What can you buy and sell on Depop?

Our community are curators of the kinds of fashion, accessories, art, books, records and trainers that you can’t find anywhere else. We love your creativity, but there are some things you can’t buy and sell on Depop.

We can’t let you buy or sell dangerous things on Depop - obviously! Dangerous things include:

  • Medicines and medical products.
  • Alcohol and tobacco products.
  • Drugs and drug related items.
  • Hazardous or flammable materials - like lighters and paints.

We respect creators at Depop, so we don’t allow anyone to sell counterfeit items on the app.



To make a copy of an existing item with the intent of tricking someone into believing the fake item is the same as the real item.

Eg, ‘These trainers have a fake Balenciaga logo, but they weren't made by Balenciaga - they’re counterfeit.’

For the same reason, we also don’t allow anyone to sell items that infringe on someone else’s copyright on the app. This includes things like:

  • Unauthorised or pirated copies - like pirated DVDs and bootleg recordings of concerts.
  • Unauthorised prints of artwork or photographs that don’t belong to you - this includes printing artwork and photos onto clothing and accessories.
  • Digital downloads of items where the seller doesn't own the copyright, such as e-books, films and TV shows. This includes selling codes to be used on other websites.

If you spot something that you think shouldn’t be sold on Depop, let us know here. A complete list of items that can’t be sold on Depop can be found here.
