Instagram Verified Badge For Sale: Read This Before You Buy

Instagram Verified Badge can cost anywhere from $5k to $25k.

Verified badges can come with tens and even hundreds of thousands of followers. Generally, the more followers, the more you will have to pay to get the badge.

A seller can send you a DM from an Instagram account that has a verified badge to prove its ownership before you buy it.

Please be aware that most such accounts have been hacked and stolen. The seller may restore access to the account with a verified badge once you buy it, and you will lose the badge and money altogether.
