My buyer tells me to inbox me

I’m new. I get a lot of buyer requests. My buyer tells me to inbox me. What can I do to inbox that buyer?
Help me?

Even though the buyer might tell you to inbox him, don’t! It’s against the Fiverr TOS to directly message a buyer. You could get your account restricted!

Short answer: DON’T.

Longer answer: The buyers are likely new and don’t yet know that what they’re asking is against the ToS.

Hi! Good afternoon. I’m new to the platform, but I’ve already accessed some forums/replies and read the rules and the most recommended is that you don’t send messages before being contacted by the buyer, because before that, he/she isn’t considered a buyer and you would be violating the platform’s rules.
PS: I had to edit, because I had misunderstood the message. Success!

The person is not your buyer unless they contact you through your inbox first and then accept your custom offer. Or, if they book your gig directly. Until then they are a prospective buyer.
