Are you wondering, how to change your Fiverr username?
If yes, in this article, I am going to show you the best approach you can take to change your Fiverr username.
In addition to that, I have also mentioned some of the disadvantages of changing your Fiverr username.
So make sure to read this entire article before taking any action.
Let’s get started.
Can you change Fiverr username?
Fiverr username cannot be changed. You can only change your full name and email address associated with your account.
However, you can delete your account and create a fresh one with a different username.
Also if you want to use the same email address then make sure to change your email address in your current account.
With that being said, here are the steps to close your current account in a proper way.
- Inside your Fiverr account, click on your profile picture in the top right corner and click settings
- In the accounts section, Scroll down to the bottom of the page and choose, “I want to change my username” in the account deactivation section.
- Now create a new account with your desired username.
P.S. As mentioned earlier, if you want to use the same email address for your new account, make sure to change it in the current account before closing it.
Disadvantages of the above method:
- If you are a seller, you would lose all your old Fiverr Gigs
- Your active orders in your old account will be lost
- You won’t be able to reactive your Gigs
- You may not be able to find your past orders (Maybe Fiverr can help, but you may have to check with the support team)

Why should you not change your Fiverr username?
You should not change your Fiverr username for a couple of below reasons:
- You may lose your loyal and returning customers because now you will have a different name and they cannot identify you.
- You will lose your Gigs along with the optimized, headline, description and valuable reviews on them.
- You will have to set up a new account which is a massive waste of time.
What is the best way to change your Fiverr username?
The best way is to create a new account with a different username and then let your existing customers know about your new account.
Next, recreate all your Gigs in your new account. Now you go and deactivate your old account by choosing the “I have another Fiverr account” option under the account deactivation section.
This way you use your old Fiverr account Gigs as a reference while recreating in your new account and also retain your existing customers.
If you are changing your Fiverr username just because you don’t like it, then it’s not a good idea.
In case of any other reason, I would still suggest you think about the pros and cons before deciding to deactivate your account.
