Have I missed something?
I just visited the “No one here can help you, you will need to contact customer service chronicles” AKA the main forum. There is apparently a new kind of hysteria doing the rounds concerning ID requirements.
Now, I’m not happy that 5r wants my ID. However, I’m even less happy about not knowing the ins and outs of the whole affair. Usually, when I have to verify my ID, I need to do so via an app. If that’s the case with Fiverr, I will need to get a new phone as my camera on my current phone is worse than Mr. Value Investors potato camera.
I’m not going to do that if it turns out you can just send a copy of your ID via email. (Which is fine with Payoneer). In this case, would it really kill Fiverr to outline some official ID verification guidelines?
Moaning posts on the other forum seem to concern situations where people:
- Have an ID but 5r won’t accept it
- Have just been told they have to provide ID and basically have 2-weeks to get one
- Go through the validation process but get told verification has failed
To me, all these problems could be avoided if Fiverr just put some official guidelines up somewhere.
