How do I create a Fiverr account?

Disclaimer: Fiverr's Terms of Service require that all users be at least 18 years of age and of legal age to form a binding contract. Users under 18 and at least 13 years of age are permitted to use the site only through an account owned by their parent or legal guardian with their appropriate permission. Users under the age of 13 are not permitted to use the site.


Let's review everything you need to know about the different account types, how to create a buyer account, and how to activate your seller account.

Types of accounts

Before we dive into the exact steps to take to create/activate your account, remember that all accounts created on Fiverr are buyer accounts, by default.

Buyer vs. seller account

Buyers have the ability to purchase orders (Gigs) from sellers on the Fiverr platform.
Sellers have the ability to offer their services through Gigs to buyers on the Fiverr platform.

The difference between a buyer account and a seller account only takes place if a buyer decides to begin offering services on Fiverr as a seller.

Note: Before you can create and sell Gigs on Fiverr, you’ll be required to create a “seller” account.
  • Activating your seller account is only available through your desktop
  • Creating your Gig is only available through your desktop
  • All sellers are reviewed during the sign-up and Gig creation process, and are also subject to approval by Fiverr

Fiverr Pro account for clients

Fiverr allows you to create a buyer account, a seller account, or a buyer and seller account.
However, you can also have a separate Fiverr Pro account.

This type of account allows you to get all your freelance work organized in one central place with enhanced capabilities, at no additional cost.

Note: Fiverr Pro accounts are for buying only, and cannot be converted to a seller account. You may only have one seller account on Fiverr.
