The popular online gig marketplace Fiverr.com is a good place to sell online products and services. If you haven't logged into your seller account for awhile, or if you're logging in from a new device, Fiverr will use a verification method to make sure it's really you.
It will say something along the lines of:
Looks Like You're Trying To Log In From a New Device
Just to make sure it’s you, choose how you would like to verify your device
One of the verification methods you can select is via email. If you picked email, then Fiverr will send an email containing a verification code to the email address they have on file for you. Don't panic if you haven't received the email yet! Based on our experiences testing it out, it seems that there is a big variation of how long it takes to get the verification email from Fiverr.
OK, but how long in minutes should it take?
It will take anywhere between 0 to 15 minutes for the Fiverr verification email code to arrive in your inbox, based on our tests. There are many things that can affect how long it takes to get there, and this includes things that are out of Fiverr's control, such as your email provider, and so on.
What you should do if you don't get the Fiverr verification email right away
Wait at least 15 minutes before doing anything. Fix yourself a cup of coffee. Don't panic! And do NOT be tempted to request a re-send until you've waited at least the 15 minutes. This is because if you request a re-send, then the first code they send won't work anymore, and you'll have to wait for the second one to arrive. If they take 15 minutes each, you will need to wait a total of around 30 minutes to get a functional code. And longer if you request more re-sends! So just sit tight and wait 15 minutes.
What to do if you don't get the Fiverr verification code in your inbox after 15 minutes
Suppose you've waited the full 15 minutes and you still don't see the email. First, check your spam folder because it might have gone there. If it's not in spam, you could try requesting the code to be re-sent, but then you'll have to wait another 15 minutes.
Finally, you might want to start over and pick a different verification option. Besides email, they also offer text message verification and Fiverr notification. For the Fiverr notification, you need to be already logged in from another device or on the Fiverr app for this.
Fiverr also gives you the option to request assistance, so if you're completely stuck you can try that.
It can take some time for a Fiverr verification code to arrive by email. Start by being patient. If after 15 minutes you still haven't received your code, you may want to start over and pick a different verification method.
Fiverr isn't the only way to make money online. Here is how to set up a social network for less than a cup of coffee a month, no coding required. You could place ads on your new network to earn money that way.
