It is simple to hire a Fiverr Freelancer for a gig. The first step is creating a Fiverr account. The simplest way is with your email address. After entering your email address, just enter a username and password and click on the “Join” button.

Next you must select a service from the categories provided. For example, if you selected Website Design, you might find a gig to create a website, a gig to customize a website, or a gig to fix a website bug. Once you have decided what best describes your needs, the next step is to vet the freelancers.

There are several ways to compare the available freelancers. First, there is a star ranking system based on reviews of the freelancer’s prior gigs. There is an overall ranking as well as a “seller communication” ranking, a “service as described” ranking and a “would recommend” ranking. There are also written reviews. Second, you should review the freelancer’s profile which tells you how long they have been a Fiverr Member, the languages they speak, where they are from, their skills and certifications. Their location is important because they may be working while you are sleeping. Also, review their frequently asked questions for more information about the freelancer and the gig. Lastly, chat with the freelancer prior to buying their services. Make sure that you can communicate with them, discover their daily schedules, and most of all make sure the gig covers what you need and has an acceptable timeframe.

Once you have chosen a freelancer and package, click the “Continue” button, choose from the selection of extras and click the next “Continue” button. Next select a payment option and pay. Fiverr holds the payment until the freelancer sends the final work product and either (1) you accept the work product or (2) three days pass without such acceptance and such time period is not extended. If you need an extension request it from the freelancer.

Once you have paid the freelancer will contact you and the gig will begin.
