Have you previously received any warnings? I’m asking just in case Fiverr does assume the worst.

Because you initially put “violence” instead of “violation” I wouldn’t look at your post!

Your post does refer to another platform.

You will have to wait for the reply from Customer Support.

Clearly the issue here is that he said hire me on UP WORK. Promoting your presence on other platforms to avoid Fiverr is pretty sure grounds for a warning, if not a ban…You should never write something like this in a message.

You cannot said another marketplace name in fiverr. It is a violation.

What would “you can hire me on up next work” mean? Were you trying to say for their next project they should hire you? Were you trying to send them to your profile on another site? What you intended to say still doesn’t make sense to me, just trying to piece it together.

The OP is talking about warning while communicating with a buyer on Fiverr’s main site.

Doubt it. First step is a warning. Looks like you maybe completed work for the buyer and were letting them know your available for more. The way it reads, it can be seen as soliciting work or spam. I do not believe that was your intention. Hopefully Fiverr will see it that way too.

No it wasn’t. You said they can hire you on [that other site] .

“You can also hire me on up work.” Hire me on up work? I’ve tried to find a way to make that ok, as if it’s some kind of mistake and can’t.

Anyway just don’t do it again.

Of course there is. It reads as he was offering to also hire him on Upwork. And that’s one of the worst violations include fiverr. For that his account can be banned right away even without a warning.

I accidentally used the other site name once because there was an issue with the buyer’s file (which was fine on my end), and I wrote “there could’ve just been an issue when it was uploaded to Up____, I’ll resend now” (Yeah I’m too paranoid to even write the name LOL)
I immediately noticed my mistake (post hitting send, of course) and realised there was no way to edit my message so I freaked out and contacted CS explaining and asking them to remove my message. They were very understanding and I didn’t have any issues.

That said, the context looks very different. You literally told them they could hire you on another site, and it really doesn’t look like it could’ve been “autocorrect”. “You can hire me on up next work” doesn’t make any sense at all, so they may not be so kind.

If it’s your first violation they’ll likely let it slide though. Seriously, do not even try to take clients to places outside of Fiverr when this is the platform they found you on. It’s not worth it and your account will be banned

It doesn’t look like a typo or an autocorrect issue.

In my personal opinion it looks like you straight up suggested they could reach out on a competing platform.

Which is why your message was picked up by Fiverr’s AI filter and why when staff will manually review this, it may lead to a ban.

They have a 1 strike policy on this.

@frank_d No, the auto correct did it. It offered for him to hire him on upwork. He really meant up next work.
