Here is a problem I encountered recently and have not found a solution. This might affect people buying Instagram accounts.
The first question I see is “Can you send me the stats by PM?”…
The problem with buying an Instagram account that can display the stats is that it needs to be switched to a business account for stats to show. For this, it has to be linked to a Facebook fanpage.
The person that buys the Instagram account will have problems linking it to one of their own fanpages because even if you unlink it from the current one, when you link it to another-one you get the error “this Instagram account is already linked to a facebook page”.
I don’t think many here are aware of this glitch. It has many people frustrated on the Facebook forums. So if the owner of the Instagram account you’re about to buy sends you screenshots of the stats, then it’s already linked to a fanpage and you will encounter this problem for your new business. You might as well ask to buy both the Instagram account and the fanpage it’s linked to as a package.
