Did I do a wrong thing?

I’m also a seller on fiverr. I have sent a message to a another seller to say that I like to work with his project. I sent that message because he had submitted a buyer request and in that buyer request he had mentioned that “contact me who can able to do this job”.

So, I have contacted him by a message and “I told him I like to work on your project”.

I want to know that Am I violated Fiverr TOS by messaging to a another seller.
( I have this trouble, and it disturb by mind , because I’m also a seller).
Please help me.

You are violating Fiverr’s TOS! You are not allowed to contact buyers directly, they must contact you first!

He’s not a buyer. He is also a seller.

It doesn’t matter.

User can rightfully report you for spam and you could get warning.

Unsolicited messages are violating ToS.

You should have responded to the BR.

Spam is spam. You don’t get to do just because the person is a seller not a buyer.

The seller message system is for order inquiries only. It’s not an opportunity for you to try to get work, shill your services or try to get advice. Show some respect to other sellers. This was extremely unprofessional and inappropriate.

So he IS a buyer. Either way, it’s unsolicited messaging, which is a violation of ToS.

If he posted BR you suppose to send offer to his BR, not send him messages.
