    add up the total you get for each account in one month example 4 cuts a month = $420 x 15 accounts = $6300 like the guy above me said

    They'll pay that if there are contracts already signed.

    first off you need to have signed contracts to sell accounts. Next you sell them for 1 months gross income.
