    I had a pretty lucrative fiverr account last summer and like many others it got demoted from level 2 to level 0 when fiverr thought i was trying to work outside of fiverr. I have left fiverr since last summer but I am wondering If it is possible to open 2-3 accounts with different IPs but all the emails linked to the same paypal. I saw some people who say its no problem and some people who say you will get banned. In my experience, fiverr only bans all of your accounts when you break a rule with 1 of them, they don't specifically ban you for multiple accounts. Anyone got any input on this? Thanks!

    Fiverr used to not care, but now apparently wants to keep tabs on egregious abusers of their system to ensure they don't return. So for safe measure, it's best to put each account on a different proxy or dedicated IP, except for a second account on an IP that will be used for buying gigs only.

    Just set one up from your friend's house in his or her name and give them a small cut I have 2 fiverr accounts, but they both sell different services, one sells white hat SEO and the other sells black hat SEO.

    same paypal will create problems .. even if you set primary and secondary emails in paypal .
    i had an issue with them . they messaged me about this .
    having multiple accounts from different ids will not create problem

    ALWAYS separate your accounts. Even if they don't care right now (which it seems they do), they will care eventually and you'll be screwed when they start cleaning up their accounts. Plan for the future, people.

    I'm pretty sure you can have multiple Paypal e-mail addresses...correct me if I'm wrong. Although maybe if the name is the same they would catch on?

    Shit! now i am considering starting new accounts since they are so linked. I already added fake reviews and collections so its going to be a giant pain in the ass.:violin:

    Also what about when you need to cash out your money with paypal. It is pretty hard using a proxy with paypal and you link straight to paypal when you cash out. Things always go wrong when using proxies+paypal. I am thinking of using unsecured wifis or public wifis to cash out the paypals.

    Using public wifis is the safest. Have you tried using your mobile data (4G, etc.)? I think it's really hard to track the IPs you get from mobile connections because they're basically all the same.

    You can link multiple emails to one paypal account...but the name I'll remain the same, as fas as I know.

    yeah i used to have tethering when i had a jailbroken iphone. That is also a good idea.

    I think unique IPs and different emails connected to the same paypal will be good enough. I have a pretty unique name but I doubt they will ban for this because people have really common names like john smith and carlos lopez (for example).
