    They can't read each and every pm. But their system knows when you are using words like email, contact, money etc. Maybe they review only those messages which contain these words. Or maybe they don't even bother to review until they get any complaint.

    By the way, I will suggest don't leave fiverr. Try to bring customers outside fiverr but along with this, also get new customers on Fiverr.

    If you bring your customers out of fivver. there is a chance of getting scammed. and yes there system is smart enough to detect "SYKPE" instead of "SKYPE"

    I'm guessing they will have a trigger word list that will flag a PM up for a review.

    Hello,

    they detect some words in your PMs, as it was said.

    If you want play it safely, when you finish a gig, you can send a nice PDF file with your delivery where you explain you can make better things for a great price and you give your skype.

    Let's say that fiverr may read your pdf, but you would be very unlucky (a lot of sellers do this).

    You can attach a txt file to bring your customer to skype, and type s-k-y-p-e, it will not be detected by the system. Also, they don't read every pm, but if you get reported by someone then say goodbye to your account.

    I am using fiverr from 9 months, half of my clients i had shifted towards skype, don't share direct contact details, create a document and send them. Many of my clients have reported fiverr that i was asking for skype or personal details. Fiverr warned me twice. So be aware, first know your client mood.

    Just FYI OP, fiverr holds your money for 2 weeks before you can withdraw it. Not a good solution if you need money fast.

    There is some cool websites you can find online that offer you to create a message that will be deleted after its been read. That is the best option, simply because if Fiverr gets to your messages, even if you hided your skype info in the document, they can still download that same document and read what you have wrote.

    However, if you use websites with self-destructive messages, you leave no trail.

    Hope I helped.

    You will be an idiot if you do that.

    Use fiverr to build your business and same time you can give an option to your buyers to contact you out of fiverr system by sending your contact info (skype, email etc etc) in report file. :)

    Using their system to scam themselves is really really stupid. There are smart ways to guide your clients to your own website, making the username = EMD minus .com for example.

    They'll check it if it's flagged by their system. Although I've never had an issue and I was refer my clients to a website or give them my Skype. Being doing it for two years.

    I couldn't care less if they read my PMs. If I wanna share my contact with someone on Fiverr I do it anyway, and I don't care if they ban me.

    There are many filters in fiverr to detect if it's spam.

    You cant do that, they are very Strict about this. You must be banned. You also cant withdraw your money.

    Agreed...

    They for sure have systems in place to prevent business from moving outside of the market... I wouldn't be surprised if they were "reading" PM's
