Buying safely on Depop

Staying safe whilst buying on Depop

Depop is a totally unique shopping experience, and to keep that experience as stress-free as possible it’s vital that you keep your purchases in-app. When you buy in-app, you’re covered by Buyer Protection. This means that if an item doesn’t arrive, isn’t as described, or if you buy a bundle and some items are missing, we will get your money back.

Making sure you’re covered

So long as you make your purchases by using our ‘BUY’ button within the app, and report any issues within 180 days, you’re protected. We can’t help you if you send money outside the app without using the button. And to stay safe you should never meet up in person to make a purchase. Remember, private sellers aren’t required by law to offer refunds, so be sure to check their returns policy before checking out.
