Is this gig against ToS?

Question

Hey gang,

I found a gig where a TRS is offering to be your 'fiverr consultant'. Gig description below.

I've thought perhaps this would be a good gig to offer, but a) I think it's against ToS and b) I'm don't think I'm at the level to offer advice as I'm not TRS myself.

I don't believe the seller is offering to create/update the profile, but instead consult, give feedback, advice, ideas etc.

I'm guessing it must be against ToS, otherwise sellers like @frank_d @newsmike@catwriter @imagination7413  and others would be offering it and likely making lots of sales. 

Just surprised that if it isn't allowed that a TRS doesn't know better.

Thoughts, allowed or not allowed...?

I have a direct line of communication with key team leaders and c-suit executives on Fiverr and even I can't offer what this seller claims they do.

I had this discussion with someone from Fiverr, where I shared my initial thoughts about offering Fiverr sellers actual mentoring or business training and they encouraged me to do it, however, I don't think these Fiverr specific claims would fly.

It's completely different to claim that I will help you with your business obstacles/goals and to talk about leveling you up to a TRS.

To sum up my answer:

1) yes this gig is violating the platform's ToS

2) Based on the gig description alone, I wouldn't trust this seller to hold my doritos while I'm gaming, much less trust them with my success on the platform.

I completely agree with Frank, but wanted to add another thought: If this Seller is/was also in Seller+, then they're also breaking the specific contract to that program, about the consultations being confidential. It's also in direct competition to the Seller+ program itself. Though that makes me curious about the prices of those packages.

If you want a specific ToS violation, it's edging on that 'promising an outcome beyond the Seller's control'. The gig wording is cleverly vague. How does Buyer/User define 'improve'? That alone sets up a conflict of expectations.
