Need To Add Gender option and ID card verification system in fiverr

Hello everybody,
I am Jayanto Chowdhury. I used Fiverr many days. Suddenly I see a Mistake in Fiverr. This mistake is Fiverr don’t have any Gender option on their website. I guess it’s essential for identify every Fiverr seller’s account. Because I see somebody uses the Male name but use female photos in his or her profile Or They are male but they use a female name on their account. So, it’s not fair. And I see many people use Multiple accounts in Fiverr Using a different name. They are able to create Multiple accounts because Fiverr doesn’t have any account verification system to verify user identity. So, It’s a violation of Fiverr TOS. If Fiverr Build up a system, If somebody creates new Fiverr account then they must need to verify their identity using their country provided Any ID card (Such as National ID Card, Passport etc). I guess Then it helps to identify every seller profile and They aren’t able to create multiple accounts & fake profile.
This is my opinion If you guess it’s an issue then please decide on my suggestion.
Thanks

Fiverr was designed so that all users have anonymity - it doesn’t matter what gender, age, colour, nationality etc. users are.

If a user is male but wants to identify as female, that’s fine, and vice versa.

Anybody who wants to break the ToS will find a way to do it, whether they use a photo of a female celebrity, a logo or anything else.

I have no photo identification of any sort, and wouldn’t want to have to get one just to sell on Fiverr. I sell on other online marketplaces without anybody being aware of my gender - why should Fiverr be any different?

In addition to what @offlinehelpers said, Fiverr isn’t a dating site. In most cases, seller’s gender is irrelevant.

ok. But National ID card verification It’s important or not?

Nope - don’t have one! :sunny:

In some countries, it’s not mandatory to have it. I doubt that anyone would want to get one just to be able to sell on Fiverr.

Why should you care about identity or gender if the seller delivers you a good service?

:thinking:

Do you think females use pics of males to lure in buyers?

Or the male population assumes using a hot chick pic will increase sales?

OK, what about the people using pics of monsters, logos, and characters like this?

So you think it’s a good idea to have identifiers such as:

gender
race
religion?

Or just gender is the important one?

I think harassment could be an issue in that case. I believe some sellers already do get unwanted attention in that front, just by using a sexy picture (Or alternatively just being sexy), even if they are of the opposing gender.

ID verification I do agree about. Creates lots of trust, to know sellers are who they claim to be. I see tons of identical looking accounts selling duplicate services, so I believe those are the same person.

Gender does come into play in the voiceover category. Can’t have a male voiceover doing a female voiceover, but other than someone wanting or needed a female/male spokesperson, on-camera video I don’t see the point.

Well, maybe and maybe not. Salespeople on the other end of the phone line when I answer frequently think I am a guy because I have a deeper voice. Maybe I have a future as a male voice over person.

That’s funny. You could offer both options maybe.

If proving identity is a problem to a seller, then perhaps Fiverr isn’t the right place for their shady business.

I think Fiverr is pretty trustworthy company to give private details to. But sure, there is a risk that any site can get hacked and private information stolen.

Fiverr has already started rolling out/implementing an ID verification process where Fiverr users are required to submit their national/international identification documents (passport/driver’s license/national ID card). Sellers who refuse/fail to verify their ID, for whatever reason, face account closure/suspension; they will no longer be able to sell on Fiverr. It’s unfortunate, but that’s how things are right now.

And, I am pretty sure Fiverr did not start this ID verification process just because the OP started this thread. So, I don’t see the point in rebuking the OP. Besides, this is a public forum. Forum users have the right/freedom to say whatever they want so long as they abide by the forum’s rules and guidelines.

And much to the OP’s displeasure, I’m sure, it hasn’t cut down on the number of guys pretending to be attractive women. :crazy_face:
