  1. Read more at: https://help.fiverr.com/hc/en-us/articles/360010560118-Fiverr-s-new-level-system
  2. So we don't need Seller Plus to get this insight? Cause we can simply go to the buyer profile, get the name of Sellers and check the order prices. In SP, it shows as $101-$500, while in the Seller profile it shows as $200-$400. So that's more meaningful than SP.
  3. First of all, let me welcome you to Fiverr Forums! You're about to embark on an exciting journey filled with opportunities to showcase your talents and connect with buyers from around the world. We're thrilled to have you join the Fiverr community. As you get started, it's important to stay aware of potential scams to ensure a safe and positive experience. Here are some tips to help you identify and avoid potential scams. 1. FIVERR NEVER CONTACTS YOU THROUGH MESSAGES One of the first things to keep in mind is that Fiverr will never contact you through direct messages. Scammers may impersonate Fiverr staff, claiming they need to verify your account or address some issue related to your Fiverr account. Don't fall for this trap. 2. DO NOT SHARE YOUR EMAIL Scammers may ask for your email address, as needing it for project communication or sharing project requirements. Sharing your email can lead to phishing attempts and other malicious activities. Keep in your mind not to share your email address, unless it is explicitly required as part of the service you are offering. Otherwise, you cannot share your email address, under any circumstances. 3. SELLERS DO NOT HAVE TO VERIFY THEIR CREDIT CARD Another common scam involves to verify your account with your credit or debit card. As a seller on Fiverr, you will never be required to provide such verification. Scammers use this tactic to steal your card information. 4. DO NOT FALL FOR QR CODES Scammers may attempt to bypass Fiverr's security measures by sending QR codes containing phishing website URLs to your inbox. Since sending the phishing link directly may get blocked by Fiverr filters, scammers use QR codes as an alternative method to trick users into visiting malicious websites. Avoid scanning QR codes sent through Fiverr messages. 5. AVOID CLICKING EXTERNAL LINKS Scammers often send links that lead to phishing sites or malicious downloads, aiming to steal your information or compromise your device. If you are not requested something from an external website, or not expecting an external link related to your service, simply report the buyer. 6. DOUBLE CHECK THE URL BEFORE NAVIGATING It’s important to ensure you’re on the legitimate Fiverr website. Scammers sometimes create fake websites that look identical to Fiverr to steal your login information. Here are all the legitimate Fiverr domains. Do not engage with other imposter websites or email addresses. IF YOU SUCCESSFULLY IDENTIFIED A SCAM? 1. Report their profile to Fiverr’s support team immediately. You can do this by using the "Report" option available in the message portal. 2. Stop all communication with the scammer and refrain from engaging further. 3. If you submitted your login information thorough a scam channel, immediately change your password and enable two-step verification to protect your Fiverr account. 4. If you submitted your credit card information thorough a scam channel, immediately contact your bank and ask to block your credit card. IF YOU ARE NOT SURE? 1. If you encounter a situation that seems suspicious but you're unsure whether it's a scam, don't hesitate to reach out to Fiverr's Customer Support team for assistance (support@fiverr.com). 2. Additionally, you can seek input and advice from the Fiverr Community Forum. Fellow sellers may have encountered similar situations and can offer valuable insights and support (https://community.fiverr.com/forums). By following these tips, you can minimize your risk and focus on building a successful career on Fiverr. Good luck on your freelancing journey! - CreativeColumn - Top Rated Seller @ Fiverr
  4. Thanks for your answer. Let's see how it goes.
  5. Hi Flip. Was there any specific reason for that? I have verified by ID few years back, not sure if I need to verify again. But I am not risking my account.
  6. Side note: You should check the "From" address when identifying phishing emails, not the "Reply to" address. You can just use any email to "Reply to" field when sending an email from SMTP protocol.
  7. Both these email addresses are legitimate and belongs to Fiverr. "No reply" means don't reply to this email, and the server will not accept your response. This is also legitimate. Fiverr uses InvisionCommunity CMS for this forum. So the emails related to Fiverr forum will receive through this email address. But please note that, all emails you are receiving through this email address may not belongs to the Fiverr Forum.
  8. I am not an authorized person to respond. But I am really scared to try these new features.
  9. No. It's a violation. You cannot do this. All of your Fiverr accounts will get blocked due to sharing the same PayPal account. One PayPal account per each Fiverr account.
  10. 1. Call your bank. 2. Ask to block and deactivate the current card. 3. Request a new card. 4. Report and block the buyer.
  11. Hello Antonio, I'm sorry to hear about the situation you're facing. Fiverr automatically disables buyer accounts after several disputes or chargebacks to ensure the security of the platform. Given your situation, where the disputes were mistakenly initiated by your bank, it's important to communicate this clearly to Fiverr Support. Please open a support ticket by emailing support@fiverr.com and provide a detailed explanation of what happened. Make sure to include all relevant information and any documentation you have from your bank and PayPal confirming that there are no ongoing disputes. Please note that the support queue may be long, so it might take around 48 hours for you to receive a reply. However, if you haven't violated any of Fiverr's terms, there's a good chance you'll get your account reinstated.
  12. While you are waiting for customer support, I recommend you to log into your Payoneer account and check the "Upcoming Payments" section. Some of my previous payments were there for few days before appearing on the Payoneer balance. They do not send the email confirmation until the payments are released to your main balance.
  13. SCAM. Note: Do not share your email address with anyone.
  14. Congratulations, and good luck!
