    Does Fiverr have a rule against sending affiliate links in a message to a buyer? I would like to post graphics gigs and send the buyer a link to a site where they could get the artwork output. The link would be an affiliate link. If I sent them the graphics file, would I get in trouble for sending a link, telling them where they could get it printed out for a good price? Thanks.

    This is strictly PROHIBITED on FIVERR! Basically Fiverr wants people to only know eachother via FIVERR. Dealing outside of FIVERR using FIVERR as a landing source will get you banned.

    Thank for responding to my question. So, let me make sure I've got this totally straight...even if I weren't dealing with buyers outside of Fiverr, and even if I fulfilled my gig on Fiverr (created their graphic and sent them the file) I would not be allowed to send the buyer an email with any kind of link for getting the graphic printed. I was afraid that would be the answer! On a related question, I guess I couldn't offer a gig where I set up a CafePress store for people because I would have to send them a link for that, right?

    You're right but i saw some of them avoiding it by providing that through file attached.

    I just read a post on here that said Fiverr reads your messages to buyers, so they might catch it. :-(

    With the whole link situation, I'm sure you can do it at your own risk. Right now there is no rule preventing it but I did get a Fiverr sellers email once, we had way to many messages and the gig includes "outside links", so instead of a file being in the link he/she just added his email in there and we kept in contact. I don't see how Fiverr could catch this without banning links altogether, but I don't know. Good luck
