Fiverr is not a scam
I worked on Fiverr.com and made some reasonable money.
The only problem that I found was how much some buyers expect for just $5!
Not a scam though. Just play by the rules and don't expect to get rich quick, and you'll'll be fine.
Really Easy To Use
I have loved working part time on Fiverr, but sometimes I get those people who just CANNOT read! It infuriates me when someone orders my gig, demands more than what my gig offers, then leaves a negative review or cancels the order, giving me a bad reputation when all I did was tell them I won't be able to do what they are asking.
Other than that, everything has been great! :) I always make sure to look through reviews and read the full title and description before ordering anything, just to be sure I know what I am buying. No problems there ... I've yet to run into a fraud seller this way!
The $1 commission for ever $5 is a little high but more than fair. Think about it ... Fiverr is giving you an store with no monthly fee or down payment! If you don't sell then you don't have to pay! Perfectly simple and a lot easier than setting up your own website, paying for domain names, certifications, etc, and renting out a spot on a server. Seriously, they even bring traffic through regular and efficient advertising! For a 20% fee that is awesome!
Censorship at work
I ordered a gig from alliemadison12, and she sent an inferior video with the audio and video parts of according to Youtube when I tried to post it. When I asked for her to fix it, she said it was fine "as you can see." I posted a negative review on Fiverr, and they censored it twice even though I told the truth and in proper language, so I am posting my review here. Fiverr has no integrity.
Complete Scammers Stolen My Money
i was the seller on fiverr.com and they blocked my account for no reason i was designing logos on this sites and completed over 29 orders, 6 delivered and 42 in queue pending!
they cancelled all the 42 + 6 delivered orders also disabled my account. I told them clearly that i haven't got paid for the work the copyrights of the work i have done is still mine and no buyer can use it untill i get paid for the work! But they didn't responded!
fiverr tells everyone about their terms but they don't follow it themselves and its piece of crap for users not for fiverr!
They are big scams they said to me i need to wait for 3 months to get paid! so if 3months are not over no buyer can use my logos as they copyrighted!
Fiverr support is even worse and don't provide any support at all.
Stay away from them they are complete scammers. They stole about $320 from me i am thinking of reporting them online for potential fraud and scam
Won't Go Back
as a buyer, I learned how to ask questions first before making a purchase and have found some really good talent. I've made over 100 purchases, most of them satisfactory, some excellent.
BUT when I decided to sign up as an affiliate, thats when the true colors came out: I was surprised I wasn't getting any signups from my promo efforts so I had a couple friends sign up & make a purchase. Hmmm, no credit on my acct. Cust Svc said I used the wrong link. (really?). So then, I sent a direct link to a couple other friends, had them sign up, make purchase - hmmm, no credit for them either.
SUMMARY fiverr is good is you are a buyer, but not if you are an affiliate or a seller. I've decided if they treat sellers & affiliates like that (not paying the money due) then I won't shop there either. So, they got me for $84. But thats stupid business - I've spent much more than that as a buyer....
