When you sell an item, Depop will automatically charge the 10% fee on the total transaction amount (including shipping costs). This charge will be taken directly from your PayPal account or the card you are using for payments before the remainder of the money you have made is paid to you.
- 10% Depop fee
- PayPal transaction fee of 2.9% + £0.30 in the UK and 2.9% + $0.30 in the USA
If you are in the USA and have added USPS shipping, this amount will also be taken.
Why does Depop charge 10%?
The 10% fee is in place to keep the app up and running, with general up-keep costs and to pay all of our employees, from engineers, to design, to our product team, and to us in the Support team that are writing this very article!
Unlike many other selling platforms, at Depop we only charge you when you make a sale, this means there are no fees for the length of time your item has been listed for or any initial costs to list the item, so list to your heart’s content because its all free!
