Thanks for the information which I already knew before.

what if I’m using my google acc or facebook to access fiverr ?

The process is still the same (irrespective of how you log on to Fiverr). Once you get the notification to verify your ID, you will be directed to the link mentioned in the original post, and you will have to enter your Fiverr login details (or, in your case, via the Facebook or google login) and then the verification process starts. The process is the exact same.

Edit (added): I know this for a fact because I used google/Fb login to initiate my Fiverr ID verification process.

So this process to verify the ID is for everyone using the platform and it doesn’t mean that you did something wrong at any point right ? I suppose everyone will go through it now or later ? cause I’ve performing on the platform for a year and ever encountred such things, correct me if I’m wrong!

That’s right. :slight_smile: Apparently, Fiverr has been experimenting with this ID verification thing since early 2018 (as far as I know). They even did a beta test of the ID verification process in 2018… I think in May 2018? So, yeah, I think they’re slowly rolling it out to everyone.

Taken from Fiverr’s seller help center:

At Fiverr, we’re always doing our best to keep our community safe for everyone, which is why we routinely ask that sellers verify their identity with an official government ID. We’ll only ask you to do this once.

“Routinely ask that sellers verify their identity” makes me think they are planning on doing it in small batches at a time instead of asking everyone to do it all at once.

Here’s an email from a Fiverr CS rep. from May 2018 (during the beta-testing of the Fiverr ID verification):

This may or may not still hold true in 2019. IDK :man_shrugging:

It would a lot easier for them to review the documents if they’re doing it manually, so as to avoid lots of accounts being suspended, I have received an email back in october on my phone saying “activate account” can I inbox you so I can send you the screenshot and get further informations if you have any Idea what’s that ?!

There are literally MILLIONS of Fiverr accounts. It will take them several YEARS if they were to do it manually. I don’t think that’s a legit option, imo.

I don’t think that has anything to do with the Fiverr ID verification. I think “activate account” might have something to do with setting your Fiverr account/profile up.

Feel free to attach it here on the forum. That way, even if I don’t know what that is, others who know about it will be able to help you out. It will also be informative for the other forum users if you share it here. :slight_smile:

I’m sorry, but this simply can’t be correct. If you use FB or Google to login to Fiverr, you login via a security token. Your Google or FB username or password is not the same as your Fiverr password and should not be treated as such.

If when Fiverr directs users to a login area, there is no button to click to login via FB or Google, users will not be able to enter their FB or Google details manually. In this case, can you confirm whether such buttons are present?

If not, FB & Google users may be exempt from ID checks (at least for the time being). Alternatively, it could be that someone has overlooked the need to add FB & Google support, in which case this should be reported to Fiverr asap.

After like 10 minutes it returned to normal, I think there were a glitch somewhere cause neither the app or the site were working!! and when I check my email there is nothing in it…

I am sorry if it doesn’t align with your logic/reasoning, but this is what I experienced firsthand. I use a FB/google login to access Fiverr and this is what I logged in with even when I did my Fiverr ID verification.

Once I clicked on the link (mentioned in the original post), it took me to a login page which almost looked like Fiverr’s main login page:

If you notice, in addition to the regular username/pw option, there is an option to login via google/Facebook too. Once I selected the appropriate platform, I was directed to step 1 of the Fiverr ID verification process upon successful authentication of my login details.

That’s good.

Probable.

Just by curiosity, did you have any previous accounts before the current one ?!

Who? Me? Never. :slight_smile:

Do you still think Fiverr only asks people to verify their ID if they suspect a ToS violation? :rofl:

No not really, it’s just because I saw in another thread “13 hours ago” that the user’s account was restricted due to failure to verify and it turned to be that, that user has another account that was banned months ago.

Different case - that user wasn’t asked to verify their ID - they offered to do so after they’d had their account restricted.

Okay. But, I don’t see how that would relate to my particular case as I’ve successfully completed the Fiverr ID verification. :slight_smile:

Hey, hanshuber16!

I have a question to you, please help me to provide your valuable opinion :pray:

I have set a Payoneer account in my Fiverr profile to withdraw and payment purpose that is some else (my relative). So should i use to verify my Fiverr account that person NID and picture? Or should I use my own NID and picture?

Note: I don’t have NID that time to open a Payoneer account.

So what should I do now? Please please let me know.

Hi,

I am sorry, but I don’t use Payoneer. So, I have no idea how that works. You’re better off contacting Payoneer about that (imo).

Good luck!

Edit: Sorry, I misunderstood your question when I wrote my initial :arrow_heading_up: reply.

I agree with @misscrystal. You are supposed to use your own info. for Fiverr ID verification. It is a violation of Fiverr’s ToS to misrepresent your identity.

Take from the ToS:

Authentic Fiverr Profile - You may not create a false identity on Fiverr, misrepresent your identity, create a Fiverr profile for anyone other than yourself (a real person), or use or attempt to use another user’s account or information; Your profile information, including your description, skills, location, etc., while may be kept anonymous, must be accurate and complete and may not be misleading, illegal, offensive or otherwise harmful. Fiverr reserves the right to require users to go through a verification process in order to use the Site (whether by using ID, phone, camera, etc.).

You need to use your own information to verify your fiverr account. You cannot pretend to be someone else to verify your account. It’s not up to Payoneer to tell fiverr if it’s really you.

I don’t know how Payoneer will handle it however.
