    Just wanted to share this.

    I'm just usual fiverr seller who works hard to satisfy all buyers and to remain positive feedback score.

    But this morrning, I loggedin my account and saw that there is no new orders, weird, because every day i have few.

    Then I noticed that all my gigs are marked as denied (even they are live more then month) and that I'm not able to create new gig.


    I contacted fiverr support and they told me that my acc is restricted because of violating their Terms of Service shit - OMG I NEVER DID!!

    "Your account violated 3rd party copyrights and will not be reinstated."

    I contacted them once again to recheck my acc and they will see I'm playing by their rules and they doesnt respond.

    Awaiting your response ยป But when i open my ticket there is no answer from them.


    I had hardly earned 300$ on my account.

    What i should do now, to create new account and start from the beginning even i did a lot of hard work for previus account?

    That's okay if you don't want to tell, I'd guess you are selling something along the lines of YT views, FB likes etc. If that is what you were selling then no need to keep banging your head against the wall trying to reinstate the denied gigs because they wont be reinstated by fiverr support, even if other guys are selling them without any problems (don't ask me why!).

    Just make a new account and start selling your stuff there.

    What types of gig that you sell? Because it'll help us also, if we sell them...
    And you can withdraw money I think 45-90 days after.

    Fiverr likes closing account without an explanation. A buddy of mine lost $1800 because they closed his account lol and he can't do anything about it.

    What's the point of this thread if you are not going to tell us what you were selling? You violated their terms and you got banned, get over it and don't announce it, no one is interested.

    It actually depends on the severity of the issue. I also violated the terms but of other companies (Google, no surprise..) and got my gigs removed/denied.

    Fiverr is a legit and honest company, they are not like PayPal.

    You were either using a copyrighted picture in your gig or have talked about a paid theme for whatever platform, you are going to use for your clients.
    You didn't receive a response at the standard response time because your ticket was probably moved to their legal department.

    You got limited, great deal. You shouldn't sell something that aren't yours. I too selling something that consider 'illegal' in gigbucks but They never limited me because I told and ask gigbucks support before I put up my shop. Now I am level 3 seller and working fine.

    First off since we don't know what you were selling we can't really say why your account was closed? Did you use any copyrighted pictures or videos?
