Do not solicit work via the inbox.

That could be considered spam and you risk earning a Fiverr violation.

Send a offer as the BR system is designed for.

Do not try to get around the system.

Contacting any seller for anything other than to place an order is spam. You will get a warning on your account and it does not take many warnings to lose your account!

There have been forum members who are also sellers who’ve dived into the jungle of Buyer Requests as a poster.

The experiences…generally didn’t turn out well. In fact, a number of them had their account stats harmed for not being able to respond to all the spam messages slamming them from desperate, inconsiderate, rule-breaking sellers who disregarded explicit instructions to not directly message them.

Don’t do it.

If you spam a buyer/seller who’s in a good mood, you might get away scot-free, so count your blessings.

If you spam a buyer/seller who’s had enough BS or is a real stickler for the rules, expect being reported and the possible consequences from that.

Like @looseink @vickiespencer and @enunciator already said: don’t do it.

Also, take the time to read the Terms of Service. You will find this and other answers to questions you may have.
