Fiverr billing price from consultant not what we agreed to


johnny_mn

Question

I am new to Fiverr and I have a job I posted, and the deal was for $40.

Consultant sends me a contract for $58 but tells me this is because Fiver charges a 20% fee.  

The problem is that 20% of $40 is $8.

Is he trying to con me? I want to pay but it's not what we agreed to or am I missing something here.

The seller is probably using USD, not CAD but neither of you is being clear on what $ you are using so confusion and miscommunication is winning. Fiverr will also take 5.5% plus a $2.50 small order fee off you if you accept, but that's nothing to do with the seller. 

Sellers take note: always mention the actual currency you are quoting in, even if it is just USD....

Fiverr does everything in the backend with USD, the other currency options are just there to make it easier to understand the price in your own currency. It's visual.  You don't need to use USD for the visuals, but obviously, miscommunications and misunderstandings are going to happen if you don't specify for the buyer.

Personally, I think it's just easier to work in USD. Sellers typically work in USD because that's the platform currency.

That's fair(mostly LOL).  

Maybe Fiverr should fully do all the translations.  if the site is going to show me the rate in my local currency, it should then also should the vendor my rate of pay when it is converted to their local currency, but I'm over simplifying what things should be 🙂
