    So I'm looking for an Instagram account in the "teen" or "girly" niche with between 15K - 50K followers. I'll be posting in the WTB section in a few days but just want to ask about the process of buying.

    I think I read on here instead of PayPal to use Eschrow . com?


    Obviously I'll be checking out the account before I buy making sure there's enough likes on all the pics for the follower count. I'll also be checking to make sure the likes and comments are from real people in my niche. Anything else?

    As for aged, if I don't plan on using a bot or following a lot of people does it really matter?


    I have a fair amount to spend but I can only afford to buy one account once and really want to make sure I get the best account I can.


    Thanks!

    For accounts both paypal and escrow are safe . As paypal do have its 45 days refund policy seller cant easily scam you ! but always do buisness with some reputed ones or if you are trying with someone new always try to test 1 or 2 before buying .

    Before buying an account I usually buy a sponsored post first. From there I'll be able to tell if the data that I've gathered earlier about the account is true or not. If the numbers are good, then I use paypal. I never had any issues doing this because I do a ton of research before buying an account. I even go as far as stalking him/her on facebook, lol.

    Where do you buy your accounts? I'm looking to buy one (preferably in the fashion accessories niche) with between 10k and 50k followers. Any suggestions?

    Paypal doesnot offer protection to intangible goods. So Please prefer other ones

    definitely go with escrow, paypal can be tricky sometimes when it's about intangible goods and if the seller uses a burn paypal account, meaning he gets the money withdraws it and never uses it again good luck getting it back..

    Thanks! Yeah I think I'll do Escrow. It seems to be the safest bet and I do plan on using reputed sellers.

    Thanks! Good idea about buying the sponsored post. That should give me an even better insight than just looking at the data on their regular posts.

    Can I ask what you think the numbers should be in terms of engagement with the accounts?

    I'd say for a 15K - 25K account --
    Each photo 800 - 1200 + likes.
    Maybe like 30 - 50 comments
    I can gain 50ish followers with a shoutout

    25K - 40K Account
    1200 - 3,000 + likes
    50 - 150 comments
    Gain 100 - 200 followers a shoutout

    40K - 50K + Account
    3,000 + likes
    200 + comments
    Gain 200ish followers a shoutout

    Do those numbers seem about right?

    I would use escrow. It's always my first choice when purchasing something valuable.
