    Was thinking of investing in to the development of an online marketplace that would allow the listing and selling of InstaGram pages. It would be similar to Flippa but for IG pages only, sellers would have to verify ownership of the pages before their listing goes live and the auction would automatically grab data such as "average likes per picture" & "average daily/monthly growth" and display it to potential buyers.

    Let me know what your thoughts are, personally, I think it's a good idea but wanted to hear some input from you guys.

    Honestly there are good ideas everywhere, it's all about execution and how you market it.

    Good luck out there.

    Verifying the owner and all the statistics is good, but that's not the main problem with selling accounts. It's the payments imo.

    You have to stand as a middle man (like Flippa does with escrow.com) and offer people secure payments. Sellers don't want to get chargebacks after selling their account.

    I have understood that Instagram is not allowing selling of accounts so public marketplace could be too risky for account owners.

    That too, I forgot. It's against the ToS of Instagram to sell accounts.
