    Well, what did you do to upset those extremely alert mods?

    Some of the reasons they'll delete your account are:

    * You promote a product to buyers.
    * You ask for email or other personal information from buyers.
    * You use the same paypal email address for multiple fiverr accounts.
    * You tried to do a transaction outside of fiverr.

    I once got a warning for the last one, but for a different service that I wasn't offering on Fiverr. I've been extra careful since.

    I just got on fiverr doing small SEO jobs for people trying to get more leads for my bigger SEO projects and it has honestly been a pain so far. They are trying really hard to keep their users locked into fiverr and it is kind of a shame IMO. And to be honest I don't really care about five bucks but it still kind of irks me that they take out a dollar. It's 20% for them which is really a lot extra to pay for what is basically a novelty freelance site.

    I got locked out of my account for a few days in November, but they finally let me back in. A client had asked about work outside of Fiverr and I sent them to my web site. I tried to sign in again later that day and found that I had been banned. I whined and groveled through their support system and they unlocked my account after a few days. The mods are definitely keeping an eye on the messages that are sent through their system.

    lol fiverr are running a business and like any othet business they don't ;ike their clients being poached,

    They had as great idea, worked hard to promote it, Why do some people begrudge them a dollar.
    A lot of people are making a lot of money from fiverr and the 50 or sixty clones are struggling.

    If you want to promote other higher paying jobs within fiverr, Just be a little smart, and you will get away with it

    The way to get your Fiverr clients out of it is to write a word doc in your delivery to them and entitle it please read. if they ask just refer them to that and you should stay under the radar. I am going to create a fiverr safety guide soon for sellers as this ia becoming a major isue with gigs being denied etc
