Depop introduced verified badges (the small blue tick on top of a profile image) to reduce the risk of impersonation on the platform. We give these badges to Top Sellers, brands, Community Leaders*, celebrities and public figures** our team have verified as authentic and trustworthy.
We do this to keep Depop a safe marketplace where you know who you’re doing business with.
**Top Sellers are the sellers who we identify as the most trustworthy and engaged sellers in the Depop community. In order to qualify to be a Depop Top Seller, you need to be a seller who either: Sell 50+ items at an average price of £15+ (~$20) per month for 4 consecutive months OR have sold items totalling £2000+ (~$2600+) each month for 4 consecutive months. Provide a great customer experience for your buyers and maintain an average rating of at least 4.5 stars. Be a champion seller with a great track record, and make sure there aren’t any recent infringements on your account.
*Community Leaders are a small team of trusted and experienced Depop users who work very closely with Depop to help grow, guide and educate our Community. Verified Community Leaders pro-actively reach out to members of the Community to communicate on behalf of Depop and with this, we feel it is important to highlight these users with a verified badge - as a sign of them being a trusted figure within our Community.
At this time, verified badges are given to accounts our team has identified as high-risk for impersonation, and can not be applied for. Verified badges can be lost if an account infringes on our Terms of Service!
