Level 2 – To get to this level you have to have made over 50 orders in the past two months with excellent ratings. You get priority support, utilize up to $40 of gig extras and people can order way more gigs. You can earn up to $160 a gig.
Top Rated Seller – This is the highest level you can get on Fiverr. Unlike the first two levels where you get automatic promotion, Fiverr manually chooses Top Rated Sellers. You have to give exceptional customer service, amazing ratings and alot of sales. In return, you receive VIP support, access to BETA features and community leadership. You can set up 4 gig extras of up to $100 value. You can earn up to $500 for each gig!
What Will It Take To Earn A Full Time Income On Fiverr
The average Fiverr seller will not spend more than 15 minutes to complete a Gig.
If you spend a maximum of 15 minutes on 1 gig, then you can complete 4 gigs in a hour. Fiverr deducts $1 as their commission for every gig you complete. So that means you will receive $4 per each base gig. Therefore in a hour, you can make $16. So if you work 4 hours a day and 7 days a week, then you are earning a minimum of $448/wk. That’s only 16 orders a day. Imagine once you level up and can begin offering extras on your gigs.
So it’s a good thing that the average seller can work 4 hours a day and earn a full time income. And yes, many top sellers are earning even more than 6 figure income.
