    Well, just a friendly warning.

    I have read their TOS very carefully before creating these accounts and there is not a single mention against creating multiple accounts.

    All my accounts were closed yesterday and the earnings (more than $5000) blocked for 45 to 90 days. After this period, I would be able to ask them to release the funds, yet they might as well decide to keep them. All accounts had 100% positive feedback except two that had 99% rating. I was making about $100-120 per day and all orders were delivered typically in 24 hours time. Never shared any contact information or did anything stupid or blackhat with the accounts either.

    For those of you, who have multiple accounts - just something to look forward to happening to you as well ;)

    Are you one of those people running the same gigs on each account?

    Using the same text etc?

    As I do see a heap of that going on and wondered how long until they get banned.

    If running multiple account's I'd be making sure they look like they are all by different people as much as possible.

    Different text, unique pictures for each gig, the gigs were offering similar services though. I was using the same pp account, which is what enabled them to link all the accounts and close them en masse.

    Paypal allows you add multiple emails to a Paypal account. Can't you just add multiple emails in your Paypal account and use each one of those on your Fivver accounts?

    Was about to say the same thing.

    Though they can also see who they have paid (main account name / business name) so I guess they could trace that too.

    Yes, but I'm guessing using one proxy each to access your Fiverr accounts, and using a seperate Paypal email for each Fiverr account might reduce the chances of them running a manual check on your Name. Also, there can be many people who share the same name around the world, but that's not true with email. So using different emails should definitely keep them confused for a while.

    I'm guessing spinning your gig title and description on each account will help too.

    OMFL , wow , thats was the most thoughtout and informative reply i have seen on BHW today

    and guys by adding the email to PP account wount solve a problem coz they can see the business name which will be same for every email ,

    a small tip which i use: I have registered 5 different accounts on PP on the name of my family members , none of them is into Im or seo and they dont even use PP , so i manage my work using those accounts and also you need to take care of the Taxes for the relatives .

    I hope you get your money back after 45 days , 5k is a big amount and be extra concious while dealing with this next time

    good luck

    You can have up to three (or was it five) emails added to your pp, still not enough for all the accounts that I had. If you want to do it right, then using friends and family pp accounts and changing ip every time you log on is probably the way to go. Not sure if this is worth it though, the key to making good money there is automation and I spent a lot of time automating all the gigs, pretty much all I had to do was get the order and press a few buttons. Again, the sellers were getting all their orders done in time and great service for their $5.

    I have three computers with 2 connections, running orders 10-12 hours per day. The reason I've decided to go with fiverr (as opposed to doing more selling on the forums) was that I had to spend very little time interacting with the sellers. IMO when selling low-ticket items, spending a lot of time answering questions is counter-productive.

    How many Fiverr accounts did you own? Opening paypal accounts using family and friends sounds like a lot of hassle if one is aiming for 100+ USD a day. However, looks like people who only want a small side income (less than 500 USD per month), could use one paypal with 5 different emails on Fiverr and probably get away with?
