On Thursday, January 5, 2023 the transaction fee that is charged for every sale that is made through Depop Payments in the US will be increased. We wanted to outline how these changes may affect you as a seller.
What are the changes?
From January 5, we will increase the transaction fee that is taken in addition to our 10% Depop fee. This means instead of being charged 2.9% + $0.30, you will now be charged 3.3% + $0.45 in transaction fees, plus the 10% Depop fee, when you sell an item through Depop Payments.
The transaction fee for PayPal transactions remains 3.49% + $0.49.
What is a transaction fee?
Transaction fees are charged on all sales. They cover the cost of processing a buyer’s payment. This fee is separate from the 10% Depop fee.
Why are we doing this?
Card companies have increased the fees they charge Depop for processing payments. While we’ve kept our payment processing fee the same since introducing Depop payments, it’s become increasingly more expensive to process payments. For this reason, we are increasing the transaction fee in the US.
Below is a breakdown of the fees you would pay on an item sold for $40 through Depop Payments:
|US fees||Example $40 sale|
|Depop Payments transaction fee||3.3% + $0.45||$1.77|
|Depop balance (amount paid to you)||$34.23 ($40 minus $5.77)|
