    That's very true. A lot of those services are outsourced to cheaper vendors.

    I had multiple accounts at one time and running all my gigs to one paypal account and all of a sudden they would not allow that. I had to set up individual paypal account to get paid. Not sure.... Fiverr has a boat load of traffic and is very easy to get seen if your consistant.

    I was surprised myself. I only know that it works for those Social Media sites. There are other vendors that are willing to provide similar services for less than $5.

    It's all about Arbitrage!

    I tried fiverr for a month once. Well, after that month I had spent hundreds of hours working for buyers. I ended up making 20$. That's nearly as much as the children who work in clothing fabrics. :)

    I think if you're looking to make money off Fiverr, it's best to outsource your work. It's not worth your time for $5. Unless you're just using Fiverr as a marketing channel to draw people to purchase your services outside of Fiverr by adding your personal contact in the delivered product.

    Just to clear things up I am earning on average around $1,200 per month from those 4 dollar gigs. I spent the time early and created products just the one time. Then I resell and resell. How long does it take you to upload a file? Key is you want to overdeliver to your customer. I look at it as a screening process to find clients I'm willing to invest my time with. Those who purchase a five dollar gig are 80% more likely to buy into your main product later on down the road. Its working time and time again for me. Like I said, one of the easiest ways to make money online. Great place to get your feet wet a little.

    Yeah actnews is right, they have nearly the whole market and make a lot of profit without doing so much work. Is this a rumor thread?

    I don't care about Fiverr problems.
    The best thing to do in order to protect your business (and your profits too) is diversification. Use a mix of solutions to get more security, you will be safe

    Fiver is like those cheap trinket stores, people buy a few things then figure out they are pretty worthless and move on.

    Fiverr is still very popular. I agree with the above post that Seoclerks is coming on very strong. I much prefer Seoclerks.

    Thanks for all the responses, of note when I looked at the sellers forum on fiverr, I notice a few people (Sellers) are leaving fiverr and posting about it - not me creating a myth! (GORF take note :) Just look around on the sellers forum on fiverr. I will now look at seoclerks as it sounds like they maybe on the up

    Indeed man - just as I was saying to Ethan... the evidence is speaking for itself louder than ever - simply stroll over to their forums & check out their alexa.com reviews (random I know, but if people are upset enough to take the time it takes to post an alexa review, you know its gotta be getting bad :p

    Se La Vi Fiverr - RIP 2013 - Viva La Clerks!!! :cool:

    Exactly! It was one of the most original business models i have ever seen at first, but honestly - it is not a coincidence that you would have been hard pressed to hear ANYONE
    talking poorly about fiverr - because EVERYONE still had the opportunity to make $$ based on a logical search/gig ranking system, where as the more authority you get - the more you get noticed... The week they accept the corporate buyout, the payment system was hacked & tons of user info was lost (cannot confirm this due to the silence on behalf of fiverr, however the source I heard that from, works inside of Fiverr, so not spreading rumors) - After that whole fiasco was resolved and the 2 weeks of payments which had backed up were all sent out, you see the mass exodus start... So looking at it rationally, it makes sense that when you accept the corporate handout (which Fiverr DID NOT HAVE TO DO) they then adopted the corporate restructure on one hell of an epic scale. Literally overnight, the same customer service rep you had gotten to know over the past 2 years & who would respond to your support tickets in no less than 24 hours - suddenly cannot even be bothered to actually type you a response to your question, rather simply copying and pasting some standardized message & creating even more frustration. From my experience with Brand Development, this move is what sealed their fate & why I am more than comfortable expressing my views about them, because regardless of how much argument my posts might stir up (for better or worse), the information contained within is relevant and check-able & comes from many years of honest experience selling gigs since Fiverr first opened their doors. When it comes to Gig sites & sales, most of us our dino's by now, and this new wave of sellers (or should i just say scrapers & resellers) that you see sprawled all over the front page of fiverr on their 4 hour old account which is outranking you after getting 100 sales a week, now your down to 2, lol) Anyone who takes this relatively serious in the sense of a strong way to earn extra $$, only has to spend a week or so on the fiverr 2.0 and they come running to SEOClerks

    SEOClerks.com has the potential to beat fiverr one day, they have high quality of gigs, great support, multiple withdrawal methods (with very less or 0% charges), social bumps, and dozens of unique features. They also came up with their new marketplace i.e. ListingDock.com, excellent place to showcase your crafted items.
