How to Change Your Fiverr Gig Category

I don’t know when this was implemented or why, but Fiverr won’t let you change the category of a published gig anymore.

You’ll get this error:

You can’t change your Gig category once your gig was published.

That’s frustrating if you chose the wrong category or a new, more suitable one appeared and you want to switch.

Luckily, there’s a simple solution for this, and I’ll show it to you.

Change the Category of Your Fiverr Gig

Step 1

Click on your user image and go to My Profile.

Go to Gigs.
