Rewards for referrals on your gigs

Just a few quick questions.
Is it against the Terms of Service to offer discounts to buyers that referred your gig to someone else? I don’t see an issue, and reading through the TOS, I see nothing that says not to do that.
Has anyone ever tried to use their own referral marketing in their gigs?
If so, what was that experience like?

If it’s against the TOS, please tell me. I don’t want to break the rules.

It’s not against the TOS (to the best of my knowledge), but it is questionable as far as an online-only business practice goes.

Consider: Fiverr already has a Referral Program in place.

If you try to do it on your own, you’ll need to be able to either verify every claim on your own, or just accept a claim of referral blindly. Both can cost you, either in time, or in potential lost sales.

Thanks for the response. It’s all worth considering I suppose.
