A guide to using Depop



Depop, a recognisable logo? Pretty much every girl will have this app somewhere hidden on their phone and if you don't make use of it, START DOING IT.

If you're a uni student like me that can't really afford the latest clothes once back at uni and trying to survive off your non existent student loan, then Depop is the place for you. 


So I wanted to give you a lil guide (this is not sponsored I just love this app). Its perfect if you're bored this summer, got no part time job and need to sell a dozen of clothes. You can become a lil business woman over night.

You can find pretty much anything you want both second hand and brand new, ranging from clothes, makeup, jewellery, probably even a bed. You can use the filters to find certain brands and labels, sizes or female and male clothing. The possibilities are endless. 

So if you're alien to this app, then download it and see what the fuss is about. Registration is free and you need to make a Pay pal account which is also free.

HOWEVER, when you sell through Pay pal they deduct 10%, so be mindful of that and what prices you charge things for.

P&P, make sure to include in your bio the cost of postage and packaging. If you do this for free then that is up to you but it usually costs £2.85 to send a parcel, that's depending on how heavy it is.

Reviews, these are important to fill out, every time someone purchases an item from you they will rate your service and you can do the same to them for buying your stuff so IE how they spoke to you. The more reviews you have the more people will look at your page.

Photos, take clear photos, close up on certain features

Don't:

Claim something is from Topshop when its Primarni
Not post the item and take the money
Not say if something is ripped or stained 

It's a fun app to use and you can earn from all your old clothes! Life can be good ay

Let me know if you use Depop, I am currently selling a load of old stuff over on mine @ella688 so be sure to check that out!
