It's an automatic approval if you say you work for a big name company (so no check done there). The approvals that are done manually are the small business that aren't in Fiverr's database.

I haven't received this feature yet.

That being said, I am not sure how Fiverr checks these clients, because I saw $5 or $10 writers claiming they worked with Samsung, Logitech, Netflix, Starbucks, etc. 

 I dont know about other sellers but  it took a very, very long time. It got to the point I was just going to delete the list as i thought it was not approved and  "something" was asked which I think was related to this. if people are adding companies like to this to 5$ gigs though you are probably right. its like the people who put every language possible next to their name and don't speak any of them.

This explains why people lie and choose big companies.

Oh jeez this is sooooo open to abuse.

I agree! The way it's set up, it's encouraged to add a big name company (and your are even instructed on the form to use a big name company). Adding in a smaller client isn't really encouraged, and like @dev_rittick and @sunboatrecords mentioned, it can take a long time, even 3-5 months for an approval. Adding in big name clients helps to make Fiverr look more credible, too (which is why I believe those are automatic approvals).

Yet, it has backfired so much.

Go browse the Audio Editing category. Half of the sellers list Spotify, Amazon, iTunes as their clients.

This is a complete LIE! Among my clients is for clients that you have worked with, not for services that you have some minor involvement with.

My cat can submit a song to Spotify (well, with some help). That does not make her a credible audio engineer!

Look at the Writing category, there are so many of them who claim to have worked for Medium (well, they might have published something there...anyone can do that, it doesn't mean they've worked for the company itself). The same goes for Amazon.

And "digital marketers" have all apparently worked for Facebook, Twitter, and so on.

At least we know, if we want to hire someone, who to avoid.

With Fiverr's push for "impressive" profiles, that would be an impressive profile to see ...a cat with Spotify as a Top Client! 😂

Thanks to all who tried to clear my question's answer. 

After reading all of your comments i am totally hopeless about this topic.Lol

As long as you submitted your top clients, it's just a waiting game right now!

I thought they were going to contact businesses as well and before listing anything I went through each business and drew up a list of what was done and when and one business added content about me to the site. I wonder if people have misunderstood what this is for or are intentionally abusing it. I guess its a combination of both.

Clearly people are abusing it. Fiverr allowed them to choose businesses from an ever-growing list and they found it a lot easier to do that, while also creating a fiction in their buyer's mind that they are highly qualified. So there are plenty of abusers like this in the writing section where I am active.. I can only assume it's a site-wide issue. But when someone that asks for $5 or $10 for their gig says they worked with Netflix, Starbucks and Microsoft as their main clients, that's fishy as hell man.

Maybe they thought that writing an article in Starbucks while using a laptop with windows on it and watching netflix qualified, or maybe they are just abusing the system. I can state categorically that one of the businesses you have listed above would not in any shape or form outsource written content

It's just system manipulation at its finest. And they know very well what they are doing. But it works for them I guess. A buyer should be able to figure out on their own that no one with such pedigree/referrals would charge $5 or $10.

Years ago there was an issue with sellers selling Amazon reviews.

Amazon wasn't happy with this and sued over a 1000 of them, or tried to. I'm not sure how it ended up but it was a big deal at the time.

I know it's different but I think (big) companies wouldn't be happy if they saw that sellers were claiming to have worked there when they hadn't.

I also see a lot of sellers listing Fiverr as a company they've worked for on their profile because they have a gig on Fiverr.

Similarly, if you check out Glassdoor so many of Fiverrs reviews are from Fiverr sellers (it's meant for Fiverr employees, not freelancers with gigs). 

This whole thing is a blend of ignorance, stupidity and willful deceit on the part of (some) Fiverr sellers.

Starbucks

They gave me a voucher because I provided feedback once on a sandwich product I ate.

The voucher has a financial value.

It was in return for a service I provided to Starbucks.

I am now a product / sandwich specialist at Starbucks.

And Starbucks is therefore now a paying client of mine.

And they gave me a voucher because I filled out a survey on their website.

That voucher, too, had financial value.

So Starbucks is now a paying client of mine, too!
