Gigs may be removed by Fiverr for violations to these Terms of Service, which may include (but are not limited to) the following violations and/or materials:
Illegal or Fraudulent services
Copyright Infringement, Trademark Infringement, and violation of a third party’s terms of service reported through our Intellectual Property Claims Policy found here
Adult oriented services, Pornographic, Inappropriate/Obscene
Intentional copies of Gigs
Spam, Nonsense, or Violent Gigs
Gigs misleading to buyers
Reselling of regulated goods
Services that extend beyond 30 days of service duration
Gigs that are removed for violations mentioned above, may result in the suspension of the seller’s account.
Gigs that are removed for violations are not eligible to be restored or edited.
Gigs may be removed from our Search feature due to poor performance and/or user misconduct.

In addition to those, anything that the Fiverr editors feels is not good for the site is removed, usually without warning. They don’t give a definite list of those. However, the majority of what I just listed for you is right in the Terms of Service, so all you had to do was read the rules and guides already on this site.

Visit Fiverr.com and browse categories! Those are the allowed/legal services.

Dear sir
I want to know about “Illegal or Fraudulent services”


#5

Services which are against the law and services which intentionally defraud the client.

If the service you wish to provide is Fraudulent or Illegal then it’s Fraudulent or Illegal and can’t be offered on the Fiverr.com website which is legal and truthful.

@n4y33m Actually, if you browse enough time through all the gigs on Fiverr, you’ll find plenty forbidden/illegal gigs, or gigs that break the rules, so I would definitely not trust the browsing of categories :smiley:

@fonthaunt you forgot to mention gigs that provide academic-related work (homework, exams, school research papers, etc), which is a new addition, and I don’t understand why it hasn’t been added to the TOS already :thinking:

@Woofy31 I didn’t mention it because it isn’t going to be in the ToS as far as I know. Like some other very specific things (Amazon reviews, Facebook likes, Homework gigs) it is not technically a terms violation but it is not in editorial focus on Fiverr right now. So, the editors hand-pick certain things for removal that are not listed anywhere. That’s why I put the caveat at the bottom since there will always be changed to editorial focus. Sometimes those gigs are entirely denied and sometimes they are just pulled from search:

I totally agree that browsing is a useless way to tell. You also can’t be sure what services have been OK in the past but might be added to the denial list.

Well, I think Fiverr should still publish the list of [currently] disallowed gigs, as it would save a lot of time and effort from both the new seller’s side, as well as Fiverr’s editorial team side…

By keeping that list internal (even if it’s prone to never-ending updates), the editorial team has more work to do, new sellers get angry when their gigs get removed because nobody told them [disallowed-type] gigs are disallowed, and the forum gets flooded with “why did Fiverr remove/ban my gig?” posts… seems a bit counter-intuitive to me…


#10

The problem with publishing the list of disallowed things is that people find a way to circumvent it.

For example, selling and buying Facebook likes is forbidden by Facebook’s Terms of Service, and Fiverr’s ToS forbids us to do anything that would violate a third party’s ToS. Some sellers circumvent it by stating that they will promote a page (they used to say that they will promote it until it gets a certain numbers of likes, but now many of them avoid mentioning likes at all).


#11

Nah the problem is database table limits. There are billions of possible gigs that would be illegal somewhere in the world.


#12

Sometimes I feel like I’m losing faith in humanity :cry:


#13

Embedded video denied (lol) Search YouTube for “faith restored in humanity” to be uplifted.


#14

This is more to Woofy but I’m too lazy to change it. :smiley:

Plus, Fiverr needs to reserve the right to remove a gig if someone comes up with something that is “new” but turns out to be a really bad idea.

So - all of the above. I get that it makes it difficult and even scary. The best thing for seller to do if considering a new gig that seems questionable is to contact CS and explain what they want to sell. CS can typically at least give you an overall idea of whether it will be an instant-denial or not.
