Category. Select the correct type for your gig. Fiverr will help you out with some suggestions.
Search tags. Add up to 5 keywords that describe your gig. These will help your customers find you.

Name your package. You will need to write a brief description of your service.
Delivery time. Please select how long it will take for you to complete.
Revisions. This section is optional, but it is necessary for services that offer customization.
Price. Select a price starting from $5 up to the maximum that Fiverr will allow you to charge for your particular gig. Remember to consider that you need to be competitive and that Fiverr will take 20% of what you charge the customer. Specific categories will allow you to offer three different packages for varying prices depending on the level of service given.
Adding extra services.
Some categories will allow you to offer extra services, such as an additional fast delivery service. You can charge more for getting the job done fast.
Shipping and handling. Shipping fees are only relevant to gigs that offer a physical product that requires posting.

Fiverr will deposit your earnings in the bank once you have completed each gig.
Once you are up and running with your gigs, the Fiverr community has plenty of support. They offer how-to guides on all categories to help you grow your business. There is a community forum to chat and get advice from other sellers. They have regular blogs full of helpful information and Fiverr stage events to help you with your business. It is a community in every sense of the word.
Something that you may find helpful when setting up is their logo creator. You will have access to their designers, who will design you a logo based on all the information you give them. A symbol will help to create a brand identity for your business. Once you have completed your logo, they will offer you a selection of packages to help you advertise your business.
