Why is Depop being acquired by Etsy?
We’re really excited to become part of the Etsy family. We believe Etsy can really help us continue to build an even richer and safer experience for our community, to enable more and more people to buy, discover and explore the incredible fashion already on Depop. The reason Etsy was interested in having Depop join their family is because they recognize what an amazing community and brand we have built, and they want to support us in the next phase of our journey.
Depop will continue to operate as a standalone marketplace with the same brand, same app, and same team as we have now. For more information, please visit our Depop Newsroom.
Is Depop being rebranded as Etsy or some other name?
The Depop brand stands for something special and powerful, and that’s a testament to all of your hard work to make Depop what it is today. There are no plans to change it: Depop will operate as a standalone marketplace, under the same brand and team.
I am a seller on both Etsy and Depop. Will my accounts be merged?

Will my shop be moved over to Etsy?

What actions do I need to take?

Will Depop’s policies change?
