    I wouldn't waste my time with them. You have to wait ages to get your cash too. There are many better clones out there - I prefer Zeerk. Fiverr does have the traffic though, but just sign-up to a bunch of the others.

    Cheers

    Then when you withdraw it PP takes a cut too, so it isn't fiver, it's more like 3.95r

    It is pretty nifty what they have done though. I like Fiverr a lot actually.

    Its 20% of fees and even when you withdraw to paypal it will take 8 cents so you will get 3.92 for each geek and you have to wait for 14 days for the payment to be cleared

    fiverr take $1 fee on each gig and take anotehr $1 when withdraw to paypal

    also need to wait 14 days to get paid

    and becareful from buyers that can refund easily take work and refund fiverr sucks in that

    it refunded them without any notice if just buyer ask to refund

    Hey OP, they have to make money also. I would do the same thing, maybe not take a whole dollar, but I would definitely take at least 50 cents from each gig sold. It's gotta happen man. But think about it, they deserve that dollar because if it wasn't for them you would have $0 instead of $4.

    no but if i had traffic like fiverr so i would sell ad spaces, ill monitize the traffic by advertise myself, ok i can understand the fee's im not saying they shouldn't do it im just saying its a little bit too much if it was for e.g 10 per gig and you take $1 so maybe its fine which i still think its a lot, i mean think about that they take fee's from at least 5000 gigs a day. its 5k a day and im sure they have much more selling gigs per day.

    but i guess that if you use the money you earned to buy gigs which i found very interesting gigs there so it can work this why i guess instead of give another fee's to pp

    almost, but they don't have more than 5k sales per day at least at the moment, they're averaging 3-4k, but they're rapidly growing, when i last checked this ~2 months ago they were averaging only around 2k

    i don't have a clue, one hour ago i successfully delivered an order and everything seems to be fine atm as well

    it happens sometimes that you see that animated loading symbol after you sent a message or delivered an order and the page is not refreshing by itself automatically, you need to do it manually, than you can see that your message has been sent/you order has been delivered successfully

    other than that ask their support/submit a support ticket if the issue is still persist:
