How Can Buyers Make Money
You might be wondering how buyers who dont have any skill make money on fiverr
How possible you might say!
The way out is the word “AFFILIATE“
A simple, effortless and straightforward process.
What is an Affiliate?
In general terms. an affiliate is a person who markets a manufacturer’s products and services in exchange for a paid commission made on each sale he makes through the customers he markets the products to.
And that is what fiverr rewards the buyer/affiliate when a customer (who the buyer/affiliate brings) makes a purchase.
That is how it operates.
This video below gives us a brief description of what the fiverr affiliate system is all about.
Please watch below:
let me lead you through the steps to follows below;
You can register as a fiverr user(buyer or seller) or directly as an affiliate.

From you take a look at the dashboard, there are several parameters we will treat briefly as stated below;

Media Reports are reports that displays number of impressions from traffic visitors, clicks of such visitors, commissions for each sale that the visitors have made through your link, number of registrations made by them and FTB.
While Registration reports showcases the monthly registrations details of your customers(those who purchased via your link), in terms of tracking code, language, type, size, AFP, brand etc.

Once approved, payments are requested at the beginning of the following month and are done once on a net 30 basis.
For example, if you have earned the $100 mark and above in January, requests can be made within the 1st week of February.
These provide you your sub-affiliate link and number of your sub-affiliates (those who registered via your link)
These are handpicked services (by fiverr) to help you maximize your earnings and build, grow, and scale every affiliate channel. They cover facebook, Instagram, web blog and YouTube.
These are the percentage earnings you make when an fiverr user comes through your affiliate link and makes a purchase on various fiverr platforms such as unified plan, AndCo, fiverr hybrid, fiverr CPA and fiverr learn.
This section displays all the earnings you have made within a selected range of time.
NOTE: Before fiverr makes any final payments to its affiliates after payment requests has been made, they check for fraudulent or violation of terms activities first. So make sure you deal business legitimately to avoid issues.
And read and follow the terms of services rules too.

