It’s unfortunate but apparently we can’t trust the “From:” [country] in sellers profiles. I created my account in the USA before we left for vacation in the Philippines. I did a few gigs in the Philippines and Fiverr changed my location to From: Philippines. I’m not from the Philippines I’m a white guy with native American blood, born and raised in the USA lol. Despite performing various gig’s since we’re back permanently in the US, my profile still says From: Philippines. Fiverr support has been of no help with this, stating that it’s supposed to change automatically, but I’m here to tell you that it doesn’t, and that of particular concern to me not only as a seller, but as a buyer. Why?
Because we already have enough problems with people using fake profile photos and posing as someone their not. I know that for many of my buyers, having someone in nearby proximity to them, who is a true native english speaker, is important to them. I’ve had buyers in the Philippines message me that they wanted to buy from me because they “love Filipino people,” but I’ve had to tell them that sorry but I’m not Filipino
Please fix this. Thanks!
