Would there be a problem?

Hey guys,
Would there be a problem?
if I copied my Giggs’ description from someone else’s description?

Hi. Of course that would be a problem. Why do you think it’s okay to simply copy the text that someone else spent their time on? On top of that deceiving potential customers who’d think you came up with it yourself?

You can obviously read what others write to get some inspiration, but write your own descriptions, and if it’s only to not get reported and banned from the platform, if you don’t care about the above .

Well…Let’s suppose there wouldn’t… Why exactly would you want to copy someone’s else’s description? I really want to know the reasoning behind it!

Have you ever thought how copying someone’s description is fraudulent, unethical and a misrepresentation of you or your services?

It’s strictly forbidden, and you could get banned for it.

It’s also unethical. It’s like stealing from other sellers. How would you feel if you put a lot of effort into something, and then someone just stole it from you?

Oh, and is that why your account got suspended?

I reported the last person who copied my gig description and Fiverr removed their gig. Don’t do it!

Because, nothing is coming to my head.

Thanks for your suggestion

So that makes stealing from others okay…? Even if it’s just text they’ve actually worked on it.
It’s NEVER okay to copy someone else’s work especially like this.

Hmmm, okay. But …? :thinking: :thinking: :thinking:

But what?
Make your gigs and come up with their own description. As everyone else has stated here, copying others’ gigs or work in general will get you at least reported.

I didn’t suggest anything, I have answered your question, asked how would you feel if someone stole from you, and asked if your account got suspended because you stole other sellers’ gig descriptions.

If you aren’t even able to write a description for the service you offer, it’s a reason to work on self-improvement prior to trying doing business. Your excuses like “nothing is coming to my head” don’t sound serious.

Okay.
Thank You so much :roll_eyes: :roll_eyes: :roll_eyes:

What you are suggesting here is copyright infringement. And Fiverr takes reports of that very seriously. You could get permanently banned from the site.

If you do copy and paste, Fiverr will deny your gig.

But you write your gig description same as others (without copy paste), it may be accepted. However Fiverr can find similarity, and your gig may not get ranked.

If you copy other’s gig description, paste in an notepad, than rewrite them with tools, it will ok, but not so effective.