ACCESSING YOUR AFFILIATE LINKS
Your Affiliate link is what you use to bring in and track any new customer on fiverr and has a 12-month tracking cookie, meaning if you will earn a commission if your customer registers and makes a purchase within that 12 months.
Locating Your Default Links
To locate your default Affiliate link, go to your dashboard, go to Marketing Tools and click on “Default and Deep Links“.
This action will take you to where your affiliate links are for all fiverr products platforms as shown below;
The Link for CPA platform is your main default link in yellow color.
That is the one you should promote.
It looks like this (fiverr CPA link) as shown below;
The commission for the CPA link varies from $15-$50 depending on the categories of services. For example, the following categories shown below attracts a commission of $50, meaning if a buyer purchases any service under these through your CPA link, you earn $50.
Isnt that sweet?
Other categories of services attract $40, $30. $25 and $15.
You can see them here; Fiverr Affiliate Commission Plan
Here is a brief summary of all affilaite links you can promote for different fiverr products platforms;
Fiverr CPA Link:
This link directs your users to fiverr homepage and earns you a commission for a category service accordingly only once for first purchase.
Here, you earn a fixed commission on all category service + recurring 10% share on every purchase for 12 months
you earn a commission if your user purchase a learning course.
This directs your users to AndCo page and you earn commission for any transaction done there.
Creating Your Deep Links
Fiverr Affiliate system offers you the opportunity to promote any specific products, services and courses on its various platforms if you wish to.
This is where you need to create what we call “Deep Links” and this video below explains how to create one;
Before we conclude on this,
An alternative to the CPA link is the Hybrid link.
The difference between the 2 is that CPA link pays you commission($50, $40, $30, $25 or $15) ONLY ONCE for any first time buyer who purchases a category service while if you promote the hybrid link, you earn $10 from first purchase + 10% of recurring purchases for 12 months.
So the choice is yours.
But if you seek my opinion on what to choose, i will suggest you go for Fiverr CPA Link.
It pays in the long run.
And the last but not the least of all the topics is…………
PROMOTION OF YOUR AFFILIATE LINKS
This is the most important aspect of this tutorial.
This is all about exposing your links to the internet world through various channels.
Channels such as the following below:
Invest In Website Banners and Text Ads
High traffic websites offer banner and text spaces for promotion of links for a fee. And one good place to locate them is BuySellAds.
Here is what you do;
Visit the link, create an account as an advertiser and search for niche that relates to what you want to promote e.g internet marketing, SEO, web design etc.
Then, pick out websites you want to advertise on (based on certain factors such as budget, niche, size, type etc) and place your advert.
Luckily enough, Fiverr has provided us with different sorts of banners for our affiliate marketing purposes as you can see below;
You can access them in the “All marketing Tools” in your affiliate dashboard
A good example of such advert is as shown below:
Text Advert: You input your shortened fiverr link.
If you target high traffic sites, surely you will get some referral visitors to fiverr and eventually make some earnings.
Social Media Promotion
Create social media pages and insert your affiliate link in them.
A good one is creating a youtube channel, creating a video about fiverr and uploading it. Then, in the video description, you shorten your link using tinyurl or bitly and input it in there.
An example is as shown below;
Do same for Twitter, Facebook and others as well.
Promote On Online Communities
They are Yahoo Answers, Quora, Reddit, Medium, Answer the Public and HARO.
The key to successful promotion on these content sites is post relevant comments and articles that are useful for readers while inputing your fiverr link in the process.
WARNING: But I must warn you, Not all of these sites accept posting of affiliate links. make sure you read its terms of rules before you deal with them to avoid account suspension or ban.
But on that of Medium, you are free to post affiliate links provided you issue a disclaimer on it which is part of the rules of medium site.
So all you do is this;
Visit www.medium.com and create an account.
After that, go to your user profile and click “New Story”
which will take you here;
You can now start writing an article. inserting your fiverr link within but as i said before make sure you issue a statement about the affiliate link or your article will be removed and your account may be banned.
See an article i write on medium with a disclaimer about my affiliate link below;
On Quora and Reddit, Affiliate links are NOT allowed or your account may be banned but you can promote indirectly by creating a blog website, writing an article in it with your affiliate link in it and promoting that website link instead.
That is what i did and it works for me.
On Yahoo Answers, it comes with it own rules in which you have to be on level 3 before you are qualified to post LIVE Links.
So, respond to more and more questions to attain level 3 status.
Answer related questions with useful comments and input your fiverr link as a source.
That is it,
But please as i have said before, read the terms of services and rules before interacting with these online communities sites.
Create a Promotional Website/blog
This is one method i use personally to promote mine too.
So, instead of promoting your links indiscriminately all over the internet and getting banned, you can create fiverr promotional website, write high quality content alongside your link within and promote that website instead.
Setting up a website blog involves getting a good web-hosting and a domain name.
I recommend you use a BlueHost Webhosting (which i use personally for this site you are reading) because they are cheap and offer great customer support.
To utilize this very well, go for backlinks on High Authority websites such as TED, MOZILLA, Microsoft, Amazon, DELL etc.
Now, how do we do it?
Google such websites out, create user profile and input your fiverr gig related keywords in the “website name/title” space and your fiverr link in the “website url” space all in your profile settings as shown below:
I have written an article specifically for you on this here: How to create High Quality backlinks
That will be all for now.
To sum it all, lets us listen to Jay Froneman, who is a fiverr affiliate, takes on how he runs his affiliate business and become successful in it.
Lets watch together below:
I hope i have done justice to this topic to meet your satisfaction.
As times goes on, we will continue to upgrade this tutorial with fresh updates for our readers.
But before i close down finally, i want to state something clear here.
Dont begin to wail unnecessarily if you do NOT see positive results now or 2 weeks or even a month time.
Promotion is a CONSISTENT and PERSISTENT effort, hence to succeed, a lot of CONSISTENCY, HANDWORK, SMARTWORK and PERSEVERANCE is demanded of you.
But i assure you that if you remain resolute, your link will gain traction overtime and the dollars will begin rolling in.
And lest i forget, do more research on your own too.
As the saying goes
Rome was not built in a day
