    Its too rare in use and I used it for a very short time so I can't say anything with firm belief. But I think that looks a safe and reliable site. We can skip some personal information on it.

    Not trying to be a smartass but you ask for personal information in order to protect the privacy of your users? Sounds like having sex in order to protect your virginity...

    What types of personal information are being asked for here? If you're going to be a member of this forum, it's best to be transparent about your services.

    We have Instagram authorization, which enables the seller to prove they posted the shoutout, and for the customer to track their growth on a chart.

    Some of them have great engagement as well, 65k travel with 3-5k likes

    Hehe, no offense taken :p


    We require that every prospective influencer (vendor) gets vetted, before they can sell instagram shoutouts. Logging in with Instagram OAuth enables vendors to use our shoutout publishing app, and brands(customers) to measure the effect of their collaborative campaigns.

    Our company, based in Los Angeles, California, has been operating since June 2013.

    In the interest of transparency, I will disclose to you publicly that If you are an influencer(vendor) residing in the United States, we are required by the IRS to collect either your EIN or SSN, for reporting the amount earned with us when you file your taxes.

    We are similar to companies like Etsy, Fiverr, or Spreadshirt, in that anyone who lives in the same country where the company is doing business, must pay taxes applicable to their local tax code.

    Your information is kept under lock and key, stored securely on Adobe Echosign's severs. It's completely free to use and you don't have to download any software or even create an adobe account.

    Any information we "ask" if you, whether it's your Instagram password, or your SSN/EIN it actually gets handled by Instagram and Adobe, so even if our entire website gets hacked, your personal information never gets taken by thieves.

    Hope this helps clear things up!
