Fiverr is a freelance website or platform that connect people to people to share services in exchange for money. You can decide at any time to become a freelancer if you have a tangible service to render. As I said in the previous lesson that the amount of money you make depends on how the service you render is in demand.
On fiverr there are two types of account, the seller account and the buyers account.
Individuals on fiverr who give out jobs to sellers are called buyers. As a seller you can also give out job, at that time it can be said that you bought a gig even though you are a seller. Buyers on fiverr are the most important as they are the main source of money in the system, that is why any offense against them can’t go unpunished. In fact I have a friend whose account was banned due to some form of disagreement with a buyer.
Becoming a buyer on fiverr is as simple as ABC. It takes only few seconds to get it done. You can make yourself visible as a buyer on a seller account.
Sellers can be considered as workers. They do all the work on the system, without them nothing is done. Creating a seller account requires more work than buyers account. In fact, how you create your account determines if you will get a job or not.
