“While many members of our community run their business solely using the Fiverr marketplace, we know that this is not the case for everyone, and that some people have freelance businesses that they run independently. Now, with Fiverr Workspace, they’ll be able to connect the two and manage all of their revenue streams through one easy-to-use platform,” said Yonat Burlin, director of business management for Workspace.
“By integrating the best-in-class features from AND.CO with the Fiverr platform, we are creating an all-in-one solution not only for freelancers working on and off of Fiverr, but also for small business owners who are looking for support in managing the back-end of their business,” Burlin said.

The integration of AND.CO into the Fiverr marketplace and the new Workspace solution aims to provide freelancers and small businesses with flexible, easy-to-use tools that also provide a familiar user experience, according to the release.
The new capabilities, which will be introduced in the coming months, will include new payment options for retainer projects, complete with automated invoice generation at specified intervals. The payment tool can be customized to reflect each user’s brand. Additional features include automated tax preparation that takes a deeper dive than previously available on the platform, as well as access to financial consultants.
Fiverr Workspace has an improved UX design that was developed to seamlessly connect team members. The mobile app was also upgraded to encourage “deeper connections with Fiverr and beyond.” Additional features are also in the works, per the release.
Launched in 2010, the Fiverr platform links businesses with freelancers that specialize in digital services in more than 500 categories and across nine verticals.
