Dear Monika:

I m working as a seller in fiverr…so can I use the same account as a buyer also?..can I post requests as a buyer?

You not only can do that, it makes more sense, because you don’t have to pay transaction fees if you use your Fiverr Earnings to make purchases, which saves you 20% for each $5 gig you buy!

You should definitely read the Fiverr Terms of Service.

Purchasing
Buyers pay Fiverr to create an order from a seller’s Gig page or Custom Offer, using the Order Now button.
In addition buyers can request a Custom Order which addresses specific buyer requirements, and receive a Custom Offer from sellers through the site or through Fiverr Anywhere.
Gigs may be purchased using one of the following payment methods: Credit Card, PayPal, Bitcoin or Fiverr Credit.
Processing fees are added at the time of purchase where a buyer can review and accept the total amount requested to pay. These fees cover payment processing and administrative fees. As of July 2016, the current fees assessed to the total purchase amount are $1 on purchases up to $20 and 5% on purchases above $20. When purchasing from your seller’s balance (i.e. out of your earned revenues) or buyer’s shopping balance (resulting from any credits or refunds) you will not be charged a processing fee. Funds returned to your balance from cancelled orders will not include processing fees paid.
If you have funds in your account balance, either from your Shopping or available Revenue balance, it will be automatically applied to your next purchase, but only in the event that your balance covers the entire purchase amount.
You may not offer sellers to pay, or make payment using any method other than through the Fiverr.com site. In case you have been asked to use an alternative payment method, please report it immediately to Customer Support here.
To protect against fraud, unauthorized transactions (such as money laundering), claims or other liabilities, we do not collect credit information; but allow our payment vendors to collect information for the purpose of collecting payments from buyers on the Site or transferring payments to sellers on the Site. We are not exposed to the payment information provided to our payment vendors, and this information is subject to the privacy policy applicable to the payment vendor. Please see our Privacy Policy for more information here.

Good luck,
Blaise

Nota Bene: You spell “brochure” as “broucher” in your profile text.

Be sure to make use of Tools like the Fiverr Blog, Fiverr Academy, and Fiverrcast.

As a general rule, when I have time to participate in the Fiverr Forum and I notice a request like yours in the “Improve My Gig” section, I am willing and able to look at a Seller’s Profile and one gig one time.

I can give you a better level of assistance if you first work your way through the checklist below. That way, I won’t waste your one turn by advising you to follow items on the checklist. Please study this thread to better appreciate what I’m talking about here.

Here’s a thread discussing a specific example of a Buyer Request for which I created a gig and then asked for help improving that gig via the forum.

Yes infact doing both the things from 1 account is better and recommanded by CS i was told by one of the executive not to make another account for buying because they both can get deleted, Usually 2 accounts are being made in order to generate fake reviews so i guess 1 account for buying n selling is good.

Yes, you can place the order directly, and you can discuss things first through the inbox, too. Why wouldn’t you be able to do that?

Hello, I'm a Graphics Designer. Am I allowed to buy similar contents I sell from another seller on Fiverr?

There's no rule against it. And yes, some people buy from one seller to sell to a customer, too, though if you do that, you need to make sure it's okay with the seller you bought from. Why would you, though, if you can do it yourself? Serious question.

We only get three images per gig to show our skills. You should really, really be using your own skill to show off what you can do.

If you're asking someone to draw for you, and you can't draw, but you design business cards, I can understand that. But you have a logo design gig. If you're trying to make a good logo for your business, you should really design your own. Plus future buyers are going to assume that whatever logo you are using to represent yourself was designed by you. 

But if you're hiring someone to draw your face, I can understand that.

You are right. You know, logo design has many categories and I'm good with designining pictorial and emblem logos. However, I should learn the other types and design my own logo.

Keep in mind that you're not allowed to present someone else's design as your own, as that would be misleading.

Yes you should, of course, and you can make other gigs that way, too. More gigs that you are really good at means more opportunities for earning 😄 But in the meantime, you should use the skill you already know to make a logo for yourself now in your current style. That way customers know what to expect 😄 Plus it's great practice. I hope you will do well at communicating your requirements to yourself 😉
