How about an annual membership for sellers?

Well i’m not suggesting they make it mandatory, but for sellers who want to take a gamble based on their projected growth it could be a nice option.



Fiverr would profit if they calculate it right. $1,000 was just a random number I threw out there, they have the analytics to figure out what would make it profitable. Could even be based on levels to some extent.

This kind of sounds to me like you want to go from a “fair” system to a system based on gambling or playing the odds. The 20% commission is cheaper than the 35% commission on another freelance site, but it still seem high in my opinion for the reasons jtengle mentioned. However, I would not pay $1000 up front, and if you are doing well enough to afford that, perhaps it is time to explore your other options. Seriously, $1000 is 20% of $5000. Why would fiverr want to lose the commission if you can confidently say you will make over $5000 a year? Personally, I like this the way it is. There are better places to make improvements.

That is nothing like gambling or playing the odds. It’s a membership nothing more. Example you can purchase a cell phone plan that’s based on minutes used or one that’s unlimited. Here you can go based on volume acquired or purchase unlimited. It’s a pretty standard and accepted business model.



$1,000 was just a random number I put out there. They should do analytics and come up with their own value that’s beneficial for them and if someone wants to take advantage they can. Not saying to make it mandatory.

I prefer the saying “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”. Fiverr is making good money doing it the way they always have and changing it would only frustrate some and take away from the simplicity of it.



Also, if it were something like your made up number of $1000, I’m sure it wouldn’t be far off, if not higher. So I don’t know how that would attract anyone except the upper echelon to pay that large up-front fee. No thank you.
