Is 45$ too little for writing an email to the client everyday for the rest of their lives?

I just put up this gig up and I was having a little doubt.

What the…

The very premise of the gig violates Fiverr ToS as it entails messaging outside the platform, not to even mention the mere concept and logistics make it impossible for an order to ever be completed…

Why would you even want to indenture yourself to a lifetime contract for $45? Sorry, but this whole thing is preposterous.

Even if we ignore the TOS violation, why would this be attractive gig to anyone? I can’t really see a reason why someone would purchase this gig, even assuming someone was starved of social interaction. There are plenty of websites, chatrooms, and online groups centered around niches, hobbies, and what have you that one can easily make friends and have conversations with…more than once a day…and for free.

A little doubt? How about this is wrong in just about every sense I can think of.

For the avoidance of doubt, that includes Fiverr’s TOS and morals.

Even if the gig was allowed (it’s not) then over a year it equals 12 cents a day.

Or over 10 years just over 1 cent a day. I could continue…

I’m not sure about the email thing - if it’s required for the gig it might be allowed (though he should check with CS first I think), but sending them over a lifetime would be over 30 days of service and so against the TOS for that reason (though that might change to 90 days soon if the 90 day delivery thing is kept).

Also the gig says:

Valid until I am alive.

I’m not sure that makes sense.

For the rest of their lives? That means that if the buyer never stop to send work… you will never be paid… you earn just when the client accept the final delivery… this is stupid…
