Welcome to the Fiverr forums.

You only have 5 minutes of read-time shown in your forum profile. Check out the Tips For Sellers category (Fiverr Tips - Fiverr Community Forum). You’ll find hundreds of threads offering advice on a variety of things to consider and/or improve. (Note: Not all advice can apply to all gigs or categories. Be sure you check multiple sources as there are some false tips, even among the top threads.)

It takes a lot of work to make it as a freelancer, so be sure to research and plan accordingly.

I’m pretty sure that is not alright as a gig package. Packages are part of the contract of your gig. It is clever, I’ll give you that. It’s just very unprofessional.

Thanks for your advice. Can it be a violation of TOS?

It’s not violating the TOS, but it’s unprofessional as @imagination7413 said.

Instead of making a whole package for it, you should leave a note in your gig description that asks buyers to contact you before ordering.

Even with this package, a buyer could still order it and not have to contact you first!

Maybe extend your delivery time instead? Instead of 2 days, for example, put down four, and write in your gig description that this is intentional specifically for this reason.

Each Gig package should include different service elements. This includes description, delivery time, revisions, etc.
