  • You may not offer direct payments to Sellers using payment systems outside of the Fiverr platform.

  • Fiverr does not provide protection for users who interact outside of the Fiverr platform.

The above is from the Terms of Service at the bottom of the Fiverr main page which everyone needs to read before buying or selling anything on Fiverr.

Everything is explained there in great detail.

You need to remove the username of the seller from your post as naming and shaming buyers and sellers is not allowed on the forum.


do not give any payment outside FIVERR, u must pay in FIVERR.COM website

That’s the first mistake you made… sellers nor clients can leave the platform, since scammers can go unregulated. You should’ve stopped there.
Luckily Paypal has a good dispute system. You’ll have to work it from there.

First thing you have to do is: report the message in the chat where they tell you to leave Fiverr. Then, go to Paypal and try to get your money back.
