Once you’ve been banned from fiverr, good luck getting your account unsuspended. I use fiverr to work with vendors to do some of my SEO work, as part of the internet marketing service I provide. Speaking from experience, there’s no second chances with fiverr. I was banned for no reason other than I claimed I was violating their TOS. That was their only explanation. I had done $100’s if not $1,000’s of dollars in business and the only “glitch” I ever had was receiving a warning about attempting to contact their sellers. I realized my error and never did it again. Then about 1 year later, they banned me. I corresponded with them briefly, until they quit responding to my request for more specific reasons.
Create a Second Fiverr Account?
Next, I created another account using a different username and email address and everything worked fine for about one month, then wham, suspended again. This time they offered a little better explanation. They said I was using multiple accounts. Again, they stopped communicating with me after that one answer to my support ticket.
I don’t sell anything on fiverr, I only buy. So now I need to start working with a whole other set of vendors. After doing some research, here are what I feel are the biggest and busiest sites, next to fiverr. It shouldn’t be too hard to find more vendors to replace my existing ones.
Here are what I feel are the top sites like fiverr as of 3/1/2012, based soley on their – ALEXA rank.
- GigBucks.com – ALEXA RANK = 13,396
- Fourerr.com – ALEXA RANK = 24,006
- FiveSquids.co.uk – ALEXA RANK = 39,357
- FiversWorld.com – ALEXA RANK = 39,675
- Zeerk.com – ALEXA RANK = 44,343
- TenBux.com – ALEXA RANK = 44,762
- JobsFor10.com – ALEXA RANK = 72,649
- JustaFive.com – ALEXA RANK = 107,130
- Tenrr.com – ALEXA RANK = 119,355
- GigMe5.com – ALEXA RANK = 133,840
- GigBlasters.com – ALEXA RANK = 172,515
- Dollar3.com – ALEXA RANK = 193,535
I also like this site like fiverr, even though it’s not quite as popular. what sets this one apart is that they charge NO COMMISSION! Unlike fiverr, if you sell a gig for $5, you get to keep all $5 less any paypal fees of course.
- Deucerr.com – ALEXA RANK = 620,511
What About Micro Worker sites?
Another way to find vendors will be to put my job out for bids on micro worker sites. On those types of sites, vendors compete to get the best price and service for your specific gig. If you want to go down that route, here are some websites to checkout?
- Freelancer.com – ALEXA RANK = 370
- Odesk.com – ALEXA RANK = 503
- MicroWorkers.com – ALEXA RANK = 2,499
- ShortTask.com – ALEXA RANK = 40,186
- TaskRrmy.com – ALEXA RANK = 110,803
Hear from others who have had their accounts suspended from fiverr and read their stories about being banned here: fiverr sucks.
