Well, this year is flying by and it will soon be time for me to fly away to my new Brexit aftermath safe zone of Cyprus. What is more, I’m not the only one. Apparently, Cyprus and Bulgaria are becoming hubs for UK expats and freelancers from other countries like Greece with apparently, less than favorable freelance tax laws.
My plan is to bed down in Cyprus for two years and reimmerse myself in things I miss here on Malta. Namely, trees, mountains, snow, and wide open spaces.
Sadly, the one hiccup which I am still to iron out with regard to my move is Fiverr. Several forum posts on and off Fiverr, cite changes in geographical location as a serious threat to sellers. Specifically due to Fiverr flagging what they consider suspicious activity arising from a users digital location.
Now, I don’t want to debate any ‘we don’t know the full story etc’ conjecture here. I would ideally like to know if any other sellers have successfully moved overseas and not run into difficulties. - And what they did/how they worded messages to Fiverr to make sure any such moves went smoothly.
At present, my gut is telling me to start reeling in my Fiverr activity a few weeks prior to moving. This way. Fiverr won’t be able to grab any non cleared earnings should they suspend my account. Even then, though, I am going to be reluctant to start selling again. - Specifically due to a concern that if I take myself out of vacation mode and start selling in a new location, Fiverr might still end up suspending my account.
So. Has anyone done this 100% smoothly and/or can anyone shine a light on what magic words to include in a message to CS?
My other platform seems to be bewildered as to why this should even be a problem. (In fact, I think I raised a red flag just by asking if it would be). In this case, any tips would be greatly appreciated.
