    Sorry for the newb question- but when you're selling shoutouts, how do you collect the money from the buyer? I was just thinking of giving my paypal email to them, can I do this with a personal paypal account?
    Also, is it safe to discuss prices/give paypal through IG dm or should I just direct them to my email?
    I just reached 10k and I had 1 account and a couple small business interested, I was thinking $5 for the personal account and $20 for business shoutouts, for 24 hours? How does that sound?
    Thanks in advance!

    I've bought many shoutouts and there always through PayPal. If the account is growing just be sure that you don't post so many spammy ads bc you'll lose followers

    Try to do most over email, so you have a record unlike DMs which can be deleted.
    And yeah personal paypal is fine.

    For your prices, it's roughly $10 per 1000 likes, so keep that in mind.

    Paypal! Btc is another option but most people don't have that.

    Paypal.me/YourName is something paypal set up last year.

    Once set up they can easily send payment by just going to your custom page.

    I like it anyway...
