Is it cool to use country names as prefix to usernames?


Recommended Posts

Once you have joined Fiverr, you cannot change your user name, so at this point, unless you want to delete your account and start fresh, I would say it is a moot point.

Also, I do not think to have your country name first would matter to clients unless you offer service from a country where certain services are sought. I proofread, and many buyers want proofreaders to be from the US, the UK, Canada, or Australia.

What is up with your profile picture? On the main site it is of a lovely young woman and here it is of a guy?

Ooh… Thanks @uk1000

Though I don’t see why that should be an issue since the account is already verified. I do see some sellers using some sort of “banner” as a profile picture. I have been wondering if fiverr is ever cool with that too

Yes you can use a banner or logo or something as long as you own the copyrights to it.

This is the help section for that:


It says:

Your profile image should be unique and real. We recommend uploading a picture of yourself to add that personal touch to your profile. You can also upload an image that reflects the type of services you offer.


  • Do not use images from the web.
  • Do not use images that you don’t have the copyrights for.
  • Do not include “Fiverr” badges in your profile image.
  • Avoid using a lot of text in your profile image.

Technically saying “unique and real” - the real bit sounds like they want a real photo but they only say they “recommend” uploading an picture of yourself and there’s plenty of sellers that use images like logos or drawn images.
