The days of making $5 per order on Fiverr are long gone. For a website that is only 2 years old, it has certainly been growing in leaps and bounds. A recent redesign in the last few months has led to a much more user-friendly experience for both the buyers and the sellers. And the various “levels” for the sellers come with lots of extra perks and fringe benefits as you rise the ladder of gig success.
The Highest Level of Rating is currently “Top Seller” status. These are members who are handpicked from the Fiverr administration, based on the sales performance, customer satisfaction, and delivery times, among other criteria. Once sellers hit this top ranking, they can offer a number of “gig extras” which can increase the purchase price per order to over $500, with higher amounts expected in the near future.
This has become very popular with freelancers, effectively allowing huge numbers of Fiverr Geeks to earn a very lucrative living online within a few short months, solely from their presence on this one, single website. Until Fiverr came along, this was almost unheard of in the freelancing community.
The new website design provides a new visually appealing look, but there is much more to the revamp than just cosmetics. The Fiverr search results now offer nearly 4 times as many gig choices per page, and the individual choices are consistently updating and changing every few minutes. This evens the playing field for sellers, but also makes the site much more fun for the buyers. You simply never know what is going to pop up on the page when you enter the site.
