Change Of Location When Away From Home


#1

Hey,

Do I really need to use VPN while away from my current location? Would my location change if I did not use a VPN?

A positive response will be much appreciated.

Cheers!

Why are you using a VPN? How far from your current location do you mean? Customer service is the one to ask this about.

As far as I know, it is never a good idea to use VPN.

Don’t try to change your location on fiverr using a VPN, use your real location.


#4

I don’t understand why so many Sellers feel the need to do this.


#5

Some sellers think they can use tricks like this to improve the number of orders they get. They think that some countries are in disfavor with buyers. I understand their concern but for a long term successful fiverr business, tricks like VPN get you in touble eventually.

It’s definitely not worth the risk. Taking the easy way out is never a good thing it always comes back to bite. I’ve worked with Sellers from all over the :world_map: globe, I don’t concentrate on the location at all. Quality work & Honesty is what matters the most.

I’m based in Japan, but every summer ( and sometimes winter too I go to the states,
but I never change my location and I see why I need to do this.
I have had people say stuff like " Wow, I thought you were in Japan, it must be like way past midnight back there, thank you so much for responding to my message so quickly," so I’ll tell them I was currently visiting the states, but honestly, no need to change the location.

Yes, using VPN not a good idea. Also, I think doesn’t need to change you location while you moved to somewhere.


#9

If you move to another country and stay long, Fiverr automatically updates your location from old country to current country.
