The social media giant has now introduced subscriptions in Turkey and announced their prices in TL.
According to news from ShiftDelete; Onlyfans’ subscription-based content system has inspired other social media platforms. Last year, Twitter launched donation-based Super Follow across the world, including Turkey. This system, which creates a new revenue model for content producers, has finally arrived on the Instagram app.
SUBSCRIPTION PRICE UP TO 85 TL
Instagram has made a change to its App Store page in Turkey. In the In-App Purchases section ‘Instagram Followers 77’ and ‘Instagram Followers 194’ It lists several in-app purchase options, such as: 77 and 194 here do not represent subscription prices.
Although the “meaning” of the numbers is not known, the subscription prices determined for Instagram Turkey are as follows:

Although there are currently two prices, creators will be able to offer subscriptions to their subscribers for any amount within these price ranges. For example, in some Turkish accounts where the system is active, you can see that the subscription fee is 66.99 TL. The social media company gives the initiative to the content producer at this point.
You can start following by clicking Follow next to or below/above the Follow button on a profile. If the button is not visible, it means that he has not yet activated the feature in his account.
WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF THE SUBSCRIPTION?
