Download the app and sign up
You will first need to download the Depop app in the Apple App Store or Google Play store for Android users. It’s compatible with all iOS 6 and newer devices, and all Android 4.0 and newer devices. Then sign up for an account; you can do this with your Facebook account or with email.
Complete your profile
Once you have signed up you will get your own profile page, which in a way acts as your storefront. Make sure to add a picture of yourself and fill out the profile, both of which will help to increase trust amongst potential customers.
List your items
You can list items you want to sell through your profile page. Make sure to include images, the price, postage costs, and a title and description for each item.
Sell inside the app
Depop makes it easy to complete the entire sale process via the Depop app, so there’s no need to move to a laptop or desktop computer.
Clothes, shoes and make-up are popular categories, and you’ll find many fashion bloggers use Depop to sell off the samples and free clothes they receive. You can also sell other items like art, books, records, etc. So whatever unwanted items you find hiding at the back of your wardrobe, they’re most likely worth selling on Depop. What can’t you sell? Depop has a small list of prohibited items which can’t be sold such as used cosmetics and make-up.
As the Depop app is free to download and there’s no fee to list items for sale, however when you’ve made a sale Depop will take a 10% commission (including shipping costs). The way you choose to receive payment can also incur charges. There are two choices: Classic has a 3.4% + £0.20 PayPal transaction fee (varies by country), while Wallet has a 2.5% transaction fee (minimum fee £0.50) and no PayPal fees.
The two payment methods accepted on Depop are Classic and Wallet (check fees above). Accepting payments outside the app through bank transfers is not allowed.
The “Classic” option needs you to have a PayPal account and you will need to link this to your Depop account too. When you make a sale the money will be transferred directly to your PayPal account.
The “Wallet” option is a secure place Depop has created in the app to manage your money, through which you can pay out to your bank account or store up any sale proceeds to buy items on Depop yourself. This payment method is only available to selected UK sellers, but it will soon be available to everyone. You can sign up now to get on the waiting list.
