Buyer's Request Denied


I am pondering if this should go under the “Ranting Pot” but since I am not complaining but needing advice, I’ll start here.

I posted two Buyer’s Request and both were denied. I received a generic message stating that it was misleading, etc. The message also said that my account could be restricted if I continue to violate …

I have no idea what I am violating. I am not requesting anything inappropriate, no links, no profanity, anything that maybe considered taboo/dirty.

Perhaps one of you more experienced buyers or sellers can tell me where I went wrong?

Buyer’s Request #1:

I am a buyer looking to get a Christmas theme cartoon. Requirement: Rottweiler Puppy with a Santa hat chewing a bone ==> next to a fireplace.

Buyer’s Request #2:

   I am a buyer looking for someone to write me an engaging book blurb for my Christian Short Story series. Minimum work count on the blurb to be 250 words with max count at 350 words. Once I accept your offer, I will attach the current blurb with additional information as needed or required.


I see nothing that would restrict these. My best guess is in the first one the arrow, and the second I have no clue. Contact customer support and ask.


the buyer request is only for buyers not for seller and only buyers can use this offer to provide a chance to seller to complete this tasks from seller not from buyers , so only buyers are allowed to use this services and Fiverr and not supporting to seller to use this option


@williamjohan: I am a buyer. I am NOT a seller.

I am trying to post a request which keeps getting denied. I need a blurb for my books and a Christmas cartoon for a card.


try removing the word buyer. State

Are you still looking for a writer for the blurb? If so I can help you out. That will take away at least one request you’re trying to place.

Contact me for further info.

I’ve had two normal requests denied as well, with no explanation at all. It’s sad how so many people are spamming the buyer’s request section by offering their services there, while legitimate requests get denied.


Same thing happened to me when I was looking to hire someone (as a buyer).
CS suggested I type the word ‘need’ in my request.
After 2 attempts + warnings that my account would be banned, I gave up and didn’t search for a seller nor buy the gig from anyone.
It’s funny, because as a seller, I don’t even check buyers requests anymore because I know it’s just a waste of time–almost everything there is sellers trying to promote themselves.


I just had the same thing happen to me. I just wanted images of boxes created for my digital products. I have made decent money here as a seller and spent decent money as a buyer, not cool. It makes me want to take my business elsewhere for requests.
