Photographs are the DNA of Depop. This is why we ask for all the photos you use on your Depop shop are original, and not lifted from an online source. Googling your item to find a stock image to use on your shop is potentially misleading, and has been proven to deter people from your shop.
Stock images and other photos from websites actually belong to the original photographer, so using them to advertise your sales is an infringement of property rights, which is why we do not allow it.
Only use photos taken by yourself - don’t be afraid to get creative and show off your personality. Great photos are an awesome way to get noticed on the app and you might even be featured on the Explore page.
