No it's not okay. They want you to send money and it's most likely a scam. That isn't how Fiverr works. Off-site payment to buyers/sellers isn't allowed (it's against the Fiverr TOS).

The TOS says:

Quote

Users may not offer or accept payments using any method other than placing an order through Fiverr.com.

You'll be lucky if you don't get a warning. 🤦‍♀️

If you had really read Fiverr's TOS, as you said you did when opening your account, you would know contacting outside of Fiverr is not allowed. 🙄

Here's the link, and this time make sure you read it to avoid getting in trouble: https://www.fiverr.com/terms_of_service

The person who messaged you is not a "client" but a scumbag scammer trying to hoodwink new/desperate sellers into PAYING HIM for the entirely fake opportunity of receiving an order.

As mentioned by others, you've already violated ToS by contacting the dung beetle off-platform, so the best course of action would be to cut off and block all communication with the scammer, learn at least the basics of how Fiverr operates, or end your endeavor now before you get yourself scammed or banned...
