Whelp… After a solid 8 years on fiverr, everything I have worked so hard for has now ended… Yes I will admit it’s my own fault for why im now banned but I just want to give a back story incase any of you ever run into this situation so you will know what to do.
2012 - The beginning of my fiverr journey. I began offering graphic design work as i just got out of college taking graphic design. I worked hard making sure every client was happy with the work and eventually i became a top rated seller. I was so excited and i felt like i was on top of the world.
2016 - I was still continuing to do fiverr and at this point i was doing it fulltime. Around the end of the year is when I had to take a step back because i could no longer keep up with all the orders i was getting and deal with some real life situations so i decided to take 2 years away from fiverr.
2018 - I slowly began to make a come back and started offering a new service where I would get people wins in the video game Fortnite. This is where i ran into an issue. When I started this gig I noticed a bunch of other people offering the same service. What I did not know was offering wins in a video game is against TOS. i’ve still yet to find this actually in the tos but support says its there. This was my first warning.
2019 - Support told me offering Coaching instead of wins is allowed so i started back up again but this time now offering coaching on Fortnite. Everything was going good, people were loving it and with only alittle over a month I had 60+ Happy clients.
Offering coaching is a different kind of way on fiverr. Normally when you finish a order you have something to send to the client for proof. For coaching the proof for me was by playing with the client in the video game. My thought to this was I did not need to submit anything in the delivery because the client already knew it was completed so i would just simply send a thank you for your order and asking them to give a review on what they thought of it. This is where I received my 2nd warning as fiverr said i needed to provide valid proof showing I finished the work. So then I started taking pictures of them being in my game for proof.
A few days ago is when I received my final warning and was banned for good. This last warning was all on me. Basically what happened was, I had a client order coaching, i asked him when he would like to play but did not get a reply from him. The order timer was coming due and i started to panic because I didn’t want to receive a late cancellation or my on time delivery to go down. I know I could have sent an extended time request but i thought because hes not already answering me about when he wants to play, hes not going to answer the extended time request. I then sent the delivery to him and in the delivery i stated that we could continue to play once he gave me a time to meet. This is where i messed up. I then received a warning for this and my account banned… It sucks knowing everything you worked hard for is now gone because of one mistake… fiverr was also my only income so now im jobless… Ive tried to reach out to support but was basically told there was nothing that can be done.
