How to change your location
Your location is set when you register your account and is determined according to the country from where you register.
The same applies to the phone verification process. If you verify your phone from a different location, the location may change after completing the verification process.
If the location on your account appears to be incorrect, please contact Customer Support.

The small circle by your username will indicate whether you're online (green circle) or offline (gray circle).
By default, your status will be set to "Online".
To change your status to "Offline":
- Log in > click your profile picture > Settings > Account.
- Under "ONLINE STATUS", you can select the amount of time you'll be "Offline" (1 hour, 1 day, 1 week, or Forever).
- Click Save Changes.
To go back online, select "GO ONLINE" from the same drop-down menu.
Remember: Your statistics are calculated based on the last 60 days of activity on your account only. This means that all orders 60 days or older are not taken into consideration when evaluating your performance.
For example: If you have three Completed Orders and one Cancelled Order, this brings your Order Completion Rate to 75%.
If one of those three Completed Orders exits the 60-day limit period, then you would technically have only two Completed Orders and one Cancelled Order—according to the Order Completion Rate statistic.
This effectively means that your rating will drop to 66%, without having any new orders, simply because one order has left the 60-day window.

Verifying my account
How to change your phone number
You don't need to have access to the old phone registered on your account, you only need to know the number. The code is sent to the new number being registered.
If you don’t remember your old phone number or your security question, please contact Customer Support.
To change your phone number:
- Log in > click your Profile Picture > My Settings > Phone Verification > Edit.
- Answer your security question > Provide your old phone number > Enter your new number.
- You'll then receive an SMS to the new phone number to verify your account. Add the
phone code to finalize the change.
Verifying your identity
To verify your identity:
- You will need to add a photo of an official government ID (driver’s license, passport, etc.) from a list of documents available to you—depending on your country of residence.
- After uploading your ID, you’ll be asked to take a selfie.
Your selfie and ID must match and belong to you in order to complete the process.
