Frustrated With Fiverr

Naya Moss @nayamoss

After becoming frustrated with Fiverr and Upwork. I wanted to build a website where people could see a skill or service I can provide, book my time, and pay me.

I first posted a tweet announcing some Fiverr gigs. I ran into many issues as some people wanted to book me for later dates in the year, but pay me now to help me pay my rent and expenses.

This isn't a capability with Fiverr. A person purchases your service, you have a time frame to complete, you complete the service, then you have to be reviewed, and at last, you are paid, yet it takes almost 2.5 weeks to approve and send to your bank account.
