midsummervoice Posted April 30 Share Posted April 30 As a voice-over service provider, I would like to gather feedback and suggestions from fellow professionals in our field on an issue I believe could benefit from improvements on the Fiverr platform. The current terminology surrounding the "Commercial Voice-Over License" has led to confusion and friction between buyers and sellers, and I think a simple change in language could help streamline the process for all parties involved. The term "Commercial" is commonly associated with "Advertisement," causing confusion when buyers learn that the Broadcast license is the appropriate choice for audio deliverables used in advertisements. This has led to an additional burden on sellers to explain that "commercial" refers to any business use, whether internal or external, rather than its traditional association with advertising. This then leads buyers to feeling bait and switched and that seller's are trying to create unnecessary upcharges when in fact they are just following Fiverr's terms and guidelines. This issue appears to be an oversight on Fiverr's part, and I believe many voice-over sellers and customer service representatives would appreciate a resolution to this recurring challenge. To address this confusion, I propose changing the term "Commercial License" to "Business License for Non-Broadcast Usage." This alternative terminology provides clearer guidance for buyers, sellers, and Fiverr staff alike, making the licensing process smoother and more efficient. I welcome any thoughts or suggestions from fellow voice-over service providers on this proposal. Together, we can help Fiverr improve its platform for everyone involved.
