    Hello, I'm currently growing a bunch of Ig accounts and in the future I want to sell some shoutouts. I know that most of the people are using Kik as an anonymous messenger.

    Talking about privacy, how does the payment process work? Is everyone using PayPal? How exactly is this working? And your customers are able to see your real data, right? Even if you are running a business account afaik.

    How are you guys dealing with it?

    Thank you.

    You can put your kik on instagram bio, so when they want to buy shoutout they pay to your paypal account, you don't need to put your full name if you want to make privacy.
    You can also use shoutouts selling sites, it bring you more costumers and more money
    Good luck

    Thanks for your reply. Do you really think that shoutout sites are generating better income? I have problems believing that statement.

    What websites do you recommend? I signed up for shoutcart a couple days ago and recieved one order (it takes forever to withdraw your money too) but that's just not enough.

    There are many sites for buying and selling shoutouts, you can use shoutoutzoo or featurehub. there's a new site also for trading shoutouts it's called shoutoutpost

    Put your business email in your bio, companies will reach out to you directly if you have lots of followers

    If someone is paying me via PayPal, are you sure there is no way they can see my personal info?

    If you really wanted to add more value you can always push to link to a marketplace or another freelancing portal so you don't have to process everything by hand.

    Yes Shoutouts sell good, they're like hot cakes once you are done growing. I've seen people sell a couple dozen $5-$15 tweets / shoutouts every day.

    With Instagram you charge people by the hour if you do it by hand so you can always leverage more doing it that way... Otherwise always have at least a profile somewhere so it's easier to track; doing it by hand always will work too (Via KiK Messaging.)

    As per your above question, try using a business / premier account :) ...

    Thanks for your reply. I have a business account. But I'm a 1-Man-Company so I don't know if there is a way they can get me identity?

    I wouldn't worry too much about your identity.. If it's that big of a deal, you can change your name on PayPal so they can't see what your real name is. Once they send the funds it will say "You have send $XX to ABCD"

    Using kik, and being enrolled in shoutout sites is a good mix of ways to get good cash flow.

    One of the best and oldest shoutout network sites is IG Shoutouts > https://www.igshoutouts.com
