How to compete with 3rd World Country seller who do everything for just $5?


Recommended Posts

Fiverr now allow us set price more than $5 for a gig, I upgraded to GigPackages and it doing fine for me.

Recently I saw some seller from third world country offering HIGH QUALITY service in my category for $5! I bet it took them at least 2 hours in-order to finish THAT $5 gig.

Well it’s not any one fault, I just feel a little bit unfair that we’re in 1st or 2nd country which high in expenses $5 to us is really not much.

How you guys think about this?
