Today, service marketplace Fiverr has announced an update to its Android application, introducing seller features not previously available on any mobile platform. The app, which was originally released in March 2014, now gives Fiverr sellers new options, like the ability to update and respond to their Gig orders in real-time, without needing to be on a traditional computer.
This update aims to increase seller efficiency, as users can now deliver any appropriate Gigs directly from their mobile device, or create and edit Gigs from within the app. Users can also now view pending and cleared sales, as well as withdraw their revenue to their Paypal account without leaving the app.
While the Fiverr app can be used by both consumers and sellers, more than 30 percent of its Android community is comprised of sellers. The platform allows users to sell services and products (Gigs) for as low as $5 each, while top-rated sellers can offer single Gigs for up to $8,000. These Gigs may range from text translation services and copyediting, to image creation services and personalized video messages, among many others.
“More and more of our sellers are using mobile devices to work and manage their Gigs while on the go,” says Ariel Kedem, mobile product manager at Fiverr, in a statement. “This Android update provides the necessary tools to our Fiverr community so that they can have complete control of their services, regardless of location.”
