Depop Payments

In the UK you will always be paid through Depop Payments. These payments will be paid directly into the bank account you link to Depop.

How do I get set up?

  1. Go to Selling Hub > Payments and scroll down to Payments Settings  
  2. Connect your bank account
  3. Add your ID to verify your account. You must be 18 or over to have a Stripe account so, if you are under 18, you can simply add a parent or guardian ID instead.

When are payouts processed?

Once a buyer purchases from you via Depop Payments the money goes straight to your balance, which you can see in the Payments section of your Selling Hub in app.

Your payout will then be initiated to your linked bank account 10 working days after the sale date. You might see a 2-3 day difference in processing times depending on your bank.

I haven't received my payout

You should be able to see your upcoming payouts in your Depop Balance. If you're waiting for a payment that seems overdue, check the following:

      1. Go to Selling Hub > Payments and scroll down to Payments Settings  
      2. See whether you need to add any information to verify your account
      3. Looks fine? Tap your Seller_Hub.png > Payments > Review your Next Payout and Latest Transactions
      4. If you have refunded any sales recently, they may have been deducted directly from your Depop balance
      5. Still unsure? Contact Support

Selling safely on Depop

To sell safely on Depop, the 3 most important things to remember are: 

  • Only ever sell items directly through the Depop app or When you sell an item through Depop, you’ll automatically receive both an email from Depop and a notification in-app (via the :bell: icon in the top left corner of your profile page). You don’t need to take any further action to complete the sale. 
  • Never give out your personal information (i.e. email, phone number, card details or social media handles) to anyone on Depop. If someone sends you a message asking for your personal information, they may be trying to lead you off Depop, which could put you at risk. Depop will never ask you to confirm your personal details to complete a sale.
  • Once you've sent the item, make sure to add the tracking number to your in-app receipt. If you've chosen to use a Depop shipping label, this will update automatically.

What should I avoid? 

  • Never give out any personal information to anyone on Depop - this includes your email, phone number, card details or personal social media
  • Don’t arrange in-person sales or collections
  • Never click on any links that you are sent by another user, within or outside of the app
  • Avoid entering your contact information in Bio or Listings
  • Don’t take payment outside of Depop’s checkout system - payment methods such as bank transfers, direct PayPal payments, Vemno or cash are unsafe, against terms and could leave you out of pocket
  • Avoid contacting any users outside of Depop - if anything goes wrong we may not be able to take any action
  • Don’t sell prohibited items - if you sell items on our prohibited items list, you won’t be eligible for Depop Protection. See our Terms of Service for full details

What else should I know? 

  • Describe and take accurate photos of the items you list
  • Use the address in your Depop sales receipt to ship your item
  • Keep your proof of shipping receipt or take a photo

To contact the Depop Support team, submit a request on our Help Centre. Depop does not currently offer customer service via chatbot.
