    I got some gigs on fiver and until now my packages started from 5$ to 20 and i had orders, mostly 5$ but i was sick of poor people which for 5 $ wanted to counqer the world for them.

    I have increased prices : 10$ , 30$ and 50. Guess what i have more orders , got a 50$ also and people are not asking alot..

    This world is fucked up. I can t undesrant what is happening...

    You were underselling yourself just like me.My first orders were really bad like $35, $40, $35, $45 , and had 3 orders of $20 dollars, with only one at $10(never again). I said screw that , If you ain't got money to spend I ain't got time for your buddy so I raised my prices as well.

    The $5 people are pains and want it all for cheap. I am the exception to that rule though haha! I found a few $5 gems there that I keep ordering.

    You now have higher class customer who does not want cheap service, and they tend to be more easy going and business owners or wealthier hustlers who look for more expensive, better quality services. Thats my idea for you

    i own a clothing brand, i used to sell very good quality kids t shirt for around $20 for my country that is cheap, no sales, raise the price to $30, sales.

    something is cheap people often think its going to be cheap, its not because something is expansive it means its good,

    I know right, the funny part is that once you increase your prices you get less questions and more serious people. I literally doubled to almost tripled my rate and still got sales on Fiverr.

    I think if you are more expensive, you attract quality people and you work with more joy as you made some nice $.

    Stick at $5 and upsell to your own website, send a link in .txt or else your just making fiverr more money. Also people still do chargebacks at higher prices.

    That's good to hear. People love high quality stuff. But they don't know how to tell if a product is going to be high quality or low quality. The only thing they can use to decide if your product is good or not is price and reviews.

    Depends, if @lorentzo cannot speak proper english and does many spelling mistakes, then people will think he is retarded or a foreigner. I also do think that he was probably selling crap or cheap shit at $5 dollars a gig. If you want to seriously make higher sales on each order you need to go ahead and sell things that will not take you 5-15 minutes to do, but hours. Why hours? because once you do those orders a tons of times you will find ways to reduce the time of each order to like 1-2 hours tops and still sell an order at $50-100. I rather do 1-2 orders a day at $50-100 each than a 25-50 little ones dealing with customers who know you are going to take 5-10 minutes tops for their $5 dollar order.

    That is why @lorentzo needs to stop selling $5 dollar shit, and focus on the orders that will look like they will take 2-10 hours to do and are not simply automated by bots or cheap shit. If he can focus on that, then he will just need to refine his steps to automate what ever he can to make the process less and less. In other words, orders that are $50-100 dollars are orders that have a lot of moving parts and that can't be easily be done by anyone without knowing the craft.

    I'm talking about selling gigs like these ones:

    Legal services:
    https://www.fiverr.com/waelmostafa/file-a-us-trademark-application-within-3-hours

    Scraping:
    https://www.fiverr.com/nicktucci/do-your-data-mining-web-scraping-and-python-scripting

    Linux:
    https://www.fiverr.com/srivishnu/install-open-source-application-on-linux

    Legal Videos:
    https://www.fiverr.com/bookreviewstew/shoot-a-20-word-video-on-a-green-screen-for-your-website-product-or-service


    The point is that all of these people are doing CUSTOM OFFERS of prices higher than $5 bucks. So they deal with less people and can provide more attention to the client. On top of that as you make more of these jobs you get faster , and you start creating templates to make your jobs easier. The clients you get know this isn't no cheap $5 dollar bullshit anyone can do, and they spend money on you because they perceive your work as way higher quality than $5 dollar shit like what @lorentzo might be selling.

    Higher price peo

    Be careful with higher prices, your more likely to get a chargeback 2-3 weeks after you complete job, and there is nothing you can do. Fiverr support will say we didn't get paid, so you don't. There are many people using stolen cards on there, Thats why i stick at 5 mins for $5.

    You are stupid , seriously that is why you making peanuts. People that are buying these sort of services are paying you this amount of money for a reason. The main reason is because not ANYBODY can provide this service, and doing a chargeback will means they will have to spend more time looking for a quality provider like the one offering these services, because they can't go back to that provider anymore.

    Doing a chargeback on a content writer, logo design, or video animator is no big deal because there are tons of them. The idea is that you are trying to provide a service that is not easy to replicate and hard to find other competitors that are providing what you are doing.

    These providers cannot offer $5 dollar gigs, is impossible they will be working for peanuts. They know this so they charge CHEAP for what they are selling, and that is at least high $xx per order to low $xxx per order. Most of those clients will come back to buy 2 or more orders soon, trust me you will not find the same kind of clients with $5 dollar clients that only leave "outstanding experience" every time. These expensive clients leave a very detailed review, and 85-95% of them leave always a 5 star review.

    Some people will buy just about anything if it's expensive, because they automatically assume better quality, exclusivity.

    Wines are a good example. You can get pretty good wines for about $5 a bottle and the ones which cost more, 3-4 times more are not necessarily better, often they aren't. They just positioned to people with thicker wallets.

    You raised the prices without providing a better quality service/product. Go for it, until people pay for it, you're good. Most probably you were underselling yourself until now.
