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.

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.
