    Hello
    Today is sad day coz Im banned from fiverr .After 3 years I got banned lost customers and money ( 300$)

    Just got an email :
    We've received several complaints from your previous buyers. All sellers are expected to maintain an acceptable rating, maintain professional behavior, and properly deliver their orders within our guidelines. After further review your account has been permanently disabled for violations to our terms of service.
    Please contact us again after a safety period of 90 days to learn how to withdraw any available revenue from this account.

    The funny thing is that from few months I got only positive feedbacks....no compleints ..

    What was your Niche?

    Social Media stuff? I've seen there are far fewer sellers with thousand+ completed orders providing social media (fans, tweets, etc.) than in the past. I suspect they are deleting all such accounts because of pressure from Facebook/Twitter etc.

    Is this what you were in?

    Well, at least it sounds like you are getting your money. If you have no idea about what is going on, then write them and ask.

    People give bad feedback very fast on fiverr like I have this amazingly hot and amazing girl she does the most brilliant and sexy video testimonials of all time, yet a ton of people gave her negative review? what idiot losers... expect the world for $5 within half a day. She takes her time i got 10+ videos so far that made me TONS of money already like thousands, yet some IDIOTS give her negative reviews and scare her away from fiverr. Ahh well. I also hate their site how its so slow and always asks me if i want to load the spanish fiverr... Plus some deals i rates positive wont go away from my list..

    Anyway. Sorry for BLOGbhw. My point is: If you got banned, it was for a reason.

    Contact them after 3 and a half months. Do not contact them after 2 weeks. If you contact them after 2 weeks, they will tell you to wait another 90 days. If you contact them after 1 month they will tell you to wait another 90 days.

    So just forget about it, set a reminder somewhere to log back in September, tell the support that the safety period passed and they will activate your account just for withdrawal and there you go. :)

    I think you'll be safer is you stick to 100% whitehat when dealing with Fiverr.

    Please, give us more details about your ban. I know there's not a lot of money to be made there, but still was planning to put a couple gigs there...

    I just got third message from fiverr:

    I'm sorry but we don't offer phone service but I'm happy to assist you through here.
    Reselling illegal software and services is against our Terms of Service. After further review your account has been permanently disabled for violations to our terms of service and cannot be restored. You are welcome to contact us in 90 days so we can assist you further.


    The funny thing is that I didn't sell any software ...there are many gigs like mine

    I agree with what you're saying, I have a guy that is very good with graphic designs on fiverr that has so many negative feedback votes because he takes too long to deliver, personally I don't blame him, I know he's really busy with over 200 orders in queue.

    Fiverr is clearly pressured by the big boys. I miss the days they simply didn't care about what you sold, as long as it sold.
