After the account is created, switch it from a normal account to a creator or a business account. If you need help making the switch, follow these steps.
You may have up to 5 Instagram accounts at a time, so it’s best not to use your personal Instagram account to sell feet pics.

You want people to know exactly what your Instagram is about just by looking at your handle. Most good Instagram handles are taken, so you have to get creative – try to keep it short, memorable, and also matches your brand.
For example, if you have small feet, you might want to name your handle @small_feet, and since it’s most likely taken, you can search for its synonyms and play around until you find one you’re happy with.

Instagram only allows one link in the bio section, but there is a way to go around it. By using a free tool Linktr.ee, you can connect multiple links to different referral sites, payment methods, promotional material, and more in just one link.

A large number of posts might mean lots of people follow that hashtag, but it also means your post might get lost in a sea of posts. Instagram suggests combining hashtags with different levels of popularity to reach different audiences, from broad to specific.
Instagram allows a total of 30 hashtags for posts and reels and 10 hashtags for stories. Although you might assume the more hashtags you include in a post the better, that’s not necessarily the best practice.
There is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to hashtags. The most common number of hashtags to use on Instagram is between 3 and 5 according to 18M posts. You can start out with 3 to 5 targeted hashtags to test it out and adjust accordingly.
How To Set Up Payments On Instagram?
There are many ways to get paid for your feet pics on Instagram. Since Meta (formerly Facebook) is the parent company of Instagram, the obvious method would be to use Meta Pay. The service is easy, secure, and a quick way to get paid for your feet pics.
However, this method of payment is currently only available in certain parts of the world. Check for availability here.
Here are some other ways you can get paid for feet pics on Instagram:
PayPal is my #1 go-to payment system for online transactions and I have been using it since 2012. It’s completely free and very easy to use.
This short 2-min YouTube tutorial video below will show you how to set up a clickable PayPal link on your profile so you can start receiving payment!
Owned by PayPal, Venmo enables users to quickly send and receive money. Venmo is currently only supported within the U.S.
There are three different ways to add your Venmo link to your Instagram:
- Sharing personal QR code
- Posting a direct link in bio
- Using deep-app link
Whichever method you choose to add Venmo to your Instagram, this article will walk you through the step-by-step for each one.
Zelle is a payments network that lets you send or receive money from your bank account to someone else’s bank account. It is free to use and is currently only available in the US.
All you need is a checking account to get started. If your bank offers Zelle, then you already have it in your mobile banking app or online banking. But, even if you don’t have Zelle available through your bank or credit union, you can still use it by downloading the Zelle app and enrolling an eligible Visa or Mastercard debit card.
4. Cash App
Cash App was created in 2013 by Block (formerly Square) to compete with Venmo and PayPal. It is a peer-to-peer payment service that only requires a unique username to send/receive money.
Additionally, you can use the app to receive payment in Bitcoin and even trade Bitcoin on its platform.
Benefits of Selling Feet Pics On Instagram
Instagram is the 7th most visited website and is the 2nd most downloaded app in the world with 2.9B+ monthly visitors, making it one of the most popular social sites.
Additionally, with the introduction of Instagram Shopping, the site is well suited for creators. Instagram Shopping is a set of features across Instagram that let people shop for your photos, videos, and anything feet related.
Most importantly, it is free to use and a great platform to build a following while you grow your business.
How To Sell Feet Pics Without Getting Scammed On Instagram?
As with most online interactions, you can get scammed if you’re not careful. You never think it can happen to you, but it can.
A friend of mine almost got involved in a romance scam not too long ago. Luckily, I saw all the obvious red flags right away and had no doubt in my mind this person was a scammer. Despite my repeated warnings, she continued to stay in contact and promised to be careful…until he asked for money. If she wasn’t made aware right from the beginning, she would have believed his sob story.
Here is what I find shocking, according to a report from the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), millennials are more vulnerable to online scams than seniors. The research finds that “40 percent of adults age 20-29 who have reported fraud ended up losing money in a fraud case”.
Always be careful with online interactions and here are a few ways to help you stay alert:
- Never provide more than necessary payment information. For example, if you use PayPal, you only need an email address.
- Never provide any personal information. It might feel like you know a repeat customer, but this is also a way for them to get you to trust them. My friend’s scammer never mentioned any money until almost two months after their first online encounter.
- Create an Instagram Business account and a separate email address to remain anonymous.
- Avoid geotags as it pinpoints your current location and might give away your place of residence.
- Keep it professional. Don’t let it turn into something else.
- As always, trust your gut.
