Today I wanted to share with you my tips and tricks for selling on the app Depop. If you don’t know what Depop is, it’s an app where you can sell new or gently worn items that you don’t want anymore! I really recommend using it because not only can you declutter your closet, but you can also make a few extra bucks.
When you haven’t sold many items on Depop, you can get discouraged and feel as if you’ll never make a sale. I’m here to tell you that this is not the case! You will be able to make some sales eventually, and hopefully these tips help you out.
Tip Number One: Update Your Items Regularly. This tip is extremely important so that multiple people will be able to see your items. All you have to do on the app is click edit, and then press save. You don’t even need to edit anything or add more to the description. It’s good to do this because then it updates how long ago the item was posted. For example, instead of saying two weeks ago, it will change to ‘just now.’ This will then allow your item to pop up as a recent upload, helping more customers to see it.
Tip Number Two: Reach Out To Potential Customers. It is so important to make sure you’re interacting with other Depop users. I do this by making sure to respond to comments and direct messages when I receive them. Besides this, I also send out a direct message whenever someone favorites an item or follows me.
Tip Number Three: Post Good Quality Photos. Pictures are a major part of Depop. You can’t sell an item without a picture of it. I recommend taking good quality photos of your items. Also, if an item has flaws/some wear to it, show that too! Make sure you include as many details, both good and bad, in your photos. Also, if your item is wearable, posting a picture of you wearing it is always a good idea.
Tip Number Four: Use Your Hashtags. Descriptions are also very important when trying to sell on Depop. In your description, you should be completely honest and give as much information as you can. However, it’s also very important to use your hashtags! This will help your items pop up when someone searches a key word that you’ve included. Make sure that your hashtags are relevant though. It’s not going to do you any good to post hashtags that don’t go with you item.
Tip Number Five: Make The Experience Memorable. Make buying from your Depop shop a unique experience. I personally do this by including handwritten notes in each order. Additionally, I wrap each item in pretty tissue paper and make sure it’s packed well. Find a way to make your store stick out! It will encourage buyers to come shop with you again.
I hope these tips were helpful! If you have any questions, feel free to leave them in the comments and I’ll get back to you.
