How is your location determined?


#1

I truly believe, a client does care where I am from. There are sellers from certain locations people trust more than others. I am not sure why, my Location has changed to Hong Kong (Last time I was in HK was almost a year ago). How does Fiverr determines location? How often do they review it? Is there anything I can do for a change?
Have a look at my profile, what do you see there as location?

Fiverr’s official communication is it cannot be changed, but hey, it changed from Canada to HK…

It’s showing up as fogi.
I know it changes when people use VPN. I’m not sure if that would be the case for you.
Of course, they detect the location via IP.

Shows up as from Hong Kong for me as well.

If it’s a persisting problem, perhaps adding a line in your profile about where you’re originally from might help.

Which of course is super unfortunate. Honestly, service should matter more. But there’s not much we can do about that…
