This includes information about how long it will take, how many revisions they will need, and how much per revision.
Although Fiverr has many positive aspects, there are also some downsides. These sellers can pose a threat to American businesses. One example is Big Fat Daddy’s catering business, which was destroyed when a competitor bought a five-dollar “fake review” gig. One-star Facebook reviews from people in other countries hurt his business. Eventually, Big Fat Daddy’s customers stopped ordering from him.
