Shipping Guide - US

If you’re a US seller, you have 2 shipping options: 

  1. Depop Shipping: Use Depop’s shipping label via USPS. Once you’ve made a sale you can simply download the QR code, find a convenient drop off location near you and enjoy the fully tracked service (mainland USA only). 
  2. Other: Arrange tracked shipping yourself through a third party service. 

Note: Some users may only see the Depop Shipping method on their profile. This change is part of Depop's efforts to enhance the overall experience for both buyers and sellers.
