Highlights include a database of over 3 million gigs to choose from on mobile device, direct and instant access to sellers with user-generated feedback and quality ratings, visually stunning user interface with simple marketplace navigation, real-time notifications and alerts for users, social component + conversation and single click purchases.

“When we designed Fiverr mobile, we wanted to take advantage of the iPhone’s unique user interaction capabilities”, says Fiverr CEO and Co-founder, Micha Kaufman. “We wanted to provide a whole new discovery experience, alongside a powerful search and category navigation, while maintaining the simplest mobile buying experience we could offer. I am very proud of what we have been able to achieve”.

The Fiverr marketplace spans over 196 countries and includes offerings from sellers in over 120 product and service categories. With one of the largest and most diverse online communities, Fiverr mobile’s slick interface and quick sell / buy features allow even the most casual user to interact.
