Does Instagram allow the sale of personal profile accounts?

Instagram TOS (Terms of Service) states that the transfer of ownership is forbidden. In reality, those are only Instagram’s in-house rules, and there is nothing illegal about selling your social media account.

Why does FanPageCash purchase these accounts?

To keep it simple, we advertise our websites/content on them. We DO NOT spam links, we create relevant content that matches the Instagram account theme/niche. If we cannot advertise our content, we will generally resell the account for a small profit. We also use the accounts to spread news about a new company/brand.

What is my Instagram account worth?

It is very difficult to quote an Instagram account, so we can’t post any price charts. Many factors come into play such as the number of followers, activity, and niche. There are literary thousands of sites that sell fake Instagram followers, for that reason we go through extensive background checks before we make an offer. We can provide you a quote via e-mail if you fill out this short form, we usually reply within 12 hours.

How many followers should an Instagram account have for FPC to purchase it?

We don’t have a high limit for Instagram accounts, as long as they’re real and active, we will purchase any account. However, we prefer at least 30,000 followers.

My Instagram account is very stupid/silly, will it still qualify?

It doesn’t matter if your account is about memes, cats, or dogs. No matter how silly your Instagram account may seem, there may be a willing buyer for it. However, silly/humor related Instagram accounts are the most common type of properties, so their value will be lower.

How do we proceed with the transaction?

We pay, and you hand over the account, that’s it! For FanPageCash to pay first, you must own a PayPal account, other forms of payment would require you to hand over the Instagram account first. Since the burden of risk falls onto FPC, we might require identity verification from the seller. We have a lot of people taking advantage of our service (running after payment) so we must take precautions to protect our interests.
