If you want to sell or buy a variety of goods online, eBay is probably the most popular place to go. But if you're fed up with eBay and want to look for an alternative, there are plenty of choices as well. One of the notable alternatives is Depop, a UK based startup with tens of millions of items bought and sold so far as claimed.
Depop is a shopping app similar to eBay but uniquely designed with some additional features.
In exploring products from the app, you can view items in a list form or in a grid of pictures similar to Instagram. To search only the items of your interest, you can enter a keyword or filter the items by location and payment mode.
Each of the products is clearly indicated with necessary details, including the seller, product pictures and pricing. You can also read or leave comments on the items, share product info with your friends, or communicate with sellers via a private message.
Selling your stuff via Depop is easy and straightforward. Tap "Sell" from the menu, take a picture of the product, then pick a category, indicate a price and give some descriptions with #hashtags to make it easier for others to find your item.
If you're using social media, this app allows you to share items you list for sale via your Facebook or Twitter accounts. You get a higher chance to have your stuff sold to your friends if you're active in your social media accounts.
Depop does not charge you a single cent when you list a product for sale. The only cost is probably the time that you spent to take a picture of the product. But if you sell an item successfully, Depop automatically charges your PayPal account after you've received payment from the buyer, while PayPal also charges a small fee for every transaction.
