    About 2 months ago my Fiverr account got restricted. The other day when the 45 day period passed I withdrew the money I had left in there.

    I asked support if I can make a new account, and they basically said no, fuck off...

    Okay. So now I want to create a new account. Obviously I'll have to use a different name, email, change IP, clear cookies/cache/history, etc.

    But what do I do with Paypal?

    Will adding a secondary email to my paypal and using that be okay, or is it risky? The thing is, I only have 1 paypal account...

    Hello,

    I have two Fiverr accounts with different name, email, IP, but the same Paypal account with a secondary adress. Until now, no problem (and I withdrew money with the two accounts).

    That's great. Thank you.

    So that can work. I am worried that they can see my name on Paypal when/if I withdraw from my new account some day, and then ban me.

    I guess I'll just go for it.

    Thanks a lot.

    I'll quote:

    "Your account has been permanently disabled for violations of our Terms of Service.

    Users who upload any Copyright infringing materials or offers a service that violates a Third Parties Terms of Service may have their accounts disabled. By offering a service, users undertake that he has sufficient permissions, rights and/or licenses to provide, sell or resell the service that they offer on Fiverr."

    Let me tell you, it was because of the 3rd party infringement. I was selling iMacros, which I created. However, those iMacros obviously infringed on 3rd party sites. So, that's why I got restricted. I'm 99% sure that that was the reason.

    But Fiverr is a damn goldmine, and I want to get back into it. Of course, I won't sell the same stuff I was selling last time. I just don't want to make a new account and go through orders and make money and then in the end get restricted again or even worse lose my money because, whatever, they figure out that my paypal account has already been previously used or something..

    And the other problem is. Now that my account was restricted, I had to wait 45 days to get the remained of my money that I had on there. But to get it, after the 45 days, I had to send a photo of my government-issued-ID or passport, a previous transaction ID, and my paypal email. So if I make a new account with a fake name, and that account gets restricted in the future, I won't have an ID or Passport to send them. So I'll have to find a friend or something to use their name on there, so that if it ever comes down to me needing to send Fiverr the ID or Passport, I can get it.

    Mine was banned for complaints about asking people to communicate offsite. I make more money when my customers pay me directly lol.

    Damn man, you should've known that the ban hammer was coming with doing that.

    But it's a great way to make money, using throwaway accounts on fiverr and getting anyone and everyone you can to do business with you off of Fiverr. You can make much more money taking the middleman (fiverr) out of the equation.
