    I've found a niche audience that I think would be very interested in buying facebook likes, twitter fans and youtube views but as I'm in no position to be offering these services to them (don't know how to do it and don't own any software that can) I was planning to outsource the work on fiverr. I'd charge my customers $10 and pay someone on fiverr the $5, easy profit and nothing new in the method.

    The issue I'm having is where I should take payment for the service. Initially considered ODesk or one of the other freelancer sites but either already use them for other business stuff or plan to use them in the future and don't want to jeopardise my feedback and reputation on them. Then I thought about ebay but I'm not convinced people want to buy social media '+1s' from there and again my feedback could be affected and I use it for various things. The reason I'm a bit cautious about using these places is because I have no control over the service I'm offering and if the fiverr gig causes the customers accounts to get banned it reflects badly on me.

    So keeping in mind these concerns what would be the best way for me to take payment?

    Thanks.

    I highly recommend WePay and I don't work for them lol. I actually started using it on my website about a week ago. The only limit is you can only take transactions up to 2000 and same with transferring. But you can transfer 2000$ increments as many times as you want in a day. They don't freeze accounts the list goes on. Keep in mind I have only been using this a week and grilled the chat support last night with all the scandalous merchant behavior questions!

    I haven't heard of them and I'm guessing neither will any of my customers so they may not be keen to send money through some unknown payment processor. I will have a look into them though, thanks for the suggestion.

    OP: Why are you not choosing Paypal..its easier to throw in the code on your website..or even drive the people to Paypal straight.

    Good ? I used to do 30k a month through paypal. Paypal is a beast they do what they want. They almost crashed my business. Orders got rolling got really big and then they froze all my account for a review that lasted 3 weeks. No money for 3 weeks!!! Then they decided they would keep a percentage of my earnings for a just incase escrow fund. Customers have the upper hand and can be very scandalous as well no matter how much proof you have in a dispute your still going to lose. Paypal is the Devil Google paypal problems and you will find lots of details about there scandalous behavior to freeze large accounts to earn interest off of them. Sorry for the rant.

    If I end up with some angry customers because the fiverr gigs get them banned from Twitter and Facebook can they do chargebacks / refunds and file complaints against me on Paypal that could cause my account to get limited or banned? I want to avoid that if possible as it's such a vital tool for so many aspects of internet money making and transactions that I want to keep my account active.

    Absolutely yes! See Paypal has the right at anytime to decide they don't want you as a customer. Its all based on what Paypal wants to do. If you get to many charge backs in a month or if the same complaint becomes a common theme they will close your account and hold any funds in it for 90 days in order to fulfill any refunds or charge backs you have during that time. Also Wepay called me an hour ago and gave me a free credit card portal. So I can take cards over the phone now lol. Didn't do a credit check nothing asked how it was going and if I was interested. Sounds too good to be true but I will ride the wave for now. Let me know if you have any other questions!

    How easy is it to add an option to pay through paypal to a website? I looked at the Paypal help section but it was confusing and not really answering my question. It just gave me options about setting up e-commerce stores on my site which I don't think is what I want to do?

    Just so you know eBay doesn't allow selling of social media gigs. For example likes, follows, and pluses.

    Yeah I am aware, people get round it by also offering something tangible such as a print out detailing what you've done.

    I'm having a problem. I manually added 450 followers to my new twitter account and the account was suspended because I followed too many people. I've been able to reactivate it but have been warned to follow the terms and conditions and not follow so many people.

    If I can't manually add a few hundred followers without a suspension how can these fiverr sellers get thousands of followers to accounts within 24hrs no problem?

    You used a new account which raises flags. Most the sellers on fiverr have thousands of fake accounts and just follow their buyers account.
