Do you think is better to offer a service for 10$ and aiming to make 1000 sales or 100$ and aiming at 100 sales?

    It depends on what you're selling.

    If you mean mass-market consumer goods, you can get away with lower pricing and do extremely well (McDonald's, just an example).

    However, as you mentioned a service, it's almost always better to offer higher end pricing when you're doing things one-on-one.

    More on that here, a great post by another member of this forum:

    It depends on the product, niche and audience. Normally I personally prefer a higher price as you need less sales, but it needs to make sense per say..

    It really depends. If it's an ebook, for example, and you want to sell on Amazon then you need to price low. But if you sell it on your own website and maybe package it with some other stuff, then you can sell that ebook for much, much more.

        The prices you assign to any single service should be representative of its value.
        I completely agree with Daniel. Have 2 or 3 offerings and have your customers choose based on their budgets i.e. have a core offering and then offer couple of upsells

    There is no easy answer for this. Fiverr earns it reputation for $5 gigs in the beginning, though in recent years they've started allowing premium pricing too.

    If you're gonna go with $10 sales, best hope it's not a lengthy service job. $10 sales are better for services that can be done within 30 minutes or less. $10 sales are also suitable for selling info products as well.

    It also comes down to basic supply and demand. Beta test both models and see what works best for you.
