    So, first time I cashed out.

    Hello Brizz Bane,

    Just thought you'd like to know fiverr.com sent you $7.84 USD.

    ....Now I was pissed..because they already take 20%, so I want my $.16.

    Sent them this:

    Brizz Bane, Oct-29 04:44 (IST):
    another fee taken?!?: Why did you take another $.16 out of my balance when paying me????


    Isn't 20% enough?!

    Hi Brizz,

    As you may know, transferring funds has its costs. PayPal currently charges their customers 2%, and up to a maximum of $1 of the transferred sum when sending money to their account.

    Tip: if you are not in a hurry to withdraw your funds, it is better to wait until you earn more than $50 before you withdraw.

    Please let me know if there is anything else I can do for you,
    Julia

    THIS IS BULLSHIT
    checked my account, sure enough:

    Amount received:
    $7.84 USD
    Fee amount:
    $0.00 USD
    Net amount:
    $7.84 USD
    *****

    My Next response:
    I'm about to go apeshit. ...I would be VERY careful how you reply to this email. ...About to make a press release.


    Amount received:
    $7.84 USD
    Fee amount:
    $0.00 USD
    Net amount:
    $7.84 USD


    Yes. I am aware payPal charges a fee--however, paypal doesn't charge me a fee because of my account type---I received funds the other day, and there was no fee taken out.

    Just to make sure--I checked, because I was pretty sure you were lying to me (which at first I was very surprised).

    ...Soo..according to your email, the reason I didn't receive the full $8.00 was because Paypal charged me a fee...correct?

    ***
    .....am I missing something? I am seriously pissed. ...if they are doing this to everyone...thats crazy. ...its only $.16... but I'm pissed they already took $1/5 ...


    ....so...they just straight up lied to me, correct??

    edit: If they are...this could VERY eaqsily be class action-able...right? (not lawyery..at all.. that means charging for concern of a group..yes?)

    update (their reply):
    Ryan - Fiverr's Customer Support Team, Oct-29 05:18 (IST):
    Hi Brizz,

    Correct. The reason why all sellers on Fiverr do not receive the full amount of funds is due to the 2% Paypal transfer fee on all withdraws from Fiverr. This 2% fee caps out at $50 (or $1 taken) and applies to all revenue withdraws from Fiverr.

    Regards

    You aren't charged a fee, but fiverr probably is.

    How dare they take .16 cents, i think u can sue the best advice i can give is hire a lawyer might cost you 6k-10k and sue fiver for $1.00 if your representation is really good you might get $2.50 I think u have a case im behind you all the way. :rolleyes:

    Well I can understand and admire that you are a guy who stands behind principles. Although the mannerism is comical. Don't reply to Fiverr or any other established site, actually to anyone with such hostility.
