There are many different opinions about Fiverr, some positive, some negative. These opinions leave many people confused and they always hesitate in taking their first step on Fiverr.

We have covered a lot of topics on Fiverr but I still get messages from people asking, “Is Fiverr safe for sellers?”, “Is it really a legit platform?” “Can we trust Fiverr for buying or selling a service?”, and so many other such questions. So, I decided to write a detailed article on this topic for sellers to help them clear all of their doubts.

In this 15th article of the FREE Fiverr Series, we’ll be discussing if Fiverr a legit website for sellers or not. Parallel to that, we’ll also learn about the different seller levels on Fiverr.

So after using Fiverr for more than 4 years now, I can safely say that it is safe for sellers and buyers as long as all the transactions are done within this platform. While working on Fiverr, you never have to worry about losing your money because all the payments are managed by Fiverr itself. I never faced any problem with my transactions on Fiverr. Also, I have long-term buyers on Fiverr who acquire my services and pay me well in return.

The only reason Fiverr gets a lot of negative reviews is because of the people present there. Fiverr holds buyers and sellers from every part of the world so it is natural to have a fraction of non-serious people. Scams on Fiverr are only possible if you give scammers a chance to play with you.

Tips for Sellers on Fiverr to Avoid Scam

If you want to avoid scams of Fiverr as s seller, here are some tips for you:

  1. Always deal with buyers on Fiverr. Never take the transaction part outside the platform because most of the time it results in you losing money. Parallel to that, if Fiverr detects that you are taking deals outside, it blocks your account right away.
  2. Be very clear with the words in your gigs. Mention everything clearly to avoid any kind of inconvenience later. If a buyer asks for additional services that are not mentioned in your gig, you can contact customer support and report the case there.
  3. While you are working on a buyer’s project, stay in contact by messaging regularly about your progress. This helps to avoid order cancellations later.
