Fiverr has many features that cater to the needs of businesses and large teams. One such feature is the Fiverr Business section of the platform. If you’re new to Fiverr, you may wonder how you can make a Fiverr Business account.
The 6 steps to make a Fiverr Business account are:
- Log in or create a Fiverr account
- Click Join Fiverr Business
- Enter your personal and business details
- Add a payment card
- Create your Fiverr Business workspace
- Add people to your team
Below, I’ll go into more detail about how to make a Fiverr Business account so that you can get you and your team set up today. It’s easy to do, and once you set up your account you can start making use of Fiverr’s Business account benefits right away.
Note: Fiverr Business is now called Fiverr Pro, but it’s largely just a rebrand, and the features mentioned here still apply!
How Much Is A Fiverr Business Account?
Fiverr Business accounts are free to set up, although they did used to cost $149 per year. Fiverr scrapped this fee recently, meaning you can take advantage of everything that Fiverr Business has to offer for no extra cost, other than the costs of the freelance services you use.
This means Fiverr Business/Pro is worth trying out even if you’re unsure if it’s for you. At no extra cost (above the costs you will pay for the orders you place with freelancers), it could be worth trying if you have a large team with many projects on the go. But if you’re operating a solo venture, it may not be worth it unless you also have many different projects going on at once.
It’s really best for larger teams as the key features of Fiverr Business are centered around collaboration. However, if you think this will suit your business, let’s take a closer look at how you can set up your account today.
6 Steps To Make A Fiverr Business Account
1. Go To The Fiverr Business Page
Head to this page to access the Fiverr Business portal.
2. Click Try Fiverr Business For Free
Click the big green button and you’ll be prompted to either join Fiverr or create a new account if you already have one (more on that in the next section).
3. Enter Your Personal And Business Details
You’ll then be asked to enter some personal and business details, such as your website if you have one and any social media profiles you want to connect to Fiverr. If you already have a Fiverr account, you may need to make a new one if you’re a seller, or merge your existing buyer account if you wish.
We talk more about this in the next section, as it’s important you understand that you’ll lose access to any funds you have in your buyer account if you do decide to merge them.
4. Add A Payment Card
You can then add a payment card that you and your team will use to place orders with freelancers. You can change this later if you want, and you can set a limit so that nobody in your team is able to go over budget.
5. Create Your Fiverr Business Workspace
You can then click Create Your Fiverr Business Workspace to finish setting up your Fiverr Business account.
6. Add People To Your Team
When you’re ready, you can then add people to your team by inviting them via email. You can add as many team members as you like to your workspace, making this especially useful for teams of 20+ people.
Can You Convert A Normal Fiverr Account To A Business Account?
You can convert a normal Fiverr account to a Fiverr Business account provided it’s a buyer account you have, not a seller account. If you have a seller account, you’ll need to make a separate one for your Fiverr Business activity. If you have a buyer account, you can merge this with a Business one.
However, it’s worth noting that if you decide to merge your existing buyer account with your new Business account, you’ll lose access to any funds you had in your buyer account. To get a refund, you’ll need to contact Fiverr customer support. To avoid this, you can just create a new account (it’s free).
How To Switch From Fiverr Personal To Business Account
To switch from a Fiverr personal account to a Fiverr Business account, simply merge your Fiverr buyer account at the first stages of creating your Business account. You’ll then be prompted to click ‘Convert my account’ and this will change your personal account into a business one.
Note that you cannot convert the Business account back to a personal account unless you are the admin, and any people you have in your workspace will lose their Fiverr accounts and have to create new ones if they want to use the platform again.
How To Close Your Fiverr Business Account
To close your Fiverr Business account, access your settings and go to Account Deactivation. You can only do this if you are the admin of the Fiverr Business account, but if you’re just a member of a team, you can ask your admin to remove you, and this will close your Fiverr account.
Do You Need A Fiverr Business Account?
You don’t need a Fiverr Business account if you’re using the platform for business activities, but if you’re working with a large team on many projects, it may offer some helpful features for you. It’s not necessary to use Fiverr Business if you’re a solo venture or operating a small team.
The Fiverr Business platform is really designed for larger teams that need an easy way to collaborate on many projects with lots of different freelancers. You get access to your own success managers which can streamline your workflows, and your entire team can communicate on the platform about every project you have on the go.
It’s also an easy way to organize your favorite freelancers, and you can save the ones you like working with to various lists for easy access. This may not be useful for smaller teams or those operating a one-person business, but given it’s free to make a Fiverr Business account and you can revert back to a normal account if you wish, it could be worth giving it a shot.
It’s easy to make a Fiverr Business account, and you can do it in just 6 steps. It’s a great way for larger teams to collaborate on one platform with many different freelancers. While not essential for small businesses, it’s free to make an account, meaning it could still be worth setting up.
