Forbidden terms

What are some words or terms flagged in Fiverr. For instance is course, assignment bad


Honestly, the best thing to do is read the TOS, because it will tell you specifically what not to discuss with your buyers. For example, never asking for certain reviews, or not sharing personal information or information outside of the platform–which protects us from potential scammers and problems.

Just from personal experience, I can’t see why “course” or “assignment” would raise any flags. What will raise flags I know for certain are things that specifically go against TOS.


Thanks for your response grey,

You’re very welcome! Best of luck! :slight_smile:

As a matter of sociological duty, I’ve compiled a list of specific terms that Fiverr doesn’t care for. The following is a sample of these terms and should not be used under any circumstance - in any part of your presentation - or in correspondence:

  1. Fiver … Fiverr is absolutely appalled by the idea that anyone would ever use the word “fiver” in reference to it’s lack of “r’s.” Words with one “R” lack character. It’s for this reason that Fiverr is currently working on new computerrs that will neverr allow
    forr you to even considerr returning to the single “R” forrmat.

  2. Wiggle … as in “this gig is so good that it will make you wiggle.”
    Fiverr knows that wiggling leads to frolicking, which leads to listening to rock N roll, which leads to mistake babies.

  3. Fiverr is totally against you using the term “mistake babies.”

  4. Existential Aesthetics … frankly, Fiverr is tired of your grounded approach and your me’ism. Fiverr wants you to try on some Lynchian silliness. Fiverr believes in drawing cats with dog features and sees no reason as to why they can’t have human emotions. Fiverr says, “get over yourself, cause stuff gets weird.”

  5. Pop/ Rock … Fiverr absolutely will not allow you to offer any form of pop/rock on its platform. Fiverr knows that pop is really swing or show tunes and that rock is really blues with too many chords.

Pop can sometimes also mean “soda,” but you need approval from customer service.

Now here is a fun “forbidden term…”

  1. Pasties … Let me just stop you right there. Listen, we all want to offer pasties on Fiverr. We’ve all tried to offer pasties on Fiverr. We’ve had all the great ideas already. Batman pasties? We thought of that. “Elmers Paste Pasties?” It’s been done. One brilliant Fiverrian made tomato paste pasties and they were not only adhesive, but delicious.

But it ain’t gonna happen. Fiverr will not allow you to make pasties and sell them here. You’re just gonna have to accept it. Don’t even bring it up.

One guy from Fresno attempted to sell “smaller than average pancakes” thinking he could beat the system … shut down.

It’s just not worth it. As much as we all want to say it, sell it and promote it, the pasties talk will not be tolerated on Fiverr. So we just dream. Dream … through the lenses of our unspoken visions where we dare not let reality enter.

This pretty much covers it for now. If you follow these steps, you shouldn’t have any red flag scenarios but you never know.


Unethical Services

Fiverr’s marketplace is open for sellers to offer any creative and productive service they wish to propose. With that being said, we ask to refrain from offering any unethical service. For example, taking part in doing someone else’s academic work (which will likely be submitted as the student’s own work) or requesting academic work to be done for you, is unethical since it violates most schools’ Honor Codes and constitutes copyright infringement. Fiverr does not allow this type of fraudulent activities and it will not be permitted on our platform.

The above is from the Community Standards.

Helping with academic work is against the Terms of Service at the bottom of the Fiverr main page and to do so is to risk your account.

To be honest, I’d avoid ‘course’ and ‘assignment’ with a ten-mile pole… these sound somewhat like academic work and I can’t see a need to use them. And as we all know, assisting people with academic work is banned. When drafting a gig, I’d want to be sure there was absolutely no room for misunderstanding–by clients, by Fiverr personnel, and by suspicious, sneaky weasel robots…


:grinning::grinning: helpful indeed. Thanks.

Thanks all for your response. I’ve learned something from you guys. God bless you
