Does Fiverr allow us to sell on other platforms

No, they won’t do that.

Unless you try to get your Fiverr clients to buy from you on other platforms.

What if I provide a specific type of service on Fiverr, and a different kind of service in another platform, and a Fiverr customer comes to me asking about the service in the other platform, would it be illegal to redirect them?

Yes, it would. It’s strictly forbidden to communicate with your Fiverr clients outside of Fiverr, let alone direct them to buy from you somewhere else.

Fiverr has the option of custom offers, so you can provide that other service through Fiverr.

I suggest you read Fiverr’s Terms of Service thoroughly.

The custom offers to need to be related to the gig, though. I meant like something unrelated.

You can create a gig for custom projects, something like “I will work on a project we’ve discussed”, and put a really high price so nobody orders it by accident.

By the way, keep in mind that in conversations you have on Fiverr you’re not allowed to mention other platforms, so I’m not sure how this could happen in the first place:

No you’re fine. I have services on Upwork too. All the other freelancing platforms are garbage btw. Upwork is good and People Per Hour is usable but not very lucrative. Stay away from the others though, just full of scammers and garbage clients that pay you pennies.

Fiverr is currently the only freelance platform I use.

However, Fiverr only provides me with about 30% of my monthly income (I am a full-time freelance web content/blog writer).

I get other business from my website.

I also work as a staff writer (under contract) at two US web content providers (both found me online).

What I am getting at is that (with some exceptions) it is very difficult to build a full-time freelance career by using just one source.

Plus, when you have multiple streams of income, if one slows down, it won’t hurt so much.

I should point out that I have been freelancing since 2014, full-time since 2016.

I hope this helps.

But not impossible. I make X3 as much on fiverr alone as I did in my full-time marketing job.

Totally possible, yes.

Not always possible depending on the type of service and the demand for that service.

As an aside, I can vouch for the freelancing life as I am like you…I make roughly 3x what I did in other Media positions since I became a full-time freelancer.

I just do not believe in putting all my eggs in one basket…hence the suggestion of multiple streams of income.

Good for you!

You found the happy medium.

Yes you’re right. Fiverr can go kaput at any point so you should always work on diversifying your income too. You should never rely on fiverr alone when you don’t have a back-up. I’ve had weeks where my gig has glitched out of search and if I hadn’t have had my safety net money saved up I’d have been screwed.

I’m working on a few projects for back-up cash currently. I’m just so busy with fiverr it’s hard to find the time so it’s like a catch 22.

Make another gig for the other thing. If you are trying to find a way to get customers out of fiverr- don’t 🙂

As a Fiverr shareholder and fanboy, I beg to differ. Fiverr is not only the largest freelance platform, I is running circles around all of its competitors in the field. You are more likely to see other platforms being acquired by Fiverr in the future 🙂

That being said, yeah, diversification of income sources is always something you should keep in mind as a freelancer.

By kaput I mean your profile can, not the site itself. Fiverrs going to be around for a long, long time. But you only have to look in the forums to see the hundreds of high-performing sellers that have had their gigs thrusted to the last pages forever. It could happen to you at any moment without reason and practically all your income would disappear instantly.

I see your point now, yet I highly doubt that, if you stay within the terms of service and do a decent job you will stay. There are also the success managers that try to keep us afloat at all times, and that constantly help us optimize.

You just never know what’s going to happen when you put all your faith in a platform that you have no control over.

For example. I got a warning the other day that demoted me. I didn’t do anything wrong. I contacted support and they removed the warning as they said it was a complete mistake, they didn’t mean to give it.

The problem is this warning / accidental demotion has tanked the sales on my best-selling gig.

I’ve also seen sellers bringing in 10k+ a month with perfect stats experience getting pushed to the back page randomly and never coming back.

No, Fiverr does not allow to sell on other platforms. But you can sell anything staying inside fiverr. I would suggest you to read Fiverr guidelines again.

And I suggest that you read his question again. 🙂

Fiverr has no exclusivity clause, you are absolutely allowed to sell where ever you want as long as you do not try to get existing fiverr customers to leave and do busines outside of fiverr.
