Allow Fiverr Username Change


Recommended Posts

What my suggestion would be to both limit frivolous changes while giving legitimate business an option to change their username would be to make it a paid option once you're reached level 2, with a limit on how often you could change it (maybe one a year or something). If Fiverr charged $25 to change your username, they could make it a deal where you have to hop on a video call with a Fiverr rep so they can confirm the change.

Where I see this option most likely being relevant is people starting with a personal account to do some side-work and then that evolving into a full-time branded business (which happened to me). In that case, being able to update your username to reflect that change in your account usage would be very helpful.

ohh ... noo ... I only chose this ridiculous screenname for this one specific writing project. I had no idea I'd be stuck with it for the duration of my time at Fiverr ☹️

Your username is your unique identity on Fiverr and it cannot be changed. If you want to use another username, you need to close your account and create a new one. If you would like to use the email address in your current account for your new account, please change it before closing it.


To change your email address:

  1. Go to your Profile Settings.
  2. Enter your new email and click Save.
  3. You’ll receive an email to your current email address requesting to confirm the change. Once the change is confirmed, you’ll receive another email to your new email address finalizing the change.

If you have previously verified your phone number:


You will receive an email confirmation of your new email address. Click on the link in the email to continue. After clicking on the link in the confirmation email, you will receive an SMS phone code to finalize the change.

If you don’t have access to your current email address, complete the phone verification process to receive the confirmation message to your new email.

Yeah, it would be great for a buyer that you had a bad time working with to just change his name and come back again....

The username is final. You chose it yourself when you created your account. Why would you want to change it? You need to think hard before you submit the username, as it's final. Plus, it would be unprofessional to change the username, as people would just believe you are someone else. What if I changed my current username to happyflower3025? Customers would be confused and they would see me as unprofessional. 

That's right, think carefully before using the one

I hope that Fiveer realizes that Businesses evolve and change and with that also most of the time the Branding of the person/company, and not to being able to change a Username I think is a bad design decision, If Fiverr is afraid of too often changes then just allow it every few months and notify all past customers that the name has changed, I don’t see any problem with this. The only static thing of us should be our ID in the Fiverr Database and not our Usernames.

I totally agree with you. To be honest, there was a time when I want to change my username. But When I checked there was no any option for changing the username. 

I am with you. On my behalf, there will be good results with the update like this. ✌️

I think if a seller has a maintained a high level of quality over a consistent span of time, an option to change their user name would be a nice option if they felt the need to do so. 

Fiverr is a business. When we look at it as a business, all business might go through rebranding and renaming their business. Even big companies do it for various reasons. FB is now called Meta (FB is now a product within Meta). So changing of the name is important for all business as they grow and may feel a new name will help them.

I think that’s a great suggestion.

Most people when joining the platform used a very personal screen name, or something that they grew out of. So this would be a great feature actually.

Maybe they could allow a total of 2 changes in a member’s lifetime?

And we would need to apply and have some sort of check on Fiverr’s end?

(so that no one can game the system)

correct
