Company Background

Fiverr is an Israeli online marketplace launched in 2010. It connects individuals and businesses with the on-demand talent they need for a wide range of digital services. This DIFM platform is commonly advertised as a platform to find cheap freelance service providers from as low as five dollars, which is the motivation behind the company’s name.

Plans & Pricing

Fiverr offers only one pricing option, which is a free plan. Buyers can register for free on Fiverr, and they don’t need to pay any additional fees to use the service apart from what they pay the freelancer. However, Fiverr charges an additional fee of 1% on payments below $20 and 5% on payments above that.

Portfolio & Experience

Fiverr is a robust platform for hiring freelancers for various digital services. Some top-rated services that users search for on this platform include logo design, transcription, video editing, and WordPress customization. Fiverr is a large marketplace for hiring visual designers, especially for logos, brochures, business cards, album covers, among other deliverables.

Design Process

Fiverr refers to clients as buyers and to freelancers that deliver digital services required as sellers. There are two main methods of finding someone (a seller) to handle your design projects (or gig) on Fiverr. You can either select a pre-existing gig or post a custom request to receive bids.

Choosing a pre-existing gig

Fiverr gigs (created by sellers) are grouped into eight umbrella categories and are several subcategories (as many as 400). To find a professional graphics designer for your infographics, for instance, you simply check the “graphic design” category and look under the infographic” subcategory to find gigs related to this niche. You can also do this to hire a freelancer from any other subcategory. An alternative is to search directly, then filter search results by seller skill level, time frame, price, and other conditions. Fiverr also provides tools like questionnaires which helps to narrow down search results in popular categories and gives more personalized results.

Posting a request

The second option for finding graphic designers on Fiverr is to create and post a custom request. Registered buyers can create a request on the account menu. You will be required to describe the services you are looking for and select the appropriate category. The request will be reviewed and approved by Fiverr staff, after which sellers can send in their bids. You can look through the profiles of the freelancers that send in their gig and choose the best option for you.
