As a two-sided digital marketplace business model Fiverr has two key players:

2. How to make cash

How does Fiverr make cash

Fiverr generates revenue primarily through transaction and services based fees.

When an order for a service is placed, buyers pay Fiverr the Gig price plus a 5% service fee with a minimum service fee of $2.

Upon successful completion of an order, Fiverr makes 80% of the Gig price available to you, the seller of the Gig.

As a marketplace, Fiverr succeeds when its buyers and you (as a seller / freelancer)  succeed.

As more buyers join the marketplace, they bring in more jobs which in turn drives more demand for the sellers.
