanding ratings are likely to deliver the best.
Do I pay before getting the work?
Yes, you need to make payment before the seller can deliver your order. Note that the money does not go directly to the seller’s account, but fiverr’s. The amount paid will remain with fiverr until you mark the job as complete. One important thing you need to know is that fiverr automatically marks order as complete once it has been delivered for three days.
How much does it cost to use fiverr?
Fiverr is 100 percent free. You don’t pay any fee to use the platform. The only money you pay is the cost of the services you purchase and the processing fee. If the service you purchase is $20, fiverr will deduct that amount plus the processing fee. The processing fee is usually small.
What do I provide after paying for the service?
Each gig has certain requirements which must be fulfilled by the buyer. For example, if you purchase a writing gig, definitely you need to provide the topic for the article. Again, some sellers can request for additional information if what you provided is not enough to get the work done.
Can I contact the seller via phone or skype?
NO, you may not communicate outside of fiverr. The reason is to protect both the seller and the buyer, and make all transaction transparent. Contacting sellers or buyers outside of fiverr is completely against the terms of service, and may lead to account disabling.
How long must I wait to get the completed work?
This is another important thing you need to consider when outsourcing on fiverr. Most of the established sellers take more time than the new sellers. If you’re looking for a quick project, make sure you use the search bar to look for qualified providers and filter them based on the delivery period. Some sellers can also deliver within 24 hours provided you pay extra money for the fast delivery. Again, some services such as web development and Google’s AdWords campaign setup and maintenance may take up to 7 days.
Where will I find the completed project?
The completed project will be delivered on fiverr. Once the seller has delivered your work, fiverr will notify you by email so that you can review the project and accept it or ask the seller to modify the work. Delivered work will be marked as complete after three days. And once the work has been marked as complete, you cannot ask for modification again.
What if I don’t like the delivered work?
There’s room for second chance. Fiverr has made it possible for buyers to ask for modification or even request for a refund. If you are not satisfied with the delivered work, you can ask the seller to redo the work or even request for refund. Of course, you don’t have to request for refund because of minor issues such as font size or color combination. Ask for a refund if the seller delivered poor quality work or something entirely different from your request.
Will I be able to withdraw my refunds?
As at the time of writing this post, you cannot withdraw your refund, but can still use it to purchase another gig (service) on fiverr. In fact, it is stated in fiverr’s terms and condition. Refunds are credited to the user’s account for making purchase.
