Depop, which was founded in 2011, is the ideal fashion marketplace for any style, with over 21 million members and a diverse selection of used clothing. Consider it a cross between eBay and Instagram. It’s evolved into a social-selling platform – it’s youthful, trendy, and mostly concerned with your following.
Users may follow their favorite accounts, view trending items on the explore tab, and include hashtags in their posts to obtain greater visibility (like Instagram).. Simply set up an account and list your stuff for free. You may upload up to four images, provide a brief description of the object (size, condition, etc.)
Depop takes 10 per cent of the profit for each item
Vinted (established in 2012) is yet another fantastic online marketplace for selling, buying, and trading apparel and accessories.

When your live listing sells, all you have to do is print the pre-paid shipping label and carry it to your local drop off location within five days. After the buyer receives their package, you will be compensated. List, sell, and post while waiting for payment.
