Fiverr Affiliate Program
Fiverr is the world’s largest marketplace for services starting at $5. A service offered on Fiverr is called a Gig. Gigs on Fiverr are offered for a fixed, base price of $5 (also referred to as one Fiverr).Do you use Fiverr as a business owner, entrepreneur or blogger and want to earn a commission by referring others to Fiverr? You can both use Fiverr and make money referring other people to your favorite services and freelancers through their affiliate program.
Overall using Fiverr been a good experience for me but I always recommend starting out with something small and then if you’re happy working with the freelancer again. For example, when I had a jingle written for a YouTube channel, we paid for the most basic gig first. After we got (and loved) it we paid for commercial rights. I also like paying someone to make pins out of my blog posts for Pinterest. I send all the images over and they make two versions for $5. Not bad. Just know that all sellers are not all are legit or as good as their portfolio. So expect to take time to find your favorites.
You can deep link (link directly to the page or freelancer you want to promote) or link to categories.
Why Be A Fiverr Affiliate?
Fiverr is a very diverse international marketplace with one of the highest conversion rates in the industry! They offer a wide range of services and have over 100 sub-categories, so it can fit many different angles. You can promote Creative services, IT developers, Video professionals, Writers, Business consultants, proofreaders, Editors, Designers, and much more.
What Does Fiverr Pay?
You can sign up for the Fiverr affiliate program on the Fiverr website directly. I prefer to sign up on a network that has other programs (detailed below) so I don’t have to remember or deal with a 1-off login. Fiverr’s program says they pay on a CPA basis (cost per action). The Default CPA for Fiverr’s affiliate program is $15 but for 15 SubCategories the CPA ranges between $25 up to $50. It’s an international program so you can earn even if your buyer isn’t in the United States. However, their program is hard to use. It’s difficult to find where to build links. They don’t tell you which categories you earn more on.
The Fiverr affiliate program is on at least two affiliate networks that are detailed below. The question I had was, which network pays out the highest commission or has the best terms?
Please note that it’s a good idea to sign up for Fiverr and use it before you promote it. I’ve used Fiverr to have jingles, logos, and illustrations created. I’ve hired people to install ad code or help fix a WordPress issue.
After you sign up, then apply to be an affiliate. You have to apply to the network first and once approved you are approved for every program, including Fiverr. You may not be familiar with some of these options (there wasn’t a lot on Google) so here are places you can find the Fiverr affiliate program.
Fiverr is on These 3 Affiliate Networks:
Panthera Affiliate Network
Panthera seems to be the best place to sign up for Fiverr based on the fact that their CPA is $12.75 which is really good. Once you apply to Panthera and get accepted, you can work with any of their programs. You are automatically approved.
Here’s what it looks like to sign up on Panthera (the landing page)
Like Panthera, once you’re approved for Skimlinks you can promote any of the brands that are on their network. The average commission rate for the Fiverr affiliate program on Skimlinks is: 91.46 % WOW. The rate is determined by taking the total commission rate paid divided by the order value. The Skimlinks dashboard looks almost identical to the one on Fiverr’s affiliate program.
The Earnings per Click or EPC is $.04 earnings per click across the network. EPC takes into account both the commission and the conversion rate.
To get your affiliate link go to Tools — Link Generator.
Fiverr on AWin – Formerly Affiliate Window
AWin pays on a CPA basis. They have Fiverr too and if you have other programs on AWin, it’s a good idea to sign up through them to keep it simple. They have two programs I’m most interested in – Etsy and Ali Express. It’s tough to compare but Skimlinks is a publisher on AWin…which means they are keeping some of the commissions. However, Skimlinks is easier to use.
- $15 flat rate commission for first time buyers
- $7 flat rate for cashback partners
- United Kingdom
- United States of America
AWin requires a $5 deposit which is refunded to you. Sign up here. After you are approved you have to then apply for the Fiverr affiliate program. The best part about AWin is they have a WordPress plugin that automatically converts your regular links into affiliate links for any brands you’ve been approved to work with. That saves a ton of time. If you’re linking to a lot of different pages on Fiverr that alone might be worth signing up under AWin. They also have a browser extension to make building links easier and faster.
Note: Affiliate networks can change – Fiverr has been on ShareASale but are no longer there.
