    Is Fiverr actually a reseller of goods(gigs). Meaning that when I sell something I have actually sold it to Fiverr and then Fiverr has sold it to the user and not that i sold it to the Fiverr's user directly. After all Fiverr is actually paying me not some user.

    Than Paypal is reseller. People pay money through credit card to Paypal actually, than Paypal pays the actual providers. I know, there's going to be a world war 3 soon...

    So, What if fiverr is a reseller or not?

    Does it make any difference in your earnings? Stop over analyzing and over thinking things.

    That being said, my answer to your question is I don't know.. I don't give a shit.

    They are simply the middleman. They take 20 percent and provide you with a platform to make money. They are, after all, a business.

    On their forums they say they aren't resellers.

    My question for fiverr sellers with companies would be how do you invoice your customers from fiverr?

    Fiverr isn't a reseller, they are a marketplace like ebay and amazon.
    They match seller and buyer and for this, they charge 20%.

    I know why one may think that they are a reseller, but imo that's not the case.

    You don't invoice the buyer, all you have to do is transfer the payments from fiverr to your company's PayPal. After that, just treat this as any other income, your accountant should know what to do from there....

    If I do this way then i would be considering fiverr reseller. My company is from EU so I need to pay VAT for EU sales and by doing the way above i wouldn't pay any VAT which i obviously have to pay unless Fiverr is reseller.

    Absolutely not. Fiverr is just a platform to sell directly to customers that search Fiverr for gigs..
