I bought around 20k followers for our business from this website - but just wondering if I should do it again as I am not sure if it is against Instagram tos.

 

Couldn't find anything online regarding this to be honest.

Hi @Mariogoo,

 

I would advise against buying Instagram followers, it does in fact violate Instagram's terms of service:

 

"You can't attempt to buy, sell, or transfer any aspect of your account (including your username) or solicit, collect, or use login credentials or badges of other users." + "You can't do anything unlawful, misleading, or fraudulent or for an illegal or unauthorized purpose." (source)

 

Some additional resources:

The first post outlines some alternatives to buying and you can also find some nice strategies in this Quora thread.

 

Hope this helps!
