Hi everyone, where can I find a list of gig titles that are not allowed on Fiverr? I just got a notification and it seems that having bestselling as a gig title isn’t okay.

it seems that having bestselling as a gig title isn’t okay.

I think having that title could be misleading because Fiverr promotes certain gigs as Bestselling.

There are also people who put a copy of the Level 2 badge on their profile image or gig when they are not Level 2 and Fiverr takes those gigs down until the seller removes the false badge.

I suppose if you put any of the badge or Fiverr promotion titles on your gig it could be seen as false advertising. This would include: Fiverr’s Choice or Rising Talent

Thank you. My previous Gig title was l will write a bestselling self-help book. I’ve modified the Gig though I don’t see the connection. Bestselling here does not describe the service in relation to the competition here on Fiverr but describes the sales of the book in greater quantities after being published.

The reason you can’t say that is because you can’t project if that will happen and I sincerely doubt you could. It’s false advertising. Why would Fiverr allow you to make promises you can’t possibly know if you can keep (and with no reason to think that you can)?

Deception is not okay.

This is interesting. Let’s take a critical look at it. So I say I offer best-selling content. We all know content alone doesn’t make a book a bestseller (it involves marketing, PR, etc)

If I promised that I would make the book a bestseller, now that’s totally different. I made no such claim. Well, though this is debatable, I can understand why this can be a problem and I’ve modified the Gig title accordingly.

You literally said you will write a bestselling book for a client. What else could that possibly mean?

In any case, it is misleading. That’s not okay. There is no reason to use that word and won’t help you sell anyway. It obliterates your credibility.

I’m just baffled why you don’t see how misleading this is. You don’t get a free pass to do that just because most people will know better than to.think you can bring that result.

Bestselling means bestselling. There is no other meaning or inference to that.

I don’t think you get my point. I don’t think the debate is whether or not I’m capable of writing a bestselling book and just to be clear, yeah I can and I certainly have worked with a number of bestselling authors.

The debate here is the service I claim to render. I am not saying they would become a bestselling author, I’m saying the would get bestselling content. This is totally different. As far as credibility is concerned, I think I’ve got the cred to make such claims.

In all, I’m glad Fiverr gave me a warning. I like to play by the rules.

“BestSelling” is one kind of “Niche” for Fiverr personally, You’ve to avoid it.

Yes you are saying that. That is the exact meaning of the title of your gig. It is misleading. There is no reason to use that word except to make people think they will become a bestseller if they work with you. None.

In any case, you did break Fiverr’s Terms and so you have no recourse. If you don’t like the terms, you don’t use the service. You don’t get to redefine what is allowed here.
