Mention everything clearly, what service you will offer for each package, make things clear and don’t confuse the clients.
These are the additional features you can add to your Gig to provide some extra service for extra money.
The options for Gig extras are relevant to your Gig. If you want to provide some additional service than you can use this feature.
If you want to provide the facility of Extra fast delivery to your customer than delivery time for Fast delivery must be shorter than the BASIC package delivery time.

Fiverr allow to have a Gig description of minimum as 180 Characters, and at maximum, you can write up to 1200 characters.
The key point to remember is that never copy and paste content from the other top rated Fiverr Sellers. Most of the people just search for top freelancers and copy and paste their Gig description, which severely affects the SEO of their Gigs.
Be specific about what skills you have, what services you will provide and why people have to choose you instead of choosing other freelancers.
While writing the description of your Gig, make use of paragraph, highlight some of the text, make some text as bold and try to use bullets. This way buyers eyes can easily pick what you are offering.
In the FAQ (Frequently Asked Question) section, write some of the questions with answers about what the clients might have in mind while viewing or making an order for the Gig.
Try to make some of FAQ with valid, reasonable answers. FAQ makes customers to get some of the answers they have in their mind, instead of asking directly from you.
