How to Create Fiverr Gig

img: Fiverr

Fiverr is one of the world’s largest marketplace for digital services offers both buyers and sellers a digitally streamlined transactional platform. The unique term for a service offered by a seller on Fiverr is called a ‘Gig.’  When creating Gigs, sellers can choose their starting price point. Sellers can take this a step further and offer Gig Packages to buyers by using Gig Packages. These contain multiple price ranges and sellers can offer buyers various and tailored service packages. In this way, buyers can pick and choose from all that’s offered according to their particular requirements.

The service you offer and sell in the marketplace is called a “Gig.” Your Gig is an opportunity to showcase your talent to potential buyers, and to provide them with all the information they may need before they choose to place an order with you.

Creating a Fiverr Gig

To create Fiverr Gig account, follow the steps below

  1. Log in > Switch to Selling > Gigs
  2. Click My Profile > Create a New Gig

Step 1: Gig overview

Gig Title

  • Make sure that your title is short, clear, and to the point.
  • Buyers should recognize the type of service that you offer immediately.
  • Fiverr helps you start with ”I will…”


  • Select the appropriate category and subcategory for your Gig from the drop-down menu. Fiverr recommends these based on your title.
  • You won’t be able to change your Gig’s category after it’s published, so choose carefully and ensure that the category matches the services you’re providing.
    Note: Gaming is not a category. If you provide services related to Gaming, select a category related to Gaming (or define the criteria in the Gig Metadata area further down).
    Example: If your service is Game Design, select Graphics & Design > Game Design

Service Type

  • Choose a service type to make sure that you appear in the search results of the category you selected
    Note: This is only available for certain categories

Gig Metadata

  • Select the relevant criteria for each topic

Step 2: Scope and pricing

Name your package

  • Describe the details of your offering in the area provided

Delivery Time

  • Use the drop-down to select the number of days it will take for you to complete your Gig
  • Select the various items you’d like to include in your service (Extras).
    Note: This depends on the type of service you are offering.
    Example: If you offer logo design services, you can select options from a predefined list of items, such as the number of logos to include, the source files, or a high-resolution file.


  • Use the drop-down to select the number of revisions you include in your Gig.
  • This is not mandatory, but it is recommended for Gigs that include customization or creation.


  • Select a price for your service—ranging from $5, up to the maximum price for the type of Gig.
  • In certain categories, you have the option to create 3 packages—Click 3 Packages or Try Now. If you create 3 packages, your customized extra services will be available to buyers when they reach the checkout page.
