Why do some sellers setup a gig dedicated only for tips?

There are several reasons why a client would like to come back later to leave a tip. For example:

  • Some gigs provide beneficial results for the buyer a week/month/year after the order was delivered.
  • Some buyers really want to leave a tip, but can’t afford to at the time of purchase.

Once I had a long discussion with a seller from whom I was considering buying a gig. She asked for an example of what I needed help with, then sent the example back to me with her sample work. She did that from her own volition and without requesting payment. And she spent a lot of time on messaging back and forth. So I wanted to tip her for all that.

I (as a seller) have a tip jar myself, but I’ve put my own spin on it.

I created a tip jar gig once for a particular regular who wanted to leave a tip for some advice I’d given (the advice ended up being that what he wanted had a simple solution, and he didn’t need to pay someone to do it). If I had more gigs, I’d leave it up there I think, but as it is it’s paused and available to turn on if I need to. It would have been useful the other day though when a buyer bought a $10 gig just to leave me a tip as a thank you for after-order service.

@capitalquality You bring up something that I have never been able to figure out: you said your tip jar gig is paused. Does that not count towards your vacation days limit?

I like tip gigs. I wish more sellers had it.

Fiverr charges a processing fee every single time I tip. I hate paying that fee as much as ATM surcharge, credit card interest, etc.

When my sellers have a tip gig, I can give them a gratuity of say $20 after every 2nd, 3rd or 4th order. It would basically save me $3 in processing fees - which I can spend on buying more gigs instead of giving to Fiverr.

During the holidays, I randomly pick a few of my regulars and give them a tip with whatever extra money that I have as a “thank you” for taking care of me. Those that didn’t have a gratuity, I bought a regular gig and sent them a virtual card.

I wonder what one of my seller would do if I asked him or her to create a tip gig? Is it hard or complicated to set up a gig?

@gina_riley2 You can also ask them for a custom order so you can tip them.

Receiving tip from order page is going to give you TIP+1 review while in most cases receiving another order for exclusively for TIP will get you 2 reviews

1 for previous sale + 1 for tip, Usually buyers who are happy just click 5 stars twice if they need to.

I find this wrong to receive 2 reviews for 1 order, Means on every successful sale you are receiving $5 tip + 2 reviews 1 for your gig and another goes to your profile.

Which will eventually work for making you TOP RATED SELLER and will increase your overall RATING and RANKING POSITION

People here are genius

@jhallawalla How did you get to this? I would be shocked if any seller’s tip gig has more than a few orders. And no one here is a TRS because of a tip gig.

In addition, if a buyer wants to leave a tip, they usually do so when accepting the order.

There are a few situations where a tip jar entirely makes sense, and I wrote those in my comment above. 🙂

I don’t know what you mean by “click 5 stars twice.”

**Anyway, happy tipping to all (giving and receiving) 🎁

I thought that pausing a gig equals vacation mode for that gig, and that there is a limited amount of days per year sellers can be ‘on vacation.’

They’re independent of each other. You go on vacation mode, not your gigs. If you’re on vacation mode your gigs will be paused so that people can’t contact you, but pausing an individual gig manually has no affect on vacation mode.

No, it isn’t. However, maybe they already have the maximum number of gigs, or don’t want to create a tip gig for whatever reason.

I am not against tipping, But keeping another gig for tips only is a smart idea of collecting more n more reviews, Put yourself in a situation where i bought 1 of your service you delivered the work and i rated you five stars, Then if i decide to give you tip i will place another order to your tip gig and will leave a 5 star rating there as well because you did great for me. So technically you received 2 reviews for 1 job. Which is not right i guess, Also no one can tell how TRS is made NO ONE, Not even TRS knows that how and why they are promoted to the elite class except for the fact for providing a better service than others and then again, a better service is determined through popularity and rankings which comes with positive reviews only 🙂 How many top rated sellers you have seen with 200 reviews ?

I think we might not be on the same page (yet 🙂 )

What I mean, is that buyers are not interested in helping sellers get more reviews. If they want to tip on the order page, they will. If they want to tip later, they’ll do so with the tip jar gig.

They are tipping because they want to tip, not because they want the seller to have two reviews instead of one.

Yes. . .?

By the way–your sentence in your profile (help…) is genius! 🙂
