Because im a new seller, should I keep my prices lower?

You are free to choose whatever price fits your service level. If you are better than them and you can offer higher value for money, ask for more. If you think you have a lower quality service than those persons, go for a lower pricepoint. The idea here is to be realistic about your service and price it accordingly. I think the best approach is to have a slightly smaller price than the perceived value. That way customers will feel they got a better deal, and obviously they will come back for more.

I see people offering the same services as I but they charge much more than I expected. Should I set my pricing around the same as them or should I keep it much lower?
Thanks

I think a good strategy is to price yourself 10 - 15% below the best sellers in your category. Naturally, that requires you to be just as good because the 10% off will be your differentiator as a new seller, and if your quality is lower, set your rates accordingly as my esteemed colleague @donnovan86 suggested. 

For the moment, your prices are low, but I'm more worried about your gig thumbnails, to be honest. They're not showcasing your best work. How can buyers know what they'll get if you're not showing them your very best right off the bat? If you wish to convert and get buyers, you will need some improvements in that regard, in my opinion.

Thank you lots for the responses - would you mind giving me any specific improvements i can make towards my thumbnails? You also said my prices are low - low as in too low or perfect low for a new seller?

Given that you're a designer and I'm not, I don't have much to contribute beyond what I've already said. Your thumbnails should showcase your best work examples and let the buyer know what they're getting using those visuals. I suggest looking at some of the top sellers in your category for inspiration - just don't copy them - but use it to give you an idea of what's possible and what works 🙂
