Selling on Depop!
3 tips for making your first sale
Ready to sell on Depop? Here are our top three tips for selling your first item.
- Use your best photos
Clear, high-quality photos will help your item stand out on the grid.
Shoot in a square format so your photos are sized right.
Make sure your shot is well lit and clearly shows the condition and details of your item. Natural light is best.
Shooting flat lays? Hanger shots? Whatever your style, experiment with different background fabrics and textures to bring your shot to life.
Use all 4 photo slots – show your item from different angles and/or different ways to style your item.
- Write an accurate item description
An accurate and detailed item description helps us match your item to buyer searches.
Describe your item clearly and accurately. Think about what a buyer might search for to find an item like yours.
Add measurements to let buyers know how the item fits.
Describe the condition of the item, noting any flaws or signs of wear.
Make sure you add all relevant item info and tags, including:
Category and subcategory
Quantity (if applicable)
Colour. You can select up to two colours.
Style, including Source, Age and Style.
- Price it right
The right price is based on several things, including the brand and condition of your item.
We recommend pricing your item based on similar items currently for sale on Depop. Try searching for items like yours to get an idea.
Make sure the price reflects the item condition. Buyers probably won’t expect to pay the same for a very worn item as a brand new one.
Open to offers? Let buyers know by making sure it’s turned on in your shop policies. In the app, go to Selling > Policies > Make me offers.
Consider offering free shipping. Items with free shipping are twice as likely to sell.
