Fiverr.com Sparks New Breed of Business, Rewarding and Unlocking New Money-Making Features for Its Active SellersLeading Micro-Entrepreneurship Site Adds Level System, Enabling More Sellers to Earn a Living Through Fiverr's Powerful Global Platform (January 10, 2012)
TEL AVIV, ISRAEL -- (Marketwire) -- 01/10/12 -- Fiverr.com, a global marketplace for buying and selling services for as little as $5, today announces a game-changing new level system, opening benefits to more sellers that are looking to the site as a primary source of income or way to expand their business. Fiverr will now unlock new sales tools, rewarding users for superior sales performance, customer service and positive community interaction -- and the benefits keep getting better as users reach each new level. With this launch, Fiverr.com continues to reshape the way we work, providing buyers and sellers across more than 200 countries with a fun, feature-rich platform to engage, sparking a new breed of business: micro-entrepreneurship.
"We're helping entrepreneurs make more money and grow their businesses with even better selling and pricing options, giving them access to tools, support and resources previously only available to select top-sellers," said Micha Kaufman, co-founder and CEO of Fiverr.com. "We have so many creative, dedicated sellers, and we're excited to now be able to recognize them for their hard work and dedication to growing their business with Fiverr."
How It Works
- Fiverr users are promoted to the first two levels using an automated moderating system based on sales performance, customer care and positive community interaction. Fiverr editors promote candidates from the highest level of sellers to reach top-rated status
- At each level, sellers gain access to increased selling and pricing options beyond the basic $5 service
- Once promoted to a new level, sellers receive information on new tools, features and resources available to them
Level 1 Sellers: Unlocks ability to sell multiple orders and service add-ons
Level 2 Sellers: Unlocks additional features designed to meet the needs of more advanced sellers
Top-Rated Sellers: Unlocks access to more extensive features than all previous levels, with highest earning opportunities
Kaufman adds, "Both sellers and buyers will benefit from this new level system. For sellers, they get to increase their opportunities to make money -- turning their part-time gig into full-time income. For buyers, they still get to try out Fiverr services risk-free for only $5. And now they can order larger, more advanced services from reputable sellers."
Fiverr lets people work on their own terms, supporting creative micro-entrepreneurs with a global platform for monetizing their skills, talents and resources. By eliminating traditional barriers -- such as physical location, capital, and visibility -- Fiverr provides users with the tools required to be a true micro-entrepreneur, including efficient ways to collect payments, manage orders, exchange files and communicate to buyers. Fiverr offers a new way of thinking about work in a world where 9-to-5 is no longer the only choice.
The Fiverr community of buyers and sellers is far-reaching and diverse, including everyone from college students to executives, housewives to professionals to senior citizens, all offering a slice of their time and talent. Fiverr currently lists more than 500,000 jobs, or "gigs" from all over the world, across several categories -- from quirky gigs to essential office tasks.
