What is Fiverr All About?
Fiverr is an online marketplace or platform where users can buy or sell digital-related services for a particular amount of money.
Fiverr was launched in 2010 and it has since then become a significant force to reckon with in the freelance industry. It has a dream place for beginners and even experts!
In a decade of its existence, no doubt many people have found a way to make active and passive income on this platform. There’s a frequently asked question whether people still make money on Fiverr in 2020? Well, the answer is YES! And I will show you how in this article.
How Does It work?
Like every other online marketplace on the internet. Services are offered by a seller (freelancer) and are bought by a buyer. The services offered are called Gigs.
When gigs are created by sellers, buyers are able to browse through many created gigs by different sellers.
When a buyer chooses a gig and is ready to make a purchase, they will have to make an order and then proceed to payment checkout. Buyers are charged a processing fee of $2 by Fiverr and 5% of every purchase above $20 that is made.
Usually, a seller that is a beginner on Fiverr is expected to tag his/her gigs an amount of $5 each. It can be more but 5 dollars is the lowest gig you can create. Fiverr charges sellers 20% of the number of their services. So you get paid 80% of the amount you tag your gig. Sounds fairly enough!.
Is Fiverr Sign Up Necessary?
Some people ask to know if it is necessary to sign up on Fiverr before they can buy or offer to sell their services.
YES! If you want to use the platform to sell or buy services, it is compulsory that you register and create an account on it. It has buyers and sellers accounts. Otherwise, you won’t be able to do any kind of activity on it.

If you are not satisfied with the video, continue reading the text. It’s just as simple and explanatory!
Open fiverr.com on your web browser (preferably your computer browser) and click on “Join”.
Put your valid email and click “Continue”.
Note: There options for you to sign up using your Google Connect or Facebook accounts. I advise that you use the email option if you are a beginner.
Choose a username and set up a very strong password that you will be able to remember any time you need it. Then, click “Join”.
Note: Fiverr username is at least 15 characters long and must not include any special characters (_,’$). Be creative in choosing your username because, once a username is chosen, it cannot be changed until you delete your existing profile. Choosing usernames related to the services you offer can help people recognize what you do easily. e.g “NobleInformant Digital Marketing”, etc.
After step 3, you’ll be sent a confirmation mail in the email address you provided earlier. Click “Activate Your Account” and you’re now a registered Fiverr user.
