What is FIVERR ID VERIFICATION


#42

Where did you send the scanned ID to? I thought it had to be on the phone?

Yeah, huh?


#43

I love how you couldn’t buy or sell but could still buy a Learn course. :smile:


#44

I had it on my phone


#45

Did you scan it with your phone camera or a real scanner? Did the app allow you to upload this as a file from your phone when asking you to take a picture of your ID?


#46

I found this, for Android:

Scan a document
Open the Google Drive app Google Drive.
In the bottom right, tap Add.
Tap Scan Scan.
Take a photo of the document you’d like to scan.
Adjust scan area: Tap Crop.
Take photo again: Tap Re-scan current page Refresh.
Scan another page: Tap Add.
To save the finished document, tap Done.

I scanned it with a real scanner and it allowed me upload it from my phone


#48

I know we’re all thinking the same thing.

If you can do that, why wouldn’t someone just forge an ID?

That makes the system 100% defeated.


#49

What’s this for? I’m a bit confused


#50

I’m not sure yet I CAN do that lol. I don’t use my phone for anything but calling, texts, and occasional photos.


#51

I’m confused too. Someone said they scanned their ID with their phone so I looked that up and found that. It sounds like it’s just a picture to me.


#52

How do you upload something you scanned to your phone?


#53

I was actually thinking that I would scan my passport to make sure the image is perfect.

However, yes, his is highly unusual for a genuine KYC ID app.

The thing is, it would actually be much easier for sellers to get scanned ID documents and high-quality selfie images ready in advance to upload when necessary, especially if they are using an old smartphone with a potato camera.

EDIT: Once again, this is where some official guidelines would come in super handy :slight_smile:


#54

Can anyone tell me how to upload photos to a phone? Sorry but I’m not phone savvy.


#55

picard


#56

Hope my account won’t get disabled since I’ve been told I have verified my account, that’s my concern.


#57

It sounds like if you have the selfie and the scan of your ID on your phone you are ok with that.


#58

You’ll get an email if it doesn’t take. I don’t know if they send emails for success, but if you got one, i’d say you’re good to go. My denial email was sent within a day.


#59

Was the selfie on your phone already too, like your ID?

A scanned ID would be crystal clear, more so than a phone picture.

How does this app compare the ID with the selfie? It can recognize if it’s the same person?


#60

The selfie wasn’t an actual selfie it was a portrait of myself but it’s well lit and it’s on my phone also.


#61

So you uploaded both from your phone. Thank you. I had the impression the app had to take the picture of you.
