There are many sites to get freelance jobs from; however, not all freelance sites are trustworthy to new sellers in 2019.
Recently, I came across a platform “Fiverr”.
Fiverr Freelance has been popular from a long run. A lot of people make a living off it: either as a buyer, getting work done for just $5; or as a seller, providing various services to thousands of buyers.
After a deep research, I have collected a detailed guide about the Fiverr, Fiverr Gigs, How Fiverr works and many more, so you can make the right decision.
What is Fiverr?
Fiverr was established in the year 2009 at Israel. It is an online marketplace for digital services connecting freelancers across the globe to those who need their services. The services include everything from PR to social media management, graphic designing to web development and even writing content for a new website.
At present, it is one of the largest marketplaces for digital services that has a database of more than 3 million gigs. Originally each gig costs $5. In the year 2014, Fiverr removed the $5 price limit. As the marketplace continues to grow, the quantity and quality of gigs have increased dramatically, and now you can find pretty much any digital service there.
What Is Fiverr Gig?
The services offered by the sellers or freelancers on the Fiverr website are referred to as Fiverr gigs. The gig price alters from $5 to $10,000. Even though most of the gigs cost only $5 there is mainly an upsell for additional and better quality services.

How Fiverr works?
Here, sellers list their services or gigs and buyers who are interested in these services ask queries and if they are pleased with answers, they purchase them. Basically Fiverr works like a middle party assuring both parties are happy with the final result. Fiverr keeps 20% of every transaction. Once the seller provide the gig and the buyer confirmed the service, Fiverr will pay the seller within 2 weeks or even faster if you are a trusted member.
Fiverr does offers coupons if you are a first-time buyer. If you are a beginner, you can get a 20% discount by clicking. However, instead of wasting your time trying hundreds of coupons that do not work, it is better to just set up a service that requires less work.
