    I know that it's against TOS to contact outside of Fiverr.

    However, what I don't understand is that there are many gigs which outright initiate contact outside of Fiverr.

    Gigs like "I will Teach You How To Paint for 15 min on Skype"

    or "I will teach you Mongolian on Skype for 15 min"

    My question is, is contact allowed "this way"?

    Or do they really just look out for the SEO stuff?

    Is this a loophole, or am i just missing something?

    Thanks,
    nt1

    Or is the loophole that the BUYER supplies their (skype) information?

    *confused*

    The buyer needs to submit his Skype info after the payment is made. You cannot contact the seller before you buy. This way Fiverr never loses its share of profit from a deal, involving a buyer and a seller.

    They don't want you to give your skype to your buyers, cause they want the payments to happen within their system, so that they can get that 1$/gig. But it should be OK to teach something via skype, cause the buyer will buy the gig only once, there's no reason to buy that gig twice. But gigs offering accounts and SEO stuff, have some regular buyers. And if the payment doesn't happen via their system, all the profit will go to the seller.

    So, Fiverr wants that dollar.

    But - as in say if someone wants to learn Dutch on Skype. They will learn NOTHING in 15 min and one session. So it's almost a given that they would continue to do business outside of skype, then again, I guess the buyer is saving money by spending $5.

    Oh that Fiverr

    Yes you can attach files

    Maybe I'm just thinking too hard and should take advantage.
