Initially, It’s only for US seller. May be later, We everyone have to go for it.

I’m wondering if you see the W-9 when you look at your account setting. Do you have it? I assume you are not in the US so I wonder if everyone has that or only US persons.

I see a seller in India has it.

Yes, I have that but now it’s now only for US.

I just realized that this might put a stop to all of the fake US accounts! :rofl:

I was thinking the very same thing. With this requirement, there is no possible way for fraudsters to keep pretending they are from the USA. Now, to have USA listed on their profiles, they have to legally prove it, and pretenders in other parts of the world aren’t going to be able to do that. They’ll either have to be listed with their native country, or their accounts will be banished from Fiverr.

This will likely be a win-win for all buyers and sellers on Fiverr.

Interesting. I had to verify my identity with a picture of myself and my US government ID to prove myself and have to prove it again with my SSN, address, and tax ID?

How can others claim they are US based when their not? Fake ID?

Apparently.

They use a VPN to access the internet.

I know using a vpn will change your IP address, but it will definitely not change your government issued ID that shows your not from the US.

That’s what I’m trying to figure out.

That’s why people who pretend to be from the USA, won’t be able to prove it.
