Make sure the both of you are on the same page and the requirements are ready for the job, if needed.
Create a custom offer and after he accepts you proceed with the order. Everything should go fine.

Yes, there are many scammers who will try to get you to send your work through messages and then you never get paid.

A buyer orders, pays, and then you deliver.

That is how Fiverr works.

If you do work by bypassing this you will have worked for free!
