Fiverr
As a seller, firstly they will let you run your services as long as you need, charging the most famous highest rate ever of 20% and another from the Buyer. In my experience, they would anytime suspend your gigs and kick you out especially when their algorithm makes your gigs shine on top of Buyer choices "unless" you start to "spend" what you earned on their platform, promoting your gigs, or taking training or whatsoever! The simplest way of doing it is picking up the easiest reason "Not complying with our Community Standard / Integrity / Policy " !! A policy that I doubt any of their staff read or understood! Or whatever comes on their way !! They tend to find all the ways to diminish your business and they would accept anything from anyone of their Buyers that helps on that as long as it is against you! P.S: Their decisions cannot be "undone" and not "discussable." As a Buyer, nothing special on the platform except a huge enormous security system that hinders innovation and the proper discussions with Sellers !! On another similar platform, you can Video call the Seller through any meeting app! In Fiverr, the maximum would be to find a data entry specialist! They are trying to expand .. true, but with their mentality in how business and innovation are being managed, how would you expect to have a Business Plan through a seller from the USA, who is not vetted and probably staying in Bangladesh and not the cute lady that you see her profile photo! Only cause the platform reads the IP address, easy to bluff!

Guru.com
VERY useful for small companies where one person does an entire job/task. May be less useful for larger companies, as it would be difficult to maintain, and there are usually teams to cover the slack. Also good for tech purposes. Our tech people constantly create Guru cards in order to help us learn to do back-end things.

Pros
Fiverr
  • Creating competition to work on one's projects. There are thousands of service providers on the site. As a result, any request for service will receive multiple responses. Also, Fiverr does a great job in vetting sellers with a star system that will gauge everything from response times to order delivery.
  • The communication and transactions systems set up by Fiverr are straightforward and seamless. Once you're engaged with your sellers, messaging between the two parties can be done through an inbox or on the order page. Payments are handled by Fiverr by placing a credit card on file.
  • Fiverr does a great job of exposing a buyer or a seller to an international audience.
  • Fiverr allows me to accumulate a list of my best sellers so that I can maintain contact and easily access their services again if needed.
  • As a seller, I'm exposed to a range of potential customers that would have not been within my reach otherwise.

Guru.com
  • The segmentation of information into Collections, boards and individual cards allows you to keep a good control and organization of information contained within.
  • An add-on app for Slack and a Chrome extension mean you don't even need to have the Guru.com site open to still be able to access all of your stored information.
  • The ability to allow some or all users to create & edit cards adds value and strengthens the team collaboration.

  • Relatively high fees taken out of earnings
  • Fake clients still get through, which causes a headache
  • Having to pay to get your bid higher up in the list of freelancers makes it even more costly

Alternatives Considered
Fiverr
Over the years, I've tried Freelancer, Guru, and Truelancer, but none of them measured up to Fiverr and I've long since abandoned trying to find a competitor. My relationship with Fiverr is on automatic pilot.
