You have to be aged 13 or older to sign up to Depop.
What about PayPal?
You need to be 18, or the legal contract age in your country, to create a PayPal account. The age restrictions are due to the fact that when you open a PayPal account, you are agreeing to their legally binding contract.
All Depop purchases are powered by PayPal, which means you need to connect a PayPal account to Depop before you can sell items. All purchases also go through PayPal, whether the payment is made with PayPal balance or payment card.
If you’re not 18, but would like to sell or buy items through Depop we always ask you to talk to your parent or guardian. Don’t forget that using anyone’s PayPal account or payment card without permission is illegal.
