    I have seen many guys here and around the web who have a clone of Fiverr but very less success rate,I personally won't recommend you to go for the 1000th Fiverr clone and waste your time and money!But if you have committed this mistake..some of you might have some success,but success rate is very less here!So there are few things you can do to make something out of your Fiverr clone.

    Unique and Uncommon Payment Processor-
    Something like "Alertpay"..not so common but reliable.Make it mandatory for all the buyer and seller to have an Alertpay account,and place something like "Make an account now" with your reff ID.You will get paid for each sign up!
    Let us say that most of the prople would be using paypal,offer something like 10% discount on first 5 orders on payment via Alertpay or whatever processor you use.


    Make it look more active and manage it with perfection-
    Fake :D Fake buyer,Fake seller,Fake comments :D All this will make it look more active,I have visited most of the Fiverr Clone but non looks active and most of them are POORLY MANAGED!
    Remember two gigs saying-
    I will take $5 from you for $5!
    I will do nothing for $5!

    Miss management you see...remember,first impression is the last impression.


    Don't Keep unrealistic charges!-
    Fiverr clone offers service in $5,$10,$25 till $100!! Pathetic!Why will anyone pay more if can get his job done in $5 from original Fiverr?
    Keep the charges somewhere between $7..out of which $5 or may be $6 for the vendor and rest for you!
    Even if you want to give the liberty to the vendors for offering service in more than $5..keep it in "A must reviewed".Check the service yourself before approving it,if it is worth the money..let it be.If not..you know how to act diplomat :D


    Divide service area wise-
    This would build the trust of the buyer on the vendor more.Its always good to have a service from a local vendor rather than looking 1000 miles apart ;)
    Trust,good communication would be enhanced by this.

    Copy the pattern of BHW :D lolz...
    JR VIP!
    DONORS!
    etc etc ;)

    You know what I mean...create different categories of the vendors,like VIP seller, JR VIP seller,Supreme Seller,Ultimate Seller...I would like to begin with "Trusted Seller" and increase thereafter.
    Assign some good requirements to qualify and a bit of donation :D please keep it realistic...we can pay 100 bucks for JR VIP here but no one will pay more than $25 to get Trusted Seller badge....

    Provide some good benefits to them like their gigs lasts longer on page 1-2,or fix their gigs on category pages.

    I have seen something like this on few Fiverr Clone-
    "Pay now to get your Gig Featured"

    As a buyer,I won't give a damn to the Gig which is featured just because it has paid something to the owners,remember...quality counts.So don't even try to do something like this...but if you are still desperate to snatch some poor money,go for it.

    Placing adds or banners of other sites would hurt the professional look of your site.So, I won't recommend that.

    You can of course apply some other tricks of yours but remember two most important things-
    1.Keep everything realistic,I won't pay $100 for a job worth $5!
    2.Don't make the site look like you are too desperate to make money,be a professional.Act Professional.


    Well that's it...was just cleaning some of my business skills learnt from nowhere :p I would love to know if my post helped you somehow...Thanks for your time :)

    Cheers!!

    I saw one recently called fourerr. Not too bad of an idea I guess - a little bit cheaper.

    Ugh...just trying to set up a clone...Biverr seems to be very buggy, cant seem to find a decent version of the Php Valley script...

    Anyone gone any pointers in translating it into a different language?

    I would advice you to get a unique customized script,you may hire freelancer for that...the advantage is that you can get your desired editing job with no problems!

    A lot of good advice in there. I have had my clone now for 5 months and it is about the 7th largest out there now.

    What it REALLY all comes down to is advertising. If you can get the word out and drag in about 1000 people a day to look at it, you will be successful. Period.

    Actually some of my points are now implemented in Fiverr :D Like "Top Seller" and the country of every seller is mentioned along with the Gig! So I'm happy :D
