Super quick backstory; I’ve been with Fiverr since 2011, selling for the last couple of years in the Forex category as a Level 2 seller, about to hit the earnings requirement for Top Rated.
I’ve qualified for Promoted Gigs, Early Payout and Cash Advance and have only had a couple of cancelled orders in a few hundred sales.
It’s very much a side hustle to break up the day, make a couple of sales a day and connect with some fantastic people.
Imagine my surprise to discover that my two most popular gigs that were live for over a year (both being advertised) were today removed for ‘breaking terms of service’.
It seems your Gig is not appropriate for the Fiverr marketplace. We suggest that you do some research on the Fiverr platform to see what type of Gigs are offered and in demand by our buyers.
Odd for several reasons, my gigs have had over 20,000 impressions, 60 sales in the last 30 days - so very much in demand and my other gigs are still live.
Thinking it was an automated nuking I raised a ticket; (My emphasis in bold)
It is very unfortunate to hear that your gigs were removed. Please allow me to explain what happened
While I understand that your Gig used to perform well on our platform, with the constant changes and improvements that we bring over time to our platform, this kind of offer is no longer in focus when it comes to the services we display on our website.
This is a good opportunity to refresh your Gigs and provide a service that is more in demand. I would kindly advise you to search through our website to see what are the most trending Gigs that are converting in the recent period. That way, you can distinguish what service you would like to offer and showcase your talents by creating a New Gig!
So Forex is no longer permitted on Fiverr? That’s ok, their house, their rules.
But a quick search finds over 6,100 gigs.
When I asked support specifically;
I sent your complaint to the relevant team and they confirmed that they are in the process of removing all services that are not in line with Fiverr anymore.
You can report a Gig too by using the “Flag” feature available on the Gig page (see image). This actually helps our team to review reports more quickly and efficiently.
So not directly answer the question, just a general ‘not permitted’ answer. Ok… but then odd to ask me to flag all (now 6,140) fellow forex gigs.
So it would seem that my time here comes to an end and I bid you adieu.
My parting words would be to remember you’re using someone else’s marketplace and they can change the house rules at any time.
