    I'm not going to give out my name, but let's say I'm big on Fiverr. The support team is very understanding. If they are holding your money, I don't see how they have any choice but to send it to your PayPal. It's your cut afterall. The only way they could deny you is if they issue refunds for all of it AND RETURN their cut.

    I think i made two mistakes. First, some of my buyers asked me for longer duration video and previously, i told all of them no. Now, i created one longer video, so i messaged them all, that if they need longer video, they can reply me. Now, longer video cost more than $5, so i told them pay me in paypal. These 2 things, i did. May be this thing irked them and they close my account. But this shouldnt have happen, as i only messaged 20 of my own buyers.

    When they will respond me? In 24 hours?

    Thanks

    Dealing on Fiverr through PayPal is against the terms of use. You are finished, but you should be able to seize your earned funds. You must have been featured since you go up to $300, so they will likely pay attention. Trouble is that if your account is closed you won't be able to contact them from it. Just hope they believe you on a new account or contact a lawyer because in one respect they are holding your earnings.

    General terms * Violation of Fiverr's Terms of Service may get your account permanently blocked. * Sellers will be able to withdraw their revenues from blocked accounts after a safety period of 30 to 90 days, depending on block reason, from day of last cleared payment received in their account and subject to Fiverr's approval. They should pay you, but they can hold it for up to 90 days. Also, you dont have to be featured to earn hundreds of dollars. I have made $900.00 on fiverr and havent been featured and its all from 2 gigs.

    that is your mistake! you are not allowed to to that on fiverr.. submit a ticket and explain to them with details and the end of your expain you promise that you will never do the same mistake again, and you will get your account back on 3-5 days.

    ~ my experience ~
