I created my Fiverr account around February and started getting traction in June. (To be fair, I didn't promote my gigs) Fiverr just hit me with the verify your ID bs. The problem is that I just took a picture off of Google to use as the profile picture. Any way I can avoid getting my account suspended or did I mess up?

Are there any rules for having to use your REAL picture on a profile picture? I think they will just verify your ID and you are good to go.

I don't think those two things are connected. Unless the owner of the picture filed a dmca or something, the id verification is just for verification. Just go ahead and submit the doc. See what happens. You have nothing to lose lol.

From when Fiverr started doing ID verification? I will never give my real ids to Fiverr. Hell No. Op buy some fake ids from BHW market place.

I have had this notice but it in the email they stated that the picture was not original and that they found it elsewhere online. I changed it to a picture of a flower I took and all was good. I was not asked for ID's

I'm not sure, that's why I'm asking on here.

Well, that's true, but I got a few orders and I'm greedy, I don't want to lose the money I made, even though it's not much.

I'm not sure, but apparently I have 14 weeks to verify it.

They're saying that I have 14 days to verify if I want to keep buying or selling on Fiverr

Just an update.
I couldn't verify my account due to some sort of bug that Fiverr has. I've contacted support. My account was restricted regardless. Support has forwarded my ticket to their tech team.
It's a waiting game from now on.
Will see what happens.

Final update, in case anyone was interested. I put my sim in another device and verified my identity that way. My account got restored. Everything seems to be fine, & I'm back to earning on Fiverr.

Hi, I hope you are doing well, my account has been restricted because of ID verification too. I need your help to recover my account, how can I contact you?
it's urgent.
Thanks

where are you from and how much did you make I am a Fiverr seller that has made over 10k and they ask for tax and id so that's uncommon to me if they ask for id unless you provided it before on another account and didn't want to get banned or new that you were under age or something
