Fiverr allows people to list things they would do, for $5.
In return, Fiverr takes $1 from the value of the order, leaving the person providing the service with $4.
This can be withdrawn from the account, once they have accumulated $40 or more.
As you would imagine, there are plenty of weird and wacky offerings, or “Gigs” as they are called by Fiverr.
However, there are hundreds of potentially really useful things available.
genelors: I will setup a WordPress blog and configure your domain to it for $5
landee: I will be your personal assistant for 1 hour for $5
mzzedithandlucy: I will give you a 1/2 hour Juggling Lesson over Skype for $5
Payment is handled through PayPal, making it nice and easy to use.
When you place an order, you have to pay upfront, and then the order is fulfilled.
Just in case, there is a dispute procedure – but it’s unlikely you’ll ever need to use it!
So you can be sure of a timely delivery, there is a handy “number of orders in queue” displayed below the order button.
You can also contact the seller to clarify things before you part with your $5.
I for one, will be outsourcing some of those niggly little tasks to Fiverr.
Such tasks as resizing photos, installing WordPess etc… are perfectly suited!
