People actually do this?
This is crazy to me...that a designer is willing to charge $5 for their services. After the Fiverr fee, paypal fee and taxes on your income...you are working for far below min wage. You are giving all designers a bad name and encouraging bad design to sell to uneducated buyers. I get paid more to pee. >.>
Fiverr Is Wonderful
I have NEVER had a problem with any Fiverr supplier. All have done superior jobs for me and I use Fiverr frequently. Fiverr is one of the best resources on the web.
If you've had problems using Fiverr it's probably because you've not chosen the right supplier for your project.
Definitely a scam
It s a large scale scam, you purchase a gig (service), you never get what you request.
You can cancel, sellers accept but you never receive you money back. What you receive is a credit to use for buying other gigs on fiverr. I tried 4 different sellers and was never able to receive what i paid for. So what's the point? Who takes benefits from this?
Do these sellers even exist as real people selling a digital service? I really doubt it.
Also the reviews can only be fake because i always went with top rated sellers but still couldn't get anything done.
Shame on Fiverr
I was a new seller on Fiverr, and I had a five star rating. Without warning, Fiverr deactivated my account. They said that I was trying to get two reviews for the same gig which was not true. I explained what happened, and I have not received a response from them. Hopefully, I will get the money they owe me for the assignments that I have completed.
