Fiverr Goes Global With New Languages, Local Offerings

After raising $30 million in August , Fiverr, the low-cost online marketplace for services of any stripe, is making it rain.

The company is spending money to roll out new international sites. Starting with Spanish, French, Dutch, and Portuguese website versions, the US-based company wants to take its network of professional and creative service providers global — without them having to leave the comfort of their Rent-A-Center couches.

Now, bargain buyers can get their shop on for any of over 100 different design or service jobs in their native language.

Fiverr’s billing this as the next generation of the on-demand service economy.

“International growth and market expansion has become a strategic priority for Fiverr,” said chief executive Micha Kaufman in a statement. “These are the first of many languages that we’ll be adding over the next few months, with ongoing community and social media management.”
