    If I were to sell my IG accounts via PayPal, how should I do it properly?

    Since IG accounts (digital goods) are not eligible for seller protection, it's very unlikely that I will get my money back if a buyer decides to file a false charge back claim.

    I'm planning on start selling accounts soon, so far this is my biggest worry as I have been scammed before selling other stuff. :alien:

    Get paid via western union or moneygram better that way you receive the money in cash and the buyer won't cancel on you or try to scam you and ofc there have to be a trust between you too and buyer must pay in advance, good luck.

    You can create paypal invoice and send it to your client, once you develop the terms for your transaction you will be safe.

    Why do people think this will help them.
    You can write that the invoice is for an already provided service with no refund option etc etc. It will not help you if someone chargebacks. You agreed to paypal TOS when signing up and that is the only thing taken into consideration when doing a chargeback.

    Dear it depends on which type of claim you are dealing with.

    There 3 types:

    Unauthorized Payment
    Goods not received
    The client calls his Credit card company to chargeback - No way around it.

    Maybe you weren't so lucky when creating your invoices. Keep in mind that at the moment that your customer filled a form and agreed to your TOS before placing his order - you are 100% safe. For creating those kinds of TOS forms you can use wufoo.com and integrate into your paypal account.
    your client will tick a box before purchasing your product - you can use it as evidence once a chargeback was created.

    Of course, if the rep who handles the case choose the client side you have nothing to do with it because you agreed to the TOS, however - your chances to win are 90% .

    I hope it helps.

    Offer crypto as a payment type with a 5-10% discount. It only costs you 2-7% since you're not paying credit card fees.

    Whatever you do, do not go through escrow on fameswap. I got scammed by the actual escrow person through the website! So so shit. I did a whole post on it a while back on here. Got scammed over a $1000. I was selling my account.

    If the buyer charges back through PayPal, then you charge your account back through Instagram or complain of being hacked.

    If it ain't bitcoin or western union, then I don't want it UNLESS we've been doing business for a while.
    You'll get a buyer. More and more people are going use to cryptocurrency. My last transactions have been western union and bitcoin
