I received an email from Fiverr to advise they had removed my gig because it did not pass editor’s review:
“This Gig has been flagged for promoting a service, website or product outside of Fiverr. The Fiverr marketplace is aimed at connecting buyers and sellers using our platform. You are welcome to create a new Gig that can be offered and delivered on Fiverr, but not use the Fiverr platform for advertising external services.”
I have had this gig on Fiverr for over a year, had over 120 orders without a problem, now the gig is gone, never to be seen again.
For $5 I would register a domain name for the buyer. There was no link, image or reference to any product, service or website in my gig so I don’t see how my gig is promoting a service outside of Fiverr?
A quick search on Fiverr:
Multiple gigs selling domain registrationas and some blatantly promoting a service/website outside Fiverr - Godaddy, hostgator and Google: https://www.fiverr.com/search/gigs?utf8=✓&search_in=everywhere&source=top-bar&locale=en&query=domain+register&page=1&layout=auto
Over 2000 results for “Facebook”: https://www.fiverr.com/search/gigs?utf8=✓&search_in=everywhere&source=top-bar&locale=en&query=facebook&page=1&layout=auto
How are none of the above gigs NOT promoting a service or website outside Fiverr!!!
I will contact Fiverr support, but doubtful that Fiverr will reinstate my gig. Has anyone else had this issue and had it resolved?
