Do I need to use PayPal?

If you are a seller who is located outside of the US/UK, you need to connect your PayPal account as PayPal is the only payment method upon checkout outside of the US/UK. 

If you are a seller who is located in the US/UK you need to sign-up to Depop Payments instead of PayPal in order to list and sell.

If you use PayPal checkout on Depop as a buyer you are automatically covered by PayPal Buyer Protection.

If you are located outside of the US/UK and you are considering selling on Depop, you will need a PayPal account in order to list and sell.

  • You need a verified and not restricted PayPal account
  • If you are under 18, you will need to get a parent or guardian's permission to use their PayPal

Buyer - I don't have a PayPal account

If you are a buyer and purchase from a seller that offers PayPal as a payment option we’d also suggest creating a PayPal account so you can view any purchases you made through PayPal more easily.

  • You do not need a PayPal account to buy on Depop but it’s easier to keep track of your purchases if you have one
  • You can check out via PayPal guest checkout or Depop Payments (if your seller is in the US/UK)
  • You can use your PayPal balance to check out on Depop
