Well, we sellers need to get out money out of fiverr somehow, so they could get our names from paypal or our credit card company if there was a real need,
and you can find lots of posts by sellers here on the forum who needed to provide ID, a photo with their ID in hands, when something went wrong with their accounts, it seems the philosophy at work here is a bit ‘as long as all is fine, it´s fine’, which probably favours the not so legit people a bit,
but we see a lot of accounts being banned too, or gigs being deleted, if sellers violate ToS,
since recently we need to verify withdrawals with our verified phone number…
and you know, there are a lot of people who are perfectly honest and all and yet would not want to provide a company with scans of their IDs, so they are there for all staff and potential hackers, all companies have security issues, even the biggest and well known ones where most people think their data is safe…I for one like to provide my ID to as few places as possible.
Buyers have a lot of time to complain to Customer Support for any issue, and if they do it, and it´s a founded complaint, they’ll get a refund, and it will have consequences for the seller.
I don´t say that Fiverr is ideal as it is. I don´t think Fiverr is ideal as it is. There are some issues I see with it, I think some things are easier said than done, though, too, and I think there are always compromises, if there is more than 1 person involved anywhere.
Open the place you imagine, if you can´t find it. Who knows.
