    I hear a lot of good and bad stories about fiverr and here's what I think. Fiverr is a great place to get mmedium qualify stuff for low prices, many people will lie in there descriptions to make the sale but fiverr customer support always gets to the bottom of it. If you can afford the time to find a trusted seller then it's good! What do you think

    Im a level 2 seller on Fiverr tho i dont get sales these days because i stopped the gig i which used to get me most of my sales.

    Fiverr is great if you are offering something which is unique and top of the line

    Else you will have to promote your gigs to get orders

    I have made 4k from fiverr and i was satisfied

    Its tricky to find a way to make money from it. Also, there are some gigs it is great for (citations,some graphic design) and others it is horrible for (Link Building).

    Never had a problem. You just need to know your game.

    Don't order 10K Scrapebox blasts. Instead order something like a Video testimonial or Blog Post on a domain with DA 50+.

    I like Fiverr but you have to know what you are talking about to the people who are offering their expertise. Most of the time when I tell a Fiverr advertiser that I am a programmer - entrepreneur looking for partners to help solve problems they disappear in one 24 hour clock cycle.

    I love fiverr. Ive never had a problem with anyone there. Then again, I only buy from people that have established profiles with a decent amount of feedback. If I cant find the service I need that meets those requirements, I usually end up doing it myself or finding someone else to do it. Fiverr can be really sketchy sometimes, but if you know how to look for the golden profiles, then your good.

    I used it for graphic design and it was great.
    The seller did a revision when I wasn't satisfied with the end result

    By my expiriences as a seller and buyer, all i had was positive things. I bought many things from video testimonials to audio voice-over and such, i would recommend if you are buying, that you do it with a legit member - that way you minimize that things will go wrong.

    As a seller on fiverr, just add samples, get your gig organized as much as possible so it attracts new people, there is alot of competition tho.

    some retard had purchased my services worth 65$ for which I got paid 52$ , so after 25 days when I had the money in my account , thought of using it for later , this MF opens a paypal claim , not even fiverr , that too after successfully delivering and gets everything reversed ,... so basically I lost all my money!

    so some buyers are scammers on fiverr too!

    I also just started fiverr and have not made much sales although i guess its the type of service and the promotion part of your gigs that will get you buyers, promoting your gigs is a vital part but not easy to do since options are limited.
    Also there are so many GIGS out there that are on the featured page that seem so stupid yet when you click the gig that user has like "10 in Queue" so that intrigued me, I also added some weird and crazy gig services myself

    Conclusion : People do make money on fiverr!

    Yeah I have had a few people do that to me as well. I contacted Fiverr and even though I delivered proof of work complete, Fiverr just said "well we weren't paid so you don't get paid either."

    It was then I removed most of my decent gigs from Fiverr and started promoting them myself, increasing my margins greatly and not putting me at the mercy of another company. I already have Paypal to worry about, there is no reason to add another variable to that mix :p

    From the buyer perspective, I use Fiverr mostly for data-entry type work since I don't have the need for a full-time VA, but every once in a while I do need someone to manually fill out local citations and things like that.

    some people are really sick! so the things is paypal or not , a scammer will scam if he wants to, just that the chances are less.

    Yes and being at the mercy of one company is better than being for two, unless you have no option there!

    There are enough good gigs, just takes some time to filter the bad ones out
