You may not know already, it hasn’t yet been advertised, but Tarot-Explained now offer Tarot readings, through fiverr. It’s taken a long time for us to get to this stage, and there has been a lot to consider. We started offering free readings through the website, and the response was staggering. Firstly, I’d like to thank everyone who submitted a request through. It helped me grow as a reader and I hope I helped you too. Changing from free to paid was a step, but necessary. The funds raised go towards the website maintenance and hosting, and in future will be used to better expand Tarot-Explained into an even better resource.
The journey from reference website to paid readings was long, almost three years, and some lessons were learned! This article might help you out if you’re an experienced reader just looking to start reading for others, and wondering if you should get paid. The answer is, broadly speaking, yes. Consider the following if you are looking to charge for your tarot readings:
It’s a service
You’re providing a service for others, which they have requested. You know you are offering value to them, and you should be compensated somehow. It’s fun to do tarot as a favour for friends or family, but you can really help others out with your skills and intuition. It may not seem like a big deal to some, but performing a tarot reading is a lot of work. When I perform a reading through fiverr, I spent anywhere from an hour onward getting into the correct mental state, and typing up and presenting the reading to the querent. This is a lot of effort for five dollars!
How good are you?
You should consider your skill level with tarot. How good do you think you are, how accurate have you been in the past? Have you had any big mistakes? A good test, is to see if you would pay for a reading from yourself. Would you? Are you value for money? Are you enhancing others lives through tarot? If so, then you should consider charging for your readings.
How much to charge?
This all depends on your style, analysis and spread that you use. On fiverr, we only offer a single card question, or three questions if the user upgrades. Bear in mind that these can take over an hour each. Are you comfortable earning under minimum wage for a reading? I am, because the money goes to help the website. If you’re looking to live off your readings, you should work out expenses and charge much more. I perform these readings simply to cover cost.
How to present a reading?
Currently, we offer a reading in a written document. A stylised page, typed up after the reading has taken place. You can take this one step further by performing face to face, over Skype, during a phone call, or a recorded video. All of these will affect your pricing. Consider charging for your next tarot reading, even if it is as little as one dollar, or for a favour. They are asking, and you are giving. It makes sense to balance the equation out.
